    Is there a quick and easy way of achieving fluency in a number of different languages? Say, por ejemplo. At the moment, I have three. Turkish. Urdu and Spanish. Spanish I studied for a good eight years.

    Books or material you'd recommend? Or ways I could interact more widely with native speakers bearing in mind i'm strapped for cash and live out in the country.

    Thanks

    There's no quick and easy way of achieving fluency, unless you are a genius. And even if you are a genius, you'd still have to study hard, so it wouldn't exactly be "easy".

    Skype is often a good try, if there isn't anyone around you to talk to. But you might not have realised and have a neighbour who is Turkish, or something. Watching TV, listening to music and reading in the foreign language are good things to try, if you can do it. All4 has some good foreign series on Walter Presents, not sure if the ones in your target languages are good though.
