"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 Italian? 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 Italian - from day one!
Unlike most traditional language courses that try to teach you the rules of a language, Language Hacking Italian, shows you how to learn and speak Italian 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.

Benny was fantastic. He lived up to everything. He had the students asking question after question. We had over 100 students packed in the auditorium. Considering we were up against another event on campus, that is pretty awesome. His intro video was great, his presentation was spot on. We appreciated him spreading the word to travel on our programs, but getting the students engaged to travel anywhere in the world - Lock Haven University
Inspiring and epic words. Everyone left that speech with a new sense of purpose for not just learning, but living a new language - Trivago
Ten years ago, Lewis spoke only English. But constant travel, along with a buoyant attitude, has unmasked the polyglot within - National Geographic
Our conference was by far Poland's most successful one yet, an accomplishment owing in large part to the enthusiasm, inspiration, and knowledge brought to the stage by Mr. Lewis - TEDx Warsaw
