First, let me point out that the sentence “We Wait for Pain” shows why learning Spanish may be easier than you think.
Super Thinking + Spanish teacher John Sloan teaching his first course in Costa Rica.
This sentence “We wait for pain” shows one reason Spanish is so easy to learn. In Spanish there are hardly ever confusing words that sound one way but are spelled another. Even better there are no words that sound the same but are spelled in a totally different way and have a completely different meanings. “We wait for pain” could be “Wee Weight Four Pane”.
Spanish is a phonetic language. There ya go. Another example. Even the word phonetic makes no sense phonetically. This word should be spelled “Fonetic”. In fact in Spanish it is… “Fonético”.
The phonetic aspect of Spanish is one reason why you can learn Spanish in three days. See other reasons at Learn Spanish in Three Days.
However there are more important reasons “Beyond Simple” to know Super Thinking + Spanish and why a micro business teaching Spanish offers incredible opportunity “Beyond Money”.
The excerpt below from the New York Times article “Exercising an Aging Brain” by By Denise Grady shows that teaching is an exceptional career “beyond the money” because it slows mental aging!
Here is an excerpt from the article (bolds are mine): MORE and more retired people are heading back to the nearest classroom — as students and, in some cases, teachers — and they are finding out that school can be lovelier the second time around. Some may be thinking of second careers, but most just want to keep their minds stimulated, learn something new or catch up with a subject they were always curious about but never had time for.
For many, at least part of the motivation is based on widespread reports that exercising the brain may preserve it, forestalling mental decline and maybe even Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.
“When you and I are having this conversation, you’re taking notes, thinking, remembering pieces of it, trying to relate it to other things,” said Arthur Toga, a professor of neurology and director of the laboratory of neuroimaging at the University of California, Los Angeles. “You’re changing the circuitry in your brain. That is because you have changed something in your brain to retain that memory.”
Dr. Toga elaborated: “The conversation requires nerve cells in the brain to fire, and when they fire they are using energy. More oxygen and sugar must be delivered, by increased blood flow to those regions.
“Why would that be good? If you are vasodilating, delivering more blood to certain regions of the brain, that is important. It increases the longevity and the health of those circuits. In adults, if I ask you to perform tasks you’ve never done before, the amount of brain it takes for you to try and do it is far greater than the amount of brain it takes for you to do something you’re already good at. So yes, exercising the brain is good.” Playing video games probably qualifies as a type of brain exercise, he said, though older people might not sharpen their skills as fast as younger ones do.
But research continues. Dr. William Jagust, a professor of public health and neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley, said there were two main theories that tried to explain why exercising the brain might make it more resistant to disease.
One is the “cognitive reserve” theory, which says that if the brain is in the best possible shape with extensive neuronal connections from being used a lot, it may be able to withstand the onset of Alzheimer’s disease for a while and symptoms may take longer to develop.
A hallmark of Alzheimer’s is deposits in the brain of an abnormal form of a protein called amyloid.
“A paper we published showed that people who were more cognitively active over their whole life span had less amyloid,” Dr. Jagust said.
“A variety of things is important,” Dr. Toga said. “We try to encourage people to do certain things because it couldn’t hurt and may be good. Retaining lots of social interaction is really important. It involves so much of the brain. You have to interpret facial expressions and understand new concepts. If you want to learn to ride a monocycle or do acrobatics at 75, it’s probably not a good idea. But exercising more geography in the brain, I think that’s important.”
Few activities are as socially interactive as teaching! This does not mean we should wait until we are old to teach.
The same article also said: “My interpretation is that people who are more cognitively active have more efficient brains,” Dr. Jagust said. “What seems to happen in aging is that older people seem to have less efficient brains.” A scan of brain activity on a 20-year-old being asked to remember something will show less activity needed than in an 80-year-old asked to perform the same task.
“Older people seem to activate or bring on line brain areas that young people don’t use,” Dr. Jagust said. “They have to work their brains harder. So people who stay cognitively active may use their brains more efficiently.”
That way, they may generate fewer amyloid deposits. But he emphasized that being mentally active throughout life — not just in old age — was what mattered.
“It has to do with lifelong patterns of behavior,” Dr. Jagust said. “We tend to focus on what people do at 75 in terms of dementia. But there is more evidence that what you do in your life, at 40 or 50, is probably more important.”
This era of rapid change makes it harder to earn a good living and enjoy life. Standardization… globalization and growing population puts stress on so many. We call it the rat race… a never ending struggle where the treadmill continually accelerates.
This stress and the unraveling of the social pact… mean that money… savings… investments… pensions and Social Security are becoming less and less dependable. The only real assets are a keen mind, dependable body and an ability to serve.
This is why teaching is such a great way to serve. In this information era… few things are as valuable as knowledge. Plus the process provides freedom and helps us remain mentally active.
Whether you learn to teach Super Thinking or not… learn to teach something. This is a good way to return some of the blessings we have all received and we gain more than money. We may gain mental clarity and much more. One Super Thinking + Spanish teacher who just completed his first course (which allowed him to spend the winter in South America and earn while there) summed up the greatest benefit perfectly when he wrote.
“Although drained and tired yesterday from three days of being “on”, today I feel very buoyant and charged up from the joy and positive feedback I got from the delegates. Along with their progress from no Spanish to speaking before my very eyes, I can report to you in all honesty the feeling I have being part of their progress is simply intoxicating. I understand now why you and Merri do what you do very well indeed.”
New Teacher Aid Program. There is a new way to learn how to speak Spanish in three days FREE as a Teacher’s Aid. See details here.
Change. We fear it. We resist it and we can let us ruin our lives. Yet without it… our existence would still be in caves. As change speeds up we can embrace change and retire from the rat race. For mental stability… the sooner… may be the better so we do not have to “wait for pain as we age”. Hoo kneads the weight of waiting inn are thyme???
Earn From Two Hot Trends-Teaching Super Thinking + Spanish
One way to have an alternative income is by tapping into two of the future’s hottest trends as a Super Thinking + Spanish teacher.
The teacher program is now closed except to residents of Ecuador or Asia. For details contact Gary Scott at www.garyascott.com
See why below and see how to learn a special ways to teach increased intelligence and Spanish.
Our 2011 Super Thinking + Spanish 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 science of Super Thinking with learning Spanish.
Be smarter as the world turns faster. Super Thinking tactics in our courses help create new income opportunity and also can improve health.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Super Thinking Tactics improve the brain in three ways… one being through the use of music. Second, our program teaches Spanish in three 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.
Super Thinking teaching turns your income up and your 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 Super Thinking Story
The educational program Merri and I have developed uses a form of brain wave integration 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.
Super Thinking 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 Super Learning History Brings Opportunity to You Now:
Our Super Thinking 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 from Dr. Lozanov the one time he visited the USA 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 just part of 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.
A Livescience.com article entitled “CIA Seeks Anyone, Anyone Who Can Speak 2 Languages” shows 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 trial and error to learning a language.
The willingness to speak a new language even though not perfectly is the key to learning. Super Thinking + Spanish prepares you to communicate in just three days so you do not sound bad at all. The 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 your forever!

Our Super 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 Super Learning focus in our business… shifting our mental process into overdrive.
Super Thinking works by focusing on the learner first… the data second. This system “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!
Now we are integrating this process into our Super Business Made EZ courses as well. This means we’ll provide this training six times in the US in 2012 & the winter of 2013.
The demand for Super Thinking 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 Super Thinking teacher training plan. Now we are accepting 12 more for 2012-2013. Trainees can attend all the seminars we conduct in 2012 and winter of 2013.
Fast Track Super Spanish Camp
During our beta program teachers were required to attend four courses over a year.
Now due to the New Spanish Camp process we are conducting at our farm we have whittled this down to two or three teacher sessions. The upcoming courses either in November, 2012 or January or March 2013.
You’ll be trained during the course we teach and at special meeting before and after the camp and the other course you attend.
As a teacher you are also a member of our International Club and gain the following benefits.
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.

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 2013.
Our goal is for these teachers to work in their own ways and methods. Some teachers who were already life coaches have enrolled just to apply the techniques to their existing profession. Others have applied what they learned to charity teaching.
Some of the new teachers have chosen to teach our Super Thinking Spanish course and we have to developed a Co Op site to help them build their business.
These teachers have now taught courses in Ecuador, the Amazon, Uruguay, Mexico, Costa Rica, Seattle, St. Luis, Sarasota, Vancouver and Toronto.
We have been pleased with results. The first four teachers had 9 to 15 students but one in Vancouver had 25 with $6,737 in sales and one in
Toronto is at 16 with $5,041. Not all the teachers have had this success… some are getting six and seven delegates in each course. One failed to get any signups and though we have received great comments about all the teachers ability to teach, the teachers with the highest income have been those who can get out and market the course.
We have learned a lot about teaching teachers in the first year and are even better at teaching teachers now.
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 a Super thinking 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 teacher… including Merri and me work in English and work with a pronunciation coach who does all the Spanish speaking.
Merri teaching with our pronunciation coach, Don Childs.
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 three days.
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 the first year is that eight of the 12 trainees in 2011 will be involved in teaching our Super Thinking course but this is no assurance for 2013.
Super Thinking Goes Way Beyond Spanish
Our training teaches an effective way to teach languages but covers much more many… perhaps all fields of education.
For example. We teach Super Thinking Business seminars that show how these mind expanding tactics 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 Super Thinking 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.)
The fee is $2,900 Enroll here $2,900 .
