"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.
