Talk: Language Hacking

Best-selling author, entrepreneur and polygot Benny Lewis speaks 11 languages - all self-taught. In 2003 at the age of 21, he spoke only one language: English. After becoming frustrated with traditional language learning approaches he developed his own method - and everything changed. Today Benny is known as The Irish Polyglot and speaks Esperanto, Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Irish, Dutch and knows American Sign Language. His YouTube videos have been viewed more than 6.5 million times, and he runs the largest language learning blog in the world, www.fluentin3months.com, where he breaks down the language learning process for almost one million unique visitors every month.
