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. But it ended up that I was spending more time making the flashcards than studying. FluentU really solves this." - David Brown "FluentU has quickly become one of my favorite language-learning tools. 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 PLUS SUBSCRIPTION FluentU is available as a monthly ($29.99 for Plus) or yearly subscription ($239.99 for Plus).

  • Great, but not to be used by itself

    This is one of the best language learning apps, I’ve come across. The videos offer you a great way to develop your listening skills. The quiz sections are nice to develop reading/writing, but the live videos help you work on your comprehension. That being said, this won’t help you master a language alone. If you have a music streaming service, find music in your target language and work on listening and translating slowly. The music helps sink it into your brain better if you’re actively listening. So, while it could always be improved, this is an excellent app
  • Can’t use app without payment details

    They force you to subscribe to a monthly subscription to even TRY the app in hopes you’ll forget the free trial and get charged $30 per month. The fact that they don’t let you try the app before entering payment information is a red flag, they are betting on that you’ll forget the trial and at least get a month or two charge out of you which is shady, don’t waste your time, there are other apps out there

    This app has a lot of potential. I love how it has videos and offers real life examples. But the app is glitchy and the forward/backward function won’t work. It also has an issue with getting stuck on a phrase and not showing the proper translations during the freeze. Great idea of an app but didn’t work for me personally!
  • It’s a fraud

    Don’t do it ... they charge the bill before the trial period expires, in my case they charged 240$ the same day, the first day of my trial period.
  • Really useful

    This is a really useful app, I love it. It was frustrating to go onto YouTube and look for videos with accurate subtitles, and then manually google the words I didn’t know. This has a wide variety of videos all in one place, and it’s very handy to be able to look up words just by tapping them. It’s worth the money to me. I haven’t done much with the basic videos provided. I learned my French grammar basics elsewhere. I mostly go with the movie trailers, music videos, and informational videos taken from YouTube, to practice listening skills and build vocab. One thing I would like is an option to require me to give a correct answer to all questions before finishing the quiz. Bring the questions back again if there is a mistake. Sometimes I just hit the Check button by accident and then I don’t get a chance to test my knowledge of that material.

    The quizzes really make you prove you understand words and phrases by putting them in other contexts. I studied Spanish academically for 7 years, have visited Spanish-speaking countries, and have studied an additional 1.5 years simply out of desire to truly become fluent. For that you really need to be immersed and speak it every day with those around you. No app can provide that, but FluentU does a fantastic job exposing you to that language as it is spoken in its normal cadence and rhythm. Learning Spanish this way is something I wish I’d been able to do from the beginning; it wouldn’t have taken me so long to get where I am. Watch the videos. Don’t worry that it might seem impossibly hard. If you don’t fail sometimes, you won’t improve. Keep it up, and you’ll see incredible progress.
  • This isn’t free

    I wouldn’t buy this because it cost money to learn on this thing just use YouTube.If you can buy this than you can buy YouTube.
  • Free trial with credit card only

    By Applsjunknow
    Was not able to use the app as a credit card it required to begin the free trial. This outdated free trial experience was provided by apps in the hope that you would forget to unsubscribe and then end up being charged. If this app ever decides to allow for unrestricted free trials like many other language apps I would be happy to give it a whirl. Until then you get one star having the credit card requirement, and I will not try your app.
  • FluentU for español

    By Forty four pikes
    FluentU for Spanish is great! There is a vast variety of material to choose from. There is one tiny flaw: in my version the user can’t respond to indicate the tilde for the letter n in a word like tomano or Espanol. Other than that , this app is really helpful.
