After years of failing to learn languages on Duolingo, I switched to Memrise

I grew up as a trilingual person, speaking Arabic natively, French quasi-natively, and English since I was eight years old. I was pretty happy with this versatile knowledge until I met my husband and he started teaching me some basic Spanish too. I spent a few months parsing Spanish organically — it’s relatively easy if you already speak French and someone explains to you the basic rules. Then I graduated to Duolingo to (supposedly) take my language learning to the next level. I gave the app try after try, but the end result is non-equivocal: Duolingo doesn’t work for me. So I moved my language learning to Memrise and I have nothing but positives to say about it.
