Fluent Forever is a mobile app for learning new languages.

Based on the best-selling book, “Fluent Forever: How to Learn Any Language Fast and Never Forget It,” the company’s platform helps users become fluent in a foreign language in as little as six months.

According to Global Industry Analysts, a market research firm, e-learning is projected to be a $325 billion market by 2025. The online language learning sector, specifically, is projected to experience double-digit growth over the next five years.

Fluent Forever is targeting this opportunity by enabling users to learn Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Portuguese.

To separate itself from other language-focused mobile apps, Fluent Forever features personalized digital flashcards and pronunciation lessons.

Using techniques like word association and repetition, users learn vocabulary through images instead of translations, and learn grammar through relatable stories.

Fluent Forever charges access to its lessons through monthly subscriptions.

Since 2017, Fluent Forever has generated nearly $3 million in revenue through book sales. In addition, the company has raised more than $1.5 million from investors through a campaign on Indiegogo, a crowdfunding platform.

As for its mobile app, the company released a beta version in November 2018, and plans to release the full version early this year.
