Learning a new language. It’s something that everyone has on their new years resolution list for either family reasons, travel, employability or simply to broaden skills. But for many people the follow through in learning drops off – and that’s only for one language. I recently came across a book ‘Fluent in 3 months’ from Benny lewis, claiming to explain techniques as to how to effectively learning multiple languages and having the outcome at intermediate or greater understanding.
These types of titled books tend to put me off, as they remind me of the ‘get rich quick’, ‘get slim quick’ and other claimed immediate result books – which many flop more like a sack of potatoes. Surprisingly I was intrigued by the read from Benny lewis and I took away certain knowledge from the book. The talk he has done at the Warsaw tedX convention is along the same lines, and even if you’re skeptical about this, it’s certainly a thought-provoking video on how our minds can develop learning.
