If learning a new language is really difficult, can you explain how you know the English language, which has more than 100,000 words? This book aims to help readers understand how they learn and remember language. It is especially helpful for those who believe that learning a new language is difficult and time-consuming, not to mention the intense effort involved in memorizing new words and usage rules. Turning this assumption on its head, Akhila Phadnis and Meghna Chandrika Narendran show how easy it, in fact, is, providing pointers and exercises that serve as memory hacks to enhance our ability to absorb and retain vocabulary, as well as the underlying rules of grammar. What is more, it unravels basic rules that can be applied to any language and can even be used to improve proficiency in languages already known. The worksheets provided at the end of the book serve to boost and consolidate the skills imparted in every chapter. Fast and Fluent will not only help you pick up a new language fast, it will also help you communicate effectively in any language of your choice.
