THE FIXER METHOD: PART 1
Once I’ve started speaking a new language, this method is the reason why I make such rapid progress. And I want to share it with you, and show it in action!
MILESTONES AND MINI-MISSIONS: PART 1
Learn how I use mini-missions and milestones to keep myself excited about a new language, even when the going gets tough.
Small niggles can become BIG barriers when you’re a rapid language learner. I’ll show you how to put them into perspective, so they don’t become excuses that derail your language learning.
You don’t have to travel to immerse yourself in another language and culture. I’ll show you how to “travel at home” so you’ll get all the immersion you need.
THE FIXER METHOD: PART 2
An opportunity to put the “Fixer Method” into action to give you a better chance of reaching your language goals.
BENNY’S LANGUAGE HACKING DASHBOARD

MILESTONES AND MINI-MISSIONS: PART 2
How to make sure your milestones happen, and how to tweak them if they’re not working for you.
Once you’ve comfortable in conversation, you’re ready to start reading and listening. You’ll learn how to find reading and listening materials that challenge you just enough to keep improving.
I open up about my biggest failures and mistakes in my language missions — because in being real and raw about your mistakes, you can put them in perspective and see just how far you’ve come.
THE ROAD AHEAD
Party time! We’ll celebrate our wins together, and look at the longterm maintenance of your new language, as well as future intensive missions.
BONUS MODULE 1:
SPEAK WITH THE LOCALS
How to find locals to speak with when you’re travelling, including what to talk about, what questions to ask, and what to do if you need a confidence boost.
BONUS MODULE 2:
How to travel comfortably to less touristy destinations, immerse yourself in other cultures, and do it all on a budget that doesn’t break the bank.
Is Benny's Bootcamp worth it?
This is an unprecedented opportunity to be part of a new community, and get direct coaching from one of the world's finest language hackers.
The monetary cost is not insignificant – but that will definitely help you stay more committed.
Since this is a brand new product I can't evaluate the end result of it, but what I can say is:
If you follow what Benny has to teach you, you will get further in 3 months than you've done in years before with your language learning ambitions.
In that sense the investment seems easy to defend, as you will be able to use the strategies and tools to learn any and all future languages you desire.
