Conversation Countdown Review: Can you speak in a week?

In this post I give a brief overview of Benny Lewis' course: Conversation Countdown, and how you can use it to get a very fast start in learning any foreign language.

What is Conversation Countdown?

Conversation Countdown is a video course created by Benny Lewis, the man behind Fluent in 3 Months.  The course teaches you how to have a conversation with a native speaker of your target language in just 7 days.

What you'll learn in the course

  • How to find native speakers to practice with, no matter where you live
  • Avoid the awkwardness usually associated with starting to speak a new foreign language
  • Develop confidence to speak in front of other people
  • How to immerse yourself, just like children when they learn languages
  • How to choose the words that are most effective to learn, so you don't learn unneccesarily rare words, you'll never use
  • How to make your learning into a mission, for higher success
  • How to become an independent, self-driven language learner
  • How to start speaking a language way faster than you thought were possible
  • How to have your first conversation with a real person in your target language – within a week.

The course costs $97 for lifetime access. However you can often pick it up in a bundle deal, so be sure to keep an eye out for that 🙂
