DESCRIPTION
Crack the Code and Get Fluent Faster! 'Ten years ago, Lewis spoke only English. But constant travel, along with a buoyant attitude, has unmasked the polyglot within.' -National Geographic #LanguageHacking is a state of mind. It's about ditching excuses, using shortcuts and taking risks. It's about learning what's indispensable, skipping what's not - and most importantly speaking from day one! How's it different? Unlike traditional language courses that are organized by level of difficulty, #LanguageHacking German focuses on the language and conversations you need to master so you can start speaking immediately, not after years of study. Key features - 10 'mission-based' units that build up to an easy-to-achieve speaking goal - 10 simple and effective 'language hacks' to exponentially boost fluency - 28 model conversations and hundreds of the most frequent and useful 'power phrases' - Clever strategies that show how even a limited vocabulary can be put to good use - Free downloadable audio and extra hacker resources Free access to the #LanguageHacking community, custom created by italki, a ground-breaking website that makes it possible to learn a new language without going abroad.
REVIEWS
It was such a pleasure to have 'The Irish Polyglot' on campus! Benny kept students engaged from his intro video reel all the way to the final Q&A of the evening. He is a dynamic speaker with fascinating stories and great tips for making the most of your time abroad. Our office appreciated his willingness to work with us to tailor his presentation to our specific audience. Though we expected students to be more interested in the travel aspects of his presentation, so many of them wanted to know more about his language hacks during the Q&A. The fact that he is young and has gone about language learning in a non-traditional way really helped them connect with his message. Benny is a speaker who is suitable for students who are just starting to explore international issues to those who are already on the track to becoming polyglots themselves -- Sabina Post Study Abroad Office, Elizabethtown College This unconventional course takes you through a series of missions designed to get you speaking the language as soon as possible. It shows you how to start conversations and keep them going, even when you don't know much of the language. It explains that many words are similar to ones you already know. It provides tips about how to memorize vocabulary, and useful cultural tips. You are also encouraged to use the dedicated iTalki website, where you can practice what you're learning, and find links to many online resources. Simon, from Omniglot.com Benny's new series makes it fun to dare to speak. This could well engage more people with a new language than some of the more traditional language books. -- Steve Kaufmann Lingq.com What Benny has done for making language learning accessible is second to none. This new series is the perfect example of that. Combining modern tech and study methods that have for far too long been lacking from traditional course books, Benny has created a great set of all-round robust language courses. -- Lindsay Dow Lindsayloveslanguages.com Benny's new Language Hacking courses are a major contribution to the language learning world. Learning with this series is like having an experienced language coach standing over your shoulder every step of the way, showing you how to learn quickly, and speak confidently right from the start. -- Olly Richards iwillteachyoualanguage.com
AUTHOR INFORMATION
Irish native Benny Lewis speaks over ten languages - all self-taught. In 2003, he spoke only one language: English. After university, he moved to Spain and was soon frustrated that he could not speak Spanish after six months of studying. So he decided to abandon traditional learning approaches and just start speaking - and everything changed. Today Benny is known as The Irish Polyglot and speaks Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Hungarian. He is the author of the bestselling book on language learning, Fluent in 3 months. He also runs the largest language learning blog in the world, www.fluentin3months.com, where he breaks down the language learning process for busy people. Lewis is a full-time 'language hacker', and devotes his time to finding better, faster, and more efficient ways to learn languages. For the first time, he has applied his methods to helping people learn specific languages in his new Language Hacking series.
