English isn’t a native language, but it’s an integral part of many people’s everyday lives.
A recent study found that, while roughly 90% of the world’s population speak English as a second language, less than half speak the language in formal contexts, such as at a job interview.
The study’s authors suggest that in the U.S., the language barrier is so wide that people struggle to even learn French.
In the U, as many as one-third of American adults do not speak French.
And that number is growing rapidly.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine have launched an online dictionary, which it hopes will make learning French easier.
But there’s a catch: You don’t have to use the dictionary, but instead just use an app called FluentU, which aims to help you learn the language.
“You don’t need a dictionary.
FluentuU is a tool that will automatically learn French for you,” says Paul Niedermayer, the dictionary’s creator.
Niedemann has developed a program that helps you use the app on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows and Android phones, and then teaches you French through videos.
You can even use the Fluent U app to learn a language you already know by using your phone’s microphone and the app’s dictation feature.
“You can say the words in the app and then have the dictionary help you remember them,” Niederman says.
He hopes the app will become a tool people use to improve their language skills.
But it’s not the only tool out there.
FluenuU’s developer says he is also working on a French dictionary app called Linguistice, but he isn’t ready to announce a date just yet.
