Have you always wanted to learn how to speak Spanish but simply didn't have the time? Well look no further. 0You hold in your hands the most advanced and revolutionary method that was ever designed for QUICKLY becoming conversational in a language. In creating this time saving program, master linguist Yatir Nitzany spent nearly three years examining the 27 most common languages in the world and distilling from them the 350 words that are most likely to be used in real conversations. These 350 words were chosen in such a way that they are structurally interrelated, and when combined, they form sentences. Through various other discoveries about how real conservations work, that are detailed further in this book, Nitzany created the necessary tools for linking these words together in a specific way so that you may to become fluent NOW. If your desire is to learn complicated grammatical rules, or to speak Shakespearean Spanish, this book is NOT for you. However, if you need to actually hold a conversation whilst on a trip to a Spanish speaking country, to impress that certain someone, or to be able to speak with your grandfather or grandmother as soon as possible, then the Nitzany Method is what you have been looking for. This method is designed for fluency in a foreign language, while communicating in the present tense. Nitzany believes that what's most important is actually being able to understand and be understood by another human being right away. More formalized training in grammar rules, etc. can all come later. The first in a series of instructional language guides, the Nitzany Method's revolutionary approach is the only one in the world that uses it's unique language technology to actually enable you to speak and understand native speakers in the shortest amount of time possible. No more depending on volumes of books of fundamental, beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, all with hundreds of pages in order to learn a language. With "Conversational Spanish Quick and Easy" all you need are 53 pages. Learn Spanish today, not tomorrow, and get started NOW! Note and DISCLAIMER from the Author: I wish to stress this program is by NO means, shape, NOR form a phrase book!! The sole purpose of this book is to give you a fundamental platform to enable you to connect certain words to become conversational. Please also read the "Introduction" and the "About Me" section prior to commencing the program. In order to succeed with my method, please start on the very first page of the program (page #16) and fully master one page at a time prior to proceeding to the next, otherwise you will overwhelm yourself and fail. Please do NOT skip pages, nor start from the middle of the book. It is a myth that certain people are born with the gifted talent to learn a language and this book disproves that myth. With this method anyone can learn a foreign language as long as you follow these EXPLICIT directions: Memorize the vocabulary on each page, follow it by using a notecard to cover the words you have just memorized and test yourself. Then read the sentences below which are created from the vocabulary bank which you just mastered. Once fully memorized, then give yourself the green light to proceed to the next page. Again, if you proceed to the following page without mastering the previous, you are guaranteed to gain nothing from this book. If you follow the prescribed steps you will realize just how effective and simplistic this method is.

It's true that some people spend years studying German before they finally get around to speaking the language. But here's a better idea. Skip the years of study and jump right to the speaking part. Sound crazy? No, it's language hacking. Unlike most traditional language courses that try to teach you the rules of German, #LanguageHacking shows you how to learn and speak German through proven memory techniques, unconventional shortcuts and conversation strategies perfected by one of the world's greatest language learners, Benny Lewis, aka the Irish Polyglot. Using the language hacks -shortcuts that make learning simple - that Benny mastered while learning his 11 languages and his 'speak from the start' method, you will crack the language code and exponentially increase your language abilities so that you can get fluent faster. It's not magic. It's not a language gene. It's not something only "other people" can do. It's about being smart with how you learn, learning what's indispensable, skipping what's not, and using what you've learned to have real conversations in German from day one. The Method #LanguageHacking takes a modern approach to language learning, blending the power of online social collaboration with traditional methods. It focuses on the conversations that learners need to master right away, rather than presenting language in order of difficulty like most courses. This means that you can have conversations immediately, not after years of study. Each of the 10 units culminates with a speaking 'mission' that prepares you to use the language you've learned to talk about yourself. Through the language hacker online learner community, you can share your personalized speaking 'missions' with other learners - getting and giving feedback and extending your learning beyond the pages of the book . You don't need to go abroad to learn a language any more.
