“Language software can costs hundreds and hundreds of dollars. Workbooks and courses just as much. When I look to spend my money on something, I look to buy from someone with the “heart of a teacher” who has walked-the-walk. In the realm of language learning, that person is Benny Lewis. In this area, I’ve never read a more valuable product. Benny has sparked my interest in learning another language, and shown me that I really can do it!

You won’t regret picking up a copy of the Language Hacking Guide! I sure don’t!”

“Benny has an awesomely unconventional approach to learning languages, stressing the importance of confidence in your own abilities, and the necessity of action over perfectionism. He also has helpful tips for making the time to learn, and unique ways to connect with native speakers, whether you’re at home or traveling. If you want to learn new languages, Benny’s Language Hacking Guide is invaluable!”

“Benny’s e-book is one-of-a-kind out there. In it he addresses some of the critical things that other language books neglect; how to maintain the right attitude while learning a foreign language, how to deal with frustrations, and how to establish an immersion environment without actually being in the native country. I would’ve paid double the price for the e-book because it has saved me months if not years worth of time in learning a foreign language in the optimal way!”

“I loved the fact that a series of interviews and a handful of worksheets accompanied the actual Language Hacking Guide PDF file and I really felt that the Guide was well worth the money. The worksheets were really helpful in making me pinpoint my language learning goals etc. and listening to all the interviews really made me inspired to work harder towards my goals. I appreciated the fact that Benny emphasized the crucial difference between “thinking about” and “doing” and I absolutely loved the fact that he didn’t sugar-coat everything and that he strongly encouraged his readers to stop being timid recluses and to just speak in their target language.”
