Book excerpt: There are many reasons why you might need to learn a foreign language quickly—perhaps an unexpected business trip or a sudden travel opportunity. A. G. Hawke, a U.S. Army Green Beret, often travels to foreign countries on short notice and has been able to work intimately with officials who do not speak English. Frequently, he needs to be able to communicate in a foreign language in a matter of days or weeks. He tried all types of schools, classes, books, and tapes, but none delivered what he needed when he needed it. Subsequently, he developed his own method for learning languages. It proved so effective for him (he is certified by the military in seven languages) and his fellow Green Berets that he decided to share it with others who are struggling to learn a foreign language on the quick. The Quick and Dirty Guide to Learning Languages Fast is designed for people who have no time t for learning complicated rules of grammar. Hawke promises that his method will help anyone become functional in any language in as little as seven days and proficient in thirty days. How? Because he has trimmed that fat for you, freeing your time for what’s truly useful. Hawke provides a detailed day-by-day schedule, a hands-on workbook format, and secret tips to help you master the key elements of any new language. In true Special Forces style, this quick-and-dirty method contains no fluff; it’s all action so you can quickly get into the action yourself. If your mission is to learn a foreign language, why not learn how from the very best?
