In this post, we will see how to use Memrise to learn Moroccan Arabic, and how to use our Darija course on this platform to get the most out of it, let’s get started!
If you have been following Lingualid for a while (both on the website and on Instagram) you will notice the amount of Darija lessons published, a lot of words and expressions to start your learning journey, but how do you remember all of them?
Practice! That’s the answer, and to help you with that, I created a beginner’s course on Memrise that will help you memorize all that you have learned and recall it easily using my favorite so-called SRS (Spaced Repetition System)
What is SRS?
Good question, Spaced Repetition System (SRS) is a method of reviewing material (a set of words, expressions, definitions… you name it) at systematic intervals. At the beginning of the learning process, the intervals are spaced closely together (for example, one hour- four hours-one day). As the material is reviewed, the intervals become systematically longer (four days-one week-two weeks)
