Found a good ap for learning portugese

I’ve spent that past week playing with several apps - seems there aren’t many with European portugese! I know I will eventually want a class/ tutor but right now I need to learn some vocabulary & need a way to do a few minutes here & there throughout my day. Most that I tried were boring & while I could learn on them, I didn’t enjoy it. Memrise has been the best for me - the ap has video clips of people speaking so I can see how they move their mouths & has an explore feature where I can point my phone at something & it will show the name of it in portugese & say it & allow me to take a photo & save it. It’s made it fun enough so that I want to play with it all day.

I am also using Memrise. I tried several others but this is my favorite so far.

I've never really got on with Apps, but I've heard other people say Drops is good too. I've always preferred podcasts and videos, and even have my own YouTube channel where I recommend video resources for learning Portuguese, take a look if you like: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-nl7p4q8sov-RkgtFEw_Iw

  • @pamalcobaca thanks so much for sharing that! I will check that out - I think once I’ve learned some vocabulary, I will enjoy that a lot. I tried drops & was bored with it. The video clips in this app as well as the variety of learning games holds my interest. I’ve learned twice as many words with it in 3 days as I did with drops in a week.

@MartinP I use Memrise as well and it has been really helpful. 

I was unable to locate any flashcards for purchase in European Portuguese (even if I have to print them at home).  I found a link to 20 decks someone created and linked to on reddit...

How long have you used Memrise and curious what were the others you tried?

@let-t-speak I have been using MemRise for about six weeks. Others I tried were Busuu and Duolingo. I liked Busuu in many ways, but it was weak on Euro Portuguese. Learning the language is a challenge, but I keep grinding.

@let-t-speak I know Portuguese Language Lessons have flashcards on Quizlet as part of their online classes
