I JUST FINISHED LESSON 30 OF LEVEL 5 SPANISH ... This has been a long hard (but fun) road. As I have mentioned before I do each lesson twice. So I have actually completed the full program TWICE. It took me well over two years to do it. Each lesson takes about 3 or 4 hours so that means I spent over 1,000 hours. There were times when I almost gave up and did not think I would be able to make it. But I just kept plugging along. Thanks Sonia for the lessons. I am going to miss seeing you on a regular basis. I plan on revisiting a few lessons here and there when I find I have a problem. Now on to improving my knowledge, and getting more comfortable with engaging in conversations. This will be much easier now that I have the Fluenz grammer and vocabulary base to work off of. I wonder how many people who start, actually finish?

JonG - Yes, I did the entire lesson twice. I would basically do a leapfrog. For example: Monday Lesson 1, Tuesday Lesson 2, Wednesday Lesson 3, Thursday Repeat Lesson 1, Friday Lesson 4, Saturday Repeat Lesson 2, Monday Lesson 5, Tuesday Repeat Lesson 3 ... etc. What would happen is that during my repeat of lesson 1 after having done lesson 2 and 3 (which contained some lesson 1 reinforcement) a bell would go off in my head and I'd say "Oh that's why".

Can someone explain when you utilize the words "para preguntar" as opposed to "para pedir"...? I'm on level 5, lesson 2. In the Flash Cards there is a sentence that says, ""Los pasajeros fueron al mostrador de la aerolinea para pedir informacion" (The pasengers went to the airline counter to ask for information)", and another similar sentence that says, ""El pasajero fue al mostrador de la aerolinea para preguntar la hora de embarque" (The pasenger went to the airline counter to ask the boarding time)". Why, in one sentence, "para pedir" is used, and in the other, "para preguntar"...?

Je viens de finir tous les cinq niveaux de Fluenz French. J'ai commence le programme quelques fois mais je ne l'ai jamais fait a la fin avant. My keyboard doesn't allow for accent marks, so I'm switching to English so you won't think I don't know how to spell properly. :-) I've had the program for years and have tried to get through it all a few times, but I never made it past half-way through Level 3. This time I started over with Level 1 in January and committed to doing one level per month. Today, June 12, I finished Level 5! I'm so happy, and I truly appreciate Fluenz - and especially Caroline, who did a wonderful job in the tutorials. I wish you could see the stack of flash cards I made while watching her tutorials. It's 8 inches high! I'll use them over and over to reinforce my learning. Now I know I must do as she says and find other ways to keep advancing my knowledge of French. Movies, a language buddy, Internet news, trips to France and/or Canada? All of the above? Thank you, Fluenz! Thank you, Caroline!!!

Take a few days off from new lessons and try reviewing other lessons via the flashcards at flashcards.fluenz.com for a bit before moving on. When you start again, be sure to take written notes during the tutorial videos so you can have those to look back on. Handwritten tend to be best. Hope this helps!

I have tried to download the updates (my version is 2.10 of Italian 3) It seems that there is an update available but the screen just goes blank after I answer all of the questions. Please advise, Thank you.

I am confused that an apostrophe isn't needed in the following sentence: "OK, qual `e la Sua camera?" I would have thought the correct form would be "OK, qual' `e la Sua camera?" Can someone please explain this for me? Thanks!l

I finished studied Fluenz Italian 1-2-3 last month and just had a day layover in Rome after a long trip in Africa. Well again thanks a lot Fluenz for teaching me enough so that I could buy metro train and tickets, order meals, ask for directions and much more! I made a few mistakes, mostly because I was mixing Spanish and Italian, with small words like molto/mucho, and numbers (quatorce/quatordici) but overall I felt pretty confident and my knowledge of French and Spanish definitely made comprehension very easy. I can't wait to start Fluenz Italian 4!

We recently attended a week of Mercedes Benz events in Stuttgart. My attempt to speak German at the hotel and hotel restaurant were met with quizzical looks and then I would transition to English. At this point I felt depressed that years of study had been a failure. I understood them but they didn't understand me. At dinner one evening I was seated next to a MB employee. His proximity and knowing he would bail me out if needed, I successfully ordered in German and was emboldened to make conversation in German with him. I told him I was amazed at my success with German after miserably failing at the hotel and a couple of restaurants. He replied that the reason was simple. People working in the hospitality industry in Germany are frequently immigrants from Turkey and Greece who have good English language skills but poor German language skills. Suddenly my confidence was restored. I would speak German every chance I got, knowing that if I was not understood, it was not because of my inept German skills, but perhaps theirs. My motivation to continue learning German was restored.

Would you consider adding a feature where you could actually print out flashcards of words and phrases?
