Some ideas for those who want more
Hi Fluenz team,
First a huge thank you for making this programme. I've always struggled to learn foreign languages and I'm so very happy I have found Fluenz. I have lived in Germany for two years and haven't been able to pick up the language very well. Now, after a couple of months with Fluenz, all my German friends are very impressed with my progress. So, thank you!
I would like to ask today if you have any plans to expand the programme to include pronunciation recognition? I have used a different language learning programme before and while the immersion method (I call it the submersion method because you get drowned in the new language) is anything but effective, this programme does test your pronunciation. I recently repurchased this programme just to test my pronunciation and I hated it because the pedagogy and style is so inferior. I would, however, love it if Fluenz had an expansion pack that included pronunciation recognition. Even as someone who lives in Germany, I am always terrified to speak as so often I am misheard or I mispronounce things and would love to be able to build the confidence at home before I am in a busy supermarket and need to think on my feet.
Also, I find the final section of the programme (the green screens) to have some really great sentences in them and I, for one, would really like to be able to test out my dictation for random sentences instead of always building on a single idea.
These are just some food for thought from someone who has spent a lot of time trying and trying with unconventional methods. I am very happy with Fluenz and I think these things would really be the cherry on top :)
