Say hola to Fluencia, the future of language learning

September 18, 2013

Online language learning platform set to revolutionize and democratize quality e-learning

ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Fluencia, a new language-learning platform that launches today, combines advanced technology, game-like activities, and a rich curriculum to make learning Spanish more enjoyable and more effective.

Building on the latest research in second-language acquisition, Fluencia leverages:

    --  Spaced repetition: Improving long-term retention up to 200 percent;
    --  Personalized feedback: Like having a personal tutor every step of the
        way, and;
    --  Interactive exercises: Using native-speaker audio, a sleek design, and
        engaging images.

“Fluencia sets a new standard of excellence for Spanish language education,” said Chris Cummings, Fluencia CEO. “The innovations found throughout Fluencia represent the future of language learning.”

Fluencia has a user-base of more than 10,000 learners from 144 countries and is already seeing dramatic results. One of Fluencia’s earliest beta users, age 11, has been using Fluencia for just four months. With no prior Spanish knowledge, he tested as well as students with nearly six years of Spanish.

Fluencia was created by SpanishDict.com, the world’s most popular Spanish reference website with more than 60 million unique visitors last year. The curriculum was developed with a team of Spanish professors at leading universities and is equivalent to a year’s worth of college Spanish.

“Fluencia incorporates the most important findings in second language acquisition to help people learn and retain Spanish,” said Dr. Cristina Sanz, Language Program Director for Spanish and Co-Director of the Center for the Brain Basis of Cognition at Georgetown University. “Fluencia uses personalized feedback, spaced repetition, and a functional focus, all of which have been shown to help you learn more effectively.”

Fluencia is launching with the full-functionality of its course on phones, tablets, and computers, allowing students of all ages to learn Spanish on any device. Pricing for unlimited access to Fluencia starts at a fraction of the price of online or in-person alternatives.
