Description

Tired of boring textbooks? FluentU brings language learning to life with real-world videos! Learn Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, German, Japanese, English, Russian, Korean, and Italian with FluentU. "Great app. To my knowledge the best on the market. You created something unique and new!" - Felix Wedel "It is more helpful than any other tool I've used. I had been using podcasts before and trying to make flashcards, and that worked pretty well.

Great job on an aesthetically pleasing app and an incredibly functional one." - Justin Price "This concept in FluentU is amazing. It's such a great way to help you understand a spoken language and the way you break it down is amazing." - Demi Pradolin "This app is so fun and useful - the best Chinese language learning app I've ever used." - Richard Jun Learn a language with music videos, movie trailers, news, and inspiring talks.

    So far loving the app! Great tool in learning a language.
  • Why advertise what you don’t sell?

    Why did this show up in a search for “learn Swedish”? You don’t offer Swedish as a language you teach! Where else do bad business practices reflect? I’d be afraid to give these folks permission to bill me.
  • I really want to love this app, but...

    At first, I really liked this app, but I realized that it had some major flaws: 1) The videos are really short and contain a large number of commercials. I don’t want to learn french from jingles. 2) I have been a member for over 1 year, but there is little fresh material 3)There are no « collections » of videos, i.e., a series of connected videos like Yabla has. 4) The iPad apps is nothing but a big iPhone app that doesn’t even use landscape mode. This is inexcusable for an app for a subscription that costs so much. 5) In all modes you cannot maximum the video. Horrible waste of screen real estate. I won’t be renewing again (i forgot to cancel my subscription last year so I automatically got sucked into a whole new year and was not able to cancel it even on the next day).
  • Good but

    You should add a landscape orientation.
  • Moves fast but a very smart app

    I started with some experience of Japanese-otherwise I’m not sure I could have absorbed the kanji and hiragana script so quickly. The method is good, though. I encourage anyone working in Japanese to get to know the keyboard as well as possible before going too far-it’s tricky especially to access katakana (necessary for imported words) on the iOS Japanese keyboard. (It’s easy and free to access the keyboard, though-just search online for info.)
  • Best language app I’ve experienced thus far!

    I like fluentu. but when I use it on the phone, there are so many bugs and it take so long to load videos and dialogues.(it's not my internet. it works fine.)
  • Too fast

    I gave this 3 stars because the audio player you have to do before doing the quiz goes wayyyyy too fast. They should put it in the app so that you can put the speed at what you learn at. Also it should show the different levels of pronouns with the verb you are trying to learn at the beginning of each lesson. Everyone learns a different way and they should take that into account. And I have bought several different spanish apps and they all have their flaws in one way or another.
  • Great App! I do think that it is too expensive

    I pay 29.00 per month. I thought that I would use this app for a short burst but I love it and I want more time with it. Even that I think that 29.00 per month is too much. Unfortunately I am going to have to cancel my subscription soon.
  • Great if used correctly

    This app gives you many advantages that others don’t, but it can feel overwhelming to beginners. A few tips: 1) Study the tones first. Train yourself to hear the tones and see if you can type the pinyin on your keyboard based on what you heard. Mimic the tones you hear. This app speaks them very slowly at first so you can hear the tone, then repeats it at a normal pace. DO NOT study with pinyin because you will use it like a crutch and it will really slow down your character recognition pace. 2) Do one playlist per day, don’t go crazy. Language learning isn’t a race, it’s not even a marathon; it’s a lifelong commitment. If you learn even 10 words per day and you learn them very well, then by the end of a year you will at least have basic conversational fluency. Learning 20, 30, 40 words per day will test your memorization ability, but it won’t improve your language skill. 3) Open your mouth! Repeat the words you hear in the exercises. If you’re not doing this, you’re skipping a very important exercise of these lessons. In the “audio” portions of the lessons, let it run and repeat a few times while repeating the words each time. They’re usually less than a minute, so it goes quick. Aim for 7-10 repeats before doing the quiz.
