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.

Thanks as always for being a loyal listener, for sharing the episodes and also a huge thanks to the people who encouraged me by sending emails, asked what was going on and also to those who were brave enough to step up to a stranger in public and tell them they enjoyed their podcast.
