FluentU is an immersive language-learning platform, based on the idea that people learn best when offered memorable and authentic experiences. The platform offers a whole host of different language courses, from French to Japanese, and features a mobile app so that you can learn whilst on the go.

 

One of the features of learning a language using FluentU that I liked best, and that I thought set it apart from other similar platforms, was the variety of methods used to help you develop your language skills. Rather than just make you repeat words and phrases, or show you flashcards, FluentU adopts a range of fun content to help you learn, including movie trailers, music videos, interviews, comedy skits, YouTube channels and cartoons. This allows you to learn without even really feeling as though you’re learning, perhaps the best way to tackle a new language.

 

There are two price plans when undergoing a course with FluentU, Basic and Plus. Basic is priced at $15 USD per month and includes the app, unlimited word lookup and unlimited videos and audios. Plus costs $30 USD per month, however it comes with everything that Basic includes, as well as unlimited flashcards, unlimited quiz, spaced repetition and the ability to create your own flashcards. They also offer a seven-day free trial to help you gain an idea if the course is right for you and can be cancelled at any time.

 

A problem I encountered with learning a language using FluentU was that although it was great for getting to grips with the basics of a language, it became less useful after the intermediate stage and did not offer much in the way of developing an advanced level. I also found that it could be quite heavy on new vocabulary and phrases, with the potential to leave you feeling dizzy with how much you have had to take on board.

Pros
  • Offers a wide variety of fun methods to help you learn a new language
  • Choice of two price plans to get the right method for you
Cons
  • Plus price plan is expensive compared to alternatives
  • Only useful up to intermediate level

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧
