What is Fluent Forever?
A language-learning company developed by Gabriel Wyner, an opera singer who needed to learn multiple languages quickly and retain them forever. Fluent Forever's products have evolved from pronunciation trainers into a bestselling book and now into the most crowdfunded smartphone app in history.
How does Fluent Forever work?
Fluent Forever's method is based on the principles of personalized flashcard creation and spaced repetition, extremely powerful learning tools that optimize your brain’s memory abilities. For more, check out our Method page.
What is the Four Step Method?
