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.

About Benny Lewis
Benny Lewis spoke
only one language, English, in 2003, and even that one had given him trouble,
as he had to have speech therapy. Benny barely passed German in high
school and was so poor in the Irish language that he had to drop down to the lower-level examination just to get into the university. He moved to Spain after
graduating with an engineering degree, and six months into his stay there he
still couldn’t speak or understand Spanish beyond the most basic level. Today
Benny is the known as the Irish Polyglot and speaks an amazing ten languages
fluently. He also runs the largest language learning blog in the world, which
receives more than 400,000 unique visitors every month.
