Fluenz is one of the newer courses on the market. I must admit, when I read about them I was sceptial. But I was wrong to be so, Fluenz is THE ONLY course I've come accross that utilizes all various methods of learning in one professionally produced package... watching, listening and writing. It's like being in front of a private tutor. And the tutor is a native speaker of the language you're looking to learn which is a bonus. The courses are in five levels, and each level is made up of 29 lessons. Each lesson takes you about 30 mins to complete. Each level costs around £180 BUT... like i said it's like having a personal tutor in front of you all the way and it is actually interesting a fun. A one-on-one session with a tutor in your home or a class would cost you a lot more than that for 29 lessons. I feel it's like someones taken Rosetta Stone, noticed what wasn't working and made it better.
