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.

AFP 153 – Tamara Marie: Teaching Spanish through Music

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2020)

Tamara from Spanish Con Salsa comes on the show to talk about the benefits of using music in teaching and learning languages.

Tamara is an amazing Spanish teacher, who works with her passion of music to help students improve their skills.

What really impressed me about Tamara's method is just how well thought out it is. You'd think that it boils down to just listen to a bunch of music, and you'll get fluent in no time – right?

Well, no. As Tamara explains there are a few more steps that you should do to get the most out of every song and earwurm out there 🙂
