Former professional opera singer
Speaks 6 languages
CEO of Fluent Forever
Gabe Wyner, founder and CEO of Fluent Forever, is a best-selling author, opera singer and polyglot based in Chicago, IL.
Five years of high-school language classes taught Gabe one thing: he would never master another language. But he was determined to change his fate in a remarkable way.
Born in Los Angeles, Gabe graduated summa cum laude in 2007 from the University of Southern California with dual degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Vocal Arts Performance. After he was awarded the Renaissance Scholar’s prize for excellence in unrelated disciplines, he moved to Vienna to pursue triple Master’s degrees in Opera, Lieder, and Voice at the Konservatorium Wien, graduating with honors in 2011.
Searching for a way to bring the immersive language learning experience home with him, Gabe began to apply his analytical and engineering talents to developing a system that rapidly builds fluency with short, daily sessions – without the need for a tutor or immersion.
In 2010, his efforts paid off. Using his custom-designed system, he reached fluency in French in 5 months, followed by Russian in 10 months. This marked an astounding four total languages learned in under two years.
Following these achievements, Gabe’s book, “Fluent Forever: How to Learn Any Language Fast and Never Forget It,” became a national bestseller. The Fluent Forever app, built around his method, became a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign, raising more money in history than any other Kickstarter app at a whopping $1.7M.
Currently used by tens of thousands of people each month, the Fluent Forever app reached people in over 100 countries around the world by 2021.
Gabe can now hold comfortable conversations in Spanish, German, French, Russian, Italian, Hungarian, and Japanese. He has a dog named Norbert, who has an impressive 19,000 followers on Instagram and serves as Fluent Forever’s mascot.
