Pietie Beyers gesels oor ons en sy isiZulu lesse op KykNet!

“Fluentella serves as manna from the heavens in a globally challenging time. Learning a new skill online feels empowering while we see uncertainty all around. Focus on what you CAN control. Improving yourself by learning a new language is certainly one of them. And doing it with the incredible Fluentella makes it an absolute joy 💪🚀 Hope to speak to you (in Zulu!) once the lockdown has been lifted. Health & Happiness. Love & Magic.”  Pietie Beyers

How does it work?

Why choose Fluentella as your next language partner?


You have a busy life. Schedule your lessons at a time that suits you. In a different timezone? No problem! All you need is a laptop or device with an internet connection, a webcam and speakers. We teach students of any level from the age of 5. Everyone is welcome at Fluentella!


It is impossible to grasp a language after one lesson. You can benefit by purchasing a language package (consisting of 12 lessons) and save up to $50 per package! Of course, if you are only looking for a few lessons, you are more than welcome to purchase them at the regular price. 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!

English Teacher

Hello! My name is Kelsey. I am originally from the United States but now live in India. In 2014 I graduated with a Bachelors in Arts. The following year I spent teaching English as a second language to both first and second school students. Most recently these past two years I have tutored ESL students individually as opposed to the large classroom I encountered my first-year teaching. Watching students improve their skills and learn to grow makes teaching the most rewarding job. It is a joy to see my students make progress and come to class with the enthusiasm to learn.

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.
