    He forgot one main thing. You should begin to THINK in the language you want to learn. In the process of thinking, which is essentially talking to yourself in your head, use the language you want to learn to express your thoughts. That is very important! When you want to do small talk with somebody in the language you want to learn, think beforehand what you will say, how and why. I found that very useful. I could quickly learn the phrases I needed to but being able to improvise (which small talk actually is) is much more challenging. If you think in your native language and try to simultaneously translate to the foreign language a story, you quickly run into big trouble. That is why you have to learn to think in the foreign language. Then you can become fluent. At least these are my 2 cents...

    I always tell people who ask why I learn languages quickly to find books that they already have read, but in the language. That way even if you only pick up part of the words, you can get the drift.

    "Copy the face muscle" does the language you speak affect the way your face look? Yes

    I would add food to the equation. Be in a foreign country and get hungry. You’ll learn a lot fast.

    Define fluent. Show some skill you are talking about. Speak some Chinese instead of talking if flying and drawing.
