Brain Waves Assist Free Flow of Thought


Integrating brain waves so we absorb, retain and recall information better helps us succeed.

scinetific american

Here are details about brain waves from a Scientific American article “What is the Function of the Brainwaves?” (1) by  Ned Herrmann an educator who has developed models of brain activity and integrated them into teaching and management training.   Herrmann headed management education at General Electric, where he developed many of his ideas. Here is his explanation.

It is well known that the brain is an electrochemical organ; researchers have speculated that a fully functioning brain can generate as much as 10 watts of electrical power.  Other more conservative investigators calculate that if all 10 billion interconnected nerve cells discharged at one time that a single electrode placed on the human scalp would record something like five millionths to 50 millionths of a volt.

There are four categories of these brainwaves, ranging from the most activity to the least activity.  When the brain is aroused and actively engaged in mental activities, it generates beta waves.

The next brainwave category in order of frequency is alpha.  A person who has completed a task and sits down to rest is often in an alpha state.  A person who takes time out to reflect or meditate is usually in an alpha state. A person who takes a break from a conference and walks in the garden is often in an alpha state.

The next state, theta brainwaves, are typically of even greater amplitude and slower frequency.  A person who has taken time off from a task and begins to daydream is often in a theta brainwave state.   Individuals who do a lot of freeway driving often get good ideas during those periods when they are in theta and discovers that they can’t recall the last five miles–induced by the process of freeway driving.   The repetitious nature of that form of driving compared to a country road would differentiate a theta state and a beta state in order to perform the driving task safely.

It is a state where tasks become so automatic that you can mentally disengage from them.  The ideation that can take place during the theta state is often free flow and occurs without censorship or guilt.  It is typically a very positive mental state.

When we allow the different waves to interconnect freely we gain unimaginable intellect.

Our mental and physical being improve.  This is why I believe our “Super Spanish” course works is the most important we conduct.  This course is based on the power of silence and music.  This course is based on the fact that silence and music supercharge and connect your mind, body and soul. The knowledge and experience gained in that course about silence, smart music and super nutrition allows delegates to enhance productivity and creativity.

The concepts gained show delegates how to create their own program of greater wisdom and help them build new skills at work in study and play. One benefit is that delegates gain tools to quickly become fluent in Spanish…yet as this former delegate wrote, they learn much more.

“Hi Gary & Merri, You two are the BEST!!! Your seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized my expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Well, as you can see prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!” Suzy Kurinsky

Gain from the Foundation of Intelligence


I am often asked about our Super Thinking + Spanish course, “Can I learn Spanish in just three days – Really?”

Here is a ten minute video that explains why it is possible to pick up Spanish so quickly.

Gary-scott-super-spanish

See how the answer to this question can enhance your ability in thinking, investing and business… even improving your health.

I thought long and hard before making the bold statement that you can learn to communicate in Spanish in such a short time.  Again and again… we get readers who have attended the course confirming that this is true.

There are three foundations to our Super Thinking system of learning Spanish.  They make Super Thinking completely different from any other Spanish system.  This is why it works so well.

#1: We learn how to stay in the infinitive so our system avoids all conjugation… the task that stops most English speakers from every getting started.  And yet, the sentence structure is correct and the meaning is correct and the understanding by the listening correct.

#2: There are 4005 Spanish and English words that are the same.  Our course provides 17 simple lessons that unlocks all these words and provides an instant vocabulary with no memorization required.

#3: The third foundation of learning is frequency modulation (FM).  Which is the focus of this post. FM uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  This brings forth a mental physical state called relaxed concentration or better known as… being in the zone.

FM works by focusing on the learner… rather than the data.  We all have enough data.  FM “grows the learner” rather than just expands the information.  The explosion of data we must all process everyday means there is too much information to process already.  Let’s view this learning in terms of plumbing to outline what “Growing the Learner”  means.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is to first create a six inch pipe and then an even larger pipe…a never ending expansion of abilities!

When we allow all the brain waves to interconnect freely we gain access to unimaginable intellect.

Our mental and physical beings improve.  This is why delegates who attend our Super  Spanish courses feel so much better and discover that the course is much more than just learning Spanish. They discover they can apply the tactics learned in so many ways.

This course is based on the power of silence and music.  Super Thinking recognizes that silence and music supercharge can connect your mind, body and soul. The knowledge and experience gained in that course about silence, smart music and super nutrition allows delegates to enhance productivity and creativity.

The concepts gained show delegates how to create their own program of greater wisdom and help them build new skills at work in study and play. Quickly becoming fluent in Spanish is just one benefit.

One way to reach this state of relaxed concentration… listen to Largo music.

When I am stressed or pushed on a deadline… I click this on and let it play quietly in the background as I work.

bach

A good example is Bach’s – Double Violin Concerto in D minor 2nd movement, Largo‬ at Youtube.

I hope listening to this music helps you gain relaxed concentration!

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The Learn Spanish in three day course is now available online.

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

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.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are 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

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

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. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then 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.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  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.

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, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, 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.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

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 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 Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  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.

“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 The Course Works

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.

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.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   This is available at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

The course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  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.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning 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.”

Empowering With Profit


Empowering with profit is a great purpose.

super-thinking-spanish-mexico tags:2012-5-11

Earning income teaching Super Thinking at home in Playa del Carmen.

Having a purpose created micro business enhances the chances of income longevity and is especially satisfying when it empowers others in the process.

With this thought in mind we started our Super Thinking + Spanish teacher program last year and began training our first dozen teachers.  This year after 12 months of  training they began to set up their own courses and teach.

We are using the stories of success (and failure) in our online continuing education course “Eventful Business – How to Have a Seminar Business”  Here is an excerpt from a recent lesson.

Shawn and Suzanne Bandick taught their first course in Mexico last month.

In 2001 Suzanne and Shawn set out on a quest for adventure and a change of culture. They packed up their two kids, and moved from British Columbia, Canada to Mexico. Their  children, now young adults and in search of their own adventure and careers have moved back to Canada but Shawn and Suzanne keep their home base in Puerto Aventuras on the Caribbean coast of Mexico just south of Cancun.

In Canada, they built and trained sales and marketing teams for companies.  They traveled extensively for business and with their children for pleasure. Then came the question, “Why do we work so hard just so we can go travel? Why don’t we just go and live abroad?”  Two years later they liquidated down to what would fit in their Toyota 4 runner and headed south.

Once in Mexico, Shawn opened a real estate office which was another fun adventure making tons of new friends and helping them live their dreams.  Suzanne became a writer and a life coach.

They first learned of Super Thinking + Spanish as students and here is their personal testimonial for Super Thinking + Spanish.

“This Spanish course has opened up a whole new world of pleasure and ease in communicating for us. We spent ten years in Mexico struggling to learn Spanish feeling overwhelmed and inadequate in the memorization of the hundreds of verbs and the many conjugations of them that all our tutors told us we needed to do. This course changed everything for us. We are thrilled to now be in a space that speaking in Spanish flows for us! We became teachers because of a desire to empower others and hopefully help them avoid the struggle we went through. This method of teaching definitely empowers people! Imagine learning to speak a new language with ease and joy!”

What do they love about Mexico?

They love the people, the diversity of the culture, the climate, the history hidden in many of the old cities and the warm sand and palm trees.

Their motto is “Live the Adventure” and invite others to their Super Thinking + Super Spanish class.

Here is a report of their first course.

The Beginning

super-thinking-spanish-mexico tags:2012-5-11

Because we ran into such huge price resistance with the people who were left here at this time and we really wanted to teach a class – we priced it at a special one time introductory locals price.

Everyone was given the same price.

At this time we have four couples and one single registered and paid for a total of nine people.

Two couples paid US dollars to us through Paypal and the rest paid in person in the equivalent in pesos.

It’s great because now we have pre met everyone who will be attending. Everyone is thrilled and grateful for the price and will be walking talking local testimonials for us.

We have no cost for a room as we are holding it in our condo. Even with the purchase of an easel and paper and copies and our Spanish native speaker we will have a nice profit.

Which we are very happy with for a first effort in slow season. Also, we have built up interest for the fall for all that are unable to take it now as they are no longer in town.

After Day One

Wow! Wow! Wow! How happy we are. How rewarding. All 9 students showed up on time, ready and excited. They were all fully participating. Our pronunciation coach is outstanding … and it turns out a neat printer. He worked with us like we have been working together for years. He has perfect clear, concise pronunciation.

Our condo set up great for the class. The day was perfect we had sun on the ocean in the background.

Everyone left day one seeming pretty empowered. Oh and one fellow (who has only been here about 4 months) had his pronunciation change from really bad and struggling at the beginning of the day to showing a really remarkable improvement by the end.

How cool is that?

Feeling good about tomorrow. Thanks again for this great opportunity. Were your ears ringing? We talked about you a lot to the class.

Your proud teachers in Mexico.

Day Two

This was just posted by a student on FaceBook after Day Two

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

Super Thinking Spanish maestros Shawn and Suzanne Marie Bandick are the best!

Yea! Estamos feliz! How exciting is this? We love empowering people!

Just wanted to share so you know that your teachings keep on giving.

Day Three

Students brought me flowers!

super-thinking-spanish-mexico tags:2012-5-11

Our Spanish speaker was smiling all the time and told us he was very happy to be a part of something so empowering and fun.

He could see the lack of stress on peoples faces and at the end told us he was amazed we found a way to teach such long days without people being bored.

Boy they were really into the relaxation!

super-thinking-spanish-mexico tags:2012-5-11

Here is our whole class …

super-thinking-spanish-mexico tags:2012-5-11

Most everyone took our questionnaires home to email them back to us … I’ll let you know when we know … but I expect good reviews. We could not be more pleased.

I also can’t say enough of how well it turned out that we decided to hold this class in our condo.

We’ll be planning more courses … we are hooked.

Summary

Super Thinking + Spanish Class – Case study – Shawn and Suzanne Bandick
Mexico Class – April 26, 27,28, 2012

A slight challenge this time of year in Mexico is most of the foreigners that live here part time have gone home. We knew that when we set the date but we really wanted a class under our belts and to make some money.

We also held the class Thurs/Friday/Sat as we ran into several people who were hesitant to come because Sunday is a church day.

By altering the date by one day we got two more couples to commit.

Everyone prepaid even if it meant we met them for a coffee.

Everyone was thrilled and grateful for the price and now will be walking talking local testimonials for us.

Costs:  We had no cost for a room as we held it in our condo. This worked very well with the addition of some folding tables we had or borrowed placed behind existing couches.

We provided tea, coffee (we had attendees make it as we do not drink coffee) water and snacks (granola bars, oranges, bananas, and some squares I baked) for break time and they went out for lunch.

Our condo actually provided a very personal and relaxed atmosphere. We believe this worked in our favor.

We are very happy with this for a first effort in slow season. Also, we have built up interest for the fall for all that are unable to take it now as they are no longer in town.

What do we get from networking?

We get possible students and definitely new friends. This has turned out to be a very rewarding exercise indeed.

We have a book recommendation: Yes Man by: Danny Wallace … it is the story of a man who decides to say yes to everything. It reminds me of the opportunities we created by getting out and networking.

We have one class planned right now for Canada this summer but are working on possibly two more for while we are there simply by networking with friends and acquaintances.

We also have one more class planned for Mexico in November but have let everyone know if they can pull a group together we will consider a class at any time. We collect names all the time.

After experiencing the full rewards of teaching one class – you bet we want to do more. So many people need this! We are empowering people.

END OF EXCERPT

Super Thinking + Spanish empowers people… makes them smarter and often healthier as they learn Spanish too.  This is a good way to profit and have an excellent micro business.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  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.

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, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, 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.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

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 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 Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  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.

“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 The Course Works

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.

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.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   This is available at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

The course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  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.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning 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.”

How to Get Away With Murder & Earn… Sometimes a Lot


Online Writers and Publishers Course  “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher”

Learn how some writers are getting away with murder as they earn fortunes and gain much much more.

hunger-games-images tags:

The Hunger Games is a book about murder…meant for teens… that captured the national psyche and has been on the top 100 paid Kindle books for 710 days!    See below why the national psyche can mean even more than incredible wealth.

Writing and Epublishing bring profits and more.

Profits can be kindled with this question… which would you rather have… 12% of $10 or 70% of $3?

The math to this question brings an obvious answer and creates a business opportunity… plus something rather more.

kindle

Merri and I have loved our Kindles since they day they became available. Now you’ll see why we love them even more and how that passion can create profit and opportunity for you!

Plus you don’t even have to own a Kindle to take advantage of these profits and opportunities!

Growing numbers of “indies” (short for independent) writers are using Kindle to sell their publications.

There is a great story about a 26 year old who is cutting out BIG publishers by publishing direct to the  Kindle.

She is writing vampire stories and is one of the top selling “indie” writers on the Kindle store.

This means she does not have a publishing deal. This allows her to keep 70% of her book sales.  According to one article I read she is selling up to 100,000 electronic books a month.

That is impressive when you consider that  it only takes a few tens of thousands of book sales at launch to get on the New York Times bestselling list.

The heck with lists! How about just writing and publishing?  Her formula is to lower her sales price to between $.99 to $3.00.  This compares to the typically $9.99 to $12.99 for other books on Kindle.

The lower price increases volume…. plus this cuts out a publisher, distributor and book store who normally absorb up to 88% of the income created by a book.

There are no printing costs, no shelf space, no inventory, no postal delivery.  Most of the publishing expenses are eliminated.

The writer keeps 70%.

Amazon keeps 30%.

A typical writer earning 12% of the book sales makes about $1.20 per $9.99 book sale.  A Kindle writer makes $2.10 on a $3 sale.

Previously one of the best selling Kindle writers was J.A. Konrath, but it was assumed he was popular because he previously had a publishing deal and so already had notoriety. That’s not the case with this girl (her name is Angela Hocking), who published stories on her blog before turning to Kindle. In fact, out of the top 25 best-selling indie Kindle writers, only 6 were previously affiliated with a publishing house.

If the story of 26 year Angela Hocking is true… a 100,000 sales at $2 average brings in $200,000 a month and her earnings are $140,000 a month.

That is a great income.

Not every writer will do that well.  Most of us don’t need to!

This is a new exciting era for writers.  Not so good for publishers who do not adapt.

However like small bookstores, small publishers have extra  opportunity now.

Smart… publishers who use this technology gain the following benefits.

* Printing, shipping and disposal (of unsold books) costs eliminated.

* Shelf space unlimited and almost free with no capital costs.

* There is increased sales volume. Kindle owners buy more books than print readers and will spend weekly to get new chapters rather than entire books.

There are three keys to success in this type of writing and publishing.  We have repeatedly stressed them at our websites and in our business courses.  Focus…. focus…. focus.

Buyers of books fall into niches.

Those who succeed are those who focus on a niche and create trust with those readers.

Take Merri’s and my publishing business as an example. Our readers know that the site content is about leading edge ideas related to fighting inflation, global investing, having micro businesses and being free to live anywhere.

These websites create a community of like minded souls around this niche.

Once a writer has become branded and has a list of readers,  it is easy to expand by adding authors and related topics, and editing the books of other authors, knowing that they can help them sell their books.

Some amazing websites and businesses will be built and Kindle will be the search engine… the jumping off point is finding the original readers who will become the core of your list!

Merri and I have 44 years publishing experience, translated into 14 years of hands on online publishing that we are expanding and adding into Kindle.

However there is something more… tapping into the National psyche.   If you know what you are doing and if you understand how to find your niche… sometimes something wonderful happens. I made millions of dollars once just accidentally falling into the national psyche.  I explain how to tap onto the National Psyche in my Writers and Publishers Course entitled Self Fulfilled – How to be a Writer and Self Publisher”.

What is the National Psyche? Let me share just three book titles and you’ll understand.  “Harry Potter” – “The Da Vinci Code” –  “Murder Games”.

These are three books that all tapped into the National Psyche… big time.  Harry Potter… meant to be a children’s book helped turn J.K. Rowling into a billionaire. She has since given away a lot of her fortune — reportedly $160 million of it — to charity.  I do not think that socially minded Rowling, who once lived on welfare, cares about her standing on the billionaires list.  But it is great knowing that an author of imaginative, timeless, honest-to-goodness books who taps into the national psyche can become a billionaire.

Another superb example is Suzanne Collins who has written the three Hunger Games books… meant to be for teens.  However a quick look at the top six best paid Kindle books at Amazon.com shows that all three are in the top six.

The Hunger Games trilogy is a young-adult adventure science fiction series. The trilogy consists of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay.  The first two books were each The New York Times best sellers, and the third book, Mockingjay, topped all US bestseller lists upon its release.   By the time the movie, The Hunger Games, was released the publisher reported 26 million Hunger Games trilogy books in print.

Yet these books are only numbers four five and six top sellers because of  another  writer, E.L. James who has written ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ which is now #1 just about everyone’s  Best-Selling Books list.

An article by Deirdre Donahue for USA TODAY says:  E.L. James’ erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey — the book everybody in America seems to be talking about — has reached the top spot on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling Books list, dominating even Suzanne Collins. The other two books in James’ trilogy are also in the top 10.

Available in paperback as well as e-books, the series has sold 2 million copies so far in April, according to publisher Vintage. Meanwhile, the British author — who was just named one of Time’s 100 most influential people — begins her U.S. book tour Sunday.

Imagine this.  Six months ago E.L. James was successful but today is considered by Times Magazine one of the 100 most influential people in the world!

When you hit the national psyche you earn a fortune yes… but also can leave your imprint on the world.

This is why I want to make a special offer to you.

Because we  have been taking advantage of electronic publishing for almost a decade and a half so we  have a great head start on how to build niches  and how to shoot for the national psyche.  I want to share what I learn in my never ending process of learning as a writer and publisher with you.

Technology especially favors small publishers today. Portable computers, the internet, wireless access, on demand printing smart phones and electronic readers all create enormous new potential for small publishers.

Let me share an example created by the recent nuclear events in Japan.  Merri and I had unfortunately been near Chernobyl when it melted down. We suffered from radiation exposure and have been in the past two decades learning how to cure ourselves.  We know numerous ways to help readers protect against excessive radiation.

The day of the nuclear event I spent the entire day writing and by the second day of Japan’s disaster had already published the report  “7 Steps to Protect Against Radiation Poisoning”.   My publication was the first to help in the this way and was available on Kindle just one day after the nuclear disaster. No big publisher could close to even thinking up a publication… much less publishing a valid report that fast.  I have since pulled this report from Amazon.com (you’ll want to take my course to know an important reason why).

During the financial crisis we added the second report “Cash in Crash – Brazil” a Kindle publication on economics and about the US dollar’s fall.

This is why I am making a special offer for our self publishing course.

The last few years have seen the evaporation of many dreams. The global recession… rising gas prices…  massive home foreclosures… a weakened, falling US dollar and rising unemployment wiped out many hopes, ambitions and plans.  Then came turmoil in the Middle East, a Tsunami in Japan, floods and tornadoes in the heartland of America.

Nobody knows what impact the extra warm winter of 2112 might bring.  Plus there are enormous flashpoints in Iran, North Korea…. all of Europe to name a few of many.

Who knows what could come next.   A double dip recessions, stagflation… massive job layoffs… more federal, state, county and city debt and government burdens on our lives. Demolished Medicare and health benefits. Rampant inflation.

Despite these disasters and the risk of more, one exclusive group of small businesses have prospered. They will continue to do so, regardless of the unexpected, abroad or at home.

In fact these businesses will do even better… gain higher respect and earn more profit as they help ease disasters… because these business are small publishers who can help their readers deal with global and local problems as they unfold.

Small self publishers are in a win – win situation for many reasons.

The massive expansion of information is overwhelming the world. There is so much new data coming in that the public cannot keep pace.   This forces us all  to be more discriminating… which is the worst thing that can happen to big publishers who rely on broadband where its best to send one message to huge groups.

The huge inflow of new knowledge favors broadband which works best sending many different messages to much smaller groups.

Self publishers have also gained an advantage as most of the big booksellers are going broke or in a slump. Barnes & Noble has had enormous challenges as does Books-A-Million the only major book store chains left.   Borders went bankrupt.  All 798 B. Dalton mall outlet bookstores closed.  The Waldenbook units are gone.  This vacuum creates a special opportunity for small self publishers.

This is why you should see three case studies below to help you be free, secure and fulfilled as a Self Publisher.

After these stories see how to get the second course worth $299 plus three additional bonuses when you enroll in our course “Self -Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher” on how to develop your own specific publishing business that can bring you  everlasting wealth.

Here are the three stories that show how the rise of the small self publisher began.   This knowledge can bring you secure income for the rest of your life. More importantly these stories can help you be happy and fulfilled and safe in this ever changing world.   With these case studies you help make the world a better place… in a small way perhaps… but better as you gain everlasting wealth.

Let’s share how to create a fortune  in a rewarding career.

The first of these three stories contains the seeds of prosperity, richness, freedom and satisfaction for you.

The story begins with an excerpt from the December 16, 2010 Economist Article entitled “Rise of the image men” begins: (bolds are mine) that says:  As they prepared to face their second big strike in four years, America’s coal-mining bosses knew they had to do something about the newspapers. It was 1906—a time of rising resentment against robber-baron capitalism and the heyday of muckraking “yellow journalism”. During the previous strike the trade unions had fostered good relations with newspapermen and won themselves a sympathetic press. To help put their side of the story, the mining bosses turned to a former journalist, Ivy Lee.   Lee was to pioneer new methods—and, in the process, create a new industry.

Lee observed that the rise of national newspaper chains and syndicated journalism in America since the 1880s, combined with the extension of the franchise, had profoundly changed society. Now, for the first time, there was something that could accurately be called “public opinion”, a shared consciousness and conversation across the country—and it was to be feared. Lee noted how the emerging mass media were acting as the conduit for the anti-capitalist message of Progressivism, the liberalising reform movement that peaked in America in the early 20th century. He realized not only that it was essential for businesses to counter this message, but that the same conduit could be used to spread pro-business sentiment.

His idea, blindingly obvious now but a novelty then, was to send news desks a stream of statements putting the mining bosses’ case and rebutting allegations against them.

The seeds in this story, are rich with potential for your prosperity and are so simple. Lee observed that the rise of national newspaper chains and syndicated journalism in America since the 1880s, combined with the extension of the franchise, had profoundly changed society. Now, for the first time, there was something that could accurately be called “public opinion”, a shared consciousness and conversation across the country—and it was to be feared.  This is obvious now but was a novelty then.

The real seed is that a coincidence of many technologies changed the world (in the form of the newspaper)… at the turn of the 20th century. One technology was the ability to make newsprint… the paper of newspapers.  Paper was two thousand years old, but cheap newsprint, paper from wood pulp, did not come along until 1838 when Charles Fenerty of Halifax made the first newsprint while helping a local paper mill maintain an adequate supply of rags to make paper.  He succeeded in making paper from the wood pulp itself.

Plus technologies in transportation and communication then allowed… everyone, reporters to paperboys, to create public opinion through the power of the word.

This leads us to the second story that tells of another global transformation from broadcast to broad band… from large publishing to Self Publishing and how you can have so many good things you desire… freedom… material wealth…adventure… security… fulfillment… friendships…. status and fun as a Self Publisher.

Perhaps what Merri and I are most proud of this second story because it tells the tale of a student who used our publishing course “Self Fulfilled How to be a Self Publisher” to build a career.

David Cross was a meditation teacher in Edinburgh, Scotland who taught our son Jake the art of meditating when Jake was at university there.   We meet David in Edinburgh and after talking he ordered our “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher” course then in print… (now it’s online) and published a report.   One reader of the report had a new internet server business and was so impressed that he hired David to work for him in Sweden.   In the process of rising to become the managing director of that firm… David started our website (and is still our webmaster as well as business partner now).  During one business meeting in London, David met our daughter, Cinda. ‘Love at First Sight.”

David Cross and Cinda Scott-Cross DVM.

David also met executives of International Living and went on to become Chief Internet Consultant for Agora Inc. one of the largest online marketing companies in the world.

David has since built an unparalleled, hands-on marketing experience that spans 25 years in 22 countries for companies and charities large and small. He’s guided many businesses and individuals to success in their business and helped them achieve their marketing goals, both online and offline.

As Senior Internet Consultant to Agora Inc. in Baltimore, MD, David worked closely with Agora’s publishers and marketers and over an 8-year period helped to propel Agora’s online revenues to over $300 Million in 2009.

Myles Norin, the CEO of Agoras wrote: “I have found David’s knowledge and experience unmatched in the industry. Without David’s expertise and guidance for the past 7 years, we would not be nearly as successful as we are.”

David hails from England and now lives on a small farm close to Mount Hood in Oregon with our daughter, a veterinarian, their five children and a menagerie of animals. When not marketing or brainstorming, you’ll find David following a dream of self-sufficiency for food, power and water within 10 years, tending the land and caring for the farm and animals. Not surprisingly, David is an engaging and knowledgeable speaker with many amusing anecdotes from his work and travels over the years.

Such is the power that Self Publishing brings.

The third story is of my wife, Merri, and me.

Merri became involved in self publishing over 40 years ago… helping the first western veterinarian ever to be trained in acupuncture.  She worked with him to publish his book on a very specific market… animal acupuncture. Then she showed a needle point artist how to sell more books to an even more specific audience… “needle point enthusiasts”  about her needle point work to an audience larger than the population of the city she lived in.  This led Merri to eventually become Executive Editor of two award winning magazines in Florida.

My story allowed me to work and live from Hong Kong to London to Europe to Eastern Europe, then the Caribbean and then Ecuador… making millions in the process of following my adventures and having fun… while helping a large readership adapt to a rapidly changing world.

Self Publishing has created exactly the lifestyle I desire with a farm in North Carolina, orange groves and home in Florida… hotel and condos in Ecuador working at what I love and enjoy.

Today, we have more cars than we can drive, five homes and numerous cabins in North Carolina and Ecuador.  We have a beautiful lake front home on 16 acres (with an orange grove to boot).  We have no mortgages, not a penny of debt, and plenty of money in the bank.

But more important than the money, I enjoy the bliss of each and every day, doing what I love and hoping I can do it forever.

And why wouldn’t I? I often start my work days at 5:00 a.m. and wrap up by 9:00 a.m. That leaves the rest of the day to do mostly as I feel. If the kids are home, we’ll play. Other days, I just putter. Some days I take out a canvas and paint or concentrate on playing my flute. Other days, I just sit in the sun and read.

But even though my day’s work is often finished by the time many people are just getting started, I will still be thousands of dollars richer by the end of the day!

Of course I don’t always work just four hours a day. Some days I stay at the keyboard seven, eight, even 12 hours. But the thing is I love every minute of it, because I’m involved in projects that excite me!

Not only am I learning, writing, and publishing about things that I love, but I’m also making myself and the world a better place in the process. This life is as perfect as any I could ask for.

It Doesn’t Take Long to Start Making Serious Money

When I started my publishing business, I made a 380% return on my initial investment within a month. And it just got better from there.

Of course, no business is without its pitfalls. In fact, I’ve identified 17 pitfalls of publishing and they are covered in the course. It took me more than a decade of struggle to learn how to avoid them all, but I did it.

You see, back in 1974, I had what I thought was a good business, but to be honest, I could never get ahead. I was almost penniless, in debt and living from hand to mouth. Then I discovered the secrets to avoiding the pitfalls. Since then, our publishing business has brought in millions.

Now, Merri and I have packed over 40 years of global publishing and business experience into our course on how to have Self Publishing business.

Before I tell you how this program can help you create your ideal lifestyle, I want to make an important point. I’m not promising that this program will make you rich overnight or that you’ll wake up tomorrow with a more satisfying life. If you’re looking for a way to get rich while you sleep, you should stop reading right now.

But if you’re willing to invest a reasonable amount of time and effort into learning and applying this simple system, it will put you squarely on the road to becoming a wealthy and fulfilled publishing entrepreneur.

Through this in-depth program, I will share, teach, and guide you on everything you need to find a fulfilling path and start making good money right away.

I’ve structured the program to make it as easy as possible for you to implement. You’ll know precisely what to do from the very first day till the day you have a thriving publishing business.

You can start part-time with any dream, passion, and budget. Once you’ve created a product, you’ll enjoy the “multiple effect” of producing profits over and over again.

So the question is… What do you love to do?

What’s Your Passion:  Helping People Who Are in Pain?

Thirty years ago, a client of Merri’s developed a series of pamphlets explaining various chiropractic disorders in very simple terms.  For example: “What Is Whip Lash?”

The pamphlets contained solid information, but were simple 5″ x 7″ brochures with drawings and explanations. He sold them with a rack to chiropractors, who put them in their offices for patients to read.  These little self-published items have sold year in and year out for three decades.

There are thousands of ideas of this sort that can lead to big business. It’s just a matter of figuring out and then acting on your passion.

Although I can work when I please and go where I wish, for me the most important reason for being a publisher is the satisfaction it brings. I love the projects I take on, so work doesn’t feel like, well… work.

I’m passionate about investing, so I publish about that. But what matters is what do you love?

If you love golf, then you can publish things about golf.  Love travel, fishing, dogs, dolls, or art?  Publish about those things.

Are you concerned about crime, war, poverty or environmental issues? You can publish information products that help wipe them out.

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place? Publish a newsletter, write a book (or hire someone to write it for you), record a tape… do something that enlightens people.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it and make a fortune by publishing CDs, lists, books, or any format you choose.

How to Build a Million-Dollar Business in Seven Years

The first time I exposed others to the secrets in Self Publishing: Your Complete Business Plan for Creating a Life Without Borders, it was in a weekend seminar. People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response to the seminar, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.

Unlike programs that are put together by “experts” who have never actually done what their program promotes, this program is not theoretical. It describes step-by-step how Merri and I built a million-dollar international business in just seven years.

Another thing that is unique about us is that Merri and I decided to do the whole business by ourselves. Though we have tens of thousands of buyers and have made millions, we still work at home and do not employ a single person. You’ll be able to do the same—if you wish—because I’ve included everything we did—explained in vivid detail—in the program.

The program is also full of practical publishing ideas and case studies…

For example, you’ll learn about a pilot who published a book on the best airport cafés (suddenly all his flying became tax-deductible!)… how one couple who loved an island wrote a guide on the place and made enough money to buy a home on the beach there… and how another couple made millions with a simple legal idea.

What’s Your Passion: Travel and Tourism?

A client of ours amassed a fortune by starting travel guides for cities. He started with Sarasota, Florida, publishing a simple booklet with attractions, restaurants, etc. and plenty of advertising. Then he moved onto Naples, and on and on,until the whole state of Florida was done.

He didn’t have to put much work into the booklets as he could carry over plenty of generic information from booklet to booklet. But there were plenty of advertisers and plenty of people who wanted to obtain these booklets.

Finally, he franchised the whole operation.

Why This Unique System Is Guaranteed to Put You on the Road to Publishing Success

In Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher Merri and I give away every publishing secret we know and expect those who use this powerful program to reap a fortune and change their whole life for the better.

Why we’ll add the Self Published Kindle addition free.

This course is updated regularly, it is based on the trial and error experiences Merri and I have had for the past 43 years… the very experiences that have made us self-fulfilled multimillionaires.

If you’re wondering what a program like this can do for you, just take a look at how much my seminar on publishing helped the participants. Here’s what some of the folks had to say about what they learned:

“The course fulfilled all my expectations providing all the details necessary to start a publishing business from creating the idea, through marketing including the systems necessary to implement our ideas.” — B. C., Chiropractor  California

“Gary, your system is jam packed with vital information. My head is spinning. Thank goodness this is all backed up by your manual. This is a true and cherished gift. Your tips are a blessing! Thank you once again. The value far exceeds the price.”  — B. K., Investor Pennsylvania

“The course was excellent covering all the facets of publishing. The philosophy of keeping small with no employees alone made the course invaluable. Gary and Merri, you were excellent!” — S. K., Businessman
Georgia

“Your program gave me insight on what to do with widening my client base.”
— M.E., Real Estate Broker Florida

“We found the course interesting and informative. We were inspired to start work on a booklet. When we came down, we had no idea what to publish.”
— Employed couple from New York

“Your publishing course is outstanding! Just two hours of study on Sunday alone were worth more than the course price.”
— A publisher from California

“The course helped me in three ways. #1: To realize that it is not only OK but preferable to start small. #2: A small point but with big implications was Merri’s description of how she is going to make Gary an expert in the sport’s field. #3: I feel I have a workable program to have a newsletter — my own passion!”  – T. B., Professional Washington

These are just a few of the many comments I’ve received from people I’ve personally trained at my seminars to turn their passions into profits through publishing.

What’s Your Passion:  Expand Your Current Business?

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel with your publishing business. You can use publishing to expand your current business. That’s what I did — and it’s what the owners of a consulting firm in California did, too.

These business owners decided to write and publish books to establish credibility and attract new customers — and it worked like a charm.

Over the past 10 years, they have written two books, both aimed at establishing their company as the go-to source for customer service training. They credit the books with bringing in more than $1 million in new business!

Writing and books have turned into such a bonanza that they’ve recently added a new service to their business — coaching small business owners on the ins and outs of book publishing.

This brand-new home study version of the program is designed only for people who are serious about making a six- or seven-figure income, controlling their own destiny, or otherwise improving the quality of their life by publishing information products. It is not for idle curiosity.

Here’s How to Start Living a More Fulfilled Life As a Self-Publisher

Glenn Sterling Ecuador and Cuba

glenn

Super Thinking + Spanish teacher, Dr. Glenn Sterling, Cuba and Ecuador

Glenn Sterling is a late comer to the world of communication in another language – something he prefers to call communication rather than language.

He’s just completing a TEFL course as an English instructor through i to i college in Leeds England and is also teaching Super Thinking + Spanish.

Glenn is a writer and photographer who writes regularly for Pargolf Magazine of Malaysia and for Ecuador Living.

Glenn is a published author on Kindle and is at home in Malaysia, Ecuador, Cuba, Florida and North Carolina.  Traveling on a UK passport, with homes in London and Malaysia, Glenn lives primarily out of his suitcase.  An accomplished sailor and scuba diver, Glenn loves warm waters, sunshine and heat.

John Sloan Costa Rica

costa-rica-spanish-course

Super Thinking + Spanish teacher, John Sloan (Costa Rica).

Mark Frakes USA

Spanish-course

Super Thinking + Spanish teacher, Mark Frakes (USA).

Mark has always been willing to try new things.  Working in a trauma center as an EMT, teaching public school, creating student groups on college campuses, publishing academic works, practicing real estate agency, and administering a university department are all things he has done.  Several careers and jobs later, he still has lots of stories to tell.  Helping people reach their potential is an important theme throughout Mark’s life.

Although Mark was born in the United States, he feels like he was born to wander the planet. Frankly, it was coincidence, serendipity, fate, karma, or however you want to frame it, when his parents purchased a set of Compton’s Encyclopedia.  The volumes shined with tan covers accented with red and gold trim. Wow, a sight to behold for a ten year old. There was no internet.  He smelled the newness of the pages as he cracked opened the bound volumes. For some unknown reason Mark went straight to the geography, his best and favorite course in school.  There it was – the Iberian Peninsula, Spain and Portugal. Then Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean caught his eye.  These were all places where he wanted to visit so they could reveal their secrets among the people he would meet.  Finally, Mark put his education to use by using those vocabulary words he was supposedly learning in Spanish class through travel in the U.S. and abroad.  He really could have used the “Super Thinking+Spanish” course then.

So when the opportunity arose to take the teacher training of the “Super Thinking+Spanish” course with Gary and Merri Scott, Mark jumped at the chance.  It’s a good fit for who he is. He likes to meet new people and help them deal with challenges.  He’s always chosen the challenge and the path to a life of learning. And yes, he’s fallen in a few pits along the way. Trial and error come with their own unique experiences.

Mark has lived and traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada. He has traveled to various international destinations including Mexico, South Africa, Spain, The Bahamas, and Uruguay.  Mark returns to his educational roots to combine his business and education experience to provide new avenues of opportunity and growth to everyone he meets across the globe.  That is, everyone who wants to learn.  The “Super Thinking+Spanish” course is one of those opportunities.

Mark is ready to deliver the course anywhere in the world.  He’s developing a website called HispanicGlobe.com (with a little help from his friends) devoted to all things Hispanic, or as the ancient Romans would say “Hispanicus.” Currently, he’s in the U.S. ready to conduct the “Super Thinking+Spanish” course in St. Louis, MO and Sarasota, FL.  You can reach him at Mark@hispanicglobe.com.

Rick Brown

rick-brown-canada-Spanish-course

Rick Brown SuperThinking plus Spanish teacher, Toronto, Ontario.

What prompted Rick Brown to first take the Super thinking + Spanish course was a trip to Ecuador where he had some issues communicating.

Rick was born in the province of Quebec and moved to the Greater Toronto Area in 1983. He traveled all over Canada during his twenty one year Military service. He has also visited Germany, Scotland, England, France Italy and Moneco, the USA and Ecuador.

Having spent the last thirty five years in the IT field, Rick is currently working for a Municipal Government in Ontario Canada where he is a Network Administrator and helps manage the Enterprise Data Centre and the Enterprise Backup for his group.

An interest in exporting his retirement south led Rick to us. He attended several courses and tours with us in Ecuador and came back for more the following year. He then joined our course to broaden his Spanish skills and wound up enrolling in Teacher Training course and now teaches Spanish.

Rick has worked in English, French and now Spanish. He looks forward to helping you to reach out and grasp Spanish as well.

What prompted Rick to first take the Super thinking + Spanish course was his first trip to Ecuador where he had some issues communicating. He was quite impressed with the Super Thinking aspects of the lessons and wanted to learn more especially  on the aspects of Whole Brain Learning.

Rick’s Toronto venue for the course is very interesting as it is on the south field of Oshawa Airport. This one of the original British Commonwealth Air Training Plan base from the Second World War.

The actual building is one of four remaining structures from the original base and in it’s day was a originaly a mess hall.  It has been completely redone as a meeting and entertainment facility by the membership of the 420 Wing and is one of very few buildings of it’s type remaining in Canada today.

Rick picked the facility because he is a veteran and the funds from our course rentals assist the Wing in running it’s programs which utilize veterans skills and, reach out to assist older veterans and Cadet organizations.

Shawn and Suzanne Bandick

super-thinking-spanish teachers

Super Thinking teachers, Shawn and Suzanne Bandick, (Mexico and B.C.)

In 2001  Suzanne and Shawn Bandick set out on a quest for adventure and a change of culture. They packed up their two kids, and moved from British Columbia, Canada to Mexico. Their  children, now young adults and in search of their own adventure and careers have moved back to Canada but Shawn and Suzanne keep their home base in Puerto Aventuras on the Caribbean coast of Mexico just south of Cancun.

In Canada, they built and trained sales and marketing teams for companies.  They traveled extensively for business and with their children for pleasure. Then came the question, “why do we work so hard just so we can go travel? Why don’t we just go and live abroad?”  Two years later they liquidated down to what would fit in their Toyota 4 runner and headed south.

Once in Mexico, Shawn opened a real estate office which was another fun adventure making tons of new friends and helping them live their dreams.  Suzanne became a writer and a life coach.

They first learned of Super Thinking + Spanish as students and here is their personal testimonial for Super Thinking + Spanish.

This Spanish course has opened up a whole new world of pleasure and ease in communicating for us. We spent ten years in Mexico struggling to learn Spanish feeling overwhelmed and inadequate in the memorization of the hundreds of verbs and the many conjugations of them that all our tutors told us we needed to do. This course changed everything for us. We are thrilled to now be in a space that speaking in Spanish flows for us! We became teachers because of a desire to empower others and hopefully help them avoid the struggle we went through. This method of teaching definitely empowers people! Imagine learning to speak a new language with ease and joy.

What do they love about Mexico?

They love the people, the diversity of the culture, the climate, the history hidden in many of the old cities and the warm sand and palm trees.

Their motto is “Live the Adventure” and invite you to their Super Thinking + Super Spanish class.

The current schedule of Super Thinking + Spanish courses is below.  We can work with you to create your own course at home… or a tour or we can even fit your delegates into an existing course.

Spiro Michas

After a successful 15+ year career in the recruiting & staffing industry;  co-founding and then founding two successful practices, Spiro found himself wanting a change. He grew enthusiastic about Super Thinking + Spanish while taking the course in an effort to learn Spanish after many years of study, re-study, frustration and false starts.  He found he was finally able to speak Spanish and was thoroughly impressed,  He decided to take the Super thinking + Spanish teacher training program to combine his passion for travel and Spanish culture. He is now traveling around Spanish speaking countries with the purpose of facilitating classes and helping fill the demand of English speakers needing to communicate in their new homes.

Learn Spanish in Three Days

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The Learn Spanish in three day course is now available online.

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

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.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are 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

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

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. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then 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.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  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.

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, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, 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.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

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 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 Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  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.

“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 The Course Works

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.

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.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   This is available at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

The course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  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.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning 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.”

How You Learn Best Test


See a test below that can help you understand “How You Learn Best.”

Having just spent nearly a month with two of my newest grandchildren… I can see why so many people have problems learning Spanish… or learning anything for that matter.

leo-scott

Here our grandson, Leo, is teaching me about how to learn via his … everything in mouth trial and error technique.

The ability to keep learning is more important than ever before. Rapid change means we have to keep learning to just keep up… much less retire from the rat race.

This is why we have been increasing our focus on Super Thinking + Spanish through Frequency Modulation where delegates learn Spanish in just three days.  (See our upcoming May courses in Canada and Mexico).

Super Thinking is the important part of this course.  Learning Spanish in such a short time is the tool that proves what a powerful shift in learning that Frequency Modulation can create.

Of course learning Spanish is useful because Spanish it is the third most spoken language in the world. (According to the Krysstal site)

Screen shot 2012-04-11 at 5.53.19 AM.jpg

And of course it is especially useful in North America because such a large part of the Spanish speaking population is nearby in the faster growing portions of the Americas.

Screen shot 2012-04-11 at 5.49.11 AM.jpg

Countries in dark blue are Spanish speaking. The light blue shows where Spanish is most important.

How is it possible to learn Spanish in just three days?  This note from a delegate at our last Super Thinking + Spanish course  helps explain how this is possible.

Hello Merri and Gary,  Just had to express my wonder and pleasure coming from the Super Learning and Super Spanish class in Mount Dora;  it was absolutely fantastic!!  You both have such a wealth of knowledge and expertise, I feel fortunate to have found you; I really mean that.  Someone said “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”.  You appeared.

I have been amazed at how my head keeps pulling up the correlations we learned.  Every time I see words I’m trying to put them into Spanish.

I did have the opportunity today on a flight to experiment some with a Brazilian lady.  We each caught a few words.

I am saying all the English words, then repeating them in Spanish as we did in class.  I have a home in Mexico where I will be able to do a lot of practicing in May.  There is a gardener who has always tried to communicate with me; I will be practicing with him and the maid, then on to the “streets”!  My granddaughter also was tutored for a year in Mexico; we will be conversing also.  I’m very excited about this.

The July Writer’s Camp in July will be as good I know.

Muchas gracias por trabajo fantastico.  Instrutors es excelente y patiente para estudentes.

(now as you said – these two sentences may not be completely correct, but I know you will know what I’m saying…and that’s all we really want to do!)

This is the key to learning Spanish in three days.  The course gives delegates the ability to communicate in Spanish so they can create sentences every single day.

A study for the CIA on how to help people learn second languages showed that the key to learning was “the willingness  to speak a language even though one was bad at it in the beginning”.  In short  those who learn the fastest and the best were those who applied trail and error to learning a language.

Enter Leo and Matilda our grandkids. Dada.  Maa Ma.  Is this perfect English?  Not a bit but do you think it will communicate?   Mom and dad will go bananas when they hear this first attempt to communicate.

The willingness to speak a new language even though not perfectly is the key to learning.   Plus what is perfect?  As languages evolve,  isn’t it a bit silly to worry about perfection when “How R U” and “TQ” (Thank You) and “cool” “awesome” “I am 4 U” and other such short cuts are now accepted forms of communication?

The cool awesome thing about Super Thinking + Spanish is that it prepares you to communicate in just three days so you do not sound bad at all.  Your three day Spanish is very eloquent and allows you to apply trial and error after the course in three different ways… speaking words you read and hear in your lessons…   creating Spanish sentences that get your point across mentally in a technique we call “detouring” and by creating sentences daily. When you memorize a sentence you quickly forget. When you create a sentence, it is yours forever!

There is a fourth dimension to learning that every person can apply differently depending on how they learn so we want to share the test below.  It can help you understand better how you specifically learn but first may I remind you that at the root of all scientific discovery is trial and error.

Trial and error IS the root of all scientific application… so much so that many higher education facilities now teach improved problem-solving skills in special events such as the Science Olympiad  as explained (linked below) at the New Mexico Tech a scinece and engineering research university.

Application of problem solving skills as a long term endeavor.
Education is the importance of trial and error.
Emphasis on experiences rather than memorization.

We can apply trial and error in different ways and learn in different ways. Understanding how we learn best can help us be more effective!  Here is the test at the selfgrowth.com site.

In Part 3 of the Self Improvement 101 course by David Riklan at that site says (bolds are mine):

Part 3:  How to Immediately Determine Which of the Top 3 Learning Styles Will Work Best for You – by David Riklan says:
Today’s section (Part 3) focuses on the different ways in which we learn.  By figuring out your most appropriate LEARNING STYLE(s), you will be able to determine which type of self-help you’re best suited for.

 The three major learning styles defined by psychologists include:

Visual Learning
Auditory Learning
Kinesthetic Learning

 You’ll certainly be able to learn more effectively by understanding which learning style works for you.  But don’t believe that you’re limited to just one!  In fact, mostly all of us use a combination of styles.  It is important, however, for you to be part of an environment that makes the most of your learning ability.  

VISUAL LEARNERS (approximately 65 percent of the population) This type of learner is best at collecting information with their eyes. This includes looking at visual images or reading text.  Visual learners usually prefer graphics, illustrations and charts.  They are able to remember details and ideas in picture form, typically what they’ve seen before. 

AUDITORY LEARNERS (approximately 30 percent of the population) This type of learner is best at collecting information with their ears. This includes listening and talking.  Although easily distracted, auditory learners learn by memorizing sound.  For instance, they learn instructions by repeating them over and over again, even in silent form. They often like background music to block out interrupting noises.

KINESTHETIC LEARNERS (approximately 5 percent of the population) This type of learner is best at collecting meaning through touch and movement.  Kinesthetic learners learn through physical interaction; most are young children.  In essence, touching is a way of seeing.

So, which of these three styles is most effective for you?  If you’re not sure, here is an exercise to help.  Read through the following examples and note down how many apply to you personally.  By counting how many check marks you have in each category, you can determine the type of learning that is right for you.

A VISUAL LEARNER.

—Reads or watches TV to relax.

—Tends to remember people’s faces but not their names.

—Gets distracted by untidiness when concentrating.

—Learns about a new idea by reading the book.

—Attempts to spell a difficult word by writing to see how it looks.

—Solves problems most easily by writing out possible solutions.

AN AUDITORY LEARNER.

—Listens to music or the radio to relax.

—Tends to remember people’s names but not their faces.

—Gets distracted by noise when concentrating.

—Learns about a new idea by purchasing the audio tapes.

—Attempts to spell a difficult word by sounding it out.

—Solves problems most easily by talking through possible solutions.

A KINESTHETIC LEARNER.

—Does a physical activity or plays a sport to relax.

—Tends to remember people by recalling things he/she did with them.

—Gets distracted by moving people when concentrating.

—Learns about a new idea by going to the seminar.

—Attempts to spell a difficult word by writing to see how it feels.

—Solves problems most easily through hands-on experience.

If you have a high score for visual learners, then I recommend you utilize visual presentations like illustrations, slides and videos. If you see that you are more of an audio learner, then audio sources like tapes or lectures will suit you best. If you happen to fit under the kinesthetic category, then a kinesthetic or hands-on approach to learning will help.

Certainly it is possible to score evenly across all three.  This shows that you are able to learn well using either the visual, audio or kinesthetic learning styles.  Congratulations!

The knowledge you gain about yourself from this test can help you improve your ability to learn through trial and error.

In these times of rapid change… this ability to keep abreast and get ahead of change can be the most effective step in moving forward in any career or situation that you desire.

How Super Thinking + Spanish Began

By Merri Scott

merri scott

Merri Scott

A Rainy Night in Georgia…late 1960s. I had returned to my family home in the Deep South after 2 1/2 years of language study at the Goethe Institute in Europe.

The accomplishment of German in the Institutes in Europe was extremely painful and stressful. Although I did obtain bountiful mastery as well as even dreamed in German after over 2 years there, I felt exhausted and depleted. I should have been excited, thrilled and happy.

It was one of those rainy winters in Georgia. After 2 previous years suffering bad weather in Europe, I longed for the sun and the then unknown to me, Caribbean.

It occurred to me that I should winter in Yucatan. The urge to explore another country and the desire to pursue a career in Import & Export plus the continued dreary weather convinced me to go and try it. I was young AND foolish.

So, I packed a suitcase & headed out. As a language major, I was fluent in French, German with years of Latin and Origins of Modern Language courses behind me.

For some reason I overlooked the fact that I was not fluent in Spanish!

Loving the weather but not enjoying (or being able to afford) an idle life, I discovered a world of opportunity. The markets of Yucatan unfolded to me, discovering the wonders of textiles beautifully made in styles and fabrics unknown to the U.S. at that time. I was hooked!

However, not speaking Spanish made me feel deprived, lazy, lonely and not in a strong position to do business. It was imperative to speak Spanish! Fast!!!
What happened was quite miraculous. We’ll share these rules/ideas/words that allowed me to communicate…not in an erroneous, clumsy way but in the way of a scholar-an honorable, gracious person respecting others & language.

Fluency in a language as the Goethe Institut (the respected language school) defines it as 1200 words.

Because I had studied for those years under this powerful learning system, I knew of its accuracy. As I struggled to teach myself Spanish, my first thoughts were “How quickly can I know 1200 words?” Well, a lot quicker than you can imagine! Modern languages (French, Spanish, Italian, English) are based on Latin, with the same roots. If I knew a word in French or English, perhaps there would be a similar word in Spanish. This led to a number of “rules” on how to automatically convert English words to Spanish.

My great hope was there might be a couple of hundred words that are more or less the same in both languages…but lo and behold, you’ll see that there are actually 4005 words!

(These I painstakingly selected. I went joyfully through every word in the largest Spanish dictionary and decided whether its English counterpart was familiar & suitable & if so, added it to my list.) I joyfully made this incredibly long list to help all others gain fluency!

gary&merri scott

Gary & Merri Scott teaching in Copenhagen.

Fluency by Association

Let’s remember that 1200 words are fluency in a language!

How does it feel to realize that right now, we already know 4005 words in Spanish?

Back then, I thought…I need to know how to pronounce these words and I need to know how to recognize more and more and that’s about it…but whoa!
How about speaking in whole sentences? How about conjugation of verbs? How about the dreaded derivation of sentences? How about sounding gracious and honorable?

I must learn instantly. I must speak now. I must communicate. I sought to communicate…while honoring the language. Could this possibly be?

Well, of course it could. And it did.

gary&merriscott

Gary & Merri Scott at the Equator leading a group to Cotacachi Ecuador.

Years later, I was fortunate enough to be chosen for Dr. Georgi Lozanov’s (the Bulgarian Master) SuperLearning Course and became a certified teacher in this stress free, remarkable system. But that’s another story, which we will discuss later. For now, just remember I was on a very short string and desperately wanted and needed to speak Spanish…so what follows is exactly what happened.

It is my most humble pleasure to offer the following easy system so that you, too, may seek your own adventures and enjoy one of the great pleasures in life- communication!

The class and the teachings were extraordinary. We had the head of the Buddhist Monks, the Cultural Minister of Russia, the head of the radionics masters from Zurich, and a number of equally fascinating people. And then there was me!

After being chosen to take part and to be licensed in these techniques in 1976, my life was changed forever. Spending weeks with 11 others from all over the world was a remarkable experience. Having the benefit of the understanding and experience of Dr. Georgi Lozanov, the energy and drive of Dr. Carl Schleicher and the devotion to language of who was to come my best friend, Parisian Simone Bedard (whose father was the Ambassador from France) gave me the root, the basis, the knowledge and the joy of these powerful techniques.

Over 32 years ago, I was transformed forever and have never looked back.

In a sense, super learning adds by taking away by deleting negative suggestions, limiting ideas, fear images, and self-blame. It is not so much that super learning gives us something new…it gives us something we already have…ourselves!

This joy of learning and a feeling of harmony riding along on the full wave of one’s being are some of the benefits. Super learning is the ability to learn and remember increased five to 50 times.

The Roots of Super Memory

Lozanov uncovered some fascinating lore about the origins of super memory. He felt that the “how to” of this extraordinary super memory had been handed down from leader to leader in ancient times. “Yogis needed hypermnesia. They did nothing but memorize all the sacred writings so that whatever happened, if all books and recorded knowledge disappeared, as long as even one yogi lived, he would be able to restore all the lost knowledge from memory.”

Dr. Lozanov went to live with the Maoris in New Zealand as well as with the Yogis in India. He found that all were trained in the same super memory methods. The Maori Chief, Kaumatana, could recite the entire history of his tribe covering 45 generations and over one thousand years in 3 days without any notes.

Lozanov had practiced Raja Yoga for 20 years, but he realized that Bulgarians could not utilize all the exercises of those Yogi masters. What he developed was his own techniques for learning from the ancient ones.

But what he wanted is that everyday people could have the qualities of photographic super memory, instant calculations, extraordinary mental activities, pain control along with a whole range of paranormal abilities.

But as a scientist and a doctor, He knew that he must have a scientific basis in order to succeed in helping his people, the Bulgarians.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The Learn Spanish in three day course is now available online.

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

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.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are 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

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

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. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then 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.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  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.

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, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, 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.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

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 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 Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  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.

“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 The Course Works

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.

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.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   This is available at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

The course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  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.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning 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.”

Earn Teaching Spanish


One way to have an alternative income is by tapping into two of the future’s hottest trends as an FM teacher. See why below and see how to learn a special ways to teach increased intelligence and Spanish.

One way to use FM is to teach Spanish.

Fwd: spanish-teachers

Our 2011 Super Thinking FM teachers learning and developing alternate sources of income.

Two points almost everyone agrees on about the future are… first we need to be smarter to keep up with the faster pace of change… and second the world’s economy has and will continue to globalize.

This is one reason why we combined the Super Thinking tactics we teach with learning Spanish.

First, we need to be smarter.  Super Thinking tactics we use help us that and create a new income opportunity.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ” says:  Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it. Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows. The increases are usually so incremental that they’re not immediately perceptible to individuals, and the intelligence-boosting effects of cognitive training can fade after a few months.

In the latest study, 33 British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later by researchers at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at University College London; 9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

On a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age, says Cathy Price, professor of cognitive neuroscience at the center and co-author of the study, published last month in Nature.

Swings in individual IQ scores are often written off as the product of measurement error or a test subject having a bad day. But MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kids’ skills, Dr. Price says. Although the sample size is small, the study drew wide attention because it is among the first to show how changes in IQ scores may be reflected in actual shifts in brain structure.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes. A 30-year study at the National Institute of Mental Health found that people whose work involves complex relationships, setting up elaborate systems or dealing with people or difficult problems, tend to perform better over time on cognitive tests. Test scores of people whose jobs are simple and require little thought actually tend to decline, according to the research, published in 1999 in Psychology and Aging.

New tasks stimulate the brain most. When researchers at the University of Hamburg subjected 20 young adults to one month of intense training in juggling, they found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began. The added gray matter receded when the training was stopped, although the participants were still able to juggle, says the study, published in 2008 in PLoS One.

IQ tests don’t measure such abilities as creativity, common sense or social sensitivity. They do assess many kinds of knowledge and abilities, including abstract reasoning skills. Rising scores in abstract reasoning are the main reason average IQ scores have been increasing by about three points every decade since the 1930s, based on studies by James Flynn, a professor emeritus of political studies at the University of Otago in New Zealand. That may be partly because children spend nearly twice as many years in school, on average, than children decades ago, says Wendy M. Williams, a professor in the department of human development at Cornell University.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of a complex job, musical training, advanced schooling and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life, according to research by E. Glenn Schellenberg, a psychology professor at the University of Toronto at Mississauga. Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points; those gains eroded to two points by college age, says a study published in 2006 in the Journal of Educational Psychology.

FM stands for Frequency Modulation to improve the brain in three ways… one being through the use of music.  So FM Super Thinking tactics, first of all, helps people become smarter.

Second, our FM program teaches Spanish in four days… to prove the power of the technique.

Spanish courses offer a strong income potential because globalization, particularly in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico (due to NAFTA and massive immigration) make it more important to be able to communicate with people from other countries.  Increasingly, the second language U.S. citizens are choosing to learn is Spanish.  Americans and Canadians are studying Spanish in record numbers.  According to Businessweek, for example, more students studying for an MBA in today’s world are choosing to become trilingual by learning English, French, and Spanish.

Moreover, two of the top ten MBA schools outside the U.S. are located in Spain.

There are many other reasons to learn Spanish… about 500 million reasons… the global population who speak Spanish.   About half of the people in  the Western hemisphere speak Spanish, as many people as those who speak English.    Within the USA Spanish is the second language after English—by a wide margin.  According to Wikipedia Spanish is the most commonly spoken language in the world after English, Chinese, and Hindustani.

In the U.S., it is easier to get a job if you speak both Spanish and English.

Having an alternative language can help you have an alternative income.

FM teaching turns your income up and education upside down!  See below how our Spanish teachers earn income but are forbidden to speak Spanish when they teach.  They must teach Spanish in English, but they can teach English to Spanish students as well… in English!

The FM Story

In telecommunications and signal processing, FM stands for frequency modulation that conveys information over a carrier wave by varying its instantaneous frequency.

The educational program Merri and I have developed uses a different form of frequency modulation we like to call “Full Mode” that opens enormous opportunity for expansion, understanding, peacefulness as well as greater wealth.  We are sharing this in depth program with a select few through our new teacher program.

FM teaching uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  This brings forth the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

How the Quantum Learning History Brings Opportunity to You Now:

Our FM programs are not gimmicks or tricks… just advanced education.

Merri and I are explorers. Our business began 44 years ago (May 1968) and we continue to always look for what’s next… trying to stay on or ahead of the leading edge.

This process helped us create the totally unique system we use that incorporates numerous tactics.

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.

This one tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons. An innovative method call the Lozanov learning system is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned directly and is licensed in these techniques.

Merri has enhanced this system with numerous other tactics. One is to make slight alterations in nutrition. Altered nutrition can make anyone a person 25% smarter.  These two tactics are given in seven, easy to use learning techniques that help gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…  in much less time than traditional learning techniques… often two-to-five times faster, in exciting and innovative ways…but most of all it is a system that is stress free and full of fun.

The third tactic builds on the first two and uses 17 unique lessons to provide a vocabulary of over 4,000 words that brings Spanish fluency in a short time.

Our Quantum Learning System helps in innumerable walks of life.  This is why the second year of our teaching program offers extra opportunity for you now.

Problems Can Create Opportunity

There is a huge and growing problem of accelerating change that requires accelerated learning.  Learning Spanish is just a tiny part of the demand this problem creates.  Expended learning capacity is far more valuable than just being able to speak Spanish.  So we are expanding the FM focus in our business… shifting into overdrive you might say with what we call FM Plus.

FM Plus Frequency Modulation/Full Mode Plus

FM Plus works by focusing on the learner first… the data second.  FM Plus “grows the learner” rather than just expands the information.  The explosion of data we must all process every day means there is too much information to process already.  Let’s view this learning in terms of plumbing to outline what “Growing the Learner”  means.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is to first create a six inch pipe and then an even larger pipe…a never ending expansion of abilities!

FM Plus incorporates Frequency Modulation…  7th degree exploration and Core Revelation (wormholes – universal expansion and shortcuts) to expand the learner’s thinking and information processing ability.

We’ll do this through our FM Plus Process which we have been using in our Super thinking Plus Spanish course. Now we are integrating this process into our International Investing and Business courses as well.  This means we’ll provide this training six times in the US in 2012.

The demand for FM far exceeds the numbers Merri and I can handle in six seminars a year.  Because we don’t have time to do more seminars, we have been adding a teacher training program to replace ourselves.

The teacher training program is described below.  This is our second year. Last year was our initial  Beta program and though we are always learning and teaching we had never trained teachers before. You’ll see some results below.

We accepted 12 trainees in 2011 for our first FX Plus training plan. Now we are accepting 12 more for 2012.  Trainees can attend all the seminars we conduct in 2012.  They are asked to attend at least four of these seminars.  As a teacher you are also a member of our International Club and gain the following benefits.

Benefit #1:  You (and a guest of your choice) can attend all of the seminars we have already set plus any others that we’ll conduct over the year ahead worth a total value of $6,993 or more.

Benefit #2:  As a club member you receive FREE seven reports, email courses and workshops that would cost $1,265 if ordered separately.

The first online course is “Tangled Web – How to Have Your Own Web Based Business”, normally sold at $299.

The second is our online course “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher”. which has a $299 value. I am sending you this extra course free as I think it will help you have greater success. You get an extra $299 savings.

The third is our online course “International Business Made EZ” sold at $229.

You also receive fourth the 50 minute video by our webmaster David Cross on “How to Get Your Web Business Started”.

You save by being a teacher.  $6,993 of seminars and courses for $2,900.  This saves $4,003 … plus there is $1,265 more savings in online courses you also receive free.

However the teacher training is the real value you receive in this program.  You learn at the courses and seminars and we have special trainee sessions during each course that are invaluable.

FX Plus training plan teaches how to teach and how to create your own business simultaneously.  We also teach trainees
how to earn from seminars courses and tours.  See how we have earned as much as $200,000 for a weekend’s work. (Once $135,000 in two days.)

Share our 44 years of Experience

When it comes to having a micro business in online publishing, seminars, courses and tours, there are few people with more experience than Merri and me.  Over 44 years we have organized, marketed and conducted thousands of tours for tens of thousands in dozens and dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  This course shares how we have done this… what we did right… what we did wrong… and what you can do better.

We have worked with our first group of teachers since last November and are pleased enough with the results that we are inviting 12 more teachers to begin now to prepare for 2012.

Our goal is for these teachers to work in their own ways and methods.  Some of the current teachers have chosen to teach our Super Thinking Spanish course. To date trainees have taught three Super Thinking + Spanish courses, two in Ecuador and one in the USA with very good results.  Our current plans are for several of the 2011 trainees to conduct regular seminars over the next year.

Rob Girga (right) and Glenn Sterling (2nd left) replaced Merri and me and taught Super Thinking plus Spanish in Cotacachi, Ecuador this year in the same hotel as a Miss Ecuador pageant.  Here they met with the contestants.

Teachers of our Spanish program do not have to speak Spanish during the course by the way.  In fact even Merri and I prohibit ourselves from speaking Spanish when we teach.  This is because the course uses and FM teacher and a pronunciation coach who must be a native born Spanish speaker.

Picking up pronunciation from an English born speaker is like recording a tape from a previous recording. Quality is lost!  The FM teacher… including Merri and me work in English and work with a pronunciation coach who does all the Spanish speaking.

Others are teaching their own programs using the tactics they learned to help their own business. For example it is quite easy to reverse the process we use and teach Spanish speakers to communicate in English in just four days.

alberto-verdezoto

Alberto Verdezoto has been our pronunciation coach in Cotacachi, Ecuador for the last 5 years.

Since this is a Beta program it will continue to evolve. We cannot guarantee who we will work with and who won’t.   Becoming a trainee does NOT guarantee that you will become a teacher in our program.  Indications after 10 months are that eight of the 12 trainees in 2011 will be involved in teaching our Super Thinking course but this is no assurance for 2012.

The FM Plus Plan Goes Way Beyond Spanish

Our training will teach you an effective way to teach languages but covers much more many… perhaps all fields of education.

For example.  We teach at the International Business & Investing seminars we conduct a workshop on how FM Plus can be applied to starting and running a business, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  The Soviet Union… even though a third world country… excelled in the Olympics… as well as beating the USA into outer space… because it integrated FM teaching tactics as developed by Dr. Georgi Lozanov (one of Merri’s teachers) into its educational system.

Our FX Plus plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to enhance whatever subject you wish to teach.

Couples are priced as one.  Merri and I have worked for 30 years as a couple. Our business would not exist without both of us… so a couple can attend for one fee.

You can enroll with  whomever you wish… your spouse, or business partner, even an adviser.  Two can be trainees for the price of one.  (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for trainees, delegates or their guests.)

#1:  The fee is $2,900

New Enrollment. $2,900 .

We hope you’ll join us as a trainee in our FM Plus (Frequency Modulator) training plan and learn how to create extra income in two of the hottest trends ahead.
