About Actual Fluency

Actual Fluency's mission is to help recommend the best language learning resources, the world has to offer. We believe a more multilingual world helps to connect people across borders and cultural barriers, and increases cooperation, unity, and ultimately, quality of life.

Through our standardised and rigorous testing environment, we help eliminate the paradox of choice, and the overwhelm related to trying to find the best tools to learn foreign languages with.

The end goal is a lot of time and frustration saved, which can then be put into actually learning the language.

Our Story

Actual Fluency was originally founded in 2014 as a personal blog and podcast for our founder, Kris Broholm, Actual Fluency quickly moved in the direction of product reviews, specialising in language learning products, courses, and services. Frustrated with the massive amounts of subpar, overly expensive, or straight-up scam products in the language learning industry, Actual Fluency changed focus and is now a reliable resource with an easy-to-find overview of which products and services help people learn languages the best.

Email Club

On top of our reviews and guides for language learning resources, we also provide a regular newsletter with tips, tricks, and resources to help you stay motivated in your language learning journey, and pick up a few tips along the way.

This email club is completely free. All you have to do is sign up.
