???? Immersion is the key to getting fluent, and foreign language TV is one of the best ways to immerse yourself right at home. But there's just one problem. Many of the best TV sites and shows are blocked if you’re abroad! Fortunately, there is a quick and easy way to transport yourself—or at least your phone or computer—without ever getting on a plane: using a VPN (virtual private network).

And right now, you can get 73% off NordVPN (the VPN I use) when you sign up for their 2-year plan. In addition to nearly ¾ off your NordVPN membership, you'll also get 1 additional month free!

THE FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION:

???????? ???? ???? Each year, thousands of men from all over the world join the French Foreign Legion (Légion étrangère). Most come for adventure. Some for a better life. Many to earn a French passport. But they ALL have one thing in common: they have to get fluent in French in a hurry. So how do they learn so fast? And what can we non-Légionnaires learn from their method? These are precisely the questions I answer in this video.
