Publisher's Summary

Memory is the greatest challenge to learning a foreign language; there are just too many words and too many rules. For every new word we learn, we seem to forget two old ones, making fluency seem out of reach.

Fluent Forever tackles this challenge head-on. Starting with pronunciation, you'll learn how to rewire your ears and turn foreign sounds into familiar sounds. And with the help of sophisticated spaced-repetition techniques, you'll be able to memorize hundreds of words a month in minutes every day. This is brain hacking at its most exciting, taking what we know about neuroscience and linguistics and using it to create the most efficient and enjoyable way to learn a foreign language in the spare minutes of your day.

Don't get the audiobook.

If you are interested in this book, do not get the audio version. There is no way to access the graphics- they are not available on the authors website- at least not without paying, and these are vital for understanding the material. The author keeps referring to the appendices which are unavailable in this format. Save your money

Great information. Hard to follow occasionally without the visual illustrations available in the hardcopy though.

It REALLY works.... IF you do!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely!The techniques really work, and work for more than just languages.I now use the SRS system to create guides to study nearly everything...

Who was your favorite character and why?

n/a

Which character – as performed by Gabriel Wyner – was your favorite?

n/a

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It helped me find a key to unlock a language I could not speak, NOW I am truly speaking coherently, writing clearly, and learning every day.It does take a lot of preparation work, but its the preparation work that opens the door to the language, the SRS methodology is what makes it STICK...

Any additional comments?

If you want fast, permanent fluency in any language, are willing to work to get it, and love exploring the magic of languages, this is the method you are looking for....

Ger audio and haedcover

Passionate about his cause and methods and no doubt they work. Well resourced. Certainly requires the hardcover version, but audio keeps up interest. Good narrarator for an author.

The first learning system I have stuck with

I have tried more learning German systems than I can remember. From Rosetta Stone to intensive classes. This is the first method that has kept my interest and gives me the instant gratification that I am actually getting somewhere with my German. It does take a lot of work but I know it is working and I really appreciate the methods, tips, and results.

Not worth the money.

Buy the book. The author’s performance is great but the audio book isn’t worth the price. Not even a free credit with audible.

This audiobook is excellent

As a book it is a very intelligent, insightful and easy to follow reading. I got a lot of practical tips and correct ways to study a language, as well as the reasoning behind everything.

The audiobook reading is superb. The accents for foreign languages are on point, the reading moods conveying, and I didn't need any chart or visual aid (although it has a mobile friendly website for footnotes of these kind). I like to listen to it for its insights and humor.

Innovative

This book has completely changed my efforts to learn German, a language I wanted to learn since the age of 8. I was fascinated by the book since the beginning. Sometimes I was begging for more traffic (listening while commuting...)! I was never expecting to get stuck with a book. I love the author's passion about languages. I went to his website and I spent time searching around and watching his YouTube videos . I never thought that pronunciation is so important. I admire the quality of work invested for this book. I imagine that the author is very happy because he has discovered the reason of his existence, the purpose of his life! He is on a mission and there many who want to follow him and try to find out their own mission!

Great method

I enjoyed every minute of this book. I think it makes a lot of sense, and I hope that a year from now I'll finally be fluent in the languages I've been trying to learn for almost two decades.

Best used in conjunction with book

I really like the method presented and the audio book is very good though reliance on internet resources and imagery can make it a tough listen.
Great overall an I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Fantaatic resource, however...

It would be good if a pdf of the appendices was available from Audible. Apart from that, this is great.

Inspiring

You will learn many techniques and strategies that are both practical and approachable towards learning any language.

YET, I found the greatest takeaway from this book was the inspiration I got for learning my second language.

Read, learn and be inspired. Fluency isn’t as far off as you’d think.

Inspiring

After visiting Indonesia in 2013, I took up the challenge of learning Bahasa Indonesia. I tried many of the well advertised language learning tools, attended classes, and waded through many Learn Bahasa Indonesia books. It was a hard slog, but this year, when I was in Indonesia on holidays, I confidently held conversations with the local people in Bahasa Indonesia. Next year I'm off to Vietnam, and I thought to myself, how much can I learn before I go? I'd heard of Gabe's book, so I thought I'd try it out.
This is a great resource for those people who are interested in learning new languages, whilst I was a little sceptical at first, having seen many advertisements on FB, I have started to apply some of Gabe's techniques to kickstart my Vietnamese language learning.
It is easy to visualise the concepts laid down by the author, and I was inspired to start employing the language learning strategy laid out by the author.
For those interested in learning languages, I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to mastering the basics of a new language much faster than it took me to learn Bahasa.
