CORONAVIRUS IN ECUADOR

At the time of writing this article on Wednesday April 1st there are 885.000 confirmed cases of COVID19 worldwide out of which Ecuador has reported 2.302, with 79 deaths.

Ecuador’s reported cases and deaths translate to 130 cases and 4 deaths per 1M in population. This would seem quite low if compared to the list-topping US with 573 cases and 12 deaths per million, Italy’s 1,750 cases and 206 deaths or Spain’s 2,185 and 194.

However, there are likely much more cases in Ecuador and worldwide. We need to consider that some countries may be reporting faster and better in tune with the number and quality of the tests they may be conducting.

As many as 25% to 50% of the people who become bearers of COVID19 show no symptoms or rather mild ones, yet can spread the disease to others. Main symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath.

Social distancing is essential to keep the spread of the virus at bay. We have been admonished and mandated to do so in Ecuador and for the most this has been taken to heart.

Out of the COVID 19 cases in Ecuador, Guayaquil has the most with 1,116, followed by Quito with 197, Cuenca with 58 and Manta with 27. Salinas has reported 4 cases.

To combat the spread and flatten the curve, since Wednesday March 25 there is a curfew in place that goes from 2pm to 5am and establishes fines that start at $100 for first time offenders, $400 for second time offenders and prison for third time offenders.

Furthermore, starting on March 28 further restrictions have been enacted, with cars being able to circulate only two days per week according to the last number on the license plate.

Vehicles with license plates ending in 1, 2 and 3 can circulate Mondays and Fridays. Those with license plates ending on 4, 5 and 6 on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Those with 7, 8 and 9 on Wednesdays and Sundays and those ending in 0 on Mondays and Thursdays. Circulation is restricted for errands regarding food, medicine and gas.

Those with essential activities may, however, apply for a safe passage.

Social distancing is important as it appears that the virus can also be transmitted through the air. While experts tend to agree that it’s mostly safe to spend time outdoors with forays encouraged for mental health, distance, density and ventilation matter. It can be very difficult to control that people not come close to each other and groups form.  Promoting forays can lead to many people coming together and there’s risk, hence the restrictions.

Wearing face masks is a must, more than to avoid catching airborne particles of the virus, it is to prevent people carrying it from contaminating surfaces with droplets and projecting airborne contaminants.

Last week I went to the local supermarket to get groceries for Isabella and my ex-wife, who are under strict quarantine as they had recently come from abroad. There were allowing a limited number of customers in at a time, perhaps less than 50% capacity.

The line to get in was long but mostly due to a rather good distance being respected between each person.

To go in we all had to be wearing masks and gloves, and staff would spray each customer with disinfectant from head to toe. All carts had been sanitized and before grabbing one they’d put disinfectant gel in your hands. While shopping, they’d ask customers on the PA for them to shop in haste, so those waiting outside could come in.

These measures are essential to combat the spread of the virus.

As I mentioned in my previous email, it so heartwarming to see so many people, communities and companies contributing and coming together in this time of need.

Please stay safe,

Andrés Córdova

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Three Days

Now you have time!  Do some of the things you have always wanted but did not have a chance. 

For example, learn Spanish at home.

To make this possible for the next four days we are offering an incredible $110.95  Stay-At-Home discount.  Our super Spanish course is normally $149.95.

From now through Easter Sunday April 12, 2020, you can order the entire online course for only $39.

You can learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.

In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish.  Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines.  They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.

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, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration 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 Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

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 these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

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”.

In an incredibly short time 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.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

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.   The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but now you have time to do some of the things you have always wanted but did not have a chance. 

To make this possible for the next four days we are offering an incredible $110.95  Stay-At-Home discount.  Our super Spanish course is normally $149.95.

From now through Easter Sunday April 12, 2020, you can order the entire online course for only $39.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

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.

Life is Good


Life is good and despite the pandemic we have more to be thankful for than we can imagine.

Over 51 years of living, working and traveling abroad, Merri and I have been honored to live through many times of turmoil.

We’ve lived through floods, riots, hurricanes, kidnappings, too many stock market crashes and even countries entirely shutting down.

The full on country collapse took place in Ecuador.

History never repeats exactly so it’s impossible to know precisely what to do during this pandemic, but each of those crashes and crises provided lessons that can help clear a path to a better future.

Merri and I were spending an entire winter at our Ecuadorian plantation living with a shaman and his apprentices. We walked the cloud forest with him daily and his apprentices as we learned.  Here we are on one of these treks.

Ecuador-Thanksgiving

The shaman and his apprentices stayed in our plantation house. We lived in this crumbling 10’x 10′ hut, no electricity, no phone and no hot water…for all those months.

Ecuador-Thanksgiving

Our goal was to understand how these people really lived, thought and felt. We did not expect how much to learn, how much we truly are blessed in life and how much we have to be thankful for.

Though the apprentices had no material wealth and earned about $30 a month, the joy and happiness during that time with those people was infectious, laughter always just waiting to bubble over at any time.

One weekend I was in Quito picking up supplies and happened to notice an obviously well-to-do Ecuadorian woman standing on a street corner.  She was wrapped in furs and draped in jewelry glittering of diamonds and gold.  Her look was sour and countenance so sad.

The contrast was so stunning, the apprentices in material poverty but filled with joy.  This woman burdened with wealth, hunkered down in melancholy and  stress.

Then a real happiness test came along.  One day the country’s economy literally shut down.  I mean almost everything shut down.

Gas ran out and all the banks were closed. The shaman and the apprentices lost every penny they had in the banks. Upon learning this, the shaman called for a mingo (this word means circle and represents a meeting) where he performed a ceremony of thanks for all the change that these losses would bring.

Later after the meeting we sat on the front porch and looked out, over this view.

Ecuador-Thanksgiving

We watched the setting sun, dropping in a burst of purple and mauve. The wind was warm and a symphony of insects gave a serenade. This now penniless shaman looked over and whispered. “Life is good”.

Changes in his financial life did not rob him of a penny’s worth of living.  He felt what others considered a loss with gratitude.

I can’t put in words what a sense of peace and harmony rolled over us as we looked down at the lushness of the valley below, the mists rising, the waterfalls folding in lacy cascades, bird songs trilling through the clear air. The river although far below us was a great bubbling sound along with the strangeness of some of the bird calls. This was a joy we had not felt since we were kids.

As Merri and I watch this new turmoil unfold our thankfulness is heightened because we know that what seems to be the worst of times can always bring forth the best of things.

The gratitude attitude is healthy and productive so we gain when we learn to be thankful, about everything…even though events may seem negative at the time.

In the case of Ecuador, we used the turmoil to pick up incredible real estate bargains.  In act it was the impetus that started an entirely new career for us… Ecuador real estate tours.   We had moved to Ecuador to learn more ways on how to have natural goof health.  That disaster led to a business where we helped thousands of North Americans and Ecuadorians  do business together.

There is such beauty on this earth and in this world but at this time the flood of sensationalism  can easily obscure our understanding.

Turn into the inner silence that connects us all and follow a path of gratefulness towards good things that this change is bringing right now.

Now you have time!  Do some of the things you have always wanted but did not have a chance. 

For example, learn Spanish at home.

COVID-19 in Ecuador


This week Dr. Andres Cordova shares information about the Coronavirus in Ecuador.

Last week the government of Ecuador announced that all flights to Ecuador will be suspended starting Sunday, March 15, 2020 at 23:59.

CORONAVIRUS IN ECUADOR

Passengers arriving to Quito from abroad this past Saturday night were greeted by rather few people. The large welcoming parties, the balloon-holding children and even the eventual mariachis where nowhere to be seen.

Arrival hall Quito airport

I was there to pick up Isabella, my daughter, who was returning from Spain in due haste, just as her university in Pamplona and the whole country was shutting down. She managed to do so in the nick of time. Soon afterwards, Ecuador would start to shut down too.

As Isabella came out from migration and baggage-claim, a procession of angry parents irrupted into it eerily chanting “we want our children”.  They had been waiting for hours as the plane bringing their youngsters went into special quarantine protocol when a couple of passengers showed strong COVID-19 symptoms.

Isabella is now under quarantine for the next 14 days, in the comfort of home and her wonderful mother’s care. She’s doing a color-by-numbers painting, taking courses online and binging on Netflix.

In my case, this extra time at home is allowing me to better take care of the neighborhood birds. I started a bird-feeding project in the terrace right out of my window. I have commissioned a custom birdhouse which should be ready in the next few days.

It is lovely to work to the sound of the little birds chirping. They perch in the trees a few meters from my window waiting for the daily dose of water and birdseed.

ecuador

The sobering picture, though, is that this pandemic is having profound health, economic and social consequences.

However, as opposed to when the “Spanish Flu” hit us almost a century ago, infecting about 500 million people and laying waste to millions, now the world is much better prepared, hence all the measures taken around the world, including vast communication campaigns.

While it can be argued that some measures in some places were taken too late or that due preparedness was lacking, there’s no arguing that today we are in substantially better condition to tackle pandemics like the coronavirus one from what we were decades, let alone a century ago. Hong King and South Korea are two examples of rather successful management of the crisis.

Ecuador’s first reported coronavirus case involved an asymptomatic woman that had arrived from Madrid on February 14. Once the 70 year old patient was isolated and her whereabouts traced, it turned up that she had an enviable social life, having visited many places, making contact with dozens of family and friends.

Currently Ecuador has 155 confirmed coronavirus cases with 235 under watch. Two deaths have been reported thus far.

Guayaquil has the most cases with 78, followed by Samborondón, Babahoyo, Quito and Manta with 23, 9, 8 and 7 confirmed cases, respectively.

Among the several measures taken by the Ecuadorian government to hinder the growth of coronavirus cases, these are the main ones:

  • Declaring a State of Emergency for Ecuador’s Health System
  • Implement a curfew between 11pm and 5am
  • Implement a 14-day quarantine for all travelers coming in from coronavirus hotspots
  • Classes and assistance to non-essential workplaces have been suspended
  • Supermarkets, drug-stores and other essential suppliers can’t have over 50% of their people-holding capacity at anytime
  • Circulation is restricted, with safe passage being issued for people in key work-sectors or those taking care of the elderly or children
  • Incoming international flights have been suspended

This pandemic, however brutal, may prompt important changes and advances in many areas. Even a before and after in many ways. For one, it is sure to give a rather large boost to the work-from-home idea. It will also bolster the protocols for effectively managing outbreaks from their very onset. Also, it will give the planet a break from some pollution.

The financial and social costs will linger for some time. The pandemic will very likely push the global economy into a tailspin, it has already wreaked havoc on the stock markets, making people focus better on sheer fundamentals.

We are resilient and will come out of this sobered and better. We are seeing so many acts of kindness and generosity, so many corporations stepping up to the plate. As a people person it can only strengthen my faith in humanity.

Stay safe,

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Three Days

Now you have time!  Do some of the things you have always wanted but did not have a chance. 

For example, learn Spanish at home.

To make this possible for the next four days we are offering an incredible $110.95  Stay-At-Home discount.  Our super Spanish course is normally $149.95.

From now through Easter Sunday April 12, 2020, you can order the entire online course for only $39.

You can learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.

In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish.  Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines.  They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.

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, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration 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 Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

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 these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

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”.

In an incredibly short time 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.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

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.   The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but now you have time to do some of the things you have always wanted but did not have a chance. 

To make this possible for the next four days we are offering an incredible $110.95  Stay-At-Home discount.  Our super Spanish course is normally $149.95.

From now through Easter Sunday April 12, 2020, you can order the entire online course for only $39.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

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.

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!” Nadine Taylor

Ecuador Beach Condo $15,000


Subscriber Don Lee sent this tragic note that could create an immense opportunity for you.

Gary

A Coastal Ecuador “Special Opportunity”

This was the amazing view in March 2016 from my beautiful new condo at Jama Campay, on the Manabi coast of Ecuador.  We had just finished decorating and furnishing the new condo and it was gorgeous! It even has a jacuzzi on the balcony.

View from the balcony at Jama Campay

This spacious (1275 ft2) two-bedroom, second floor condo has a spectacular, view of the ocean.

Living Room at Jama Campay

It is in a 3-level, 7-unit condo building in the coastal development of Jama Campay.

Kitchen 1 at Jama Campay

Right at the end of highway from Quito you hit the coast at Pedernales. Head south a bit and you come to the little town of Jama. The Jama Campay development is just before the town itself. From Quito, this is the quickest and easiest part of the coast to get to. I was so looking forward to spending time here!

Second Bedroom 1 at Jama Campay

The month after I took the photos above, on April 16, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake hit just offshore. This area was closest to the epicenter and the hardest hit. My beautiful condo was ruined.

You saw it before. Here is the after.

KXGA4195

I removed all the furniture that was salvageable and sold it. The condo is now empty and ready to be repaired.

STUW2952

Now, four years later, we are finally repairing and rebuilding the condo.

LTIE1533

However, it will take money to restore this property to its former glory. And right now I am in the midst of starting a new career and a new business and cash is the one thing I don’t have. That creates a great opportunity for you!

We have an engineering report that shows what needs to be done. We’ve selected a builder to do the work, which will be done over the next several months. Each condo owner needs to pay about US$25,000 towards to restoration expense.

I am willing to sell my condo for $15,000.

For an investment of about $40,000 you can have this condo for half its original cost (and half its resale value) in less than a year.

Send me an email (donaldleeinkuwait@gmail.com) or give me a call (780-625-5584 in Canada) to talk about it.

Quito’s New Metro


This week Dr. Andres Cordova shares information about Quito Ecuador’s new metro.

andres cordova

Dr. Andres Cordova

QUITO’S NEW METRO

With an investment of over $2 billion and 7 years of work, with infrastructure taking place since 2016, Quito’s Metro is about to become a reality.

This is the single largest public transportation project in Ecuador’s history and it could not come at a better time as Quito sorely needs a mass transportation solution.

Due to its geographical circumstances, cradled by mountains that allow it spectacular scenery and year-round spring-like weather, Quito is narrow and long. Going from one extreme to the other is an 80km (50 mile), 2-hour commute.

ecuador

Trains for Quito’s new metro ready to start operational tests

With Phase Two – comprising stations, restaurants, services and more, nearing completion, the underground metro is about to come into operation. It entails 22 kilometers and 15 stations for a 34-minute end to end trip. It will be part of a transportation hub that will include trolleys and buses to cover final destinations.

It is expected that the Quito Metro will transport upwards of 400.000 passengers per day contributing mightily to ease traffic, lower pollution and making the city more accessible in a more expedient way.

The Quito Metro will also bolster commerce and urban development, especially around each station.

Ten international companies are interested in managing Quito’s metro operation, including companies from Brazil, France, Spain, Italy and Germany.

The Quito Metro will also bolster commerce and urban development, especially around each station. This is an important element for those looking for real estate opportunities.

There will be one station in Colonial Quito, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was originally slated for San Francisco Plaza but after archeological remains were found during the first dig, the site of the station was moved two blocks to the south.

Having recently surpassed Guayaquil to claim the title as Ecuador’s most populous city with over 2.2 million inhabitants, Quito will benefit extraordinarily from the new metro, that is to start operating in October.

For starters, it will no doubt make quite a few of its half a million cars less needed. I trust the new metro also fosters more pedestrian friendly or pedestrian exclusive streets, which is a step in the right direction to make cities more enjoyable.

All the best,

Andrés Córdova

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

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.   The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but now you have time to do some of the things you have always wanted but did not have a chance. 

To make this possible for the next four days we are offering an incredible $110.95  Stay-At-Home discount.  Our super Spanish course is normally $149.95.

From now through Easter Sunday April 12, 2020, you can order the entire online course for only $39.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

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.

Ecuador Rental Evictions


This week Dr. Andres Cordova shares information about Ecuador rentals and evictions.

Many subscribers have purchased, or plan to, an Ecuador house now to rent, with the idea of moving in and establishing residence later.  This is a great idea, if you have a good renter.

As is the case everywhere, if a renter is not good, honest or capable of paying their rent, landlords need the ability to evict the tenant.  Andres explains the rules of eviction in Ecuador here.

andres cordova

Dr. Andres Cordova

TENANT EVICTION IN ECUADOR

A great tenant can make a world of a difference with timely payments, responsible upkeeping of the property and a hassle-free relationship. A good tenant provides cash-flow and for the case of investments that appreciate, which pretty much the norm in Ecuador with real estate, makes them all the more worthwhile.

A bad tenant, on the other hand, can be a source of frustration and economic loss.

Some tenants may be well natured but may have come into circumstances where they can’t pay rent on a timely basis. Others may indulge in being delinquent. This is why tenant screening is important.

While most tenants will leave voluntarily and in a timely case when so asked, some will not.

For cases of delinquent, destructive or unruly tenants, or when the property is to be sold or has been sold, Ecuadorian legislation provides remedies through an eviction process.

Here is a brief overview of the cases when you can evict a tenant and the process to do so.

First, please take note in order to best support your rights as a landlord, there must be a written lease executed in at least three copies by both sides and recorded at a notary.

Now some evictions can be handled by a notary, making the process faster and less burdensome. To this end the lease should include the acceptance of the parties to submit to notification processes at notary level.

Evictions can be handled by notaries in three distinct cases: when the term of the lease is about up, when the property has been sold or when the property will undergo important renovations or is to be demolished. For other cases such as delinquent tenants, the process is done through the courts.

Most leases, especially residential, will be understood to automatically renew upon expiration of the term, unless one of the parties (but especially the landlord) formally notifies the other that the lease will not be renovated with at least 90 days anticipation. In this case, to be on record, the notification should be handled through the notary’s office.

Likewise, when a closing has taken place and the tenant needs to come out or when extensive renovations or a demolition are scheduled. In each case a petition executed by a lawyer must be presented along with the respective support documents and information: lease, deed or renovation or demolition permits (where applicable), address where the notification is to take place, etc.

For cases where the tenant has been late or delinquent in two or more payments, has repeatedly violated the terms of the lease, has been conducting illegal activities in the property or has gravely damaged it, a court process is needed for the eviction, In all cases the tenant will be notified and given 90 days to vacate upon the landlord making the case.

In these last cases the process can be burdensome. I recommend to always have leases in writing, with all appropriate terms and conditions and duly recorded at a notary’s office. To only receive payment via check, deposit or transfer (not in cash) and to be on record with the tenant regarding any claim, request or dispute (this can be via email).

All the best,

Andrés Córdova

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Three Days

Now you have time!  Do some of the things you have always wanted but did not have a chance. 

For example, learn Spanish at home.

To make this possible for the next four days we are offering an incredible $110.95  Stay-At-Home discount.  Our super Spanish course is normally $149.95.

From now through Easter Sunday April 12, 2020, you can order the entire online course for only $39.

You can learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.

In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish.  Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines.  They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.

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, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration 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 Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

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 these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

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”.

In an incredibly short time 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 .

Coming Up Roses


Ecuador roses still come up roses.

I am pleased to say that after a year’s hiatus, I have found a new rose suppler, and the Ecuador roses are even better than before.  I have ordered several dozens myself and have really been amazed at how these premium roses look and last.

The last two dozen arrived early last week.  I put one bouquet in our dining room.

I put a vase full in our kitchen and scattered more in small vases around the house.

Not only have they been outstandingly beautiful, the service by this new supplier, Hugh Prather, has been outstanding.

A subscriber recently sent this note that describes why I am so happy with Hugh’s service:

Hi Gary, I hope this finds you well.

I am writing to tell about the experience I had with Hugh Prather as it was you who recommended him.

I ordered 100 roses to give to a group of ladies that are coming to a Valentines dinner tonight.

The order was delivered on time as promised. The issue was that only 50 roses arrived. I contacted Hugh immediately as well as Fedex to find out what had happened to the other 50.  Even though it was late at night in Ecuador, Hugh responded within minutes. He assured me that he would drill down the following morning and “make it right”.

The next morning there was a follow up email telling me that 50 roses would be delivered in time for my dinner…..They just arrived.
I thought it important that I told about Hugh’s amazing customer service. I was blown away!

Warm regards.  Marc Sandercombe

I expect we’ll be reminding you before the holidays of these wonderful roses, but you can order anytime at www.ecuadorusaroses.com

Ecuador – US Relations Improve


This week Dr. Andres Cordova shares information about how Ecuador has improved its US relations.

Dr. Andres Cordova

US AND ECUADOR IMPROVE RELATIONS

Last week, February 12 2020 when, under the auspices of the recently appointed Ecuadorian Ambassador to the United States, Ivonne Baki, presidents Lenin Moreno of Ecuador and the US President held a bilateral meeting.

The meeting had likely been in the works for months, as they usually are, and the newly assigned ambassador surely held a key role in making it happen in due haste.

This meeting could not have come at a better time for embattled President Moreno.

The White House announcement for the meeting states:

“President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will welcome President Lenin Moreno Garcés and First Lady Rocio González de Moreno of the Republic of Ecuador to the White House on February 12, 2020.  This visit is an opportunity to expand the new and positive bilateral relationship that the United States has built with Ecuador.  We look forward to discussing ways to strengthen our ties with Ecuador to foster democracy and prosperity in the Western Hemisphere.”

Among many key issues on the table, including Venezuela, was that of a Free Trade Agreement between the US and Ecuador, expanded cooperation in security and the fostering of private investments.

From front to back and then from left to right:  President Lenin Moreno, First Lady Rocío González de Moreno, Minister of Defense Oswaldo Jarrín, Ambassador Ivonne Baki, Agriculture Minister Xavier Lazo, Chief of Staff Juan Sebastián Roldán, Secretary of State José Valencia, and Ministry of Production Iván Ontaneda

While Moreno had been Correa’s Vice President in his first term and the incumbent in our last elections, he gradually began to turn away from the antics of the “21st Century Socialism” embraced by Correa (albeit in a lighter version), the Cuban-bred franchise that through Hugo Chavez and Venezuela’s fat wallet (at the time) kind-of spread like wildfire in Central and South America.

While there’s quite a road ahead, there’s been substantial steps taken to strengthen our institutions and judicial system and to foster more orthodox economic policies. This has certainly been key for this meeting and reinforcement of mutual ties.

After the meeting, the White House released a statement that in a key part reads:

“President Trump applauded President Moreno’s stewardship of Ecuador to achieve a peaceful and democratic transition away from “21st century socialism,” to a democratic society focused on the defense of basic rights and a free market economy with a strong foundation in growth and job creation.  The United States will continue supporting President Moreno’s efforts to implement much-needed economic reforms to strengthen the economy, balance public finances, and revive growth in Ecuador.”

This has provided a boost to President Moreno and further encouragement to our economic players.

Ecuador and the United States executed a Memorandum of Understanding under Trump’s Growth in the Americas Initiative that seeks to foster private sector infrastructure investment in Latin America and the Caribbean, with expanded cooperation towards shared goals including those of reducing regulatory, legal, procurement, and market barriers to investment and promoting the private sector as the primary engine of growth.

We have challenges for sure, just as the next country. Notwithstanding, I assert that Ecuador is a vibrant country with a young population that grows at a healthy rate, vast natural resources and many geographic advantages. We have a great climate year-round and perhaps what may be the warmest and most welcoming people. We have relatively low cost of living, good health care and among the very best value and opportunities in real estate when compared to our Latin America peers group.

If you are interested in a visa, in real estate opportunities, including rental opportunities or any Ecuador-related element, do send us a line. We are here to help.

Please send a note to Gary@garyascott.com with Ecuador in the subject line.

All the best,

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Three Days

Now you have time!  Do some of the things you have always wanted but did not have a chance. 

For example, learn Spanish at home.

To make this possible for the next four days we are offering an incredible $110.95  Stay-At-Home discount.  Our super Spanish course is normally $149.95.

From now through Easter Sunday April 12, 2020, you can order the entire online course for only $39.

You can learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.

In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish.  Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines.  They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.

Merri teaching a Super Spanish course in Florida.

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, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration 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 Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

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 these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

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”.

In an incredibly short time 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.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

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.   The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but now you have time to do some of the things you have always wanted but did not have a chance. 

To make this possible for the next four days we are offering an incredible $110.95  Stay-At-Home discount.  Our super Spanish course is normally $149.95.

From now through Easter Sunday April 12, 2020, you can order the entire online course for only $39.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

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.

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!” Nadine Taylor

How To For Ecuador Passports


This week Dr. Andres Cordova shares information about how to get an Ecuador passport.

andres cordova

Dr. Andres Cordova

OBTAINING AN ECUADORIAN PASSPORT

There are many reasons why one may wish to obtain a second passport, from freer travel and banking options to avoiding foreign policy blow back, or more fully embracing new horizons as an expat.

I obtained a Spanish passport several years ago. My mother and grandmother are from Malaga, in the Andalucía region in the south of Spain, and this allowed me to request Spanish citizenship and the passport has sure come in handy. For starters, it’s avoided me the lengthy and cumbersome Schengen Visa process required for Ecuadorians. Dual citizenship has certainly helped me.

My daughter also has a Spanish passport. She’s currently studying in Pamplona, Spain. While she’s a truly accomplished athlete, thankfully she’s not planning on running with the bulls anytime soon. Smile.

Now, it appears that soon I may not need or wish to rely on my Spanish passport to travel to Europe. A few months ago the Ecuadorian Foreign Affairs Minister announced that he expects that there will be a Shengen Visa waiver for Ecuadorian passport bearers starting in mid 2020. That would be great.

ecuador

Foreigners may qualify and apply for Ecuadorian passport after three years in Ecuador under a resident visa.

The process requires an application form, three passport size headshots against a white background, a birth certificate, a copy of the passport and Ecuadorian cedula and a police record from the place or places where the applicant has resided in the past 5 years.

Also, the applicant must submit to authorities proof of economic means. This can be property titles as well as bank and credit card statements, among other.

Furthermore, the applicant must present certificates to show that it does not owe municipal, social security and state taxes. Finally, a migratory movement certificate will be needed.

There will be an interview where the applicant must have some basic knowledge of Ecuador, including its national symbols. Applicants would do well to prepare for the interview. In the interview the applicant must express the reasons why he/she seeks Ecuadorian nationality. There will be some questions regarding Ecuador that the applicant must answer in Spanish. If you’d like to apply for an Ecuadorian passport and have reservations about the Spanish element, let us know as we can guide you effectively.

Once the application has been favorably processed, a brief of the application is to be published in the press, after which, in case there’s no opposition, the nationality is awarded.

The application carries a $50 duty. Upon approval, a $750 additional duty will apply. Senior citizens (those 65 or older) pay 50% of these duties.

This is a brief overview of the process. If you have any specific questions, please let us know. We are here to help.

Best regards,

Andrés Córdova

This week Dr. Andres Cordova shares information about the diversity in Ecuador.

Dr. Andres Cordova

MEGADIVERSE ECUADOR

As per Conservation International, Ecuador ranks among the 17 megadiverse countries on earth, that with an area no bigger than 10% of the world’s total, are home to 70% of all known species.

ecuador

Hummingbird near Mindo

Many factors contribute to the breathtaking biodiversity of Ecuador. We have sun-kissed coasts, stunning highlands, lush jungles and the fabled Galapagos Islands, deemed to be among the last remaining natural areas in near pristine condition.

There are many factors that strongly contribute to Ecuador being host to such diversity, for starters, being in the equator allows Ecuador to have 12 hours of sunlight per day, day after day. Also, many different altitudes create microclimates that host different plant and animal species. Geographic barriers like the mighty Andes, also contribute to this diversity.

ecuador

Blue Footed Bobbies in Anconcito, near Salinas

We have over 17,000 species of flowering plants, including 4,000 species of orchids out of which 1,700 are endemic to Ecuador. Also, 1,600 bird species that account for 15% of all known bird species worldwide and double of that found in the European Continent. Also, 350 reptile and 400 amphibian species can be found here; all amidst breathtaking surroundings.

No wonder then that Ecuador was awarded as South America’s Leading Green Destination by the World Travel Awards. Approximately 20% of Ecuador is protected by 44 nature reserves and national parks.

ecuador

Colorful insect near Baños

Among them the Yasuni National Park, where every square kilometer is estimated to have more tree species than in all of North America and where each acre may contain over 70,000 species of insects.

We also have jaguars, pumas, wild pigs, tapirs, deer, spectacled bears, armadillos and several monkey species.

ecuador

Deer near near Baños

The Galapagos Islands, 97% of which are a national park, have among the highest concentration of endemic species in the world, among them 80% of the birds, 97% of the reptiles and 30% of the plants. Their isolation from the continent created a unique microcosmos where species evolved unhindered.

This is where Charles Darwin made important observations that led his landmark work The Origin of Species. BTW, talking about authors, Herman Melville, of Moby Dick fame, was a visitor of the Galapagos.

I enjoy traveling through Ecuador taking pictures of people and places. Just recently I’ve spent time in Baños, Mindo, Riobamba and Papallacta (termal waters), to name a few.

I invite you to explore Ecuador, a country of wonderful natural and cultural landscapes.

I am including some pictures,

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.

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, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration 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 Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

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 these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

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”.

In an incredibly short time 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.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

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.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

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.

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!” Nadine Taylor
