Before I tell you about this life-changing program, let’s talk about who it’s for…
You’re a curious human and you’re fascinated with other cultures. You love to travel and marvel at how other people live and the things they’ve made.
You’re bright-eyed and open to new experiences, believe in the importance of being multicultural, and you long to be a world citizen. Speaking another language will help you live out your values and create the life you’ve always wanted.
→ Just starting out and haven’t studied a language in the past (high school Spanish doesn’t count, right?) and you’re overwhelmed or afraid that you’re “just not a language person,”
→ Actively studying (on your own or in a class) but things aren’t clicking, you can’t stay consistent, and you’re feeling frustrated and stalled,
→ An expat who just can’t seem to learn the language of your adopted country no matter what you do because everyone speaks English at you,
→ A parent or spouse who wants to teach your kids the language of your roots or learn to speak the language of your spouse’s family,
You’re in the right place. I’m going to tell you exactly how Fluent & Fab in 60 Days will give you the strategies, support, and shifts to confidently communicate in another language.
By the end of this program, you’ll:
- Learn the foundational tools and strategies to speak another language (instead of trying to cobble together a method on your own)
- Define your success and master your mindset so that you stop second-guessing your abilities and stop self-sabotaging your progress
- Learn to speak another language fluidly (instead of constantly pausing while you wait for the gears in your brain to turn) so that you can feel comfortable while traveling or while conversing with native speakers
- Find practice partners so that you can schedule speaking time and be accountable for it (instead of saying you’ll do it later and beating yourself up because you never got around to it)
- Build a habit around language practice so that you don’t quit or fall off the wagon even when life happens and you feel demotivated
- Be able to read books, watch movies, and use language in real-life scenarios (even if you’re really bad at self-study and need structure)

The Basic Tools
As someone who speaks five languages, I know a thing or two about what gets people stuck! That’s why, in this module, you’re going to learn about the basic tools I use that create the foundation for consistency and confidence.
You’ll start with a pair of simple, but effective, daily practices: the spoken minutes and morning pages. Think of these like sandpaper—after eight weeks, all the roughness that prevents you from being a smooth talker will be gone.
After that, you’ll learn how to use a powerful vocabulary tool backed by psychological research so that you remember the words and phrases you learn forever.
Finally, you’ll make solid progress on building the habits that’ll ensure you stay consistent with your practice (even after this course is over) by establishing a weekly session with yourself to immerse yourself in your target language’s culture.
- Master a series of proven, foundational tools and start speaking right away. These tactics are your sturdy foundation and they’re responsible for jumpstarting your momentum and helping you acquire true fluency in a foreign language.
- Learn how to never forget any of the words or grammar you learn so that you don’t constantly have to look up words and phrases. Mastery of more words means an easier time expressing your ideas—and becoming more fluent.
- Immerse yourself in the culture of a people that speak your language.Experiencing the language in context will help you learn more organically and remind you why you’re on this journey (and you’ll need that reminder for when it gets tough!).
Clarity & Mindset
The #1 reason people quit their language-learning journey is because they lack clarity and the right mindset. Often, we have some core mindset blocks around our own abilities. In this module, we’ll dig into your mindset and discover your “Why” so that you can stop self-sabotaging and stay consistent.
An important question to ask is: what does success look like for you? What expectations do you have around your ability to speak a new language? And how do those interact with your Why and your mindset?
You’re going to uncover and change your limiting beliefs around learning a foreign language. You’ll identify and correct crippling patterns that keep you playing small and sabotage your progress. You’ll learn how to change limiting thoughts and beliefs into ones that serve you.
- Get clear on WHY you want to learn a foreign language. When you hit a difficult problem or can’t seem to move forward, it’s easy to feel discouraged and want to quit. Having a clear Why is important to keeping you on the path to fluency.
- Define your language-learning goals and success. When you have a clear goal, it’s easy to measure your progress. Rome wasn’t built in a day; nobody becomes fluent overnight. Let’s create smart goals and celebrate your progress as it comes.
- Master your mindset and surpass limiting beliefs. Your mindset and your beliefs about your own abilities are critical to your success. Limiting beliefs are what keep you playing small and from speaking with confidence—let’s get rid of them.
- Identify and correct problematic patterns so that you don’t fall into the same roads-to-nowhere as before and so that you actually see meaningful progress on your language-learning odyssey.
Confidence (while speaking)
The key to confidence while speaking is to speak a lot. In this module, you’ll learn how to find practice partners and how to run a successful practice session. It’s important that you practice speaking with another person in a conversation, even if you’re an introvert and you’re a little shy. (But you addressed those fears in Module 2. Even if it’s scary!)
You’ll also learn how to stop interjecting English into your foreign language practice time even when you don’t know the word you want to use or how to describe the thing you’re trying to communicate about. You’ll learn how to talk around words that you don’t know so that you can build that essential flexibility into your language arsenal.
- Find people to practice speaking with. Practice partners are essential for your growth as a speaker, and finding good ones is the first step.
- Learn how to run a successful practice session, including the major agreements you and your speaking partner need to make. You’ll also get plenty of conversation prompts so you can best use your time together.
- Avoid breaking immersion by learning how to “talk around” words you don’t know so that vocabulary never limits your ability to communicate or pushes you onto the English crutch.
Consistency (How Not to Quit)
Now that you have the basic tools, you’re clear on your why and goals, and you know how to build confidence while speaking, it’s time for the secret sauce: consistency. Staying consistent with your language practice is the fastest way to get results, and if you’re here, I know you struggle with this. Don’t worry. I designed this module with you in mind.
You’ll learn how to create powerful habits and train your brain to want to study a language. You’ll get the inside scoop on how to stay consistent even when you don’t want to. And you’ll develop a plan for how consistency will help you reach your goals.
You’ll also learn how to get back into your practice after life happens and you fall out of your routine.
- Create a goal-aligned plan to reach fluency. You’ll revisit the goals you created in Module 2 and, using the tools you learned in Modules 1 and 3, build a roadmap to get you exactly where you want to be.
- Train your brain to want to practice with a habit loop. You’ll learn a simple-but-powerful psychological trick to turn language practice into something rewarding—and ultimately, something that your brain craves and wants you to do.
- Learn strategies to get back on track after life throws you off. Let’s be real—life happens. Sometimes you break routine. For many people, this is where they get out of the habit and stop making progress. In this module, you’ll learn how to keep that from being you.
Continuity (Bilingual Secrets)
Modules 1-4 gave you the foundation for language practice. In this module, you’ll learn how to break past that intermediate plateau and gain true fluency by embarking on some projects that mimic how native speakers use language.
Specifically, you’ll learn how to read your first novel in a foreign language (even if reading is really hard for you). You’ll also learn how to watch a movie without subtitles and understand what’s being said. Just like a native speaker!
Finally, you’ll embark on some real-life projects using your new language skills. You’ll get to use language in context and in the way native speakers do.
- Tackle big projects like reading your first novel or watching your first movie (without subtitles). Not only will you be able to repeat and scale this process with more difficult books and tv shows, but you’ll also check off a major milestone on the way to fluency.
- A fun, creative capstone project that’ll get you to use language in natural, real-life scenarios and common tasks.
If we didn’t meet lantern-making on the railroad tracks in a little Taiwanese mountain town (or while Couchsurfing with nudists in Montréal during Pride) let me introduce myself…
I started with high school French. I don’t remember if I chose French, or if it was thrust upon me by some school superintendent who picked names out of a sorting hat, but I DO remember the bus ride home after my first French class, memorizing every single word in the first three chapters of the textbook. (Yeah, I was that guy. Earnest to a fault, even if I was never at the top of my class.)
I studied abroad in Fortaleza, Brazil before going off to college, and I didn’t speak any Portuguese when I arrived. I made all the mistakes. About 7 months in and I was getting annoyed with how I wasn’t getting it despite having been immersed for 7 months.
Somebody made a joke about how this 4-yr-old child had better Portuguese than I did. (Ruuuuude.) But they weren’t wrong.
So I made a decision. I had 4 more months and I wasn’t going to let this defeat me. I decided to flip my mindset; what if I started to work with Portuguese instead of against it? What if we become co-conspirators? What if, instead of striving for perfect, I just settled for good?
It was a revolution. To this day, nearly 10 years later, I still speak Portuguese, I’ve improved my French, and I’ve learned Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. That decision unlocked a new world for me.
I got myself over my language hurdle, and it started with a commitment. I want to help other people make that leap, too.

Burning questions your fellow future bilinguals asked before enrolling
I’m feeling overwhelmed by all the things I’m going to need to do and execute inside this program. Are you sure I can do this?
Yes, I am! And here’s why.
Just by reading this, I know you’re a curious human being. I know you have big dreams and you’re willing to put in the time and effort to realize them. I know that you, at some level, believe you’re capable of this. You want to believe you can do it.
I also know that you’re scared. I know that you’re scared that it might not work out, that you might not have the time, and all of these fears and anxieties swell up and feel overwhelming.
But listen—I’m scared too. I’m scared all the time. But the only reason I have what you don’t is because I didn’t let being scared stop me.
So…can I ask you to do something for me? Can you pull up a chair and sit your fear down in it? And then I want you to say to it: thank you, Fear. Thanks for keeping me safe. You’re working really hard, and I appreciate you. But.
You are not going to stop me from chasing my dreams today.
(We’ll do this exercise a lot inside Fluent & Fab.)
But in practical terms, guess what? You’ll have a community. You’ll have access to a Facebook group where you can ask questions. You have the Q&A sessions with me. You have the hotseat group coaching sessions. You have the training videos. You get the bonuses. And you get lifetime access to everything. You can go through the program as many times as you need to.
There is no “behind” in Fluent & Fab. Sure, some people might progress faster than others, but it’s all a journey. It’s always a journey. You can take as much time as you need. You have lifetime access to the course.
And here’s another thing: at some point during your family’s history, somebody was bilingual. I guarantee it. Whether they emigrated or got conquered by another nation or were a merchant or fell in love with somebody from another place, you come from a long, long line of bilinguals. This is your pedigree. Who are you to think that you’re not capable of the same things as your ancestors?
I’m a total beginner and I’ve never learned a language before. What should I realistically expect to get out of this course?
This is a great question and I love your willingness to jump in with two feet. The answer is: you will be able to have fluid conversations at your level by the end of 60 days.
This means you’ll be able to speak with confidence and you’ll be able to speak with a good degree of fluidity. If you’re still a beginner—you just haven’t been at it for very long—then you’ll be at the beginner level at the end of 60 days. Maybe you’ll be intermediate. That’s okay.
Now, you might be saying—but Jake, that isn’t fluency. And you’re not wrong. There will be words you don’t know and grammar you haven’t mastered. But guess what? I’m fluent in English. And I screw stuff up all the time. Fluency is a journey.
The good news is that you get lifetime access to this program. While the live component only lasts 60 days, you have lifetime access to the training modules, to the PDF worksheets, to the Q&A recordings, to the hotseat coaching sessions, and anything else you’ll get in the course. You’ll get any updates to those materials for free.
So, at the end of 60 days, you can expect to be limited by your knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. What you WON’T be limited by is your comfort speaking and communicating, even if it’s about concepts that you don’t have the words for. You’ll have systems and habits in place to learn new vocabulary words and new grammar constructions. You’ll have the tools to continue acquiring fluency.
But if you’re just looking for a silver bullet, sorry, but this isn’t it. (And anybody who’s selling that is definitely peddling snake oil.) You gotta show up and do the work.
How can I possibly expect to be fluent in 60 days?! Fluency takes YEARS to achieve, no?
This is a great question and there are a few parts to it, so let’s address each.
Fluent & Fab in 60 Days is designed to get you conversational fluency, not grammatical perfection. That’s an important distinction.
Before you can be perfect, you have to be good. That’s what this program is designed to get you to do. Let’s get you good and comfortable, THEN worry about perfection. One of the mindset shifts you’ll make inside the program is that “fluent=perfect” is not the goal. “Fluent=fluid” is.
(And what does “fluent” really mean, anyway? Is it measured by a test? By vocabulary and grammar knowledge? By my ability to speak/listen/read/write/think/dream? You see how this is such a nebulous concept?)
The only way to get fluent in, say, French, is to first speak really bad French. There’s no way around that. Where you likely are now is that you’re struggling to speak bad French. You want to be fluent=perfect and you’re letting that desire for perfection stop you from first getting good.
I designed Fluent & Fab in 60 Days to get people out of that fluent=perfect mindset and into a fluent=fluid mindset. You’re going to speak a lot of shitty French (or whatever you’re learning) because you have to before you can become fluent. That’s a necessary step.
Nobody rides a bike without falling down a few times. You learn to tread water before you can swim. Learning a language is the same. That progression is frustrating—believe, me, I’ve done it: I know—but it’s necessary. I want this program to make it fun and easy for you.
> 60 Days?
60 days—or roughly 8 weeks—is enough to teach the basic skills and mindset shifts. At the end of these 60 days, you’ll have made the mindset shifts and learned the strategies necessary to fix your two biggest problems: your fear of speaking and your ability to stay consistent with your practice.
In Module 1, you’ll begin by learning a set of basic tools that you’ll do daily—plus one you’ll do weekly. These are designed to get you using and thinking in the language.
Then, in Module 2, you’ll work on those mindset shifts I mentioned earlier and identify some goals for the end of the course.
After that, in Module 3, you’ll learn how to find practice partners for speaking sessions, how to run a successful practice session, strategies for avoiding slipping into English (which is the #1 way we self-sabotage during speaking practice), and how to talk around words you don’t know so you’re not limited by your vocabulary.
You’ll learn habit formation in Module 4—how not to quit. This module, coupled with the basic tools from Module 1 and the mindset shifts from Module 2, will give you a very clear, easy roadmap for staying consistent with your practice.
Finally, in Module 5, you’ll have 3 weeks of projects that mimic real-life scenarios and get you speaking and using the language like you would in everyday or travel scenarios.
Plus you’re supported every step of the way with weekly Q&A sessions with me, access to our Facebook group community, and our hotseat coaching calls.
Do you see how, by speaking and engaging with the language every day, you’ll get comfortable speaking at the end of 60 days? And you’ll have the tools to (a) continue speaking, (b) stay consistent, and (c) challenge yourself to keep expanding your vocabulary and consume more foreign-language content to learn.
Now, you know this already—but you’re struggling to stay consistent. You’re running up against the resistance. This is the mindset work we’ll do in Module 2. (Which you get before the end of the risk-free guarantee period.)
> But fluency takes YEARS, doesn’t it?
Remember that fluent=fluid is the goal here. You can speak 20% of the language and get 80% of the benefits. That is much more than a passing grade.
And, for the record, the United States Foreign Service Institute says it takes anywhere from 420 – 720 hours to become fluent in a foreign language. You could study and practice for 90 minutes a day and expect to become fluent=perfect in a single year.
How much time a day should I plan to dedicate to learning?
The basic tools will take about 30-60 minutes, plus at least 1 hour per week for your cultural date. This is in addition to whatever you’re already doing to study—so if it takes you an hour in the morning to go through the basic tools and you spend 2 hours on Tuesday/Thursday evenings learning grammar, you’re looking at ~12 hours a week.
As you progress with the basic tools, expect to finish closer to 30 minutes on that daily practice.
“But I don’t have the time!” I know, I know—nobody does.
But you can make the time. Stick with me. Here are a few ways to make this work with your busy schedule:
- If you’re anything like me, you spend WAY too much on your phone. I spend an embarrassing amount of time doomscrolling through social media and it doesn’t serve it. (It just makes me anxious.) What if you reclaimed that time? What if you set a timer, or hide social media on your phone, or went on social media with clear intentions and limitations?
- At a meta-level, we’re recognizing where we waste our time. Everybody does this. The reason you’re where you are—wanting to learn a language and yet not learning a language—is because this is a crippling block for you. Maybe you rationalize that time as “brain downtime” or something of the sort. This is a method of playing small and getting in your own way. We will go over this in Module 2: Mindset.
- In Module 4, I teach habit formation. You’ll learn how to create a habit loop that consists of powerful triggers and rewards to make your practice a routine. We want to build consistency. That’s the thing you need.
Does this method work for people of all ages?
If by “all ages” you mean “adults,” then yes. (It’s actually a myth that kids learn faster than adults, or that retirement-age adults can’t learn a new language.)
If you’re asking about small children—elementary school—I genuinely don’t know. And I say that only because I’ve never taught small children!
A high schooler would be fine in this program.
What if I feel discouraged because my progress is slow?
We’ll talk about this in Module 2, the mindset module.
The daily tools will certainly bring up a lot of doubts within you—they are, in part, designed to do that. 🙂 But you know what? Slow progress is still progress! It doesn’t mean you can’t ever get where you need to go. It only means that you’re learning.
If you’re stuck speaking bad, say, Mandarin, guess what? You’re still speaking Mandarin! You’re still communicating! And you’re on the path to getting better.
Trust the process. This process has worked for me. Let it work for you, too.
What if this program doesn’t work for me?
There is no doubt in my mind that it will work. 🙂 If it doesn’t work, we need to look at your mindset and your adherence to the program.
Your real question might be a fear about whether you’re just “not good at languages.” And the answer to that is really simple.
(1) At some point in your family’s history, somebody was bilingual. They got conquered. They moved. They fell in love. They were a merchant. Today, you have access to more information and more research on language acquisition than they ever did. What is so special about you that you can’t do what they did, even with all of these advantages? There’s nothing special.
(2) Some countries have bilingual policies—Singapore, for example, requires that everyone born there speak English and one of the country’s mother tongues. Literally everybody in Singapore is a little bilingual. And in other cities—Montréal, Quito, Tijuana, Brussels, etc—as many as half the population is bilingual.
The idea that there are “language people” and “not language people” just doesn’t hold. You are a language person because you’re a person.
(We’ll dig into this in Module 2!)
I’ve tried other language programs in the past and they haven’t worked for me. What makes yours so different?
Fluent & Fab in 60 Days has a few things that differentiate it from other language programs.
First, the foundation of Fluent & Fab is the basic tools. You’ll use these tools on a daily basis. They’re designed to get you speaking, to get you thinking in the language you’re studying, and to get you to soak up new words and concepts like a sponge.
The second thing Fluent & Fab does differently is focus on mindset. While other language programs simply teach you how to speak or use a language, Fluent & Fab coaches you to confront what you believe about your own ability to learn a language and how your mindset could be hindering you (when it should be helping you).
The third thing Fluent & Fab does differently, besides teaching you how to speak with confidence, is getting you to form habits so that you actually stay consistent with your practice..
The fourth thing that makes Fluent & Fab different is the emphasis on projects and real-life applications. At the end of the course’s live component, you’ll embark on a series of projects designed to mimic immersion and build confidence not only in speaking, but also in the more complex variations thereof: explaining, teaching, and storytelling.
Finally, when you join me in Fluent & Fab in 60 Days, you’ll be supported in a lively Facebook community with weekly live Q&A sessions, group coaching hotseats, and plenty of opportunities to get help and 1:1 support. All you have to do is show up and ask.
Will I need to invest in other trainings or materials to follow along in this program?
It depends. I do my best to point you to the free resources that are already available, but sometimes supplemental materials really are helpful based on your learning style or the language you’re trying to learn. French simply has more resources available than Haitian Creole.
The good news is that once you’re inside Fluent & Fab in 60 Days, you’ll get access to the free bonus guide Let’s Select Your Language-Learning Materials, where we’ll go over exactly what I think is worth investing in, what you can get for free, and where to find them.
And if you need help or extra guidance beyond what that guide covers, you can always submit a question for the Q&A sessions inside our Facebook community.
I’m an introvert and I’m not really interested in speaking another language…but I do want to learn one. Is this course right for me?
I can’t answer this question until I know why you’re not interested in speaking another language. So can I ask you a question first?
Are you genuinely not interested in speaking…or are you trying to play small because you’re scared of speaking?
If you’re trying to learn a dead language that nobody speaks anymore like Latin or Akkadian, this is probably not the place for you. Fluent & Fab focuses on spoken conversation.
But if you’re not interested in speaking because you’re secretly scared, then can I ask you to trust me? I get that speaking another language is scary. I get that you might have had a bad experience in the past or that you’re embarrassed about the way you sound.
We WILL cover all of this in Module 2, when you learn about mindset. You get it before the refund period is over! So join me, let me know that you’re scared of speaking, and we will work together, okay? I promise.
I see that Module 5 contains a capstone project. That feels too advanced for me and really scary. Help?
Yes, Module 5 does contain a capstone project. But I want to mention a few things about it:
First, like everything in Fluent & Fab, you can scale this capstone project to fit your level. The point isn’t that everybody does the same thing. The point is that you do something challenging for your level. The capstone project is to get to to find your edge, wherever that may be.
Second, you have lifetime access to this course. That means you can take it at your own pace and you can repeat the training videos and projects as often as you need to.
Third, you have plenty of support inside the program! I will be there to help you every step of the way. We have a Facebook community. I will go live to answer your questions twice a week. We have the hotseat group coaching sessions. And you will have plenty of time to work on the capstone projects within our 60 days together.
You can do hard things. That fact that you’re reading this tells me that.
I’m already bilingual because I learned a second language in school/as a child, but I can’t seem to learn a third one now that I’m an adult. Will this program help me, or is it just for people learning a foreign language for the first time?
This program WILL work for you. How do I know that? Because it contains the tools that I use whenever I’m learning a new language…and I speak 5 languages. I’ve done these a few times!
Now, your situation might be a little unique because some of the things I teach won’t 100% apply to you, because you’re already bilingual. That’s okay!
The good news is that you will always benefit from revisiting your mindset. You will always benefit from revisiting the basic tools, from learning how to speak with confidence, from going over your goals, from learning how to build sustainable habits, and from practicing your third language with real-life projects.
The even better news? If you’re struggling with learning a third language as an adult, it’s very very likely that you have a lot of the same issues that your monolingual peers in this program have. You have the experience of speaking another language, so your brain is ahead of theirs—like, neurologically speaking, the language processing center in your brain is probably a little bigger and more active—and that’s an advantage you have. You just need to go back to basics and trust the process.
I’m working full-time and have household responsibilities. How much time per week will I need to complete this program?
You’ll need about 45-60 minutes a week to watch all of the training videos that get released Monday morning. You’ll need about 7-9 hours a week to actually implement, so your total investment in 8-10 hours in a week to learn a new language.
That said, remember that you have lifetime access to this program. While I hope you join me for as many of the 60 days as humanly possible, remember that this program will always be there for you. You have lifetime access.
So if you have to take it at a slower pace, that’s okay.
But…can I challenge you a bit?
If you make the investment and join me in Fluent & Fab in 60 Days, I want you to make the commitment to following along with the program as closely as you can. That means I want you to show up to the Q&A sessions if you can make them. I want you to participate in the hotseats. I want you to post in the Facebook community. I want you asking questions and getting into the weeds.
Because here’s the truth: learning a language takes time. There’s just no way around that. You have to put in the time and you have to put in the effort.
The good news is that, if you show up and do the work in this program, you WILL be speaking a second language. You will feel comfortable traveling abroad. You will feel comfortable using a language at work.
You might have to make the time. That might mean getting up a little earlier than you usually do. It might mean spending less leisure time on your phone and more time focusing on your language practice. It might mean you start meal prepping instead of cooking long meals.
But here’s something I do know.
People put off their dreams for years—for decades—because they “didn’t have the time.” But we all have the same number of hours in a day. You want to become bilingual? You want to speak a second language? Part of your journey might be learning how to use that time smarter.
The other thing I know? Sometimes a time concern is really just fear. Fear of the wasted time if it doesn’t work out. Fear that you’ll get behind on things you should be doing. Fear that you won’t make progress as quickly as you like and that you’ll have to spend even more time on this.
This is 100% a mindset issue. And we will go over those in Module 2, which you will get before the risk-free guarantee period is up. So join me inside the program and voice your concerns. Can you let me help you then?
When I join Fluent & Fab in 60 Days, will I get immediate access to all the lessons and modules?
You will not. I drip the content out on a weekly basis, with a few practice and support weeks thrown in to keep pace.
I do this because I don’t want to overwhelm you with all of the content all at once.
I also do this because I KNOW it’s tempting to skip through the foundational stuff at the beginning and rush right into the good stuff in the middle and the end. But guess what? That’s how you shoot yourself in the foot! You’re just cheating yourself at that point. (I’m that kind of person, too. I speak from experience.)
The good news is that, once all a module is released, you can download it right away. You have lifetime access to this program and you can go back through it once you’re done.
Here’s the schedule:
Module 1: Feb 1
Module 2: Feb 8
14-Day Guarantee Ends: Feb 14 at midnight EST
Support Week 1: Feb 15
Module 3: Feb 22
Module 4: March 1
Support Week 2: March 8
Module 5: March 15
Support Week 3: March 22
Support Week 4: March 29
Course Ends: Friday, April 2, at 5 pm EST
Will Jake be available and accessible to answer questions if I get stuck?
Yes! You will get a LOT of support in this program. Remember that you get 2 weekly Q&A sessions in the Facebook community, 3 hour-long hotseat group coaching sessions, and that you can always ask questions in our Facebook community and get support from your fellow students.

Still “thinking about it”?
You should give Fluent & Fab in 60 Days 14-day Risk-Free shot if you’re motivated by any of the following…
You’re sick of not making progress…like…
You’ve thought about giving up
Whether you’re studying another language because you want an immersive travel experience, you’re trying to connect with family members who don’t speak English, or you want any of the personal, aesthetic, or professional benefits of being bilingual, you’re fully aware that you don’t have the time to stay at the same level.
More importantly, you’d rather not spend the next ten years like a noncommittal lover, only showing up when you “have the time” and getting frustrated at your lack of progress.
You hate that this is the one thing you can’t seem to get.
That’s why you’re motivated to invest the next few weeks in learning how to speak another language with confidence, build the skills to stay consistent with your practice, and bust through your current plateau.
You’re so ready to put in the work
By now, you understand that when it comes to confidently speaking another language, the barriers to entry are low, but the life-changing potential is high. Astronomical, even.
You’re ready to show up, make a commitment, conquer your fears, and speak.
You’re not afraid of putting in the work. The thing that scares you is wasted effort. Wasting your time. Making mistakes that you didn’t need to make—and losing momentum and motivation because of that.
You know that learning from someone who’s been around the block a couple of times and speaks 5 languages is the fastest path to success.
You recognize that Fluent & Fab in 60 Days will never be this accessible again
You’d expect this kind of step-by-step system with a high level of support for nearly 5X the investment.
But by joining me as part of my inaugural class, you’re receiving the best possible deal on Fluent & Fab in 60 Days. When I offer this program again, the price WILL go up. There will be more students, so you’ll get less individual attention from me.
Along with the stack of launch bonuses, the 1:1 attention you’ll get from me, and the low price of this inaugural class offer, you’re totally unwilling to let this offer slip—and even MORE unwilling to let the countdown timer decide what these next 60 days will look like for you.
You’ve got two choices.
Either you stay as you are and keep trying to DIY your way to fluency…
…or you give Fluent & Fab in 60 Days a 14-day risk-free shot and experience a massive transformation on your language-learning journey and start speaking with confidence.
What got you here won’t get you there. It’s time to take the next step.
I personally cannot wait to guide you over these next 8 weeks.
Being bilingual and speaking another language has transformed my life.
I’ve experienced firsthand what it feels like to have the world opened up to me because I can travel and live outside the English-speaking world and speak the local language.
I’ve grown so much as a person because being bilingual has made me encounter different cultures, ideas, and ways of being. I am immensely more curious and creative than I would have been otherwise.
More than anything else, I want to share that with you. I want you to experience that transformation for yourself. The confidence that you can learn and do and be anything because you’ve mastered a foreign language.
If you’ve always wanted to speak another language, you owe it to yourself to take a risk-free plunge to see what your life on the other side could look like.
To experience firsthand the joys of speaking another language, of traveling abroad and truly experiencing another culture, of discovering a new world that was previously inaccessible to you.
Should you choose to accept my invitation, I can guarantee that the next 8 weeks will be completely life-changing for you.
I look forward to meeting you personally inside Fluent & Fab in 60 Days.
