Our priority is the learner. Always.

Our mission is to provide comparisons and recommendations for foreign language learners, so they do not waste any unncessary time on poor learning products and overpriced solutions.

So, how do we make money? Our partners compensate us, at no additional cost to the learner. This can influence the positioning of certain elements on Actual Fluency, but it never influences our recommendations, and reviews which are based on years of experience in the field. We do not accept payment in exchange for favourable reviews, or paid link placements. Here is a list of our partners.

In this week's special episode Kris shares some of his own mental health battles, and the importance of reaching out and seeking help when you need it.

Show Notes and Resources

Note: This is a rebroadcast from my other podcast: Language Learner Weekly. After falling ill with the flu I was unable to record this week's new episode for the podcast. Being Mental Health Week I felt the message was important enough to reupload here. Apologies if you've heard it on the other show already.

Warning: None of the information and advice given in this episode can be construed as medical. If you're dealing with mental health issues PLEASE consult with your doctor first.

If you're feeling suicidal PLEASE get help by using one of the free helplines where trained staff will listen:

In the episode:

  • What catastrophic life events caused my own depressive state
  • How I eventually started to improve
