WHAT IS FLUENT FOREVER?
A revolutionary language learning method developed by Gabriel Wyner, an opera singer who needed to learn multiple languages quickly and retain them forever. Fluent Forever's products have evolved from pronunciation trainers into a bestselling book and now into the most crowdfunded app in history. Discover the immersive mobile experience designed to rewire your brain into fluently speaking any new language and hack your memory to remembering it forever.
HOW IS FLUENT FOREVER BETTER?
Rather than distract or briefly entertaining you like other "gamified" language apps out there, Fluent Forever doesn't waste your time with inefficient "bite size" lessons - instead, it immediately gets you correctly pronouncing and hearing the sounds of your target language, then efficiently has you learn the most frequently used words and push them into your longterm memory, and finally has you naturally build sentences using words you know and practice your speech to fluency. In short, if you're serious about speaking a new language, Fluent Forever will get you there faster.
FLUENT FOREVER'S METHOD
The foundation of our proven method, as detailed in Gabe's bestselling book, is based on the principles of personalized flashcard creation and spaced repetition, extremely powerful learning tools that optimize your brain’s memory abilities. So not only will you learn a language quickly, you’ll never forget it.
1. Train Your Ears With Pronunciation Lessons
You need to learn what a language sounds like before you can learn how to speak it. Our powerful tools like detailed instructional videos, mnemonic imagery and minimal pair tests will train your ears in the sound system of your new language.
2. Learn Vocabulary Through Images Instead of Translations
Within weeks you will understand the sounds of your new language, and you can begin learning words. By creating personalized flashcards using our memorable word association system, you will rapidly learn the most used words in your new language. You will then push these new words into your long term memory by reviewing your flashcards using our automated spaced repetition system.
3. Learn Grammar Naturally Through Stories Relevant To You
Once you learn the most used words in your language you can begin learning sentences. By visualizing how your new words fit into sentences about topics you’re interested in, you will naturally learn grammar through immersive stories, as opposed to boring lessons or complex conjugation tables. You will never be forced to learn words or grammar you don’t need or want to learn.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I love the fluent forever method and this app is extremely user friendly. Unfortunately, because I started with the book and the anki card method, I actually find that the app became a little too watered down during the effort to make it fast and user friendly. The thing I miss from Anki is being able to really customize the cards. To help me remember what words were masculine or feminine, I would write masculine words in blue and feminine in pink. That’s not possible in the app so I’m finding I’m having a lot more trouble with remembering genders of new words.
Also, when making cards on my computer, I could use any photo I wanted. The way they allow you to choose photos on the app is certainly very fast but if I’m not loving the bing options, I wish there was a way to choose a photo from somewhere else like google search or even import a photo from my camera library. Maybe some people aren’t as picky as me with this but when using anki, I enjoyed the process of finding the exact right photo to help me remember even if it took a little longer.
Lastly, I wish there was a way to access all of my flash cards in the app so that I could look up a word or review as many cards as I want per day. In anki I was able to do a custom study session which I can’t do in the FF app.
Like I said, I think FF is amazing and is by far the best language learning method out there, I would just like a little more customization abilities in the app :)

That is great to hear that you are liking our method and also the app a little. :D I am very happy to tell you that all your concerns are features we are, or soon will be, working on. We are currently testing and hopefully adding very soon, the ability to see the genders of the words during card creation, and you should also see them in your review already in this version. Things like notes and mnemonics will also be coming to the app later on. The Bing search we can't do anything about, because of Google's restrictions, but we indeed will be adding the possibility to add images from your camera roll. This will be a great workaround for this issue. There will also be a way to have an overview of all your flashcards with info on them, but this to be totally honest is something that we aren't yet developing because of other more important features, but this is definitely something that is needed in the app and we will work out eventually.
There is a lot more to come, and we truly hope that with everyone's help and feedback we will be able to make this the best language learning app out there.
Need to be able to add own material!
This app is fantastic as a way to easily and efficiently make flash cards and review them. I also enjoy the ability to easily search for photos or add my own from my camera roll. It would be an invaluable tool to my language learning except for a pretty serious drawback for us advanced learners: There is no way to add your own words/sentences as flash cards. The explore tab rarely ever returns a match for any vocabulary I’ve encountered naturally through the media I consume in my target language, and it rarely includes the right conjugations of verbs when I’m trying to learn grammar. I can’t add chunk phrases I’m trying to learn, either. I’m disappointed that fixing this issue hasn’t been made a bigger priority. Users absolutely need to be able to add their own material!! It’s frustrating because otherwise I think the app is a near-perfect tool, but I hate being limited to only the material available through the explore tab. So, great for a beginner to whom all vocabulary is potentially new, but unbelievably frustrating to use as an advanced student. Please, please fix this issue! It has SO much potential aside from this!!

Thanks so much for your review and your rating. The ability to add custom content is on the way very soon. A great deal of work is going into this feature as we're sure you can understand, so it took a bit of time to make sure it was perfect. We hope that we will be able to win more stars once it is available on the app.
The best way to really learn a language
Some background on me. I can speak and read German well, because I’m a scholar of German stuff and have lived there. That’s the only language I’d say I really know decently. However, I passed my French reading exam in grad school easily and can read some French, but I love French and wanted to learn the language to speak and understand. Enter Fluent Forever.
I discover Gabe some years back, but I love the app and let me explain how it’s helping me. I think Gabe has made the most significant discovery in language learning in his focus on pronunciation. I’ve found afet very little work with the Fluent Forever method, I could begin aurally comprehending some of the French tv I watch with subtitles. This blew me away, but I realized it’s because my mind could actually make out the word distinctly. So, what may seem like a pain - all the spelling and pronunciation work - is actually the magic of language, and what eventually makes it become easy-seeming and fun.
When I’m farther through the app’s French course, I’ll see if I can update this review. But, having tried many different methods before Gabe’s, this is unparalleled for series language learners. Thanks to Gabe and your team!

Thank you so much for your review and rating. It is so exciting that you are able to hear and understand the French sounds in the same way a native would. This is definitely the foundation for being able to speak the language and never lose it. We look forward to your continued progress!
