Over the last few years, I've told a lot of people about what an awesome program this is, and that it takes time for Fluenz to develop new programs because of how thorough the lessons are. But it's been a long time since I've seen new languages, is there anything in the works?

This question is unsolved

We are currently working on our new Spanish Immersion program in Mexico City and if it continues to be successful, we'll add new languages to that, however, no new languages planned for the software program at this time.

But Andy, understand this: Fluenz Mandarin 1+2 & 3 is the work of a genius, but it is clearly an unfinished product. Those who have completed the entire thing have been left at the doorstep of Lower Intermediate Level. I have compared almost every Mandarin course out there from some of the biggest companies and none have the level of sophistication that Fluenz Mandarin has. I have even purchased and then thrown into the trash can these other Mandarin courses because they clearly are lacking in every way possible. The ONLY shortcoming with Fluenz Mandarin is the lack of Levels 4 and 5. For a company as huge as Fluenz to have created THE ABSOLUTE BEST Mandarin language course out there and to then stop short of the finish line is similar to producing the greatest bottle of red wine and then after opening the bottle and letting us get a sniff of the wine, not having enough glasses to pour the wine into. It is a tragedy. Surely a company as big as yours can assemble a team and give us levels 4 and 5. We are willing to pay for it.

Does the other projects include a French Immersion class like the one you have in Spanish?

Welcome back! Sorry, not plans for an Android App for Flashcards immediately. It's on our to do list and hopefully we'll get to it someday. We're currently working on other projects

I notice that in the Spanish section, Sonia and Duare are both dressed in the colors of the African Grey parrot - the best speaker in the parrot world. Coincidence?? I love the program, by the way, and the color scheme.

Glad to hear you love the program and the color scheme. We didn't plan it to be that way, so just a fun coincidence. Enjoy the rest of the program!

Just wondering. I had purchased all five levels of German and wanted to buy another program; is there a sale once a year or something? Thanks.

We have a big sale for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and again just before Christmas. From time-to-time we have smaller sales.

I have no idea how to understand the German cases. The way it is explained doesn't make much sense to me. I have taken German in High School and my teacher taught the same way Sonia does and nothing ever clicked. Just when I start understanding why a structure does this and why it is, it is suddenly skewed. My brain almost needs a rule of thumb to follow in order to understand. Does anyone have a way to remember how to tell between the cases that simply made more sense to them?

It would be easier to answer specific questions because it is a rather large topic you touch upon. Most German grammar books have explanations, and you can easily find explanations online as well. Over simplifying, one can say that the subject of a sentence will be nominative case, the direct object accusative case, and the indirect object the dative case. But which case to use after prepositions, for instance, I find easier to learn through repetition. There is no "rule" to apply that is of much help, or else it's more work to learn when to apply rules than to just memorize. Viel Glück

As I (hopefully) understand it: The nominative, or subject, form is the simplest to learn. The accusative and dative get very tricky with the prepositions. But, in at least many cases, the accusative case handles direct objects (and directions), the dative case handles indirect objects (and locations), and the genitive deals with the possessive. So: the bread (the word "the" is nominative) das Brot I eat the bread ("I' is the subject, while the bread is the direct object, so you use the accusative) Ich esse das Brot I give the bread to you ("I" is the subject, "to you" uses the dative because it's an indirect object, and "the bread" once again is the direct object Ich gebe dir das Brot I give you the bread of the bakery ("of the bakery" uses the genitive) Ich gebe dir das Brot der Backerei If this is confusing or incorrect, someone please correct me!

Hi Fluenz! Your software is top-notch amazing. I was wondering which language is going to be next? Are you guys going to be doing more complex languages like Japanese, Korean, Russian, Hindi, Arabic or any other. Thank you so much.

Hello. This thread has been open for 4 years. Any update on what language(s) you're working on for the near future? Thanks.

Hi there, sorry, no plans at this time for any new languages. We're working hard on our new Spanish Immersion program in Mexico, which has been our major focus this last year. You can see more about it at immersion.fluenz.com
