Let me preface this all by saying my goal for learning a language is to attain mastery such that I can communicate in all aspects of reading, writing, speaking, listening to a level that is comparable of a native speaker (with reasonable exceptions of course). Previously I had attended several in person learning institutions like a community college, a university, and private in-person tutoring to help me get to an intermediate level. So, in researching other alternatives I was hesitant to pursue telecommuted lessons as I was worried there would be aspects that are not adequately or as easily achieved via in-person teaching. Fluency Corp is a fantastic organization that has ameliorated all of these concerns and done so in an exceptional fashion! The teacher I was paired with is incredibly intelligent, very facilitating, and creates graded work that is at my specific learning level. Additionally any issues we encounter in learning is emphasized in future lessons so that I can hammer out the issues I was experiencing. I purchased 100 hours of education and have been thoroughly please with the experience. So much so that I'm actively looking to see if I can help my spouse participate in this process. I would absolutely recommend it to a friend or family member, and even strangers. The only negative concern I have is that "Fluency Corp" sounds like an evil corporation from a movie. It absolutely is not evil, and is a fantastic organization, however the name just has that kind of feeling to me :)Jun 1, 2017VerifiedFluency Corp's reply
We are so happy that you are satisfied. It is true - lessons on Skype are the same as in person. The effectiveness is in the method, not from being in the same room. Our method is focused on speaking and using the language for real life, and we are so very glad that you agree with us that we are getting you more fluent. We started Spanish lessons with your wife last week, and you are becoming fluent in Japanese for professional reasons... what an international couple! : )

Micah has been amazing in working with our company to get training onsite and in the time that we need.Oct 3, 2017
Fluency Corp has the best instructors due to their overall methodology and strict selection criteria of who they employ. In six months I am able to understand conversations without aid and speak more confidently. I leave for 3 weeks and will only be speaking in the language I have come to love with a passion. Thank you Fluency Corp!!!Oct 1, 2017VerifiedFluency Corp's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our pricing is as follows: $68 for on-site corporate clients or individuals. $58 for Skype live instruction. Same great quality, but more convenient and time is flexible.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First we like to consult with the client to understand the specific needs. We go through a series of questions to understand why they want to improve and what specifically they want to improve. Also important is what they're using the language for. Then, we do a formal assessment with the instructor and decide on what materials best suit the learner. Everyone is different, so we pride ourselves on selecting material specific to each client.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Our CEO and Founder, Micah Bellieu, has created a unique method for achieving fluency. She's spent thousands of hours as a language student and researched thousands more hours with clients seeing what methods gave the best results. She speaks Spanish, French, Japanese and her native language, English. All instructors are trained in this method, and that is why Fluency Corp has been so successful. We hire instructors that truly understand how to get people fluent.
