The BEST Way to Learn a NEW Language
“You can learn any language if you know how” is a complete guide for the true acquisition of any language in order to be able to use them in the real world. And all that while enjoying the process, we’re not talking about conscious study, grammar rules and memorizing vocabulary lists here.
“You can learn any language if you know how” is a book for anybody who's ever asked themselves:
How can I learn new languages for real?
Thanks to this book you’ll know why the learning process hasn’t worked out for you so far, you’ll learn how you can acquire ANY language, and you’ll have access to the habits and plan that have helped me speak 7 languages so far.
These habits have nothing to do with what we’ve grown accustomed to doing of consciously learning grammar rules, memorizing vocabulary lists, studying… We’re actually talking about pleasant activities that, in most cases, we already carried out in our own native language, so you won’t even have to find the extra time to make them a part of your daily life.
Moreover, I’ve broken them down according to the different levels I’m at in the languages that I already speak and what’s worked out for me in my language acquisition journey.

Why “ You can learn any language if you know how”?
I’ve written “You can learn any language if you know how” because I’ve witnessed - including within myself - the frustration you feel when you try and look for the best way to learn a language and you can’t just make it happen.
I’ve seen a lot of motivated and hopeful people give up and even hate languages due to the way we’ve always been told languages should be learnt.
Not only does this traditional grammar approach not help you learn a language, but it also ruins anybody’s motivation and it has a number of negative side effects that will certainly spoil your language learning journey.
That’s why the main goal of this book is to let everybody know that not only can we learn any language in a different way while enjoying the process, but it’s also a way more appropriate and effective approach.
We can ALL learn ANY language while enjoying the process every step of the way and carrying out interesting and pleasant activities.
Personally, I was always really motivated when starting to learn a language, but this motivation would eventually fade away when I realized how tough, boring and inefficient the traditional grammar approach was. Unfortunately, the only approach most people know, including myself at that point.
However, since I realized how languages are actually acquired, I’ve dedicated my life to my passion and I really enjoy the process of acquiring them.
And there’s no better feeling than being able to communicate with people all around the world in their own native languages.
I finally want to be clear on something: there's NO SHORTCUT OR MAGIC FORMULA to learning a language, and I've actually put together this video with my honest, realistic and fact-based reference point on how long it actually takes to learn a language, because I appreciate honesty and because I'm tired of all those "how I learnt xyz language in a month" claims that I believe hurt so many people around the world. And watch me speak 7 languages as well on the other video so you see that what I'm talking about actually works (again, I'm not reinventing the wheel here, it's nothing but the same process by which we ALL acquired our native languages).

“This book has helped me realize in a simple way how to actually learn a foreign language. Not only does it explain in detail why it’s way more effective than the traditional methods, but it also addresses how old beliefs limit us when it comes to language learning and it shows that language learning is actually accessible for everybody.
It provides habits to establish at home, very pleasant and based on the right principles.
For those who wonder how to learn another language and want to know the way they're actually acquired, I highly recommend it.”
“If you were ever wondering why people speak multiple languages when you struggle with just your second one, this is a book for you. As a complete guide to learning languages effectively, it contains everything you need to know about the language acquisition process, explaining how to make it enjoyable, pleasant and easy.
Moreover, the author does not only write about his personal experience but he also analyzes some well known theories, basing on interesting experiments’ results.
In short: definitely worth reading.”
“Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've known about comprehensible input (CI) and Stephen Krashen and the like for awhile now, but reading your book changed me somehow. Before I read your book I think that CI was still mostly just knowledge for me, but now I feel like I've internalized the principles more than ever before.
I don't know how or why but your book gives me a sense of comfort, a sense of relief that I don't have to struggle, I don't have to worry, and I don't have to push so hard. And that for me is one of the greatest gifts I could have been given because I am very much the type of person who worries all the time if I'm putting in enough time or working "hard" enough; even though I already knew about CI principles before reading this book.
So in a sentence: Thank you for helping me relax and giving me the gift of calm.”
