Gabriel Wyner is the author of Fluent Forever, the best book on language learning that we've ever read. He's an author, polyglot, former profesional opera singer, has degrees in mechanical engineering and opera, and he successfully funded a series of pronunciation trainers on kickstarter.com
His ideas on language learning have really changed the way that we are approaching learning spanish. Focusing more on pronunciation and way less on translations. This is the book we wish we had before we spent hundreds of dollars a Rosetta Stone with the idea of learning Spanish before going to South America.
This episode is all about the best methods for learning a language, despelling myths about who is and who isn't a good language learner, and how learning the local language adds to your travels. You'll leave feeling way more capable and inspired to learn a language!

- That language learning doesn't need to take years
- How to make learning languages fun
