The orange groves here are bursting with blossoms and our house awash in their sweet perfume.
Merri and I are always surrounded by fresh fruit. We live in an orange grove in Florida and have an arbor of grapes and wonderful fig trees.
Our farm in North Carolina is the home of many apple trees.
Here is a shot of how one of our meadows at the farm will look in a couple of months. Not surprisingly we call this meadow “The Three Apples”.
We however limit our fruit consumption. To much fruit increases my sugar cravings. Moderating fruit may be a smart dietetic move.
An article by Doctor Mercola entitled “Surprising Health Hazards Associated with All-Fruit Diet” confirms this fact.
Here are some excerpts: Fruits are loaded with healthy antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, which is why eating them in moderation is fine for healthy people. However, many benefit by restricting their fruit intake.
Fructose, a simple sugar found in fruit, is preferentially metabolized to fat in your liver, and eating large amounts has been linked to negative metabolic and endocrine effects. So eating very large amounts – or worse, nothing but fruit – can logically increase your risk of a number of health conditions, from insulin and leptin resistance to cancer.
For example, research has shown that pancreatic tumor cells use fructose, specifically, to divide and proliferate, thus speeding up the growth and spread of the cancer.
As a general health rule, I recommend limiting your total fructose consumption to about 25 grams per day on average, and that includes fructose from fruit.
However, if you have insulin resistance, heart disease, cancer or high blood pressure, you may want to cut it down to 15 grams or less.
Kutcher Lands in Hospital After Adopting All-Fruit Diet
Actor Ashton Kutcher recently disclosed health issues brought on by following an all-fruit diet,1 adopted in preparation to play the character of Steve Jobs in the upcoming film “Jobs,” due out April 19.
Jobs had adopted an all-fruit diet in his younger days, and even the brand he co-founded – Apple – was a nod to his dietary obsession. Kutcher recently told USA Today:2
“First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues. I went to the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie. I was like doubled over in pain. My pancreas levels were completely out of whack. It was really terrifying … considering everything.”
The “everything” is likely a reference to pancreatic cancer – the disease that killed Steve Jobs on October 5, 2011, at the age of 56. Even though Jobs consumed a fruitarian diet years before he contracted his pancreatic cancer, there could be some relationship.
Why Large Amounts of Fruit May Not Be Healthy
While people are becoming increasingly aware of the connection between excessive fructose consumption and obesity and chronic disease, many forget that fruit is a source of fructose as well. Many tend to believe that as long as fruit is natural and raw they can have unlimited quantities without experiencing any adverse metabolic effects.
Eliminating processed foods and soda – which are loaded with high fructose corn syrup – and replacing it with an all-fruit diet is likely not going to improve your health.
It’s important to consider ALL sources of fructose, and to try to limit your total consumption if you want to optimize your health. Granted, fruits contain beneficial dietary fibers, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, which is why they’re an important part of a healthy diet – as long as they’re eaten in moderation. I believe most people would benefit by replacing the fruit with 50-70 percent of their calories from healthy fat. You also need moderate amounts of high quality protein.
An all-fruit diet is essentially an all-fructose diet, and this is bound to spell disaster for your health, at least long-term. Studies have shown that fructose can induce:
Should You Eliminate Fruit from Your Diet?
Short answer, no, it wouldn’t be wise to eliminate fruit entirely. Fruit is definitely a source of fructose, and one that can harm your health if you eat it in vast quantities, but eating small amounts of whole fruits is fine if you are healthy.
The Fructose Pancreatic Cancer Connection
Pancreatic cancer is one of the faster spreading cancers; only about four percent of patients can expect to survive five years after their diagnosis. Each year, about 44,000 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S., and 37,000 people die of the disease. Cancer of the pancreas has a terrible prognosis–half of all patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer die within 10 months of the diagnosis; half of those in whom it has metastasized die within six months.
Steve Jobs died of tumors originating in the endocrine glands, which are among the rarer forms of pancreatic cancer. His cancer was detected during an abdominal scan in October 2003, as Fortune magazine reported in a 2008 cover story.4 He reportedly spent nine months on “alternative therapies,” including what Fortune called “a special diet,” although there was no mention of what type of diet this might have been.
Interestingly enough, research published in 2010 suggests fructose may have a particularly significant impact on pancreatic cancer.
Insulin production is one of your pancreas’ main functions, used by your body to process blood sugar, and, in the laboratory, insulin promotes the growth of pancreatic cancer cells. However, there’s more to it than that. The research in question showed that the way the different sugars are metabolized (using different metabolic pathways) is of MAJOR consequence when it comes to feeding pancreatic cancer cells and making them proliferate. According to the authors:
“Importantly, fructose and glucose metabolism are quite different… These findings show that cancer cells can readily metabolize fructose to increase proliferation.”
Is there Such a Thing as an Ideal Diet for Everyone?
Nutritional requirements can vary wildly from one person to the next, which is why I’ve been a longtime proponent of eating in accordance with your nutritional type. For example, if you’re a protein type, fruits are generally not beneficial for you with the exception of coconut, which has a higher fat content that is beneficial for protein types. On the other hand, carbohydrate types tend to fare well with fruit and can safely consume moderate amounts. This is an important distinction, and everyone should try to eat primarily the specific fruits that are best for their unique biochemistry.
However, many find nutritional typing to be too complex. So to simplify matters, while still allowing for a fully personalized program, I recently updated and revised my Nutritional Plan. It consists of three levels, from beginners to advanced, and covers the basic requirements of a healthy diet.
Keep in mind that emerging evidence suggests your diet should be at least half healthy fat, and possibly as high as 70 percent. My personal diet is about 60-70 percent healthy fat, and both Paul Jaminet, PhD., author of Perfect Health Diet, and Dr. Ron Rosedale, M.D., an expert on treating diabetes through diet, agree that the ideal diet includes somewhere between 50-70 percent fat. It’s important to understand that your body requires saturated fats from animal and vegetable sources (such as meat, dairy, certain oils, and tropical plants like coconut) for optimal functioning.
There you have it… an apple a day might keep the Doctor away. Eating just apples may kill you. There is a lot more involved in natural good health than just eating fruit. Most likely balancing your fructose and carbohydrate intake with the correct amounts of protein and healthy fat are involved. On the subject of healthy fat lets look at Omega 3.
About Omega 3
Jim Vigue spoke at our last Super Thinking seminar. He is a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and is board certified in alternative medicine and has a Ph.D. in holistic health.
Jim is also a former USA Baseball/Major League Players Association Coach of the Year as well as an award winning author on such diverse subjects as baseball, finance and menopause. He works with many professional and non professional athletes and his baseball book spoke out against steroids long before the condemnation was popular. Jim’s most successful book has been his book on menopause (and other mid life issues women and their partners face).
Dr. Jim told us: Our research shows that people who have the highest Omega-3 Index values appear to have the slowest rates of “cellular aging.”
OMG Omega 3
Dr. Jim then outlined how Omega 3s may be doing more than just helping longevity.
He wrote: If I could only take one supplement it would be a good omega 3 product.
When we designed our product we included vitamin D, the super anti oxidant astaxanthin and a proprietary anti oxidant blend along with the krill oil and calamarine oil.
This is a very powerful combination. When you compare a solid level of omega 3s in the blood to other interventions that delay the diseases of aging omega 3s come out first all the time.
The key is getting the blood level of omega 3s at a level that helps offset many of the diseases of aging including heart disease, diabetes, cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s, arthritis and even some cancers.
The fact is that if you can get your omega 3 index around 8% you will age at less than half the rate as those with an index of around 3%. The Japanese are the longest lived people in the industrialized world because they have one of the highest omega 3 index values in the world.
“No nutrient is more important for decreasing cardiovascular death – and more lacking – than omega-3.”
Bernadine Healy, MD Cardiologist and Past President of American Heart Association – Past Director of the NIH – Past Director of the Red Cross
She concludes: “Before long, your personal Omega-3 Index just could he the new cholesterol – the number you want to brag about.” Omega-3 content in red blood cells is a strong predictor cardiovascular disease.
Low levels of Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with higher rates of:
* Heart Disease, including:
* Sudden Cardiac Death (Primary Cardiac Arrest)
* Mortality from Congestive Heart Failure
* Mortality after heart attack
*2nd Heart Attack
* 1 st Heart Attack in those with High Triglycerides/Low HDL 2nd Stroke Cellular Aging
* Depression (Major Depressive Disorder) Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease, Inflammation ,Chronic Joint Swelling, Headaches, Prostate cancer.
In the USA and European Union, the average Omega-3 Index is 4-5%.
In Japan, the average diet is high in Omega-3 and the average Omega-3 Index is 9.5%.
In the USA, sudden cardiac death rates are about 20 times HIGHER than they are in Japan.
The importance of measuring your Omega-3 Index:
In one study, the Omega-3 index was measured in 704 individuals, some were taking fish oil supplementation and some were not. Only 1% of the group not taking fish oil had an Omega-3 Index 8%.
However, in the group that was taking fish oil, only 17% had an Omega-3 Index above 8%.
83% of people in the study taking fish oil were NOT getting to goal!!!
Dr. Jim said this simple fact that many common fish oils weren’t doing the job led him to develop his own high quality product. Initially designed for athletes but really for any active person.
Dr. Jim introduced a new word at the seminar……Supertarian
A Supertarian is someone who:
1. Has a vitamin D level over 50
2. Has an omega index over 8.
3. Has a glucose level under 90
4. Has balanced hormones
He believes that anyone who can achieved this status will have a good chance of avoiding or at the bare minimum postponing the major diseases of aging.
Dr. Jim designs natural products for his own companies and others. He has one 15 year old line of supplements that he markets exclusively to doctors and clinics. He also designs and develops products for other companies. He has just introduced his new Athlete’s Best line.
He markets his omega product (which lowers PSA scores and the risk of prostate cancer) along with the strongest non prescription prostate formula on the market-which deals with all the other issues of prostate health.
He feels his omega plus formula is the number one supplement that people should be taking before anything else. It is a proprietary formula designed to offer the optimal amount of ingredients for maximum benefit. For instance, as he mentioned at our last seminar a Korean study pointed out that 2 mg of astaxanthin is more beneficial than 8 mg.(he has over 2 in his formula which he feels is the optimal amount). It is the same thing with krill oil..more is not necessarily better. Dr. Jim’s formula contains the most effective amount of krill oil.
People need to get their omega index into the 8%+ range. Regular fish oil doesn’t do it and regular fish oil has more contaminants and oxidizes quicker than what he has in his formula. Basically fish oil is obsolete and much better lipid results are achieved with Dr. Jim’s formulation according to Dr. Jim.
If someone wants to get an omega index score they can order a finger prick test to send to a lab for around $140.00 or they can order it with their regular blood work. The US average score is around 4 while the longest lived people in the industrialized world(the Japanese) have scores over 8.
If you look at the Bernadine Healy quote that sort of sums up the way we see this:
“Before long, your personal Omega-3 Index just could be the new cholesterol-the number you want to brag about.”
And more research has come out on this since her quote that shows cholesterol isn’t the culprit it has been made out to be.
The fact is that there really is nothing else better for overall health than a healthy omega index. Heart disease is one area of course where omega-3s are known to benefit. But there is also the fact that a healthy omega score slows down telomere reduction and cellular aging, limits cognitive decline and helps hold off Alzheimer’s and reduces overall inflammation levels in the body(thereby improving joint pain).
Inflammation is considered a major factor in all the diseases of aging and this product does a great job at reducing CRP (C-Reactive Protein)which is the major inflammation marker. Users of the Athlete’s Best formula have also shown increased levels of HDL (good cholesterol) and lower readings of both triglycerides and PSA scores.
You can go on the Athlete’s Best website and pick up more information on the product. A link is below.
This identical formula is being sold in gyms all over the country at much higher prices.
Dr. Jim has provided Gary Scott readers a $5 code which puts this price below even the normal price at athletesbest.com’s website.
Plus this price includes free shipping in the USA.
This brings the per bottle cost down to below $1.00 a day at $44.95 for this premium product with premium ingredients. Each bottle offers a 45 day supply of product.
A 90 day supply is $79.90 with free shipping which brings the cost per day even lower. Since it takes roughly 90 days for red blood cells to go through a complete cycle users really need to take the product(or any supplement for that matter) for at least 90 days to get the maximum benefit.
A 90 day supply is less than $.95 a day for a product that provides a superior and proprietary omega 3 formula, the Astaxanthin, the vitamin D and the anti oxidant blend.

Gain Super Thinking – Learn Spanish in Cuenca, EcuadorLearn Spanish in Cuenca, Ecuador June 2,3,4 2017.
There are seven benefits you gain beyond Spanish when you learn the techniques of Super Thinking-Learning Spanish.
Learn Spanish in Cuenca, Ecuador this June, 2017.
Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own. You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries. You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA. Spanish is the second most used language in the USA. There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined. According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US. This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all. XXXX
You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish. Yet there are seven more benefits.
An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence. The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling. It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English. Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process. The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”
The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.
#1: You become smarter
#2: You build multitasking skills
#3: You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4: Your memory improves
#5: You become more perceptive
#6: Your decision-making skills improve
#7: You improve your English
This is why I invite you to visit Ecuador and learn how to use Super Thinking as you learn Spanish in three days.
Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days? Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the traditional way.
However, there is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun. This course works because it is education without stress!
This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov. who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.
Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s. She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for four decades.
Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and applied them to teach Spanish in three days.
The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system. You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created. If this is not proof enough, I have provided links so you can read dozens more raves. If this still is not proof enough, I’ll be happy to provide phone numbers so you can talk to those who have learned to speak Spanish in three days.
One delegate who attended a Super Thinking + Spanish course taught by two of the Super Spanish teachers that Merri and I trained (Shawn and Suzanne Bandick) wrote:
Here are a few quotes from other delegates of courses conducted by our Super Spanish teachers.
One delegate from St. Louis wrote about his courses with Super Spanish teacher, Mark Frakes: Hi Gary, Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week,and I’m on to a new career. What is my new career? Still formulating,but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons. Mark was a very capable leader and teacher and his choice of a pronunciation coach was well received.
Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be. We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning. I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October. Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.
Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning. Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off. You did,and I look forward to other courses that you offer,and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially. Thanks to Mark, who you chose well to represent your program. Best regards, Denis Molloy.
Another wrote about Super Spanish teacher, Glenn Sterling’s course: Buenos Dias, Gary y Glenn, Here is a testimonial for Super Thinking Super Spanish. Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course. In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling. Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish Super Learning. I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.
The course was taught in English by Dr. Glenn Sterling, a witty, engaging, retired chiropractor, and Alberto, his Ecuadorian side kick, who made sure we learned to pronounce everything correctly. After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!
Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador. The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Thinking Super Spanish. And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.
Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.
I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course. One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Learning is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.
During the course of the day and night, humans experience four types of brain waves: alpha, beta, delta, and theta. It turns out we learn best in alpha state. Research has shown that alpha state can be induced by meditation, listening to Baroque music (or any music that has about 60 beats per minute) and by taking a theanine (the active ingredient in green tea) supplement.
Getting into alpha involves slowing down and relaxing. So, the class includes baroque music and guided journeys to support relaxation. Imagine learning while relaxing and having fun. That’s not how I remember school!
The brutal truth: In recent years, I’ve rarely relaxed. (No wonder I have high blood pressure!) and, suddenly, I’m aware of it. Why?
1. Since early April, I’ve been living in a small town in a country with a slower pace of life and I’ve been affected by it. Positively, I’d say.
2. In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org). What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life. Rob Christi. Cotacachi, Ecuador
Another attendee from a course wrote: “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.
“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it. It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.
“I liked how simple it made speaking Spanish. Shawn and Suzanne are amazing teachers. They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this course. Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you. This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.
“The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning. The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price. The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless. Muchas, muchas gracias.”
“I loved the relaxed environment. I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary. I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better! Muchas Gracias! I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word! Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”
“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning. Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”
“I liked the laid back yet professional approach. I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish, I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.
“It was a very enjoyable class.”
How this Course Works in Just Three Days.
A Livescience.com article helps explain why this course works and how delegates are creating Spanish sentences by the first lunch break and can communicate well in Spanish after just three days. This article by Jeremy Hsu, LiveScience Senior Writer, is entitled “CIA Seeks Anyone, Anyone Who Can Speak 2 Languages.”
Four important points in the article are shown in excerpts below with my comments to show what has been wrong with traditional Spanish courses and why the Super Thinking tactic is perfect for this program.
The article begins: WASHINGTON, D.C. — Many Americans don’t learn a second or a third language from birth, let alone a language that the CIA or U.S. Foreign Service might want. The situation has forced U.S. government agencies to learn how to cultivate the most talented second-language speakers from among college students with little to no other-language expertise.
“In U.S. education, we don’t develop early bilinguals,” said Catherine Doughty, a language expert at the University of Maryland.
Doughty spoke as part of a panel during the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference in Washington, D.C.
She and other speakers described the typical U.S. second-language program as being a series of disjointed classes where students often repeated what they had learned before.
“Imagine math [programs] where the middle school says, ‘We don’t have any idea about what you studied,’ so you learn it again. It’s the same with high school,” said Robert O. Slater, director of the U.S. National Security Education Program.
MY COMMENT. This is why traditional Spanish courses often do not work. They create two obstacles up front…conjugation and memorization of vocabulary. Super Thinking + Spanish avoids both these obstacles.
The article continues: Finding the best. Government agencies aren’t alone in trying to recruit multilingual speakers; U.S. corporations covet such skills for doing business in the era of globalization.
MY COMMENT: This is why speaking Spanish adds value to each of us as a person. We become especially useful in an increasingly global multilingual society.
The article explained how Doughty and her colleagues used tests to train up cognitive processes related to language learning, such as the ability to hold information in the brain while using it for learning. The tests sought to predict those who can succeed despite everything stacked against them.
The article reviewed changes in the brain. Lee Osterhout is a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of Washington in Seattle. His lab used electrodes placed on the scalp to measure the electrical activity created by the signals of brain cells. That allowed the researchers to see differences in the brain patterns among language learners and fluent speakers. They found some surprising results:
The article pointed out: Repeated studies of French language students showed that their brains responded differently to real French words compared with fake words after just two weeks of classes, even if the students themselves could not tell such words apart.
“From knowing nothing to a little bit, [there are] huge changes in the brain,” Osterhout pointed out. “[From] knowing a little to knowing a lot, [it is] much more subtle.”
MY COMMENT: This is why Super Thinking + Spanish works. The three day course focus is entirely on making the huge change and ignores the subtle. From there the perfection and subtle change. The three day course prepares the learner to speak Spanish immediately and then make the subtle changes in their day to day life.
The article also said: Another surprise came from studies of Spanish-speaking immigrants, because neither age nor language proficiency seemed to predict how quickly the immigrants picked up English. Instead, the fastest learners showed both the greatest motivation to learn and a willingness to use English at every opportunity despite being bad at it (at first).
MY COMMENT: This is the other reason why Super Thinking plus Spanish works. This three day course gets the delegates speaking and thinking Spanish all the time so they can use and/or think Spanish every day… and communicating even from the beginning. In this way, the education grows even when Spanish is not being spoken.
The Super Thinking course first integrates the brain. Students learn better with relaxed concentration. Then the course teaches them 17 simple lessons so they know 4005 words in Spanish and can use them to create sentences. In this way, you can communicate in just three days.
The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process. At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov. Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov when he visited the USA.
The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time. Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.
Here is the proof.
“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”
There you have it. How long did it take you to read the sentence? You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.
See examples of the words you already know below.
How long would have taken you to memorize all those words? How soon would you have forgotten them?
This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.
The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.
Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.
The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds). This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.
Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.
Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.
By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.
Plus the system is Impro Dynamic. This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.
I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador. The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became. My second language was automatically improving. The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them. The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls. When your mind creates something… it owns it! You do not have to remember .
During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .
You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.
Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.
When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised . You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.
Learn Spanish in Cuenca, Ecuador. Super Spanish teacher, Rick Brown, will be teaching a Super Thinking + Spanish course in Cuenca, Ecuador June 2, 3, 4 2017.
Rick Brown Super Thinking plus Spanish teacher, lives in Cuenca, Ecuador and Toronto, Ontario.

Cuenca Inn Courtyard.
I recently visited Bill Dixon at his Cuenca Inn B&B located at Don Bosco and Santa Maria Streets in Cuenca, Ecuador. This is Bill’s third project in Cuenca and shows what a beautiful creation he can make.
The Inn itself is in a large home well back from the road. It has four good sized guest rooms, two with bathroom en suite and TVs.
There is a wonderful large central covered courtyard with TV, a central fire pit and lots of plants.
TV room for guests.
A guest living room with TV and big comfortable sofas adjoin the courtyard.
There is also a small bar area just off the courtyard that we all enjoyed. The Inn is very well appointed and the ambiance is warm and conducive to the comforts of a home away from home. Internet/WIFI is good and is available to guests for long distance calling, along with pyre-loaded local cell phones.
Cuenca Inn Dining Room.
At the same time I was visiting Bill, Neil and Inge (another retired couple) were there as well. We all enjoyed a great meal and hobnobbed about the state of affairs in North America for about three or four hours while enjoying a couple of bottles of wine.
Cuenca Inn bar.
The Inn has a reasonably sized, fully equipped kitchen where breakfast is prepared. Bill created a superb dinner for us all including South African style BBQ Grilled Chicken with a very tasty vegetable casserole Au Gratin and an appetizer of his own design. We had somewhat of an argument trying to name. It consisted of layers of corn chips, peppers, cheese, chilies, some secret ingredients and was served with a wonderfully flavored home made red pepper jelly. We finally settled on Bill’s Deep Dish Corn Chip Pizza as a name for it. It was sweet and spicy, crispy and very well balanced, well received by all, as was the rest of the food.
Cuenca Inn Kitchen.
As I said previously we sat around the fire pit enjoying the conversation and the wine until well past 11 PM. No one really wanted to leave but Bill had engagements in the morning and eventually we had to call it a day. Since the Inn is at a fairly major cross street we had no trouble hailing a taxi back to Ordonez Lasso where it turned out Neil, Inge and I all lived.
Bill and I had originally met in Oshawa when he attended our Super Thinking / Super Spanish course prior to coming to Cuenca. He indicated that it had been a really good investment on his part as he had acquired the language basics he needed, and it gave him the confidence to make the change in his location and his life.
He actually attended the Super thinking / Super Spanish course twice about 3 months apart. He says he was amazed at how much of the first course he remembered on the second time around. He really threw his all into the course and got a lot out of both sessions.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”. The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.
This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language. It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias! It was a great experience.

First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!! I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class. And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!! I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.
And a few days after that …. As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish. At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding. I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind. And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence? I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced! Thanks a million again. This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!
If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it! By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken. It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter. You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned. Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”
Gary noted: “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants. It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere. The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable. It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”
Twila said: “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning. The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing. I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply. Starting with conversation is way more fun. How quickly you can learn! It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.
The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task. The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning. We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”
Brigitte sent this: “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias! I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons. I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it. I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends. Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”
Marie wrote: “I would highly recommend this course. The amount covered in 3 days is amazing! All with no stress. The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish. I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”
