A polyglot viral sensation... eager to show people that the best way to learn is by conversing―MSN

Inspiring and epic words. Everyone left that speech with a new sense of purpose for not just learning, but living a new language―Trivago
Benny was fantastic. He lived up to everything. He had the students asking question after question. We had over 100 students packed in the auditorium. Considering we were up against another event on campus, that is pretty awesome. His intro video was great, his presentation was spot on. We appreciated him spreading the word to travel on our programs, but getting the students engaged to travel anywhere in the world―Lock Haven University
Benny Lewis is the Eckhart Tolle of language learning―Guardian
About the Author
Irish native Benny Lewis speaks over ten languages - all self-taught. In 2003, he spoke only one language: English. After university, he moved to Spain and was soon frustrated that he could not speak Spanish after six months of studying. So he decided to abandon traditional learning approaches and just start speaking - and everything changed. Today Benny is known as The Irish Polyglot and speaks Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Hungarian. He is the author of the bestselling book on language learning, Fluent in 3 months. He also runs the largest language learning blog in the world, www.fluentin3months.com, where he breaks down the language learning process for busy people. Lewis is a full-time 'language hacker', and devotes his time to finding better, faster, and more efficient ways to learn languages. For the first time, he has applied his methods to helping people learn specific languages in his new Language Hacking series.

The books are easy to follow and have many helpful hints about the language as you go. The illustrations are delightful and really add to the fun of learning. I think because of the format of this book and the method of teaching language that this book would be very helpful for anyone wanting to learn Italian. It is very straight forward and teaches useful conversation. There is an app that helps with pronunciation throughout the book and you can connect with italki to be able to practice with others. Benny has hit on a superb combination of learning by writing and speaking, and he encourages using resources to add words to what you are learning that are relevant to you.
The iTalki community for the book is really cool -- I just uploaded my first video, and I've been having fun watching other folks videos. The book's author has even been commenting on them personally! Don't know how he has the time.... Anyway, this book is a totally new way to learn Italian, I pre-ordered it months ago, and now that I've got it, I couldn't be happier!
Now, I think I would have saved myself considerable time and effort had this resource been available when I started. I've traveled several times to Italy and manage to bungle through basic situations. The truth is that, as Benny so clearly states, there are some very common situations and common "conversations" ... why not cut to the chase and dig into *those* types of lessons!!!
Combining this book with italki and Teach Yourself is brilliant. I've used italki in my studies and I know that this LH will jump me back into that Skype world with more confidence and enthusiasm.
Great job, Benny (and team). Thank you for helping me with my passion!!!
Benny's Language Hacking Italian equips you with the tools you need to craft scripts to get you speaking in the language from the very first day. It helps you build confidence as a language learner and guides you along during those early stages of your learning. I think this is hugely important and that these books are a great first step for those hoping to SPEAK another language.
I really wish that this book was available when I first started with the language. It would have saved me a ton of time and would have prepared me to start speaking sooner. Regardless, I'm so glad it's a part of my language resource collection today and it will certainly be something I continue to reference as I move past my current stage in the language.
I also absolutely love the community aspects of the book and the partnership Benny put together with iTalki. It's hugely motivating to be able to share my progress with other learners and receive encouraging feedback as I work through the "missions" in the book.
