"Fluent In 3 Months" Author In San Diego

GUEST:

Benny Lewis, author, polyglot, "Fluent in 3 Months"

Transcript

Many people in San Diego have the added benefit of speaking two languages. But if you didn't grow up in a bilingual family, or haven't mastered a foreign language by a certain age, you may think that ship has sailed.

Meet The Author

Benny Lewis will be discussing his book Tuesday at Warwick's Books in La Jolla at 7:30 p.m.

However, author, polyglot and National Geographic Traveler of the Year Benny Lewis says that isn't so. He said he can comfortably speak 10 languages, even though he didn't start learning them until he was an adult. Lewis believes you're never too old to learn and says the idea that some lack the "language gene" is a myth.

He outlines his method in his new book, "Fluent in 3 Months."
