The Fluencia review was originally published in Dulaboo.com. I used to write for the said website before my contract expired. Republishing here for archiving purposes. Edited to suit Yoast’s requirements.
Exploring the world of free online language resources is such an adventure especially when some free foreign language tutorials include technological adaptability into the lessons. Let me introduce to you Fluencia, the Spanish tutorial service free of charge.
The previous websites that I have shown you offer lessons with apps downloadable into their iPhones and iPads. The same technological adaptability is also seen here at Fluencia. Its advantage lay in the fact that you can also learn Spanish on cloud-based technology.
What is cloud in techie terms? According to Wikipedia, it is “a colloquial expression used to describe a variety of different types of computing concepts that involve a large number of computers connected through a real-time communication network such as the Internet”.
Think of the cloud as the internet with better connectivity.
This is why gadget enthusiasts have started including cloud as one of their barometers for using a software essential to their daily needs. Learning Spanish could easily be included in those essentials upon enrollment here at Fluencia.
An individual feedback system is in place. This system informs you about your progress in Spanish proficiency. It just depends on the current level that you trying to complete.
This helps in assessing yourself in terms of Spanish language grammar, comprehension and sentence construction. They used a visual approach instead of text-based approach in teaching Spanish.
Fluencia is one of those free Spanish language tutorial services that dared compare itself to Rosetta Stone. And it focused on what it can offer. For everything that Rosetta Stone can’t provide, Fluencia delivered.
Apart from the core technology, an interesting aspect they are very proud of is the “Intelligent Feedback” stating “Review only what you’re struggling with”.
Fluencia uses a grading system that identifies the waterloos in a student’s Spanish language lessons.
It will not hesitate giving credit where credit is due but at the same time, it will not overlook the weak points that you need to improve on in terms of Spanish language proficiency.
Fluencia immediately assumes that I am viewing the site through a tablet based on the layout. The images cover the entire screen. They laid out the images to cover the screen most of the time. It’s a few steps short of grabbing your attention. The website reverberates from monitor if viewed from a desktop computer or a laptop. Not that I’m complaining.
Any service-based website that doesn’t hesitate to insert a little chat box for any concerns that may possibly arise is a good site to rely on. The site itself may be highly dependent on technology to deliver the best expected results.
But Fluencia did not forget that humans used the site. Besides, the purpose behind free Spanish language lesson online is to improve communications. So they only walk the talk this way.
The Fluencia website is still up along with its Facebook and Twitter accounts. They described their curriculum as consisting of “hand-crafted lessons, designed just for you”. You will appreciate the neat layout and easy to access lessons. I still recommend it for tablet users today.
