Meet Benny Lewis, the Irish Polyglot! Benny is fluent in six languages, for real. Here’s the best part: he says you can be too.
Benny insists that he is not a magical language genie, and that you don’t have to spend hundreds (thousands) of dollars on fancy software or pricey classes.
Take a listen to our delightful chat with Benny to learn about “language hacking”, world travel, and the real source of his magic: observation and practice.
