A cog with Benny's face

What is language hacking?

Language “hacks” are shortcuts you can use to get fluent faster.

You focus on learning what you need to know right now, instead of everything you “might” need to know in the future.

Language hacking gets you speaking right from day one! You'll be having real conversations with people.

You don’t need a super memory. And it’s definitely not about having perfect grammar.

You just need to be willing to give new things a try.

It may be a bit unconventional… but it’s not magic. It’s just a smarter way to learn languages.

And anyone can do it. Are you in?

"Ten years ago, Lewis spoke only English. But constant travel, along with a buoyant attitude, has unmasked the polyglot within."National Geographic
"...a polyglot viral sensation... eager to show people that the best way to learn is by conversing."MSN
"Benny Lewis is the Eckhart Tolle of language learning."Anna Codrea-Rado, the Guardian
"Lewis focus on the benefit to business of multilingual language ability is striking a resonant chord."Cheryl Conner, Forbes
"Our conference was by far Poland's most successful one yet, an accomplishment owing in large part to the enthusiasm, inspiration, and knowledge brought to the stage by Mr. Lewis."TedX Warsaw

Inside each Language Hacking course you will find:

  • Shortcuts (#languagehacks) to learn Spanish, fast
  • The power words and phrases you can use right now to have real conversations in Spanish
  • Confidence hacks so you can start speaking Spanish from day one
  • Your access code to a community of likeminded language hackers

  • Introduce yourself.
  • Ask and answer hundreds of useful questions.
  • Find and connect with native speakers no matter where you live.

You’ll gain the skills and strategies to have countless conversations - entirely in Spanish - as well as the confidence to keep them going.



Here's what I know: Language Hacking is the most effective way to learn a language. That's why I want these courses to hit the bestseller charts from day one.

I’ve reached out to my polyglot and travel friends (who have been INCREDIBLY generous) and put together some mind blowing pre-order bonus packages.

The more books you order, the better your bonus.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve just pre-ordered! How do I get my bonuses?

Send us your e-mail receipt showing all your confirmed pre-orders to benny+promo@fluentin3months.com.

We’ll send you all your digital bonuses within 48 hours!

For the MASTERY and ULTIMATE tiers: Bonuses unique to the tiers for 25+ courses will be sent 30 days after your Language Hacking courses have been delivered to your address. If you qualify for the MASTERY or ULTIMATE tier, we’ll arrange to send your additional physical bonuses to the pre-order address you provide.

I pre-ordered last week/month! What do I do?

Just send us an email and let us know! Include the receipt for both your previous purchase and any additional purchases, so we can be sure to send you all your bonuses.

Note: Any additional receipts must be in your name. Unfortunately we can’t send out bonuses if you are using someone else’s purchase receipt.

Can I pre-order the Language Hacking courses in my local bookstore?

Sure you can - as long as your local bookstore accepts pre-orders, and will give you a pre-order receipt showing your name and address.

Why order more than one course?

Plenty of reasons! We recommend sharing.

You could give extra courses as a gift to family or friends, or even a local library, school or college. A book is an amazing gift - and one that people remember for a long time. Giving away books is also a brilliant way to stand out at networking events.

You could get together with friends to place a big pre-order, and share out the bonuses (see the next question for how to do this). Learning a language with a friend is a great way to stay accountable. Plus, it's more fun!

There are four different courses available - so you could decide to learn all four languages. Or add the extra courses to your reference library.

Language hacking is a completely different approach to language learning. So however your share the courses, you’ll be changing people’s approach to language learning, and making it simpler for them to learn languages - forever.

Can I join with friends to place a big pre-order?

Absolutely! You can pool your resources with friends to make a big pre-order, but we can only send you bonuses if you provide a receipt for the full number of books ordered delivered to a single person at a single address. Unfortunately we can’t send out bonuses if you are using someone else’s purchase receipt.

Also, bear in mind that you’ll receive just one set of bonuses - and the digital bonuses are copyrighted, so can’t be shared.

Want to place a huge bulk order? Email benny+promo@fluentin3months.com to discover the extra special bonuses we can offer you.

Please note: To claim your bonuses you must pre-order before the courses publish in your country (September 8th in the UK and Europe, and September 27th in the US and Canada), and email your pre-order receipt to benny+promo@fluentin3months.com. Bonuses unique to the MASTERY and ULTIMATE tiers will be sent 30 days after your Language Hacking courses have been delivered to your address. Bonuses for the MASTERY and ULTIMATE tiers will be sent upon verification of your book delivery and receipt.
