Notes on Benny Lewis
In 2003, Irish native Benny Lewis spoke only one language: English.
After college, he moved to Spain and was soon frustrated that he could not speak Spanish after six months of trying. So he decided to abandon traditional learning approaches, and everything changed.
Today Benny is the known as The Irish Polyglot and speaks over 10 languages, several at a fluent level.
He also now runs the largest language learning blog in the world, www.fluentin3months.com, which receives more than half a million unique visitors every month.
He uses his languages to travel the world and explore other cultures, living out of his backpack. (taken from the Amazon website)
Benny knew only too well the frustrations of learning Spanish. This book is a result of his language learning journey.
This book is therefore well worth considering if you are a Spanish beginner and perhaps are interested in trying some non traditional language learning tactics and hacks.
