"Fluent in 3 months," or how not to "wimp out," learning a foreign language

Rubryka, together with the "Fabula" publishing house, shares the advice from the book "Fluent in 3 Months: How Anyone at Any Age Can Learn to Speak Any Language from Anywhere in the World" by Benny Lewis. Careful! This article can motivate you to start learning the language right this second!

What is the problem?

Learning languages ​​is difficult. There are many reasons, but one of them is the peculiarities of motivation. "If I learn this language, I'll get this benefit": have you ever thought like that? These are usually benefits, such as career growth, the ability to impress the environment, prestige, passing an exam, fulfilling a wish from a list, or the like, which are examples of tangential motivations that have nothing to do with language use.

For many language learners, motivation is often superficial rather than genuine. So how do you discover the deep motivation to learn a language and make the process easier, more interesting, and more attractive for yourself, without getting bogged down in side benefits? Author of the book Fluent in 3 Months: How Anyone at Any Age Can Learn to Speak Any Language from Anywhere in the World, famous polyglot, blogger, and traveler Benny Lewis believes the bridges to people that build language learning, not the benefits you can get, are the key element to mastering the language faster, more fun and more efficient.
