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.
Fluency in a second language CANNOT be achieved in three months. And it is absurd to make such a contention. You cannot even be exposed to that much language in three months. True fluency takes years, if not decades, in order to speak well!15
Benny continues to amaze me in what he does, and definitely in this book. Benny talks about various methods, directions, paths, and attitude, as well as helpful tips! I think that many would be unwillingly to make the purchase because of the cost, but if you think about it, it costs only about 3-4 cups of coffee. And it can help you reach fluency in a language!55
