Language Hacking French

Genre: Foreign Language Study

It's true that some people spend years studying French before they finally get around to speaking the language. But here's a better idea. Skip the years of study and jump right to the speaking part. Sound crazy? No, it's language hacking. Unlike most traditional language courses that try to teach you the rules of French, #LanguageHacking shows you how to learn and speak French through proven memory techniques, unconventional shortcuts and conversation strategies perfected by one of the world's greatest language learners, Benny Lewis, aka the Irish Polyglot. Using the language hacks -shortcuts that make learning simple - that Benny mastered while learning his 11 languages and his 'speak from the start' method, you will crack the language code and exponentially increase your language abilities so that you can get fluent faster. It's not magic. It's not a language gene. It's not something only "other people" can do. It's about being smart with how you learn, learning what's indispensable, skipping what's not, and using what you've learned to have real conversations in French from day one. The Method #LanguageHacking takes a modern approach to language learning, blending the power of online social collaboration with traditional methods. It focuses on the conversations that learners need to master right away, rather than presenting language in order of difficulty like most courses. This means that you can have conversations immediately, not after years of study. Each of the 10 units culminates with a speaking 'mission' that prepares you to use the language you've learned to talk about yourself. Through the language hacker online learner community, you can share your personalized speaking 'missions' with other learners - getting and giving feedback and extending your learning beyond the pages of the book . You don't need to go abroad to learn a language any more.

24 7 French Lessons

Release Date: 2015-07-01

Francophile Karen Eberwein had always dreamed of becoming fluent in French. She realized that the perfect way to learn is total immersion - in a small village in the Dordogne Valley. So she packs a bag, rents a rustic stone cottage, and spends nearly a year in Cenac-et-Saint-Julien, France.Karen refuses to speak English, vows to speak to anyone who is willing to talk to her, religiously carries a French dictionary, and retains a light-hearted, playful approach to learning the language. She has carefully chosen a village not dominated by tourism, arrived in December, and in a surprisingly short amount of time, the local people befriend her.Claire, her fast-talking neighbor, invites her to dinner (when it is customary to know someone for years before welcoming them inside your home) and to the 31st Exposition Nationale d'Aviculture, where Claire is showing her pigeons. The elderly man down the hill, Jean-Paul, asks Karen along on a truffle hunting adventure, a visit to a hidden, ancient walnut mill, and accompanies her to the local Occitan festival, where he shares childhood and wartime memories. The local baker invites Karen to observe a typical day at the bakery, starting at 3:00 am., to see how the breads and croissants are made. Not to be outdone, the chef at the local restaurant teaches Karen how to make the traditional Garlic Soup in time to serve it to a crowd of locals for lunch.In the process of learning a language, she becomes part of a wonderful French village. Locals who first acknowledged her with a nod, then a handshake, now greet her warmly with kisses on both cheeks. She has gained much more than a language
