How I Learned 10+ Languages with the BDT

When I was a kid, I was as far from a polyglot as you could get—I only spoke Italian, my mother tongue.

When I was old enough to enter school, I took French and English. Like most people who are forced to study a language in a classroom setting, my results weren't spectacular; the classes were boring, and I never felt like I learned much.

One day, my parents hired an English tutor to come and work with me at home. This tutor taught me that language was not just some boring school subject, but rather a means to learn about and explore all sorts of interesting things, like movies, books, and—of course—people!

This began my fascination with using natural, authentic language content to learn languages. This fascination would eventually lead me to the epiphany that would help birth the Bidirectional Translation method!

One day, I decided to start learning German on my own. As much as I liked authentic content at the time, I had no idea how to start learning German that way. So, instead, I went the traditional route, and tried to learn the language the old-fashioned way, using dictionaries, and an old grammar book. Boring!

Eventually, I became so disillusioned that I nearly gave up. Fortunately, before that could happen, I stumbled upon a commercial for a German course on audiocassette which claimed to teach the language using natural, authentic dialogues, spoken by real Germans.

Eureka! This was just the kind of interesting and natural language content I needed to get started as a beginner. These dialogues represented German as it was spoken in real life, so they were infinitely more interesting than any verb tables or word lists.

As I went through the content day after day, I noticed something interesting: if I took the German dialogues and translated them into Italian, I could memorize words and phrases much more easily. Better yet, if I translated my Italian translation back into German a few days later, I ended up remembering even more!

Gradually, I found that this system of taking natural dialogues in German and translating them in two directions wasn't just helping me remember words and phrases—it was helping me think in my target language!

Following this system, I went through every single German dialogue available in my audio course. Within a year and a half of starting German, I found that I was able to have natural, comfortable, and confident conversations with German people.

At the time, I was worried this could have been a fluke. So I decided to try it again, but this time with Spanish.

So I purchased a Spanish audio course, and applied my new bidirectional translation method to it. Sure enough, I reached fluency within one year!

As the years passed, I applied the BDT to more and more languages: Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Portuguese, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Polish, Hungarian, Greek, and others.

Time and time again, the method held up. I was able to use the BDT to build a solid foundation in any language, and quickly reach fluency.

The final test of the BDT was to teach it to other people. Would it work for my coaching clients as well it had worked for me?

I'm happy to say that the answer was a resounding "YES!"

After ten years of teaching the BDT to hundreds of coaching clients, I've found that yes, the BDT does indeed work for others just as well as it worked for me. In fact, it works even better now, since I've used that decade of experience to make the method more powerful, and more flexible than ever!

Structure of the course

The course is designed to help you get a firm grasp of Luca's Bidirectional Translation method, tailor it to your own needs, and apply it to any language you wish to learn.

Here's what's included in each 11 modules (and 23 sub-modules) that you can go through at your own pace:



We will welcome you to the course, and give you everything you need to get started. We'll also give you an in-depth look at exactly how the Bidirectional Translation was born.


Learning Principles

You'll learn the five key principles which support and sustain any effective language learning method, with detailed examples to illustrate each one.


Your Language Learning Toolbox

You'll learn about the importance of starting any new language with the right resource. Then, we'll lead you through exactly how you can identify and obtain the exact resource which is right for you and your needs.


Intensive Analysis

You'll begin learning about the six key activities that comprise the Bidirectional Translation method. Module 4 starts things off by examining the Intensive Analysis, which is a powerful reading-and-listening activity you can use to gain a thorough grasp of any bilingual text, even as a complete beginner.


Phonetic Analysis

You'll discover how to perform a Phonetic Analysis, which is a sequence of activities that will help you breakdown target language speech into its phonetic elements. It is through this activity that you'll cultivate an authentic pronunciation and intonation in your target language, right from the start.


Smart Review

You'll learn a new, powerful way to review the language knowledge you've already gained. Gone are the days of boring, rote memorization. Here, in Module 6, you'll learn all about Smart Review, which will make reviewing any language material both interesting and challenging.


Direct Translation

You'll start to uncover the first key translation of the two-part bidirectional translation process. This involves the Direct Translation, which is where you'll translate target language texts into your native language. Completing this step with any text will help ensure that you've gained a full understanding of the material.


Reverse Translation (orally)

In this module, you'll begin to test your memory of what you've learned so far by completing the first of two types of Reverse Translation. Here, you'll attempt to translate your native-language version of a text back into your target language, and do it verbally.


Reverse Translation (in writing)

You'll complete the second part of the Reverse Translation, by translating your native-language version of a text back into its original language, and doing it in writing.


Create Your Routine

You'll consolidate everything you've learned so far about the six key activities of the Bidirectional Translation, and use that knowledge to develop a language learning routine that will last for the next three months.


After the BDT

In this last module, we'll cover what you should expect once you've applied the Bidirectional Translation to one language and one resource for three whole months, and what you can do to take your language learning to the next level from there.
