Go to this blog post for a quick intro about Tim, and a full transcript of this entire interview. Otherwise, you can activate captions (in English) here on Youtube.

In this video I talked to Tim Ferriss of Four Hour Workweek fame, all about language learning. It was a great chance to see what we had in common, understand his background and motivation for getting into languages, and learn more about his strategies, as well as a fun sidebar where I try to persuade him the Irish language isn't that bad.

Sorry for the bad video quality, and only half my face coming through at times.

As mentioned briefly, I have ten copies of Tim's book I can give away to those with a US address (actually, his agent is letting me, I won't be mailing them to you from Brazil :) ).

Thumb up this video and then leave your comment here about the most valuable experience YOU have had from speaking another language, even if it's been from the basics. You might want to leave it on the blog post (link above) for more of a character limit than Youtube allows. I'll pick my favourite ten ones and request your US postal address on Monday. Thanks!

More details on his book, which is entirely about rapid learning in general, while using lots of examples from cooking, can be found here: http://fourhourchef.com/

You can be confident at speaking any language in weeks instead of years. Find out how at Fluent in 3 Months: http://www.fluentin3months.com/
