Thumbs up for Fluent Forever: How to Learn Any Language Fast and Never Forget It by Gabriel Wyner.
This book seems so useful I am overwhelmed by it. Ready to learn a language? You want this book. I don’t have enough free time and brainspace right now to tackle a project of that size, but when I do, you can bet that this will be what I reach for first.
After I learned German, I thought, “Ach! If I could just go back in time and tell myself a few things, I would have had a much easier time with this language!” I had precisely the same thought after Italian, French, Russian (which I finally learned in 2012), and Hungarian (2013’s project), This book is my time machine. If I squint my eyes just right, then you are monolingual me from nine years ago, and I’m creating a time paradox by helping you avoid all of the pitfalls and potholes that led me to make my time machine in the first place. You know how it is.
