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 40 – 10 Language learning lessons learned so far

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2020)

In today's episode I'm back doing another solo episode, and this time I'm talking about 10 lessons I've learnt about language learning by interviewing over 30 language learners.

Flying solo

Welcome to Episode 40 of the Actual Fluency Podcast. I'm very excited to be presenting a solo-episode this week, where I dive into 10 things I've learned by interviewing over 30 amazing language learners throughout the year.

This episode is a little different from the usual guest-interview format, and so I'm very happy to hear your feedback on it. Is it interesting? Boring? Too short? Too long? Any feedback is welcomed in the comments box below.

I'm really heappy that you are listening to my podcast and together we will learn many languages. I'm sure of it.
