"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. But, it ended up that I was spending more time making the flashcards than studying. FluentU really solves this."
- David Brown

Unique & Incredibly Effective


Given the monthly price tag, I was planning on canceling when I got to the end of my free trial. However I canceled other lifestyle memberships just so I could keep FluentU.

Just 2 days into using the app, I found myself singing in French to my dog, customizing the words to describe him LOL. And I found myself very intuitively learning French grammar, way more than when I sat down and tried to absorb a French grammar workbook.

I love the variety of videos in the “browse” menu. I haven’t even tried the actual courses yet because I find myself learning so organically just by watching the videos—ranging from silly little acted out ditties, to movie trailers, to animated cartoons, etc—and then taking the ensuing quizzes.

The quizzes cross-examine you in so many different ways you learn the materials forward, backward, and sideways—by speaking it into the microphone and checking your pronunciation, listening and translating to English, reading and translating to French, multiple choice, fill in the blank, and so on.

I couldn’t recommend it enough. Yes it’s pricy. But out of all my French training materials, I’ve noticed the biggest changes in my learning using this app.

The last few updates have introduced many bugs; one of which is inexcusable in a language app. When the app is first opened, the translations are correct. After a short time using, the translations are in the incorrect place. I have reported this twice. DEVS say their team is small. Not a valid excuse.

Original Review:
Great app for learning the grammar and vocabulary of Chinese. The gamification of language learning is done well here. It would benefit from a greater variety of example sentences for each dictionary input and within the quizzes. The text to speech tones are not that great. They should just record native speakers of putonghua for each example sentence.

Thanks very much for your feedback! We're very sorry about this issue. We understand the urgency, and are working on it now. For now, it may be best to log on via the website, as this bug is related to the app only. Go to -Again, we apologize and thank you for your patience.

Good idea, terrible execution


FluentU is a really great idea: learning a language through videos of native speakers on a wide range of topics. Learning words in context and working on word order is really useful. Unfortunately, though, this app misses one of the great selling points of the method: instead of interacting with the videos, you get a robot voice that often mispronounces phrases (at least in French). The translations are often quite off. I really like FluentU, and I appreciate that they’re constantly making improvements — if they could just get the app to the same functionality as the website (or close), it would be fantastic.
