Learn the Pronunciation of a Foreign Language in Just 2 Weeks with Fluent Forever

We all know that language learning requires a certain milieu of saturation. It is in such an environment that the pronunciation is picked up like a sponge soaks up water. Yet passive recordings do not work as efficiently as active and interactive teaching guides. 

To make things simpler, a new Fluent Forever app has come out that will pronounce various words of the foreign language at random and then have you guess which one has what meaning. This approach is the natural trial and error method of learning a language and it is virtually foolproof. Besides, any one can quickly pick up the basics of the alien language in a matter of two weeks via this scheme. 

There are 11 languages for which these tools of the trade will be designed. They include: French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Mandarin, Japanese and Korean. The phonetics need to be regulated to form pairs of words that the learner can distinguish by repeated practice. Next up is a video series that will allow you to familiarize yourself with the sounds, pronunciations and general rules of the foreign language you wish to study. It has a $20,000 projected cash limit. 

Finally, the third goal is the most awe-inspiring list of words in the foreign language. This has a budget of $25,000. Kickstarter got a good thing going with this language project and it is off to make ordinary citizens into polyglots. 

Mnemonic devices that aid your retention powers and methods of manipulating your linguistic apparatus will be helpful here. It has reached its crowd-funding goal of $10,000 on Kickstarter in just 2 days. Till now, its Kickstarter funding campaign has raised $15,788. It still has 24 more days to go before the end of funding project on January 2, 2014. 

If you like this app, you can also back this Kickstarter project by pledging minimum $1.
