About

Welcome to my blog Full Time Fluency. My name is Luke Truman and I fell in love with languages when I started learning Cantonese prior to my trip to Hong Kong.

If you are like me, then you probably think you have no talent for language learning. When I was in school I was never any good at languages. Always getting frustrated and bored with countless verb tables and grammar books and having just scraped by two C's in my GCSEs for both French and German after a massive 5 years I couldn't even hold the most basic conversation!!

On this blog, I want to share how you too can any language and how despite having no obvious talent, I managed to get further in just half a year of studying Cantonese than I did after half a decade of studying at school.

I have a terrible memory, I was never any good at languages, heck I wasn't even that good at English! So how did someone like me make surprisingly good progress in such a short space of time? I strongly believe it is all down to two things; my method and the time I spent with the language.

Everyone seems to think they are too busy to learn a language or that one needs to travel to where the country the language is spoken in order to learn. My aim is to show you how you can learn any language and what you can learn with.
