Ich brauche dich, HiNative.

Today I installed “HiNative” which is pretty much the Best App Ever jk. It’s a triple tie with Duolingo and Memrise. I haven’t been using Memrise for the past few days due to the fact that I’ve been focused more with German @duolingo. 

Anyway, I highly recommend HiNative for language learners who have questions like the usual “how do you say” or asking if your sentences are natural or any question, really.

Learn Language Online for Free: Duolingo vs Memrise

I am currently learning a total of 14 languages from Duolingo and Memrise combined…I’m still a beginner at most languages since the amount I studied varies depending on my mood. Anyway, you can check out both apps/sites on our own but if you need a guide, here’s a little comparison between the two.

Duolingo Pros:
-structured learning
-a lot of exercise and vocabulary
Duolingo Cons: 

-exercises might be too overwhelming if you’re not in the mood
-it will take time for you to sound like you know the language (since it’s topic based)
-reviewing is optional (strength bars decrease)

Memrise Pros:
-has more languages offered than Duolingo (although most are “unofficial”)
-varied speakers which will help your listening skills
-teaches you useful expressions so you sound like you know more than you actually do
-has other helpful lessons like vocabularies which will greatly help in your language learning
-reviews you as you learn so you’re sure not to forget things
Memrise Cons:
-“slow” in case you want the fundamentals down all at once
-some lessons or features will tempt you to go pro (at a reasonable price)
