One of the biggest challenges when learning Chinese is that it’s hard to find material that’s at your level. Either it’s too hard or it’s too easy — never just right.
Because language learning resources generally have a one size fits all approach — if you’re a beginner, do this. If you’re an advanced learner, do that.
To make it so that learners have more personalization, FluentU has handpicked materials based on a specific user’s vocabulary and interests.
How? With personalized clips!
Personalized clips means that we’ll teach you new words with short clips that are selected pecifically for you.
They are based on each individual user’s vocabulary and their interests. The materials you learn with are different from the materials that your friend learns with — even if you’re at the same level.
If you like politics, music videos and culture, then watch videos and learn materials that are focused on those topics. If you’re more into science and tech or business topics, then learn from those specific topic related videos!
But we take it a step further with personalized clips because we keep track of every single word you learn and suggest future clips based on those words. We teach you by building on what you know. The clips you are shown are totally different from what other people are shown.
In other words, we make sure that you are repeatedly shown the words you’re learning, by showing them in different contexts. We control the amount of new words that are included in any clip.
This way, learners are given the perfect amount of content by learning new words (not too many at a time) while reviewing and reinforcing the ones they’ve learned.
So, if you’re into learning Chinese and want to apply it someway to business, then watch videos under the business topic. You’d be able to learn words like “boss,” “raise” and “company.” You can add these vocabulary words anytime to your vocabulary list by clicking “prioritize” and voila, it’s there.
FluentU then suggests relevant clips that include words you’ve learned (boss, raise & company) as well as give you new ones like “coworker” and “salary.”
Get ready to experience a new level of personalized language learning! It’s easy — go to FluentU to sign in and just hover over a video and click on the green “learn” button that appears.
FluentU takes real-world videos—like music videos, movie trailers, news and inspiring talks—and turns them into personalized language learning lessons.
