Mémorable provides 10 minute lessons, 5 days per week, for advanced French speakers (C1 and above). The themes of each lesson consist of topics such as history, economy, politics, art, sports, science, and technology.
The premise is simple: you will receive three extracts on a given cultural theme in the form of either infographics, video clips, or readings, and then respond to a series of questions. The questions are based either on what you have read or watched, or on general knowledge about the topic. The goal is to learn, understand, and memorize culturally relevant concepts. In the corrections after each lesson, you will be provided with a series of articles or videos from the subscription-based site Le Monde to enrich your understanding of the theme.
Although Mémorable emphasizes learning and memorization, you are mostly expected to achieve these by reading. There are questions that prompt recall, but a large portion consists of re-reading corrections to incorrect responses.
Mémorable is recommended for advanced French learners who want to practice their comprehension through condensed articles on a variety of cultural topics. If you enjoy reading the news or history books, then this may be an enjoyable
