How to learn a new language in 8 weeks

The realisation of my own language inabilities struck me again whilst I was sitting in yet another meeting conversing via Skype with my international counterparts. My co-worker based in Barcelona was speaking fluent English (better than me in some cases) and translating to his colleague beside him in super fast Spanish during our meeting, I was already envious of his talents at this point and even more so when I found out he was Italian, so he had no less than 3 languages in his toolkit. It’s times like this I feel completely inferior and know I’m not embracing the full human experience by limiting my ability to converse in only one language.
