Benny Lewis, who speaks over ten languages--all self-taught--runs the largest language-learning blog in the world, Fluent In 3 Months. Lewis is a full-time "language hacker," someone who devotes all of his time to finding better, faster, and more efficient ways to learn languages. Fluent in 3 Months: How Anyone at Any Age Can Learn to Speak Any Language from Anywhere in the World is a new blueprint for fast language learning. Lewis argues that you don't need a great memory or "the language gene" to learn a language quickly, and debunks a number of long-held beliefs, such as adults not being as good of language learners as children.

What amounts to an excellent pep talk about foreign language acquisition, with some clever, unconventional suggestions on how to avoid the tedium & fatigue built into the more traditional cirricula & learning methods. Cinco estrellas! Muy recomendable...! CR

I didn't find the book useful. I think the author is way too optimistic about a person attaining fluency in the time frame he writes about, no matter how motivated that person might be. Most people have other commitments besides learning a language and don't have the time to use the techniques and methods the author discusses in his book.

I learned about this book from the TED talk about said author. As a person struggling to learn a second language, I felt rather disappointed in my progress and wasn't sure how to progress. After reading this, I felt my motivation for language learning increased and I began to enjoy what I was learning much more. Nevertheless, it's extremely important to note that all these techniques in this book require one thing: "hardwork" and it is stated in there many times.

I like this book, it helped a lot with resources and different techniques on how to remember words and so much more! If you are interested in learning a language you should check this out.

A really useful book. I am bilingual and yet still found this book had new ideas that inspired me to brush up on my third language and learn a fourth!

Definitely worth reading!
