Nailing grammar is essential when learning a language – but for most learners, rules are easily forgotten and hard to put into practice. In a world-first for language learning apps, Busuu, the world’s largest language learning community, has added a new AI-powered feature to its English, German and Spanish courses for iOS users. With Busuu’s new Grammar Review feature, language learners can now benefit from a grammar training experience that’s so personalised, it’s like having a private tutor. 

From differing genders to agreements and formalities, grammar is often considered the toughest part of learning a language. Busuu’s Grammar Review makes it easier to remember tricky grammar rules through an interactive and personalised learning experience. Using a machine-learning algorithm, created by Busuu’s Data Science team, the chances of forgetting pre-learned content are lowered as learners are actively reminded of topics they would usually forget before the chance arises. The more a learner uses Grammar Review, the more the algorithm is trained to learn about individual pain points, and the more effective it becomes.

With an array of language learning apps available on the market, Busuu is the first and only app that teaches grammar with AI, turning previously dull and tiresome experiences with old school grammar books into something fun and engaging. This development of the Grammar Review app not only helps to reinforce grammar into a learner's long-term memory, but underpins Busuu’s aim to create a highly-personalised and effective approach to language learning for each individual learner.

Kirsten Campbell-Howes, Head of Education at Busuu, comments:

“One of the biggest barriers faced by learners when it comes to mastering a language is grammar. Particularly for native English speakers, genders, forms, cases and moods within European languages can often seem like alien concepts. But with the right approach, learners can understand and remember them.”

“Grammar Review is a fantastic tool to help learners overcome these challenges, by personalising grammar tuition to each individual learner. Every learner is unique and with machine learning, we’re getting rid of the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach that most language courses offer. We’re incredibly excited to see how learners progress through our courses with the help of this feature.”

Bernhard Niesner, Co-Founder and CEO of Busuu, comments:

"Every minute, our machine learning algorithms are demystifying the needs of millions of language learners across the globe, helping make Busuu one of the most effective tools in language learning. We’re committed to building a language learning app so effective that it rivals immersion in another country, and AI will continue to play an important role in our approach. When it comes to grammar, we’re proud to offer the world’s first AI-powered grammar training tool within a language app. Without grammar, a language app cannot make promises of fluency, let alone learning to function in another language with confidence."

Grammar Review is currently available on Busuu’s iOS app, within its English, German and Spanish courses. The feature will be expanded to Busuu’s other language courses and its Android app in the coming months.

Further Education News

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

FE News publish exclusive peer to peer thought leadership articles from our feature writers, as well as user generated content across our network of over 3000 Newsrooms, offering multiple sources of the latest education news across the Education and Employability sectors.

FE News also broadcast live events, podcasts with leading experts and thought leaders, webinars, video interviews and Further Education news bulletins so you receive the latest developments in Skills News and across the Apprenticeship, Further Education and Employability sectors.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
