On this week’s show, we spoke with Ara Ghougassian, Co-Founder @ Fluent. His website is beautiful and the product itself is even better. Every language platform on the planet focuses on teaching you a new language by using the same, worn-out methods. With Fluent, you're constantly learning words that you actually care about and want to use for your daily life. They are currently available in French as a Chrome Extension and plan on expanding to other languages in the near future. Ara did an incredible job of seeing a problem and then solving it. 

Fluent is a chrome extension that helps you practice new languages while you browse the web. We translate select English words on the websites you're already reading to a new language of your choice. 

 

On the show, we spoke about: 

  • His entrepreneurial journey to co-founding Fluent 
  • The concept of immersive learning 
  • Why being privacy first matters 
  • Competition in their space 
  • Building an operating system for language learning

 

Ara has  infectious enthusiasm and energy. Even though they are just getting started, I wouldn’t bet against them. I hope that you enjoy the conversation!
