Fluent in 3 Months: All Language Missions


Full disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. ?

So you'd like to see my Fluent in 3 Months language missions?

You've come to the right place!

I set up Fluent in 3 Months to share language hacking tips and to tell the real, gritty stories of how language hacking works for me.

For over a decade I travelled around the world, and whenever I was in a new country for more than a few days, I set myself the mission of learning and speaking as much of the language as I could in that time.

In 2009, I began sharing these stories on my blog.

These are “case studies” in language hacking, if you like.

Later, I started sharing missions where I’d learn the language of one country while living in another country – such as learning Arabic while living in Brazil, or learning Japanese while living in Spain.

More recently, I've settled down in New York, and my new mission has been creating language courses. Meanwhile, Fluent in 3 Months has grown into a team, and other team members (including my partner, Lauren) have taken on the mantle of language missions.

Below are all my language missions – and all the Fluent in 3 Months language missions – with all the glory and all the “failure”. Remember that a cornerstone of language hacking is the willingness to make mistakes – and I'm completely open about where things went well, and where they went wrong.

I’ll keep adding to this list as new missions are published on Fluent in 3 Months.

I’m sure you’ll find something in these missions to inspire your own language learning.

Here they are – enjoy! And please leave a comment to let me know about your language missions.
