"Brings language learning to life with real world videos!" Better than YouTube
FluentU is a smart product that continues to become smarter. Language students can always benefit from captions and much learning comes from REAL sources. Also, there are QUIZZES! I haven't used this feature, but being able to have students assess their knowledge after viewing is a great option. FluentU's intent to provide carefully curated, captioned, authentic sources is noteworthy. The company seems to be always trying to improve, which is good, but I did get a bit frustrated when I wasn't able to find certain topics or content. I believe that was just a sign of the newness of this tool. Ideally, I would love to see this site continue to grow to the point where I wouldn't have to spend time on YouTube at all. One final catch-- if you want to be a user with full access, you may have to pay a subscription fee at some point. There is a free preview, though. Check it out! If you see that the content is worth it, a few bucks to subscribe would definitely be worth the investment!
