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).

  • Question about access

    By jzxeq
    So for clarity, if we purchase the annual and/or the monthly we will have full access to ALL the languages?
  • Really thorough training

    I love the teaching method in this, it's very engaging and super helpful hearing words and phrases in different contexts to learn them completely. My one complaint is that when you get something right, a big green circle shows up to congratulate you but it covers up the sentences that I'm trying to re-read. Not that big a deal, but just the sentence highlighted in green to say it's correct would be enough for me. Thanks FluentU for this epic language learning app!!!
  • Needs Improvement to Match Web Version

    While the web version is great, the app is missing a key component — the video clips during the quizzes. On the web app, you could improve your listening skills by playing a clip of a YouTube video and answering a question. On the web app, you mostly can only rely on an automated pronunciation robot, which is wrong most of the time. Please make changes to the mobile app to match the experience on the web app.
  • Technically works, but buggy and janky

    Don’t expect any UI polish. - Images pop in and out as you scroll. - Audio will only sometimes play while the app is in the background. - Forward/backward controls put the subtitles out of sync with the audio. - Dragging the week slider has random effects on the player, including jumping you right past the quiz to the next lesson. - At the end of a video, the final subtitle is replaced with the first subtitle. - Sometimes videos play twice and I’m not sure it’s on purpose. - Tapping a word makes the whole screen jump left for no perceivable reason, then it shows the definition after a pause. - No clear instruction on what to do when a course is up for review… everything just turns orange, but only some orange buttons make it blue again. - Subtly different interaction than on the web, so switching between the two is confusing. (For example, some videos on the web are audio-only on iOS.) - Two loading spinners appear on the screen at a time sometimes. - No loading spinners have cancel buttons. - Going back one screen often resets your scroll position so you lose your place. - Etc. But hey, it hasn’t crashed yet, and it gets the job done.
  • Don’t mind the 1-star reviews...this app is great!!

    This app has been an absolutely invaluable tool in aiding my Japanese language studies and has allowed me to improve at a much faster rate than I would’ve without it. The people who are complaining that it isn’t free are just cheapskates
  • False advertising

    When I saw the ad for this app, I thought “ooh, something that might actually help me!” I download it thinking I could start almost immediately when... it told me to pay to use the app. Now I know it is giving you stuff from other places in the world like Japan and Mexico, but they should get rid of the prices, or actually tell people that it cost money! 😡😡😡💵🚫
  • Useless

    By Alex Developer
    Two weeks “free” trial is just a scam. I can’t even open the course to see what it’s about or how it works without providing my payment info. Useless. Deleting...
  • like their content but overpriced

    By Lindseygggggggh
    honestly their content helps in immersing yourself in a new language, but it is overpriced at $30 a month (at least i think thats what i pay). yabla is a good, cheap alternative or addition. but their short videos are great
  • Not helpful for speaking only students.

    By Lazlo318
    I only have about 2 years in Japan. I’m not interested in learning kanji or kata/hira. Pimsleur is awesome for me because it focuses on speaking as a posed to Japanese communication as a whole. For serious I’m sure this would be great. But it would be nice to see a break down of words in English writing as an option.
