How It Works

Create a course
Choose your languages, then add your terms and definitions as questions and answers - either import from another site or spreadsheet, or add questions manually

Study your terms
Start with learn mode to learn your new terms in the mode of your choice: Flashcards, multiple choice, typing, listening & more

Come back to practice
Once you've learned your terms, they will be assigned a 'practice due' time. Return to Memory to practice and stay ahead.
Tip: Set a notification for us to remind you when it's time to practice

Creating your own course is the best way to get results from Memory. Memory is specifically designed for those who wish to create courses and learn terms they wish to study with.

You don't have to, though. You can also use any of the existing pre-built courses which have been created by other users and which are set to public mode. Browse the courses page to see what's available.

Yes, after creating a course you can use the 'Import' mode from the create-course screen to import either from a spreadsheet, export or raw text from another site.

You can also export your course for usage on other sites at any time using the 'export' mode from the create-course screen.

You can try out Memory by creating a course with some test questions and answers and study it in learn mode in minutes.

For a basic study set with many questions and levels, allow 20 minutes to create the course and try out the various modes.

Long term learning and space repetition is the core learning style of Memory. This enables you to learn and retain information over a long period of time. You can also adjust your algorithm settings, e.g. setting it to 'Exam cram mode' will enable you to practice and study your information quickly with short repetition intervals.

Memory offers several study modes. Unlike other flashcard apps, we offer study modes such as multiple-choice, listening, speaking, complete the sentence and smart mode.

We offer classrooms, leaderboards, a fully configurable learning algorithm, many settings, the ability to add images and custom audio to your questions and flashcards.

Memory is a modern (launched 2019) approach to online learning.

Yes, schools can use Memory for free with unlimited students. Create a classroom, add your courses, invite students and monitor their progress.

There is no charge for schools - you can create classrooms, as many courses as you wish, and conduct live classes at any time. You can also use classrooms to add students so they can study your courses in their own time.

No, all features of Memory are offered for free. Memory is a free alternative to paid self-study applications. Memory is non-commercial - we don't charge subscriptions, advertise or give your data to other companies.

That doesn't mean Memory is a lesser solution - Memory is fully featured with automatic audio, images, various study modes, configurable algorithms, leaderboards, classrooms and more.

In fact, a common criticism of Memory is that there are too many features and buttons - but you can use as few or as many as you wish.

Whilst Memory isn't available from the appstore or Google play, you can visit in your browser and add it to the homescreen to obtain app-style functionality.

Available Learning Modes


Flashcards are a good way to learn fast. Test and improve your knowledge by reading the front of the card, deciding what the answer is in your head (or say it aloud as some users do) and flip the card and tell us if you were correct or not. The more often you get them correct, the less you will need to see them.


Smart mode is a combination of all modes which are intelligently rotated based on your learning ability. If you are not sure where to start, try smart mode. Smart mode initially starts off with easy modes such as typing and will advance to more difficult modes such as typing and speaking as you learn questions.


Practice mode is used to revise the questions you have already learned. Every time you answer a question, our system marks a date for reviewal depending on your performance. When questions are due for practice, your dashboard will show you all due questions.


Select precisely how you wish to learn: Choose your question type, answer type, languages and which way around you wish to answer the question. Manual learning mode gives you full control over your practice experience.

Weighted Custom

Weighted custom mode allows you to choose any balance of modes. Drag the sliders to set the frequency that you wish to see each mode. Custom mode lets you learn exactly how you want. To get started, select custom mode, choose User Settings, click advanced, and adjust the sliders for question times.


Multiple choice is a good way to learn and practice fast. The answers are intelligently generated based on the topics of your course and its content. Simply select the correct answer to learn and test your memory.


Typing mode is a great method to learn rapidly. From our research, by typing words, you will remember them faster than using multiple choice alone

Test / Exam

Test / exam mode enables you to test your progress. Questions will be asked, but you will not find out if you got them correct or not until the end, at which point you will get a summary card showing your progress. Repeat tests regularly to see your performance improve with time.


Listening mode is great for practicing your listening ability and speed to translate answers. Listen to the audio and select or type the correct answer. For language courses only.


Speaking mode is to help your pronunciation and memory recall. With dictate, you should say what you read and hear. With translate you must read the phrase in your own language, then say the answer aloud in the opposite language.

Speaking & Listening

This mode is a combination of speaking and listening, and will allow you to practice both in rotation.


Gaps mode automatically extracts keywords such as nouns, verbs and adjectives from your questions. You are then asked to fill in the gaps in the sentences from an appropriate word bank. This tests and improves your vocabulary retention.
