Memrise – Learn All of the Languages with Some Gamification

AppWatch

Did you know that there are over 6,500 languages in the world and that the vast majority of people on the planet only speak ONE? Well, if you’re looking to change this, we’ve got an app for you to check out.

It’s called Memrise.

This app was created in 2010 and has over 35 million users, offers dozens of languages – from Japanese to Danish to Spanish to Italian.

It’s not just comprehensive, but it takes the intimidating task of learning a language out and makes understanding it fun. It uses techniques such as gamification and real-world scenarios to help you understand your new language so you can fall in love with it.

How does it exactly work? For starters, Memrise has created a scientific formula that begins with repetition and building new memories by hearing native speakers, watching videos and using their pronunciation and conversation tools.

From there, the app reinforces those memories that you’ve built for fun, simple, and engaging games. But the language you’ll be learning isn’t just found in a textbook – instead, Memrise uses everyday vocabulary so you can speak like a local.

If you want to pick up a new language faster than ever before, visit Memrise.com today.

Test Covers – Stopping All of the Wandering Eyes

Consumer Update

It’s inevitable, school season is starting back up and depending on who you are, you’ll have a bit of a different take on how you feel about it. If you’re a parent, you’re counting down the days until your child is occupied  for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. But if you’re a student, well, you’re probably dreading the pool closing and the school doors opening.

We get it. Who wants to take tests again? We for one, are glad that part of our lives is over, but here’s one that goes out to all the current hard-working students. Teachers and professors should listen up too.

This new invention, Test Covers, was designed to provide an effective and discreet method to keep tests safe from wandering eyes.

Created by a biology professor, he wanted to find a better solution that providing multiple versions of tests.

The Test Cover folder hides the test from everyone but the test taker and will vow to do the following:

  • Protect students’ answers on bubble and short answer tests
  • Eliminate the need for multiple versions of a test
  • Make it easier to proctor a test, no wandering eyes
  • Increase focus and accuracy in entering answers
  • Reusable, recyclable, and affordable

Simply, the student who takes the test focuses on answering questions without needing to protect their hard-earned answer from certain “glances.”

And though this isn’t meant to be a punishment for cheaters, Test Covers’ method aims to offer a positive solution that deters cheaters from doing anything but concentrating on their own test.

In fact, a survey that was conducted over a 4-year period showed that 85% of 700 community college science students though Test Covers were a great idea and reduced cheating immensely. In addition, several students thought the Test Covers made it simple to fill out bubble forms correctly.

So whether you’re a student, teacher, or parent, head over to testcovers.com for the solution to uncompromised short answer and bubble tests.
