You Will Not Believe What This NYC Startup is Doing To Redefine Language Learning
FluentU is a new way to learn a language, using real-world videos, like music videos, movie trailers, news, and inspiring talks. You know — those things that native speakers see and hear, but on your level, to help you learn, advance — and speak more like a native, by picking up the subtleties and the more colloquial terms.
Makes perfect sense and in fact, it’s even being used in schools, where exposing student to authentic content is becoming a priority — and a game changer. It’s also a lot more engaging and a lot less boring than sitting there with a textbook, which is so last century.
And it’s available both on the web and as an iPhone app.
Founder and CEO Alan Park tells us more about it, in plain English.
