I'm super thrilled to be joined by Lauren Lewis (née Cutlip) from Fluent in 3 Months, who recently released a video series about learning Russian using the speak from day 1 approach.
In the season finale of the Actual Fluency Podcast I'm joined by none other than Benny Lewis. Benny has been a huge inspiration for me and today we talk about language encouragement and how the polyglot community has evolved over the years.
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.
Today I bring on the man behind the Add1Challenge: Brian Kwong. I sadly started my language learning journey slightly after the first Add1Challenge, but just based on sheer popularity I knew I had to join the next one. I also ran into Brian in Berlin so it was great to meet him in person as well.
On the episode today we discuss the new Add1Challenge, where the signup process starts TODAY! and runs onto the 18th of July. Be sure to sign up before and make your application as good as it can be as the spots are limited to 150 people.
On this episode I am super excited to welcome Lauren and Benny to the podcast, I had been trying to get Benny on the show for a good while to talk about his book, but due to a busy schedule he was unavailable. Then by the time we set up an interview in Berlin he had already been asked just about any possible question about the book, so I had to think deep in order to provide an angle where we could learn something from Benny, but without it being him responding to the same old questions he had been asked time and time again.
Fluent in 3 Months Book Review: In this post I take a look at the best-selling book, where acclaimed polyglot Benny Lewis teaches everyone how they can learn the fundamentals of a language quicker, and have conversations in a new language within 3 months.
