Memrise is a free online language-learning website. It uses flashcards with mnemonics to teach. Users are tested by multiple choice and type-in tests. Memrise was founded by Ed Cooke and Greg Detre.[1][2] Memrise is headquartered in England.

Memrise uses what's called "elaborate encoding" to help users remember different concepts.[3]
