Benny Lewis: "Language Hacking" | Talks at Google

source: Talks at Google    2016年10月13日
Best-selling author, entrepreneur and polygot Benny Lewis speaks 11 languages - all self-taught.
In 2003 at the age of 21, he spoke only one language: English.
After becoming frustrated with traditional language learning approaches he developed his own method - and everything changed.
Today Benny is known as The Irish Polyglot and speaks Esperanto, Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Irish, Dutch and knows American Sign Language.
His YouTube videos have been viewed more than 6.5 million times, and he runs the largest language learning blog in the world, www.fluentin3months.com, where he breaks down the language learning process for almost one million unique visitors every month.
A full-time 'language hacker', he devotes his time to finding better, faster, and more efficient ways to learn languages. Unlike most traditional language courses that try to teach you the rules, #LanguageHackingshows you how to learn and speak specific languages through proven memory techniques, unconventional shortcuts and conversation strategies.
He is an Irish Language Ambassador for the EU and in 2013 was named National Geographic Traveller of the Year. His first book, Fluent in 3 Months, was published in 2014, and was an instant bestseller in the US, Canada and the UK.
