Welcome to Fluent in 3 Months (FI3M), a community and learning resource for language learners all around the world.

I’m Benny Lewis, a fun-loving Irish guy, a full-time globe trotter and international bestselling author.

Since 2003, I’ve become a fluent and confident speaker of seven languages. And I’m able to have confident conversations in many others.

I help people just like you to feel confident in speaking another language, even if they’ve only just started learning. My mission in life is giving people permission to make mistakes. The more mistakes you make, the faster you become a confident language learner.

Thousands of language learners have been successful with my approach. Here are just two examples:

“Benny rocks! I had to learn Tagalog in a handful of days, well enough for a live TV interview. I asked Benny for help, and his advice was invaluable. The interview was a huge success.”

원문 읽기


언어를 잘 하는 사람들의 특징은 타고났다기 보다 사람들과의 소통을 즐기는 성격이 강하고, 또한 언어를 새롭게 습득하면서 세상에 대해 새롭게 얻고 알게 되는 모든 것을 순수의 눈과 마음으로 기뻐하는 천성이라는 것이다.

그리고 이제 외국어 3,4 개 하는 것은 대세가 되었다.

스마트폰 시대가 SNS를 통해서 지구촌을 국경없이 넘나들게끔 모든 이로 하여금 여행의 꿈을 부추겼으며 실제로 젊은이들은 하루가 다르게 배낭을 메고 저마다 세계로 나가며 자신의 길을 찾는다.

이들이 제일 먼저 부딪치는 것은 낯선 이들을 만나서 그동안 익힌 외국어를 겁내지 않고 들이대며 소통하는 것이다.

실수를 하세요. 실수를 하는 만큼 언어는 습득하기 쉬워지는 겁니다.- 베니 루이스

이 젊은이가 ‘3달 내로 유창해 지는 외국어배우기’를 통해서 추구하는 것은 무엇인가?

그것이 앞으로 이 포스팅의 살을 붙여가는 이야기의 중심이 될 것이다.

While in Spain, I met a guy who changed my life. He was at an international party, switching from one language to another as he moved between guests.

“How do you do it?” I asked.

He explained that to speak a language, you’ve just got to start speaking it. There’s no magic, he said. You only need a willingness to make mistakes.

I tried his advice, and I’ve never looked back since.

Learning languages has given me confidence in conversations, new friends and insight into other cultures. It’s opened up new worlds for me. I set up this community so others can have the same experience.
