"Fluent In 3 Months" Author In San Diego


Benny Lewis, "Fluent in 3 Months" author


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.

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."
