About the author

Written by a linguist, author and polyglot who speaks 6 languages himself

Effortless conversations book

Lukas Van Vyve is a linguist, author, speaker, and the conceiver of Conversation Based Chunking™ for language learning.

He learned to speak 5 languages fluently, and discovered along the way that becoming fluent is not just about memorizing grammar rules and word lists. It’s not even about immersing yourself in the culture.

Speaking a language fluently and naturally stems from observing and deconstructing how native speakers speak— and then building a system to help you speak like them. Read the book to learn how you can start doing this yourself!
