About Benny Lewis
Benny Lewis, from Ireland and currently residing in the US, is a digital nomad and expert in rapid language learning.

“Benny was fantastic. He lived up to everything. He had the students asking question after question. We had over 100 students packed in the auditorium. Considering we were up against another event on campus, that is pretty awesome. His intro video was great, his presentation was spot on. We appreciated him spreading the word to travel on our programs, but getting the students engaged to travel anywhere in the world.” – Lock Haven University
