We understand that life is unpredictable, meaning you can reschedule your lessons up to 24 hours in advance, no questions asked.


Not ready to make a commitment? We understand! Here at Fluentella you can meet your teacher and have one free language lesson before you purchase any other lessons. We are sure you will be blown away by our amazing teachers.


If you are looking for a native teacher with experience and knowledge regarding second or third language challenges, look no further. All our teachers have university degrees and are in love with the language they teach! Soon you will be, too!


  • positive review  Only 2 sessions in and I'm already learning a TON! Monica has been helping me learn Spanish and is so easy to work with. Her ability to communicate the lessons effectively makes learning another language fun. I live in Los Angeles and becoming fluent (en espaniol) will certainly open up a world of opportunities for my business. Thank you!

    positive review  Ek is mal oor my Spaanse lesse!! Monica, die spaanse juffrou is baie oulik, baie snaaks en sy maak die lesse baie persoonlik wat baie lekker is. Mens leer dinge wat jy gewoonlik sou wou sê in jou huistaal eerste wat dit baie maklik maar om ook gedurende die dag dit weer te oefen! Sy daag my elke week uit met nuwe leer materiaal en die manier wat sy klas gee laat mens veilig voel om te oefen en foute te maak en daaruit te leer!

    positive review  Me estoy divirtiendo mucho! We are onto sentences people and I am loving it! I’ve been working with Monica from Fluentella for the last two weeks and it has been my saving grace. Not only is learning Spanish keeping my brain active and helping to improve my diction and listening skills, but it’s been so lovely interacting and learning through conversation. It’s so exciting to think in the future I’ll be able to not only travel and speak the native language, but also have a fluent conversation with the Barbershop boys downstairs. Even if I do get my vosotros and vosotras confused🤪 Luckily, Monica is extremely patient and makes lessons fun and relevant!

    positive review  I completed my second Mandarin lesson this morning and I’m really enjoying them. Learning to speak a new language can be intimidating however thanks to Sophie, I feel like I’m getting somewhere and I’m keen to learn more. She keeps it simple and fun while using examples of conversations that people would encounter daily or need to use while visiting Mandarin speaking areas like a simple greeting, hailing a taxi or asking for directions. I didn’t know what expect before starting with Fluentella, however with their approach to teaching I’m definitely feeling more confident with each lesson. Joel Fredette

    positive review  My daughter Emma had her first online Korean lesson with Taeyoung last week. Emma had fun while learning a few Korean phrases with her new teacher. Taeyoung was patient and added some elements to her lesson that suprised and interested Emma, like Peppa Pig and other props. I also liked the report that was sent after the lesson.

  • positive review  Thanks for the great Portugese language lesson! Online, organised, very professional! I was a bit nervous to attempt a language I have no experience with, but Daniel, the instructor, personalised the learning experience, and made me feel at ease and ready to learn immediately. I was very impressed by his knowledge about the history and economy of Brazil - (I had a lot of questions!). If you're looking for an immersive, tailor-made language learning experience, you cannot go wrong with these guys. Thanks again!

    positive review  Marie真的是很好的老師,讓人不自覺喜歡英文,推薦一定要找她上課! Marie is the best teacher I have even seen. She is not only my teacher, but also is my friend. When I had my first online English class with her, I felt so comfortable the whole time. I couldn’t believe I could speak English like that before meeting her. She has a special magic that helps people communicate in English naturally. She always encouraged me to believe I can do it, and helped me to improve my English level. Even better, when I was upset, she always listened to my problems and gave me advice. Because of the above reasons, if my friends want to study English I’ll recommend Marie first. I am so lucky to have met her.

    positive review  Goeie dag liewe review-leser! 😉 Hoop dit gaan goed 😄😀😀 'n Nuwe taal is soos 'n bonus-wêreld wat oopmaak - 'n uitnodiging om interaksies in konneksies te omskep. Nana, van Fluentella, leer my om Zulu te praat en afgesien van haar uitstekende lesse is ons gesprekke vir my 'n weeklikse highlight. No jokes. Fluentella, dankie vir die voorstel aan 'n awesome nuwe vriend! 🌠 Nana is 'n super positiewe gees met 'n great sin vir humor en 'n oop hart. Helfte van die tyd lag ons, dan besef ek daarna wat ek als geleer het ⚡🚀 As dit by tegnologie kom, beskou ek nie myself as besonders begaafd nie, maar hierdie online Skype-tipe-jol werk actually super maklik. Kies die taal van jou keuse en voed jou lewe met groter konneksie - ek kan amper sweer dit dra by tot 'n beter wêreld 🙌🙌🏿🙌🏼🙌🏾🙌🏽 In 'n tyd van Corona-isolasie, upskill jouself tuis 💪 Volgende keer groet ons mekaar in Zulu 😉 Sala Kahle! 💚

  • positive review  Fluentella is a fantastic medium for people to further their education. My husband and I have decided to learn Mandarin. Fluentella has made learning quite convenient as we take the classes from the comfort of our home. Our teacher Sophie, has been very nice and patient with her two new middle aged students.

    positive review  Today’s lesson was fantastic, Marie made it very simple and easy to follow. She was very patient and steered me in the right direction. I learned in the Afrikaans language that the word that follows a pronoun stays the same weather its plural or singular i.e. ek is, jy is, ons is. I was taught the vowel sounds and learned my likes and dislikes and the basic pronunciation of Afrikaans. I feel like there is a benefit being Scottish while learning Afrikaans, because I already pronounce certain words like “loch” and “och” it makes it easier to pronounce that throaty G sound, it is also an advantage being able to roll your r's. I never knew I could do that. I’ve been wanting to learn Afrikaans for years so I can talk to my partners friends and family, but I’ve always worried about sounding silly or it being too difficult to grasp. Marie at Fluentella has really made it simple and has given me confidence to go on and use what I have learned. Ek hou van Fluentella.

    positive review  I've completely fallen in love with the French language! Julie is an incredible teacher, I really look forward to our online classes and I'm seriously surprised at home much I've learnt in such a short time! After only 5 classes, I'm (almost) able to count to 20 (there are a few sneaky little challenging numbers in-between), I can sing the French alphabet 🙂 I know months of the year, how to introduce myself, my age and profession and so much more... I would Absolutely recommend Fluentella!

Your questions answered

What age can my child start at Fluentella?

We cater to kids aged 5-17, no matter their level. If your child is older than 5, but you feel he/she is too young, please try our first free lesson to see how it goes before you commit. No problem!

Should I sit with my child?

Online learning might seem daunting, but there’s nothing to it! For your child’s first lesson, we recommend that you stay close to him / her to assist if any technical or connection issues arise. After the initial lesson, it would benefit the child to study or talk to the teacher in the absence of parents or other family members, as this develops language acquisition immensely.

Can I contact Fluentella?

Please send us an email to hello@fluentella.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Are there books, tests or homework involved?

A weekly report will be sent to you after each lesson, no matter if the student is a child or an adult. Along with this weekly report, we will send you the links to the games, quizzes and activities we did during the lesson, so you or your child can practice in your free time to maximize the language exposure. Fluentella does not use books during the lessons, everything is digital and shared from the teacher’s computer to yours.

How can I schedule lessons?

Fluentella uses PayPal to receive payments. Please click here to make a reservation.

Fluentella will send you a reminder email an hour before your lesson is scheduled to start. In this email you will find the link to your teacher’s online classroom. Click on the link at the time your lesson starts to see your teacher and start studying!

It is extremely important to ensure that you have a stable internet connection  (with an upload and download speed of at least 1.5 Mbps) and any device like a laptop, desktop, tablet or smartphone with a webcam and speakers or headphones.
