I provide keynote presentations on any of the following topics.

“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.”
– Tim Ferriss
“Benny was enormously helpful in planning my year without English, especially in Spain. He has a lot of practical experience dealing with language learning from the learner's perspective. That means he knows what it's like to learn a new language and can deal with many of the practical challenges that come up. I'm confident I never would have attempted this project without Benny's help!”
– Scott Young
