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 21 – Richard Simcott: 20th Episode Special!

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2020)

Today is a special celebratory milestone! It marks the 20th unique episode of the Actual Fluency Podcast. When I first started the podcast 20 episodes ago, it was my dream to create a podcast that could inspire people, and myself to work harder, discover new methods and just try and connect the community through the podcasting medium – which at the time I started only had one other general language learning podcast.

richardsimcottTo help me celebrate the great news I've brought on Richard Simcott, who was one of the very first polyglots I encountered on YouTube. Way before I even considered learning a language, let alone starting a blog.
So now it has come full circle. Through joining the polyglot community, starting a blog and devising a future I'm moving on with my life, instead of staying in the hole of depression, wandering around aimlessly and without any hope of a better life.

Thank you

This show would not have been possible without you, so I just wanted to take a second to thank you so much for being a listener. It literally makes my day when I get emails, messages or tweets where people tell me they listened to something I had done and it had a positive effect on their life.

To me there is no greater pleasure.

Here's to the next 20!
