With a twist on the conventional liberal arts education, this startup school intends on facilitating multi-dimensional learning

Whether you’re a globetrotter in search of more jargon to arm your linguistic arsenal, or a romantic hoping to woo your exotic partner, the need to learn new languages will never die out. But absorbing other dialects is a daunting undertaking that’s easier said than done, and most classes significantly drain your pockets before you begin to see any return on investment. For that reason, educational startup Fluent City has just secured a $2.5m USD round to help breed more polyglots through its unconventional teaching practices and experiential philosophy. The backing will also help the culture school expand its course offerings as it delves into frontiers outside of languages and into the similarly culturally oriented themes of art and design, food and drink, and culture and travel.
