WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"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
"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."

Bug fixes and performance improvements
I have tried so many times to cancel my subscription. They make it impossible. I will get this thing cancelled! They are thieves! How else do you describe it when they keep billing and make it impossible to cancel?
I have already written a review previous to this one, but because this app and the educational content within it is so effective, a second review is more then justified. I am now on my third video of Mandarin and I am starting to notice something unique to this platform compared to other apps that offer Mandarin. FluentU seems to be endless. The videos themselves are very addicting because they are interesting besides being comprehensive in their content. The online dictionary that is connected to all their videos have separate sample sentences attached to each word that’s in the video. You press on a word within the video, a dictionary pops up with the meaning of the word and three sample sentences using that word. I have spent between 4 to 7 hours daily and the more I study the more content appears before me! It just never ends. The actors in the videos are amazing, and there is a lot of humor. For example in the video ‘Going in for a job interview’ the guy who pays the role of manager looks and sounds like a real no-nonsense boss’. It was really entertaining. These videos are divided into several parts and one must complete the homework before the app lets you go from one part to the next. In this way the app ensures that you learn the content. You are forced to study and pass several tests because you want to go to the next part of the video just to see what happens next in the story. Thank you to the team at Fluenz for all the hard work. I can see myself being subscribed for the next 7 years for sure.
I thought I would be able to make my own flashcards more efficiently with this app, turned out it just a bank of premade, downloadable packs of cards and some video/audio content, all of that you can get for free and get more out of your learning using just classic anki and youtube. 20 buck for it is a rip off.
Dear Sir, (/or ma’am). I was unable to give your app a full 5🏅 Rating. Is there anything “wrong with it?” No. Does it have “production value”? An awful lot of it, “I” would say. Why? The DevTeam. The DevGroup. What DevGroup is this? Just look at the... oh. I could get a /botnet to do “that”, (but I won’t). I have a story... I knew a man. So at this point I could just record “my” story, and everyone would learn. Travel? Trabajo? Para mi, it suck$$! So I learned. To stop worrying. And say those words... Another town another place, Another Truck, another Race. Algún otro conjunto de cicatrices para "presumir" Некоторые другие набор ШРАМов, чтобы "похвастаться" /We.are.the.Road-Crew Don’t forget us... Sincerely, A Friend of Lemmy. P.S: I was not paid to do this. Okay, I paid myself... but that’s about it. (not. Enough) /Starving Artist
When I tried to open the FluentU app it refused to open so I had to delete it
I’ve been studying Korean for quite awhile and while I do see progress it’s slow going! I’ve tried multiple apps, Programs, and books and so far this seems to be helping me more than any of them. I’m hopeful that I’ll see a lot more progress with this app!
The best language app I’ve found by far. If I were working for Babel, I’d be feeling nervous.
This app has me conflicted because for the most part I do think it’s is a very good way to learn a language. But some of the execution is just off. The filter options can be slightly confusing. The UI just seems low-end for a service that is paid for monthly. And I’m having issues with taking the quizzes even though I’ve watched the videos before. If I’m paying for the service, I don’t see why I need to watch the video first anyway.
This is the most fun I’ve ever had studying a language! I know I could get places, but unfortunately the price is so high i’ll have to cancel when my two weeks are over.
I love how it is a combination of basic review of grammar, but also includes pop culture videos to practice comprehension.
I downloaded this for my kid and this happens?! I can’t even get into the app just because of a username and password!?
Very good app for learning languages (I am learning Japanese). The interface needs to be updated for the iPhone X. One year on and still hasn’t been updated. Did get a full screen experience for 2-3 days however latest update went back to the black bars at the top and bottom. What is going on?
What is wrong with your iPad app? It shuts down as soon as I get past the password and only wakes in vertical mode.
Whilst I'm sure it's a great app, unfortunately I can't open it because it closes every time :( I really want to use it
An app is not iPad-friendly if you have to turn your iPad to vertical to use it. Until your app can be used on an iPad in the horizontal form (which is how an iPad is intended to be used) you’ll only be getting a one star rating from me.
I’ve used many language learning apps over time, this is definitely by far the most comprehensive and interactive apps. Makes remembering and absorbing the information more natural and interesting.
Really great app for me.
I subscribe to both Duolingo and FluentU and have to confess that I’ve only been using FluentU for a few weeks and Duolingo for about 18 months. FluentU is for an Aussie almost four times as expensive as Duolingo if you compare the cost of the premium access. I decided to try a year of FluentU and do the lessons in tandem when Duolingo was all too frustrating with a complete lack of grammar explanations and google searches were always bringing up good simple ones on FluentU. The app is excellent but not always intuitive to work out. The great strength is that they reply quickly to questions and are extremely helpful. Also there are far more video clips than one can trawl through for extra immersion and getting an ear for the language-considering the cost per year of language classes locally it is very much worth the investment:)
I hadn’t used the app after my free trial ended which was nearly 2 months ago. Upon transferring money to my spending account the app charged me 349.99 dollars for a premium 1 year account unbeknownst to me. I have tried emailing the company and am yet to hear back from them about a refund. This is outrageous and very dishonest. The company should be ashamed, as I am now stuck overseas with very limited funds. Not happy at all.
Desperately needs updating to a more modern look. Has many advantages over Duolingo such as more realistic audio and better structure.
Really like the look of this app, it targets exactly what other learning apps lack - French listening skills - he content is really enjoyable and the game type experience is motivating. The con - an eye watering €33 euro a month, is simply way too expensive and not going to happen for many users of the free content (that seems to get trickier to use as time goes on), many people think Babble is too expensive and that is at €20 euro for 3 months. Unfortunately, i simply cannot justify the cost in my head.
Can you bring iPhone X support, that would be much appreciated
Amazing app!!! Improved my German dramatically! I would recommend this app to anyone trying to comprehend a language! It helps you with listening, vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar! I can't believe something so useful actually exists!!
This app is very usual Easy to use Relevant It's free too What else do you need !
Very clear and interesting， good for Pinyin and characters
I have been trying to learn German for a couple of years using the iPad, after giving up on expensive cd based courses. I use Duolingo daily and a few others. I give about an hour a day. I needed something with more extended listening, more challenging learning yet capable of helping a lone learner, whose power of retention is no longer what it was. I found Fluentu recently and really like the idea of YouTube videos, I like the enormous range of graded exercises. I am still on elementary and newbie levels which have sufficient variety and "meat" to keep me going. I love the revision exercises. I don't know how far I will get with this but I am enjoying the ride. This is an excellent addition to my attempt to learn German.
This app strikes a great balance between learning and fun. Very user friendly. Its creators show a real enthusiasm for language learning!
Nice application not having enough time to try it but looks good!
