Fluent Forever

Unknown“A brilliant and thoroughly modern guide to learning new languages. Fluent Forever won’t teach you French, or German, or any other language – but it will teach you how to learn whatever language you do want to learn, and to learn it faster, and more efficiently.  If you want a new language to stick, start here.”
–Gary Marcus, cognitive psychologist and author of the New York Times bestseller Guitar Zero
