Fluency Guide (Learn Any Language Smarter, Not Harder) by Diana Volkaviciute can be a tall order for any author to fill. For the most part, this guide book does just that. In clear and concise language, the author uses positive reinforcement to encourage the reader wanting to learn a foreign language that this can be achieved using the methods in this book. In my own case, I remember how I took French in high school at a time when textbooks and repetition was the standard rule. As the author points out in her guide book, we now have the internet as well as other methods to help us. Without going into too much detail, we are given the tools to not only learn a foreign language but to improve on and perfect our proficiency in it.
Fluency Guide has a good amount of interesting facts about the many different languages used on the planet. Did you know that there are about 250,000 words in the English language dictionary, but we only regularly use about 800 words in normal conversation? Also, I found out from reading this guide that there are up to 6000 different languages spoken in the world. The reader will also learn what the most popular language in the world is. (Hint, it is not English.) There are also quotes from famous people to encourage you in your quest to learn or improve your foreign language skills. All in all, Fluency Guide by Diane Volkaviciute is a very helpful learning tool.
