Are you embarrassed of speaking only one language?

Speak ANY Language Comfortably in Just 7 to 21 Days Using the Secrets of Master Linguists and Special Agents

"Our method gives you the step-by-step system to learn
ANY language at blazing speed and start speaking in just 7 to 21 days, even if:

  1. You have a full-time job
  2. You think you’re untalented
  3. You have little money to invest
  4. You’re still stuck at the “beginner” level after all these years.
This is the 12-step method that I have perfected over the last 5 years to learn over 6 languages."

Dear friend,

You’re probably already aware of the power, fun, advantages and prestige that knowing more than one language can bring you.

Yet, if you’re like most people, you probably find it very hard to imagine that you could learn to effectively communicate in any language in just 7 to 21 days, and achieve fluency within a few months.

You may have experienced the seemingly insurmountable difficulties in trying to effectively learn a foreign language.

I’m talking about the years and years of study, the frustration of not being able to communicate after having completed an “intermediate” course, and the general feeling that achieving fluency in a foreign language is probably not a possibility for you. Maybe you’re just not “talented” with languages...?

All the while, you probably know a few people who can express themselves fluently in 2, 3, 4 or even more languages. What is their special trick? What is their gift?

Well it’s no “gift” but it is indeed a little bit of a trick. It’s actually a series of tricks and techniques that can actually allow anyone to learn the language of their choice in a very short period of time.

They’ve been used by linguists, by several world travelers and even by special agents working for high-level governmental agencies.

Did you know that during World-War II, the government turned normal citizens into Japanese/English interpreters in just a few months?

Did you know that there is actually no limit to the number of languages you can learn, and that many people in the world can actually speak more than 10 languages (and no, it’s not because they were born in a multi-cultural family)?

Actually, in creating this product, I have interviewed and talked with such people. One is a man who can speak over 26 languages, and another can speak over 58 languages

Now that sounds completely outrageous, but what I’ve discovered is that it’s actually within the reach of anyone to learn any language they want and do it on their own, and be able to communicate effectively in just 7 to 21 days (achieving “fluency” takes a little longer, but not as long as you might imagine).

If you’re curious to learn more about this amazing method, read on... But before we get there, I want to talk about something else, in case you’re not sure “why” you actually NEED to know at least ONE foreign language.

It’s No Longer “Optional” to Speak Another Language

A few decades ago, US high schools didn’t think seriously about including mandatory foreign language education in their curriculum. That’s because of the arrogant mentality prevalent at the time. They felt that the rest of the world would just learn our language so we didn’t have to worry learning theirs.

Nowadays, it’s become a very much needed and, more often than not, essential advantage to at least speak another foreign language, if not more than one!

With the expansion of the Latino population in the US, and increased tourism in Spanish-speaking countries, some knowledge of Spanish is quite often necessary.

With world globalization, those who stand a chance to just survive, economically speaking, in the next decades will need to face the reality of cultures colliding and the increasing necessity of having some knowledge of some key languages, including:

  • French

  • Mandarin Chinese

  • Japanese

  • Portuguese

  • Russian

  • Arabic

  • Korean

  • German

  • And others!

Your Life After Learning a New Language

Imagine what your life would be with the knowledge of a new language. You may think it may get a little better. But you have no idea how many benefits you’ll get from knowing one or more foreign languages.

Imagine being able to express yourself in that language, make friends, travel, and speak fluently... and open yourself to a world of exciting possibilities.  

No matter what you think, the knowledge of another language is useful and increasingly necessary.

But the endeavor of learning languages is such a daunting one that most people never actually succeed with it.

The Unsuccessful Way of Learning

Let’s take a moment to think about how languages are traditionally taught, so we can kiss this unsuccessful method a big, “good bye” forever.

Imagine you decide you want to learn French, perhaps for an upcoming trip to Paris. In your enthusiasm, you decide to revive your high-school French (which never got you anywhere) by signing up for a 6-week course at your local community college.

Six weeks later, you’ve attended all the classes, and even completed your homework assignments. By the time you get to Paris, you feel a little more confident about your ability to get around using French.

Once in Paris, you’re ready to order a coffee or an orange juice on the Champs-Elysées.

To your shock and amazement, the waiter has no idea what you’re trying to say. And throughout your trip, you realize that your French actually sucks, almost as much as it used to, and so you reluctantly give up your linguistic aspiration and decide to revert to “Ugly American Who Only Speaks English” mode for the remainder of your trip.

Learning a Language in 7 Days

Now let me tell you a little secret. You can actually learn any language you want in just seven days.

That’s right. Not 7 months, or even 7 weeks... but just 7 days.

I can already hear you say that it’s impossible! That you studied French for three years in high school and you still can’t order an orange juice in Paris!

The truth is, no one can claim to be able to learn to speak a foreign language fluently in just 7 days. Anyone who does is a liar. But what you can do is learn to speak the core of a language, enough to get you around without needing a translator, in just 7 to 21 days if you follow my method.

Of course, after that, you can also use my method to learn the language even better, to eventually reach fluency... the enviable peak that every language learner wants to reach.

And you can do that in a fraction of the time most people spend (unsuccessfully) learning a foreign language.

The Theory Behind the Course

Over the last few years, I became increasingly interested in learning foreign languages. My native language is French, and it took me over 12 years to learn to speak English decently.

But I thought, there must be another way!

I was always impressed when I met people who spoke 3, 4, 5 or even 6 languages. I thought they must have had some kind of gift, or had the fortune of being raised in a multi-lingual family.

What I discovered is that polyglots (people who speak several languages) are actually mostly self-taught. And that the way they learn languages is radically different that the method I was taught in school.

Over the last 5 years, I became obsessed with finding out the secrets of these people. I interviewed several polyglots (including Barry Farber, author of How to Learn Any Language, who can speak in over 25 tongues), read several out-of-print books in over 4 languages and developed the 12-step method I now used to learn any language in a flash. 

In the last few years, while developing my method, I learned to speak German, Spanish and Portuguese well enough to be able to read a newspaper or novel in those languages without a dictionary and be able to express my thoughts on any subject both verbally and on the written page.

In addition to that, I have also learned enough Russian to get around in Russia, enough Italian to get around Italy without an interpreter, as well as bits and pieces of other languages. And I also speak French and English fluently, and I’m currently learning Chinese (a native Chinese speaker told me that my Chinese was “awesome” and I’ve only been studying it for 2 weeks).

I did all of that on my own, in my spare time (and I emphasize the word “spare”) and having more fun than I ever thought was possible.

My friends always asked me: “what is your secret?” It’s an extraordinary set of principles, based on the secrets of master linguists and spy agents (and also from my own experience and research) that I reveal in my course How to Learn Any Language in a Flash, that allows you to learn any language in 7 to 21 days, and speak fluently within a few months.

"I was able to learn some very useful Spanish in such a short time"

As all of other Fred's books, the How To Learn Any Language in a Flash provides 'no-nonsense', 'all-inclusive' and step by step process as to how to learn any language in a jiffy. And it worked! Had 4 weeks before my trip to Ecuador to learn some Spanish, procrastinated for 2 weeks ; but still was able to learn some very useful Spanish for my trip in such a short time...would not be able to do it without Fred's support - THANKS!


"Schools should be teach learning new languages with the approach outlined in book!"

I took 3 years of Spanish classes in High School, but I never learned to speak in Spanish.

In all 3 years we always focused heavily on grammar but not enough on Vocabulary. I would always have think about exactly what I wanted to say, and then try to translate it, and oftentimes, when I was done translating it in my mind, I had already forgotten the beginning of what I wanted to say! It was very hard and very stressful.

However, with THIS method, you don't focus on grammar so much in the beginning. In fact, not at all! You focus ENTIRELY on Vocabulary, and then focus on just speaking with what's inside your new vocabulary, not worrying about grammar at all.

Then you speak to people all of the time in your new language which gets you in the habit of speaking your mind, and not worrying about saying things the right way or the wrong way. You just DO it!

And then later you focus on grammar, which is easier to learn than it would have been had you learned in school because you're already used to speaking your mind, and then all you have to do is get used to adjusting your speech to follow the rules, little-by-little.

Learning with this book makes a whole lot more sense, and I believe schools should be teach learning new languages with the approach outlined in book!

If you’re still not sure about your own ability to learn a foreign language in a short period of time, it’s probably because you are still holding on to some misconceptions and myths about learning languages. Let’s take a look at these myths and expose them for what they are, once and for all.

MYTH #1: A child can learn faster than an adult.

Probably the number one myth about learning languages is the idea that a child can somehow learn faster than an adult. As controversial as it may sound, let me say that actually, an adult can learn a language much faster than a child!

Using her intelligence, an adult can learn a language and in greater depth than a child ever could, within a limited timeframe.

It’s true that an adult learning a foreign language will never be able to imitate a native accent with 100% accuracy, as a child would (this is an ability we lose after puberty).

But adults can still learn much faster than a child when the proper techniques are applied.

Children learn languages because they are “forced” to. For them, it’s a question of survival. They also practice constantly, day in, day out.

Adults have an advantage over children when it comes to learning languages. First, they have already mastered one language. And second, they have more knowledge and reference points that they can use to their advantage. And also, their brain is more developed.

With the right system and techniques, you can certainly learn it faster than a child.

MYTH #2 — Just watch some TV and movies and you’ll learn it automatically.

Another common myth is that you can just learn a language by engaging in “passive” learning such as watching TV and listening to the radio in the foreign language.

That simply doesn’t work. What works is “active” learning, which means anything that requires active participation on your part.

You can watch some foreign movies, sure, but it’s not going to do you any good until you have a very strong base of vocabulary.

If you’re starting from scratch, you can sit in front of the television for 10,000 hours and watch Russian television and your grasp of the Russian language at the end would be mediocre at best!

MYTH #3 — Immerse yourself in the language right away by going to the country and you’ll learn naturally. 

Past the age of around 11, we loose our ability to learn languages “naturally”. Thus, it is absolutely worthless to try to immerse yourself in the language right away by watching foreign movies, going to the country immediately or just trying to “pick it up.” You have to learn a language as an adult with the mind of an adult.

Being in the right environment does NOT guarantee that you will learn the language. It just makes it easier to practice once you have something to work with. But just being there and trying to “pick it up” naturally won’t work.

When I was living in Costa Rica, I knew plenty of expat Americans who had lived there for over 10 years full-time and still could not speak half-decent Spanish!

So again it comes to active learning versus passive learning. You have to work on the language. The language will not come to you naturally, even if you are in the right environment.

A Couple of "Basic Concepts”

If you’re wondering what is this “magic” method for learning languages in a flash, let me tell you that it’s no gimmick or “learn while you sleep trick”. It’s actually a set of 12 principles and a complete step-by-step method that anyone can use to learn the language they want in a record time.

If what you want is to know enough of a language to get around in a foreign country for a trip, you can do that in 7 to 21 days using my method.

If you want to be able to express yourself fully in a foreign language, for work, career, love or other reasons, you can do that in just a few months (depending on the language) using the principles and the methods I teach in my course.

To give you a little starting point, let me explain to you some basic concepts which I cover in detail in the course “How to Learn Any Language in a Flash” (along with a total of 12 principles that form my step-by-step approach).

But make sure you understand as you're reading about these principles that there's a major step after in terms of knowing what to DO with them.

Concept #1 — The Three Blocks of Language Learning

When you decide to learn a foreign language, you have to face three major blocks:


Common language learning courses would like us to believe that all of these categories are equally important. While this ultimately is true, if your goal is communication, you don’t have to get all of them right before you start talking.

If you think about how you learned your native language as a child, you may not remember, but you can be sure that you were not concerned with proper pronunciation and grammar. What you needed at first were words to communicate.

Watch children who are learning to speak. They don’t have any inhibitions. Their pronunciation is often off and their grammar only approximate at first, but they start talking right away using words!

That’s why I believe that vocabulary is king. Of all the three blocks in learning a language, it’s the one that holds people back from progressing!

The basis of my method is an organic and natural approach to language learning, much like children learn, but using your adult brain. Which leads us to...

Concept  #2 — Master Core Vocabulary And Speak Like Tarzan

A few years ago, I made a shocking discovery. Over 75% of our daily communication is comprised of only 500 to 800 words. Even though you may learn over 10,000 words over the course of your lifetime, you only need 500 to 800 to communicate effectively on a daily basis.

That led me to a search for this list of what is called “Core Vocabulary.”

Let’s say you are able to master this core vocabulary in any one language, with a fair pronunciation. Even without a single bit of grammar, you’ll still be able to communicate!

If I’m going to go to a country where I don’t speak the language, here’s what I do:

- I spend 7 to 21 days to master this list of core vocabulary that I have assembled myself during my various linguistic studies.

- I use “memory hooks” and other tricks that I’ll be teaching you in the course, to learn the vocabulary faster (around 10 to 20 times faster than with traditional methods).

- I start speaking right away, using what I call “Tarzan” grammar.

With “Tarzan” grammar, you basically omit all verb conjugations and you simplify the language to its simplest form. For example, “I’d like to book a hotel room for the night” becomes:

Me Want Hotel Room Tonight

Yes, it sounds crude, but it works, and natives are extremely appreciative of your effort in speaking the language.

For some languages that have very simple grammar, there’s actually not much you’ll have to change later once you get deeper into the grammar!

Now... and here’s the thing... I also ask the native speakers to talk to me the same way!

This leads to an interesting phenomenon: within just 7 days, I can speak any language I want and communicate without an interpreter or a dictionary, just by having memorized core vocabulary using memory hooks and speaking like Tarzan (while asking people to answer the same way).

Now you may be thinking... that’s not really speaking a language. It’s baby talk.

Well... bingo...! You got it my friend. Isn’t it like children learn?

Of course, you won’t be stuck at that level for very long.

In my course, I also teach you how to learn the proper grammar, increase your vocabulary and perfect your pronunciation, and I give you the exact tools to do that.

The trick to making this system work is to have the right list of words (the core vocabulary list) and the right memory tricks to retain the words that you’re learning, in a way that’s fun and not too time-consuming.

In the course, How to Learn Any Language in a Flash, you’ll get my list of core vocabulary, based on the amazing work of a Spanish linguist, which is the one that I prefer and that I use.

(The linguist that I’m referring to has actually pulled off the amazing feat of learning German from scratch during a 3 hour flight and upon arrival to Germany gave a CONFERENCE in German, without any prior knowledge of German. If you don’t believe that such as thing is possible, then you need my course!)

You’ll also get my best memory hooks tricks (also called mnemonics), which allow you to retain 10 to 20 times as much vocabulary.  And if you’re already familiar with that, you’ll love my take on it and the way I break the process down into something that’s easy to understand and use.

Here’s what makes this program really unique:


It’s a step-by-step method — I’ve been working on this for 5 years, trying to figure out what is the actually system for learning languages in a flash. And I’m not satisfied with half-baked information, so that’s why I’ve waited for so long before releasing the second edition of my course.

Other books on the subject may give you some tips on learning languages effectively, but in none of them will you find a step-by-step method. Personally, I like clear information. I like to organize thoughts in a way that makes sense for the reader (that’s you!) and create systems that you can easily put in place and know that it’s going to work for you, every single time.

Checkmark It contains ALL of my secrets — In 2003, I released the first version of my product “How to Learn Any Language in a Flash.” It was basic, but very useful. Since then, I have learned a TON and have decided to put ALL of my best secrets and techniques in this new version.
Checkmark It’s not sugar-coated. It’s based on what works — Sure, you can go to your local library and get books on “How to Learn Chinese in 5 Minutes a Day.” Do these methods actually work? I’ve tried almost all of the methods out there and I can testify that very few actually deliver. So that’s why I’ve spent so much time to research the secrets of professional linguists to find out how does one actually learn a language in a short period of time. I won’t lie to you and say that you won’t have to put in some efforts. But I can tell you that the effort will be well worth it because my method WORKS.
Checkmark I’ve actually done it myself — Few people out there can claim to be able to speak more than 3 or 4 languages, unless they are a professional linguist. The proof that my method works is that I actually have done it myself, and entirely in my spare time! I can effectively communicate in over 6 languages, and I’m learning more constantly, and learning languages is not my only hobby! I also play the guitar, practice sports, read a lot, and have many interests besides languages. So if in my spare time I can learn to speak Chinese, you can certainly learn any language you want even if you haven’t done it before.


Here’s what you’ll get with my program:

When you order the program “How to Learn Any Language in a Flash”, you’ll get instant access to my method, which includes:

The Ebook “How to Learn Any Language in a Flash” — The “meat” of my course is the ebook “How to Learn Any Language in a Flash”. In this book, I present my 12 principles for learning languages, as well as a step-by-step method that you can use to either build basic conversational proficiency in any language in 7 to 21 days, or achieve fluency within a few months.

This ebook will be available for download as soon as you place your order.

Core Vocabulary List — For years, I’ve wanted to find a good list for building core vocabulary. After reading an amazing book in Spanish by a Spanish linguist and memory expert, I have finally found a table that enables you to build core vocabulary in any language.

This list is amazing. You can use it for any language. You just have to fill it the blanks and use the memory tricks I teach in my course to remember more vocabulary in no time. The list contains the 500 to 600 words that are the most important to know in ANY language, and even prioritizes them as to which should be learned first.

You will want to print out that list and use it as your main reference and worksheet as you learn the language of your choice.

My Language Resource Guide — There’s a ton of new courses out there for learning languages. We have Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur, Instant Immersion, and many others. What should you think of all of them?

Well the good thing about having me as your teacher is that I’m an addict for language methods myself. I separate them into different categories: those that “suck”, those that are “good” and those that are “outstanding”.

In this separate bonus language resources sheet, you’ll get my reviews of the most popular methods out there, as well as lots of FREE resources that you should know when trying to learn any language.

My Language Guide — In addition to being interested in learning foreign languages, a topic that fascinates me even more is languages themselves. I have read a ton of books on linguistics and the history of language, so in this short bonus ebook I offer you my reviews of many popular languages, with some shocking and entertaining information about each of them, and also the best resources you can find for each language.
