“I’m struggling with German and you have given me some very good tips to try. I’m using Fluenz and Duolingo and really like both but have yet to speak a word to another human being. Retention is difficult if one is not using the language in real-life situations.”

“Easy to follow and lot’s of great advice!”

“I’m a native Spanish speaker and this help me a lot to discover new apps and improve my fluency. Now, I feel more motivated to keep learning English and French.”
