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. 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 Learn a language with music videos, movie trailers, news, and inspiring talks.

  • Bad way to make registration so to login

    By H2O Dandana ceo
    I don’t trust this app. they asked me my password again in apple account after that I accept to download it with fingerprint. so I login as they ask to my apple account with the password, but this login should not come!!
  • Stay away—free trial was not a trial and immediately charged for the subscription

    By 757Ewr
    Disappointing—I really thought this was a great concept, but despite very clear markings that the free trial would give you a two week period to look at the app with no charges until after the two weeks was up, my bank account was immediately charged the almost $250 yearly subscription. Thankfully the App Store refunded my money, but it will take me 3-5 days to see the credit back. Until the developers have this billing worked out, it is too much money to be charged for an unknown no matter how good the concept.

  • Effective Tool

    By passionate about languages
    I find the FluentU application extremely effective in developing my language. By using this application on a regular basis, I could remember the new Vocabulary and phrases for a very long time compared to attending a course in a Language school to be honest. The application is easy to use, has a wide variety of video clips for all levels and a system to review the learned vocabulary. It’s really great and I highly recommend it.
  • I’ve changed my mind. Don’t waste your money

    By RuolingOnARiver
    When I initially subscribed to FluentU, I thought it was awesome. Watch videos in the target language and pause with a simple hover over with the mouse (on the computer). Vocab lists with key words. It seemed like the perfect alternative to textbooks or podcasts. Now that I’ve been using it for almost a year, I must say I’m incredibly disappointed. The app has a very robotic voice for sentences and doesn’t connect to videos well. This means phone or tablet review time becomes painful to the ears (I can’t handle the robotic sound for that long) or is void of listening all together. The website has the same annoying robotic voice, and you can’t even turn it off there. Videos don’t have consistent audio, so if you’re doing review, you go from straining to hear one video to getting your eardrums blasted out the next. You can download PDFs of the transcripts, but you cannot download word lists or copy anything from the website or PDFs. This means that anytime you don’t know a word (Chinese characters!), you can’t copy and paste it into an online dictionary to check. This is especially infuriating when they use the wrong character (this happens at least once every 2 vids I watch with traditional characters) and you’re trying to figure out if the character really is the wrong one. When they do use the wrong characters, they take forever to make the changes, if they do so at all. There’s a backlog of wrong characters from November that I reported that still haven’t been changed now, in June. Not being able to download word lists also means you can’t export your word lists to websites/apps that work way better for memorization, like Memrise and Duolingo’s tiny cards. Finally, the Chinese videos don’t have anything from more recently than 2014. While learning about Obama meeting with HuJintao is interesting, there’s been a massive change in world events (and leaders) since then. The most recent tech video is about the iPhone 5. For $30/ month, I expect there to be much newer materials than that. It’s like FluentU got a customer base and then decided that they weren’t going to take the time and use that subscriber money to add any new content. For now, it’s a waste of time and money. Duolingo and Memrise are perfectly usable in their free versions, and significantly more sensibly priced for their paid materials.
  • It’s been really helpful

    By Zaharaa
    This app really has been helpful for me trying to maintain and learn Japanese from half a world away. The daily reminders help me to keep to my goals of visiting it everyday, and the videos are actually culturally relevant. I’ve been able to learn a lot, even though I’m not physically among people who speak the language right now. It’s also great that the staff will respond to questions and concerns of its customers, and actually take what we say into mind. One change I believe would be really helpful is to offer higher daily time goals. The cap is at 30 minutes right now, or 2000 points. The gaining of points toward the daily goal is super motivating, which is why I love the app. I find myself wanting to do more than 30 minutes of review and learning with the app but when I hit that “Daily Goal Achieved,” the motivation goes away. Keep up the great work!!
  • Charges

    This is is no annoying it charged my dad $239.99 I thought it was free
  • The best language app out there

    By SamanthaJewel
    I was hesitant because of the price, however i have to say out of all the apps I’ve tried i love this one the best. Being able to watch the videos then you can take mini quizzes and even save words into your word bank is pretty amazing. I feel I’m learning so much more. I still have a teacher but using this app along with my Russian tutor has been very helpful. The price is worth it for me for what I’m getting out of it
