I really really like the fact that the videos are real authentic videos. It makes it much more interesting. Learning Chinese almost becomes an afterthought to the fact that you are watching cool videos. Niel, Confused Laowai

Understand and truly enjoy real world videos

Our interactive captions will bring real-world videos within reach for you.

Language Immersion Online

All captions are subtitled and translated. Click on any word to see an in-context definition, along with example sentences.

While many videos come with subtitles, there was never an easy way to look up vocabulary words, or pause the video and make sure you really understood what was being said... that is until now. FluentU understands our pain, and picks up the pieces where all those other sites fall short. Jacob Gill, iLearnMandarin

Learn a Language through Videos
The quiz sections are the most successful I've seen to integrate spaced learning of vocab, and not be bored out of your mind. The power of seeing an actor speak, hearing their pronunciation, and linking it to the Chinese character re-enforces learning. It is challenging and makes you think about how the Chinese language works. Keith Robinson

I am loving FluentU. At first I was a little hesitant about the price, though I understood why the price was higher, since this was all done by a person. I figured I would try the free trial. After... Continue reading

In only 4 months, I've gotten to a comfortable A2 level in German thanks in large part to my practice on FluentU! I'm actually entertained by studying when I use it; it doesn't feel like work!

I really like learning with the videos. I have studied using other methods and it was very hard to put what you were learning into context. With the videos, not only are you learning new vocabulary,... Continue reading

I love the videos that allow us to use our listening skills. The real life conversations force us to listen and try to understand the language coming at us. So very different, from knowing what to... Continue reading

I've learned a little Spanish vocabulary growing up in Texas, but not enough to speak it, by far. Within a week of working on this program I am able to form sentences. I find rote memorization to be... Continue reading

It's the program I've always wanted, because when I try to watch Spanish clips on youtube a lot of the time the subtitles are wrong. Even if they're right, I always have to have google translate open... Continue reading

I like the design, it's simple and elegant. The content is extremely helpful. I was able to pronounce my first sentence in German after watching about 10 videos.

Pairing word repetition with actual French speakers is more challenging and makes the language stick to a geezer brain like mine.

What helps me the most in FluentU is the video content. Being exposed to naturally-spoken Chinese is the best defense against a language growing rusty in my experience.
Jason P. Cochrane
Mandarin Chinese isn't really a language you can learn just from books; you need to hear the words in context over and over again before they finally sink in. Videos are great for that, and the... Continue reading

Before using this app, I placed out in my college curriculum for Chinese. Due to this (and my age), I have a year with no Chinese courses to take. I didn't want to lose my skills so I downloaded this... Continue reading
