"I had to learn [a new language] in a handful of days for a TV interview. I asked Benny for help and his advice was invaluable." - Tim Ferriss
What if you could skip the years of study and jump right to speaking German? Sound crazy? No, it's language hacking. It's about learning what's indispensable, skipping what's not - and using what you've learned to have real conversations in German - from day one!
Unlike most traditional language courses that try to teach you the rules of a language, Language Hacking German, shows you how to learn and speak German immediately through proven memory techniques, unconventional shortcuts and conversation strategies perfect by one of the world's greatest language learners, Benny Lewis, aka the Irish Polyglot.
Language Hacking takes a modern approach to language learning, blending the power of online social collaboration and the 80/20 principle of learning (Benny's ten #languagehacks show you how to achieve more with less!). It focuses on the conversations and language that learners need to master right away, rather than presenting language in the order of difficulty like most courses. This means you can start having conversations immediately.
Each of the 10 units culminates with a speaking mission that you can choose to share on the italki Language Hacking learner community (www.italki.com/languagehacking) where you can give and get feedback and extend your learning beyond the pages of the book.
The audio for this course is available for free on library.teachyourself.com or from the Teach Yourself Library app.
You don't need to go abroad to learn a language any more.

What Benny has done for making language learning accessible is second to none. This new series is the perfect example of that.

This unconventional course takes you through a series of missions designed to get you speaking the language as soon as possible. It shows you how to start conversations and keep them going, even when you don't know much of the language. It explains that many words are similar to ones you already know. It provides tips about how to memorize vocabulary, and useful cultural tips. You are also encouraged to use the dedicated iTalki website, where you can practice what you're learning, and find links to many online resources. * Simon, from Omniglot.com *
It was such a pleasure to have 'The Irish Polyglot' on campus! Benny kept students engaged from his intro video reel all the way to the final Q&A of the evening. He is a dynamic speaker with fascinating stories and great tips for making the most of your time abroad. Our office appreciated his willingness to work with us to tailor his presentation to our specific audience. Though we expected students to be more interested in the travel aspects of his presentation, so many of them wanted to know more about his language hacks during the Q&A. The fact that he is young and has gone about language learning in a non-traditional way really helped them connect with his message. Benny is a speaker who is suitable for students who are just starting to explore international issues to those who are already on the track to becoming polyglots themselves -- Sabina Post * Study Abroad Office, Elizabethtown College *
