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).

    This app has a good concept but the UI has problems. Having paid for a monthly subscription then receive message I need a 1000 points to go to a different audio is not ‘friendly’ . I cancelled my subscription
  • Not Worth the Money!

    For how expensive this is they need to be quicker about fixing the inhibiting bugs in the app. It’s ok for learning vocabulary but not good for grammar. Should be more all encompassing at this price.
  • Gone down

    This app was great a year ago but now has gone down the drain. The subtitles would get stuck every time you switch apps and the video would start over, or sometimes it just would do nothing unless you close and reopen the app. I stopped my subscription because of this and it hasn’t gotten better since then.
  • Infinite loop and no Support

    Signed up with the free 2-week trial and am stuck on the screen with that offer. Can’t access anything else and the Support site is telling me my login is incorrect, despite it definitely being correct. Massive turnoff not being able to access anything from a pricy subscription service, including a locked Support feature. Immediate cancel.
  • Will rip you off for $31

    Beware!! The instructions they give you for ‘unsubscribing’ from your iPhone WILL NOT WORK and you will be charged even if you delete the app. I had to call iTunes directly to get it removed and reported the app as possibly fraudulent!! Once iTunes is called it is fairly easy to do with the proper instructions. I wonder how many others have been screwed out of $31 over this racket?
  • No Speaking Practice

    I’ve created my school account and invited my students. As I searched for assignments to give them I can select audio, video (which is a lot of yt), and Flashcards. After listening, speaking comes next in language production but there are no oral language assignments. Even Duolingo has speaking portions that the kids record. When will oral language assignments be added?
  • Looks like a good supplement but...

    Not sure what was wrong with my app and/or device but none of the videos would play/had really long load times. The flash cards worked but I didn’t really download this app for those. It looks like it would be a good tool for people who started out with some basic grammar and vocabulary from another program. Rosetta Stone is still my go-to for now and it comes free through a lot of libraries.

    So I really like the Fluent-U blog a lot, and have always wanted to try out their app/site. I finally got a job and had some money to use on it for Japanese. There’s a 7 day free trial, and then you choose a payment plan. Since I didn’t have $240 to spare at that moment, I figured I would do the $30 a month plan if I liked it. Using it however it was nothing like I expected. Many of what they advertised to have for Japanese, videos and music, they did not have. Most of it was short, like around 30 seconds and majority ads. You could easily find most of the same stuff on YouTube, for free, and do what their doing on your own free of charge using the reiko dictionary app and Viki. So I decided it was most definitely not worth the money. Also within 5 minutes of making the account ( You can choose two payments, $240 all at once for The Whole year or $30 a month, I only know this because I looked it up before making the account, it never asked me to choose a plan however) they charged $240 to my account. $240 I didn’t want to pay and that I also didn’t have and still don’t. I immediately sent an email about this and they replied with that they were sorry for the mistake and we’re fixing it at the moment. That was last Saturday, today is Wednesday, nothing has been done. I sent another email just now, no response yet. However for anyone considering it, I highly advise against it. Not even the trial. There are many better resources, millions of free resources, and textbooks, better worth your money.

    I have a good phone and I guess the screen was meant for a smaller phone because the screen is so small and also I tried to do 2 weeks free and so I put my email and stuff and it doesn’t let me press start because there isn’t a check box for saying I agree to the terms and conditions 😭😭😭😡😡😡🥵🥵🥵 I just want to learn Spanish
