"Never before have I seen a method that syncs up so perfectly with our current scientific understanding of how memory works." - Scientific American Mind
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.

Extra extra! We organized the Base Vocab section into Sets based on illustrations from our Most Awesome Word List so you can learn the most frequently used words in the most efficient way possible.
We also hired more devs (!) so expect the app to feel a bit “fancier” from now on, starting with new onboarding animations in this release.
As for language updates, we finalized Russian and expanded Portuguese (Brazilian) and Korean.
Lastly, you’ll notice wider word boxes and an improvement to the “Skip It / Know It” functionality.
Ratings and Reviews
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.
An app that really works!
As someone who is interested in learning other languages for business purposes and pleasure, I have tried several applications. Most of them fell short of my expectations. They work at the very beginning until you reach a plateau. You build a limited vocabulary, but in the end, you can’t speak fluently.
Fluent Forever is different because it has been developed based on the science that explains how we learn a language. It lets you make continuous progress in a way that is both rewarding and pushes you forward. The application allows you to use your acquired vocabulary in conversation in a natural way.
It consists of a solid method to overcome the difficulties and frustrations of learning a new language. Nothing beats the pleasure of expressing yourself in a new language and being understood, traveling to foreign countries and feeling at home, and making new friends by breaking through language barriers! This app is what I was looking for...

Thank you so much for such a glowing piece of feedback. It really means a lot to us to know that the app is helping language learners like you achieve their goals of fluency! That's been our goal all along, and we're going to do our best to maintain both the challenge and reward to make sure we're providing the best possible experience on your road to language mastery.
On the right path!
This app is really great for training your brain to think and listen in your target language. And that’s something I definitely think is lacking in other apps like Duolingo. However, the interface is a bit messy, in my opinion. It’s not as clear cut as I think it could be. As well there’s only 6/7 languages available to learn. Duolingo has lots of different languages to learn. The reason this is bothersome for me personally is that none of my target languages are available on this app. I’m currently studying Gaeilge at my university and Dutch in my spare time. Neither are available so I looked at the German course which is the closest to Dutch. It’s well constructed however, there’s an assumption that everyone know IPA which I don’t think is correct. I’ve never used it and none of my professors use it in their teaching style either. I get that it’s supposed to make it easier but it’s basically learning an international alphabet to learn the target language alphabet. It’s a bit disorienting to say the least. Overall this app has outstanding potential and I hope they get some more languages added soon!
Developer Response ,
We really appreciate the review and thorough feedback. Rest assured we are working hard to bring continuous improvement to the app in every possible way through interface updates, bug fixes, and brand new languages. Dutch will be added soon as one of our officially supported languages, and Gaeilge will be available through our 'learn any language' feature, so that's something to look forward to. =) Thanks for giving us a shot, and we hope to be an awesome part of your journey to fluency when your target languages are available!
