The ultimate rapid language-learning guide! For those who've despaired of ever learning a foreign language, here, finally, is a book that will make the words stick.At thirty years old, Gabriel Wyner speaks six languages fluently. He didn't learn them in school -- who does? -- rather, he learned them in the past few years, working on his own and practicing on the subway, using simple techniques and free online resources. In Fluent ForeverWyner reveals what he's discovered. The greatest challenge to learning a foreign language is the challenge of memory; there are just too many words and too many rules. For every new word we learn, we seem to forget two old ones, and as a result, fluency can seem out of reach. Fluent Forevertackles this challenge head-on. With empathy for the language-challenged and abundant humor, Wyner deconstructs the learning process, revealing how to build a foreign language in your mind from the ground up. Starting with pronunciation, you'll learn how to rewire your ears and turn foreign sounds into familiarsounds. You'll retrain your tongue to produce those sounds accurately, using tricks from opera singers and actors. Next, you'll begin to tackle words, and connect sounds and spellings to imagery, rather than translations, which will enable you to thinkin a foreign language. And with the help of sophisticated spaced-repetition techniques, you'll be able to memorize hundreds of words a month in minutesevery day. Soon, you'll gain the ability to learn grammar and more difficult abstract words--without the tedious drills and exercises of language classes and grammar books. This is brain hacking at its most exciting, taking what we know about neuroscience and linguistics and using it to create the most efficient and enjoyable way to learn a foreign language in the spare minutes of your day.… (mais)

One can probably just read through all the posts on fluent-forever.com and forgo the book. In the end, I rather enjoyed Wyner's writing style and found his explanation of the no-translation method of language learning inspiring. ( )

How to use flash cards. I skipped a lot because since the book was published, the author has released his own app which takes care of the card system for you. Learning on that. ( )

useful. I learned a lot about ways to study and balance approaches for different parts of speech ( )

As a professional linguist (first in academia, then in industry), I know a little something about language pedagogy and how languages work. Nevertheless, it seems I'm a sucker for any sources that claim to have tips for making language learning more effective. I can't resist browsing through them to see if I might find a new tip I haven't heard of before, and 99% of the time, I'm disappointed.

This book pleasantly surprised me: it does contain some techniques I haven't heard of before. A lot of it was old news for me (learn high-frequency words first, pay attention to pronunciation, etc.) and much of it is an advertisement for spaced repetition, but there are some more novel tips here that really show promise. I love the author's idea for learning grammatical gender/noun class! (Hint: make it visual to help remember it.) Simple but effective, and he presents good ideas for making visual aids for even the function words with abstract meanings that are often difficult to visualize. (What image would you use for "the", for example?)

I did find the organization of the book a bit strange, but if you're willing to jump around and grab the bits that are useful to you, I think it could be very helpful. ( )

I thought this book builds a solid foundation for learning a language. I started learning a new language a couple months ago (not regularly, however), and I'm glad I read this before I got any further. He provides solid advice for different flashcards to make, and I found his advice very helpful.

Another reviewer commented that his writing about gender made his book outdated. This is pretty confusing, as the book came out in 2014, and many languages still use gender...... so.... not quite sure what that was about. I was having trouble remembering genders for my language, and I think his advice has helped immensely.

I'd definitely recommend this to anyone studying a new language. At the end of each section, he even includes advice on how intermediate/advanced students should progress. The content was easy to follow, and his writing was funny to boot. ( )
