The Right Direction (Dirección) When You’re Wrong


Here’s why communication (comunicación)  in Spanish is more important than perfection (perfección).

Regional dialects, called regiolects, in any language, mean we are always wrong even when we are right.

Have you ever been up a well worn path like this?

farm

One day, at our North Carolina farm, one of our neighbors asked me this question.

“Can I go up this nar path and get some of your flares?”

sunflowers

Here I am with flowers at the end of this narrow) path.

Huh?

What the neighbor meant was, “”Can I go up this narrow path and get some of your flowers.”  Nar is narrow and flowers, flares, in the Ashe county sub regiolect of the Appalachian regiolect.

These regiolects are one reason why, when it comes to speaking a second language, communication is more important than perfection.

If you were traveling from your home to Ashe county North Carolina, would you first take lessons in how the people speak in that area?

Probably not, even though wherever you go, whatever language you speak, you will speak differently than locals because of regional dialects.

I was thinking about this after reviewing this six minute video that shows how almost all English words that end in ION are the same in Spanish.

Gary-scott-super-spanish

Click here for a 6 minute video on how to pronounce ION words.

The video was recorded spontaneously so I was throwing out unsuspected ION words to the translator.   When I reached the word “vaccination”, he replied “no that word is vacuna”.

I later discovered that the Standard Spanish word for vaccination is in fact vacunación.

My translator, (of Cuban decent) had responded based on his perfect Spanish in a regiolect.

Most of us speak in some form of regional dialect, also known as a regiolect or topolect.

Each such dialect is a distinct form of a language spoken in a particular geographical area.

My wife Merri grew up in Georgia and speaks a very muted Southern American English.

A discerning listener can still pick up a trace of Northwest English when I speak. This is North American English spoken in the states of Washington and Oregon, even Idaho and to a degree in British Columbia, Canada.  Pacific Northwest English is a sub dialect of Western American English as is California English.

Three of our children, raised in England, speak British English with a hint of West Country English.

Whew that’s a lot of subsets, but they are all bound by one common fact.  Each of us from Vancouver Canada, Portland Oregon, San Francisco, California, Macon Georgia and Bristol England all understand one another.

As opposed to a national dialect, a regional dialect is spoken in one particular area of a country. In the USA, regional dialects include Appalachian, New Jersey and Southern English, and in Britain, Cockney, Liverpool English and ‘Geordie’ (Newcastle English). . . .

In contrast to a regional dialect, a social dialect is a variety of a language spoken by a particular group based on social characteristics other than geography. (Jeff Siegel, Second Dialect Acquisition. Cambridge University Press, 2010)

Linguists refer to so-called Standard English as a dialect of English, which from a linguistic point of view, is no more ‘correct’ than any other form of English.  From this point of view, the monarchs of England and teenagers in Los Angeles and New York all speak dialects of English.

Wherever we are… it’s likely that our speaking is wrong for the area, even though its perfectly correct.

Yet most people fail to learn a second language, because they fear they will say something incorrectly.

Eliminating fear is important in learning a second language.  A study by the CIA to find what type of person learns a second language fastest found that neither age nor language proficiency seemed to predict how quickly a person picks up the language.  The fastest learners showed both the greatest motivation to learn and a willingness to use their second language at every opportunity despite being bad to start.

Our Super Spanish course provides 17 simple lessons that give learners a vocabulary of 4005 words.  That’s right, in just an hour or two, English speakers can have a full vocabulary of Spanish words because… they already know these words.

No memorization, except the 17 simple lessons  is required.  Actually you only have to learn 16 lesson because you now know the first… that almost all words that end in ION are the same.  That’s the ION lesson… short, simple, memorable, but as you’ll see profound.

This is a deep lesson because so many powerful words end in ION.  Just knowing this one lesson allows you to pack a wallop when it come to communicating in Spanish.

So, let’s have a mission (misión in Spanish) to improve our lives by gaining an education (educación) in being bilingual with the positive power of ION.

Super Spanish provides a perfect way to start communicating in Spanish.  Today, every time you find yourself saying a word that ends in ION… stop and also say the word in Spanish.

Perfection (perfección) in Spanish requires a contradiction (contradicción).  Perfection (perfección) in Spanish requires imperfection (imperfección) to begin and positive IONs can create a perfect initiation (iniciación).

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

Instant $110 discount on the course!

The “Learn Spanish in Three Day Course” is now available online.

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

Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own.  You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all.

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

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

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

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

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

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

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

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

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

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

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.  Normally $149, this is available at the highly reduced price of $79. Simply use coupon code SPANISH110 at checkout.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

Spanish Communication (Comunicación) Made EZ


Here’s how to begin communicating in Spanish in just hours.

Start communicating.  Communication (comunicación)  is more important than perfection (perfección).

Ecuador real estate for sale

My wife Merri teaching Super Spanish in Ecuador. 

Merri and I took thousands of people to Ecuador… even bought this small colonial hotel to house them.  We had to communicate in Spanish in a hurry!

This was a horrible situation (situación) for me.  Merri had taught herself Spanish, but I did not speak a word.

I was investment publisher.  For decades we took thousands of readers to places like Switzerland, Denmark, London, Isle of Man,  Austria and such to learn about investing opportunities there.   Then due to an invitation by an Ecuadorian reader, I spotted the best investing potential I ahd seen in decades… Ecuador real estate.   We started taking thousands of readers there.  I had to learn Spanish in a hurry.  So did our clients who were buying property and moving there.

What a panic!  I needed to be able to communicate in Spanish.

The thought of grappling with the terror of Spanish grammar… derivation of verbs and such was almost overwhelming.  In school, I aced creative writing, but almost flunked out English grammar.  I could never diagram a sentence and had somehow learned to communicate without understanding terms like Abstract Noun – Attributive Adjectives – Intransitive Verbs… Predicates and so forth.

“To learn Spanish”, I thought, I’d have to deal with such terms and on top of that learn to derivate verbs.

Then I discovered a secret held by Merri… Lozanov.”

lozanov

Georgi Lozanov, was a Bulgarian scientist, neurologist, psychiatrist, psychologist and educator.  He is known as ‘the father of accelerated learning as he developed a learning/teaching theory based on his early-1960s studies.

According to Wikipedia: During the 1970s his theories and method were carefully analyzed and evaluated worldwide by a committee on languages learning and eventually certified by Unesco as “the most cultural integral and effective learning method” in Second Language Acquisition.

Merri’s secret was that Lozanov had only been allowed to visit the USA one time and taught only a handful of  students.  She was one of those students and had used what she learned to teach herself Spanish so she could run her import business that supplied Mexican crafts to stores operated by Lilly Pulitzer.

Merri told me… “forget the grammar”.  “Forget the memorization”, she said.

So we went way beyond Lozanov, adding 4005 words English-Spanish words and a non derivative system so Spanish communication can be learned in just days with little memorization and no derivation of verbs!

ION words for example are one reason that very little memorization is needed when it comes to speaking Spanish.

Our Super Spanish course provides 17 simple lessons that give learners a vocabulary of 4005 words.  That’s right, in just an hour or two, English speakers can have a full vocabulary of Spanish words because… they already know these words.

Actually you only have to learn 16 lesson because you now know the first… that almost all words that end in ION are the same in English and Spanish.  That’s the ION lesson… short, simple, memorable, but as you’ll see profound.

This is an important lesson because so many powerful words end in ION.  Just knowing this one lesson allows you to pack a wallop when it come to communicating in Spanish.

So, let’s have a mission (misión) to improve our lives by gaining a bilingual education (educación) with the positive power of ION.

There are a multitude of benefits, practical, but also emotional, spiritual, physical, mental and intellectual, that come from learning a language.

Let’s add to our Spanish skills by knowing one more important word in Spanish… SITUATION (situación).

The Ecuador retirement situation is good.

La situación de retiro en Ecuador es buena.

Here’s a trick that can put you on a Spanish fast track. 

Use Spanish words in your English dialogue is a great way to start learning Spanish because there is no fear.

This tactic gives you a perfect way to start communicating in Spanish.

Today, every time you find yourself saying a word that ends in ION… stop and also say the word in Spanish.  Look for situations where you can use the word situation!

Perfection in Spanish requires a contradiction (contradicción).  To become good you have to be willing to start bad.

Perfection in Spanish requires imperfection (imperfección) so begin adding Spanish ION words when you speak.   This is a great Spanish  initiation (iniciación).

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

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

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

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

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.  Normally $149, this is available at the highly reduced price of $79. Simply use coupon code SPANISH110 at checkout.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

Applying the concepts of Super Thinking to spotting trends over the past 45 years has helped thousands of our readers make and save millions.  The success of our readers has been a driving force in our lives yet we have always wanted to do more.  We have continued looking deeper at ways we can share how to have income, stability, good health and contentment.

We have heard many inspirational story from delegates at our Super Thinking Writer’s Camps.

See more details and the stories about our Writer’s Camps here.

Spanish is Another Benefit. Spanish is the second most spoken romantic language in the world. There are many benefits to speaking Spanish because chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives near you.

With Lozanov’s modified system, you will learn how to think and learn more powerfully.

In the Spanish portion of the course you gain vocabulary fluency. Fluency in a language is considered to unfold when you know 1,200 words. You gain over 4,005 words in the Super Thinking + Spanish course. Let me share just one of the 17 tactics Merri teaches that gives you hundreds of Spanish words in less than three minutes.

Here are the hundreds of Spanish words in Lesson #1:

All words in Spanish and English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. For example action is accion, education educacion, manipulation, manipulacion, etc.

Now you already literally know (actually recall) hundreds of Spanish nouns. This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons you gain. The next lesson teaches you easily how to pronounce each of these nouns. Then you learn in a third lesson almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The Super Spanish helps you start speaking and understanding Spanish right away. This can help you speak Spanish faster and make any traditional Spanish course easier and more effective.

A Livescience.com article helps explain why this course works and how delegates are creating Spanish sentences by the first lunch break and can communicate well in Spanish after just three days. This article by Jeremy Hsu, LiveScience Senior Writer, is entitled “CIA Seeks Anyone, Anyone Who Can Speak 2 Languages”.

This article explains how the CIA and US Foreign Service used tests to train up cognitive processes related to language learning, such as the ability to hold information in the brain while using it for learning. The tests sought to predict those who can succeed despite everything stacked against them.

The article says: From studies of Spanish-speaking immigrants, neither age nor language proficiency seemed to predict how quickly the immigrants picked up English. Instead, the fastest learners showed both the greatest motivation to learn and a willingness to use English at every opportunity despite being bad at it (at first).

Super Thinking plus Spanish works because the course starts you speaking and thinking Spanish all the time so you can use and/or think Spanish every day… from the beginning. In this way your education grows even when Spanish is not being spoken daily.

Spotting new trends and applying them in investing and self publishing micro businesses have brought Merri and me a strong and continual flow of income through good times and bad. Super Thinking and the updates in this seminar can help you gain this in a fulfilling and beneficial way. You benefit from the latest… and perhaps strongest… of all the trends we have stumbled upon.

Delegates tell us again and again how much the Super Thinking & Spanish course has helped them.

How Super Thinking + Spanish Began

By Merri Scott

Merri Scott

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fluency by Association

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

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

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

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

Well, of course it could. And it did.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Roots of Super Memory

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

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

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

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

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

No One Knows


No one knows what the future will bring… but glimpses can help us prepare for profit in business and investing.

Photo from National Geographic article “The Calm Before the Wave”.

I took extra note of this February 2012 National Geographic article… “The Calm Before the Wave” because the house above is at Canon Beach, Oregon very near where Merri and I stay often with our kids, grandkids and my mom.  Wow!  We could be sitting there enjoying the Pacific and get wiped out.  We simply cannot know… in investing… in business…. in life.  They now have Tsunami Warnings but when we asked how long would a person have once the warning has sounded and were told “5 minutes”…well we felt a little disheartened!

However we can take advantage of the future unknowns by extrapolating what might take place. 

At our Quantum Thinking + Investing and Business  Course we study potential problems that could hit the world in 2102.  Then we ask… “What businesses and investments will rise busy from each catastrophe?”

Take for example the #2 concern on the list we’ll review… another type of tsunami… an economic disaster that is the Euro’s disintegration.  The National Geographic article “The Calm Before the Wave” shows two potential tsunami disasters that could happen at anytime… and are growing increasingly likely.

cities from water

What effects will happen if a tsunami hits Hong Kong?

Here are excerpts from the February 2, 2102 National Geographic article “Calm Before the Wave” which is about potential tsunamis (bolds are mine): “I think all subduction zones are guilty until proven otherwise,” says Kerry Sieh. Sieh, director of the Earth Observatory at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University, is one of the world’s leading paleoseismologists—he plumbs the geologic record for evidence of ancient earthquakes and tsunamis. He’s a delicately built man of 61, with graying, neatly trimmed hair. The historical record—and especially the modern instrumental record—is too short, he says. It absolves long-dormant faults around the world that very likely could generate killer tsunamis. “We must assume every long subduction zone is capable of producing great earthquakes and tsunamis,” Sieh says. “We can’t assume that any megathrust is gradually and harmlessly releasing strain.”

Sieh pulls up a map on his computer. “This is the Manila Trench,” he says, pointing to a line that begins off the west coast of the Philippines and continues north to Taiwan. “It’s 800 miles long and hasn’t done anything big in 500 years. If it broke in a magnitude 9, it would have very serious consequences along the Chinese coast—the tsunami would focus right on Hong Kong and Macau. We don’t know if it will break, but I think we have to assume that it can. And there are many others.”

Among them is the Cascadia subduction zone, a 600-mile-long offshore fault that runs from northern California to southern British Columbia. Geologists have found sand deposits up and down the coast that were laid down by a tsunami 312 years ago, in 1700. Recent evidence from seafloor sediment cores suggests to some that about 40 earthquakes have occurred along the Cascadia fault zone over the past 10,000 years, an average of one every 250 years; other researchers estimate the recurrence interval at 500 years. When the fault does rupture, most agree, the earthquake could be as large as the one that hit Japan last March, and the tsunami could reach the coast in 20 minutes.

A lot will depend on the season, says Nathan Wood, a geographer with the U.S. Geological Survey in Vancouver, Washington. “The Pacific Northwest coast is sparsely populated for the most part, and many people are less than a mile from high ground,” Wood says. “But in the summer there can be 100,000 people on the coast. We could have tens of thousands of deaths.”

In Washington there are tsunami evacuation signs, tall towers on the beaches to broadcast warnings, and tsunami information booklets in hotel rooms, next to the Gideon Bibles. But evacuation centers are sparse, and not everyone has access to high ground. Ocean Shores, a resort town that NOAA lists as “tsunami-ready,” lies on a narrow peninsula with no high ground and just one two-lane road to safety; 5,500 people live there year-round, many more in the summer. One evening last summer I drove around the town with Jody Bourgeois, a geologist at the University of Washington. “These people are toast, soggy toast,” she said glumly.

Seattle, tucked away in Puget Sound behind the Olympic Peninsula, would probably not be hard hit by the tsunami, though it would certainly feel the shaking from a Cascadia quake. But geologists have discovered smaller, shallower cracks in the crust that extend under Puget Sound. “The picture has just started to come together in the last two decades,” says Bourgeois. “It’s a major, major hazard.” The earthquake from a shallow fault could be extremely destructive, and a moderate tsunami launched right off Seattle might be even more damaging than a giant one off the coast. It’s not clear how often such events happen in Puget Sound. The last one was about a thousand years ago.

The idea is to figure out what disasters could happen.  Then figure our what businesses would be most useful due to the tsunami.  Plus know what you will not want to be holding.  The idea is not to invest in these businesses now but to have a short list.  Research these companies.  Know them.  Be ready to act immediately if a disaster hits.  The list makes us proactive rather than reactive.  Currency tsunami, business tsunami, etc. are all important to research.

Good News Too.  We look at positive scenarios as well… potential for new agreements… new inventions… reduced tensions in markets… currencies and conflict.  Then we calculate IN ADVANCE who will benefit and study this opportunity so we are prepared to react instantly if and when either scenario good or bad unfolds.

So we can anticipate disasters.

We certainly can anticipate all the good that might take place in the year ahead.  We can plan how to invest in each event.  Yet with the power of logic we can never know it all.

Beyond Logic

Logic is a 64 Kilobyte processor in a exponentially expanding Yottabyte world.  After anticipation and planning and research we need to go Beyond Logic.

Our need to know more than we can think is why Part #3 (Part #1 is about investing, Part #2 how to have a micro business) of our Quantum Thinking + Investing and Business Seminar has sessions on Frequency Modulation.  It is important how to tap inner resources for outer expansion in a changing world.   As change comes faster we must become smarter… more flexible and enhance our ability to embrace and understand deeper from the never ending shifts we face.

Frequency Modulation helps us fine tune our intuition so we are more in touch with reality and can translate this knowing into useful action.

Merri developed this program from her study from the Bulgarian education master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better.

This book exposed this fact and made the system so popular that Dr. Lozanov was allowed to visit the US from Bulgaria to teach this system to just a very few people so they could pass on this vital information on how to learn and think in a more natural, powerful way so we can enjoy life and enhanced memory more.

Merri was among those few who learned and is licensed to teach the Lozanov System. She has organized a practical course on how to learn faster and better.

With her modified system, you will learn how to think and learn more powerfully.

The learning systems you gain expands on Dr. Lozanov’s original work and offers new insights into tapping human potential, drawing from ancient and modern tactics for quick learning such as subliminal memory, music, nutrition, and productivity.

There are three scientific reasons why this course can change your learning capacity forever.  By helping integrate brain waves, the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.

Correct brain wave integration enhances the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

FM creates relaxed concentration… a key to happiness, health and success through whole brain thinking that can help improve your business & investing.

This part of the seminar helps investors and business people integrate brain waves so they are more intelligent, intuitive and relaxed.

This workshop shows how to get into and stay in a state of relaxed concentration… a mental state shown to enhance almost every human capability.

FM…  Frequency Modulation/Full Mode Plus

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

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

Frequency Modulation expands the learner’s thinking and information processing ability.

First, you learn how to evoke the power of the senses thus super-charging memory. Ever hear a song from twenty, thirty or forty years past and in a snap know all the words, the tune and remember with whom and where your heard it decades ago? Learn how to use ten cycle music to gain almost super human thinking powers.

Dr. Lozanov was totally committed to learning without stress, to enjoy the thrill of relaxed, leisurely learning. These are just two, whole learning, super-thinking tactics you gain at this course.

What is your desire? Do you want to speak Spanish, French, German, Chinese or any language? Would you like to golf better or accomplish more in school? Would you like to easily, quickly zip through projects, chores, reports? Know what to invest in or what career to follow?  “Quantum Thinking” sessions can help you learn any subject two-to-five times faster, in exciting and innovative ways.

The techniques you gain will help unlock the quantum potential we all possess. This evolutionary program shows how certain types of music can enhance learning and how even altered nutrition can make you a startling 25 percent smarter, how subliminal messages can increase your energy and thinking process, plus much, much more.

This system follows and builds upon what was taught in the Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 books plus includes techniques and strategies that she has gained in her 44 years of global travel and studying with educational masters around the world.

This is a course that shows you how to increase your mental power to better succeed in the 21st century when we can otherwise be overwhelmed by information. The system you gain is built from old and new sources ranging from yoga to contemporary Russian science, and ultimate zone training already used by many Olympic champions.

“Quantum Thinking” presents new ways to use  music to supercharge your mind. The knowledge you gain about smart food and super nutrition allows you to enhance productivity and creativity.

The tactics you gain enhance your ability to absorb… retain and recall information.

Once these concepts of enhancing your mental powers with music are understood, you will know how to create your own program and build new skills at work in study and play.

The science behind this has been explained by Austrian scientist, Karl Pribram.

According to Wikepedia: Pribam is a professor at Georgetown University , and an emeritus professor of psychology and psychiatry at Stanford University and Radford University.

Pribram tries to explain this power we all have within in scientific terms.
Pribam is  a neurosurgeon, who pioneered work on defining the power of our limbic systems, the relationship of the frontal cortex to the limbic system, the sensory-specific “association” cortex of the parietal and temporal lobes, and the classical motor cortex of the human brain.   He is also known for his development of the holonomic brain model of cognitive function and his contribution to ongoing neurological research into memory, emotion, motivation and consciousness.

What the heck is a holonomic brain model?

The answer to that, I fear, is beyond me. An excerpt from the research paper entitled  “Comparison between Karl Pribram’s “Holographic Brain Theory” and more conventional models of neuronal computation”  by Jeff Prideaux might explains why the understanding is complex.

The excerpt says:  Karl Pribram’s holonomic theory reviews evidence that the dendritic processes function to take a “spectral” transformation of the “episodes of perception”. This transformed “spectral” information is stored distributed over large numbers of neurons. When the episode is remembered, an inverse transformation occurs that is also a result of dendritic processes. It is the process of transformation that gives us conscious awareness.

Pribram says that both time and spectral information are simultaneously stored in the brain. He also draws attention to a limit with which both spectral and time values can be concurrently determined in any measurement (Pribram, 1991). This uncertainty describes a fundamental minimum defined by Gabor in 1946 (the inventor of the hologram) as a quantum of information. Dendritic microprocessing is conceived (by Pribram) to take advantage of this uncertainty relation to achieve optimal information processing. Pribram then says that the brain operates as a “dissipative structure” where the brain continually self-organizes to minimize this uncertainty. The next few sections will attempt to explain the concept of the “uncertainty principle” and the concept of “dissipative structures” that self-organize.

In quantum physics, the uncertainty principle can be described in the following way (paraphrased from Pagels, 1982): Consider that you have a device that can simultaneously measure the position and momentum of a single electron. Every time you push a button, the device displays numerical values for the position and momentum. Although, each time you press the button, you will get slightly different measurements for the momentum and position. If enough measurements are taken, then a statistical analysis can be performed. Heisenberg defined the term delta q as indicating the spread or uncertainty of the position measurements around some average value and delta p as indicating the spread or uncertainty of the momentum measurements around some average value (for the series of measurements). He then found that (delta q)x(delta p)>=h where h is Plank’s constant. For a series of measurements, the positions can be expressed as an average +/- some uncertainty. Likewise for the momentum. No matter how good one makes a quantum measuring device, the products of the uncertainties can never be less than Planks constant. For example, if you could build a measuring device that exactly determined the position (where delta q = 0) then you would not be able to determine anything about the momentum (delta p = infinity). There is a similar uncertainty relation for the energy of a particle and the elapsed time. For a series of measurements, the product of the uncertainty of the energy (delta E) and the uncertainty of the elapsed time is always greater or equal to Planks constant. (delta E)x(delta t)>=h.

Communication theory

In communication theory, a variation on the uncertainty principle also holds (Gabor, 1946). The measurement of the frequency can be made with arbitrary precision. Likewise, the measurement of the time of occurrence can be made with arbitrary precision. But there is a limit to the precision when these measurements are taken simultaneously. One can exactly measure either the frequency (of for example a tone) or the time (of occurrence) but not both at the same time. For instance, if the time of occurrence were known (indicating an impulse function) there would be frequency components all up and down the spectrum. If, on the other hand, the frequency information was exactly known, one would not know any information about when it occurred. A single peak (or peak pair if you consider the corresponding negative frequency) in the spectrum implies that the tone has infinite extent in the time domain. Analogously to the quantum uncertainty principle, when frequency and temporal measurements are made simultaneously, there is a limit to the precision possible. Pribram claims that the brain functions as a dissipative structure to seek to decrease this uncertainty in the direction of its theoretical limit.

Dissipative Structures

The second law of thermodynamics holds that the entropy always increases in any isolated system (figure 10). This simply means that if something is left to itself, it will move towards equilibrium…it will move towards maximal disorder…its internal energy state will tend to be minimized. There has not been, to date, any confirmed observation that this law is invalid.

I have printed this report and read it and read it… but it still totally has not sunk in.

However I am getting some clues about how our mind works.

The first clue is that we do not have “a mind”.
Pribam when asked in an interview about the mind said:

Well, I don’t like the term the mind, because it reifies — that means it makes a thing of — something that’s a process. We pay attention, we see, we hear. Those are all mental processes, mental activities. But there isn’t a thing called the mind. There might be something you want to call yourself, but the mind sort of makes something concrete out of something that’s very multifaceted.

This clue is that our mind is not a thing… but a process that takes place in the brain.. body and maybe elsewhere…. at some quantum level.

Life is a continual learning process so anything we do to improve that process is vital to success, fulfillment happiness and reduction of stress.

This never ending process is also dramatically improved by certain types of music. The AARE is the Australian Association for Research in Education, the Australian national association for fostering educational research in Australia.  AARE facilitates contact between educational researchers and supports the development of high quality educational research.

Here are excerpts from this study (bolds are mine):  In his discussion of the historical development of holonomic brain theory Pribram (1986) stated that all “the evidence is coming.  Not only at the neuropsychological level, but at the psychophysical and psychological level, the behavioural level and in quantum physics (there) is a real paradigm shift away from Euclidean geometry that allows for crazy things, even like hypnosis to be so (p.73).”   To many scientists this may appear to be very “soft science” but Pribram appears to believes that the distinction between soft and hard science is not as relevant any more as he sees many fields to be moving in the same direction and the final proof of brain theory will be “mathematically so precise that…there is just no stopping it.”

This study fits into the psychological and behavioural levels that Pribram was talking about.  When I started this type of research I had a notion that if a person had some control over their own behaviour and they were able to be in command of their state of consciousness and never be out of control, they would be operating at a rhythm which would be optimal for them.

By gaining the skill to relax at will and thereby alter the state of consciousness, we can gain more control over our behavior.  Extra control of our body and behavior is a positive force.   The knowledge, derived from consistent results over a period of time becomes even more powerful as it affects confidence and self-esteem.

This new skill permeates and improves our decision making process.

No one knows what the future will bring.  We can get glimpses that help us prepare and we should use logic to prepare in advance… yet we also need to go beyond logic for the extra profit… the magical touch we can all have in life… in business and in investing.

The Huge 2020 Risk

Here is a huge risk that could explode in 2020.

I hope I am wrong… but the numbers are clear.

According to Treasurydirect.com, (1) as of December 26, 2020 the total US public debt was 23 trillion and 845 billion dollars.

This is not a theoretical problem for the future.  This is not something that our children and grandchildren will have to deal with.  This is a problem in the here and now for you and me.

Rising interest rates create a massive problem for every American.

treasury direct

Look at how the interest costs alone have risen to over a half trillion dollars a year.

treasury direct

 

The bad news is that the (US federal debt) is getting bigger….harder to miss.  The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected in 2010 (the debt then was a bit over 14 trillion) that, under law at that time, debt held by the public would exceed $16 trillion by 2020, reaching nearly 70 percent of GDP.

The $7 Trillion Error.

They sure goofed on that.  Here we are… only in 2020 and debt has shot past 23 trillion.

How could the CBO be so wrong? 

The CBO screwed up because they could never imagine that the Fed would push interest rates so low… and keep them there.  The interest rates are so low that the government has been able to borrow more than imagined and still afford the interest.

For example, US Federal government interest last year amounted to around $573 billion.  Yet in 2008 on debt of only $9 trillion +  the interest that year was $451 billion +.

Interest payments in 2017 were 27% higher than they were in 2008.  Yet the debt is over 250% higher.  

Very low interest rates have helped the government borrow.  Low interest has also helped the US stocks reach all time high prices.

The government will resist raising rates because it will ruin their budget, cause a collapse of the stock markets and destroy the US dollar.

Rising interest rates, will create an almost unimaginable debt crisis.  If government interest doubles it is like the $23+ trillion national debt  rising to 46 trillion!  Unless there are some huge tax increase the interest payments are not sustainable.

Learn how to have more freedom and time, less stress, better health care, extra income, greater safety and profit in your savings despite America’s deficits, debt and currency risk.

Fortunately there are secrets that will allow a few to live much better, free of debt and worry despite the decline in the dollar’s purchasing power.   My wife, Merri and I, have traveled, lived, worked and invested around the world for nearly 50 years to gain this information.

Let me share the basics of this data and how we can be of help through 2020.

The first fact behind this secret is that things are really good in the western world.  Despite many problems, we are surrounded by more abundance and greater opportunity than almost anyone has ever enjoyed, anywhere, ever.   To enjoy a fair share of this wealth, all we have to do is understand human nature and learn how to invest in the new economy, as it changes and becomes new, again and again.

Merri and I have made seven huge transitions in the 50 years.  Each has allowed us to always stay ahead of losses that the majority of Americans suffer.  We are in another transition right now and want to share why and what to do so you can stay ahead and live a richer, independent life through 2020 and beyond.

A falling US dollar is one of the greatest risks we have to our independence, safety, health, and wealth, but also brings a window of huge profit as I explain below.   Though the greenback has been strong for a number of years, its strength is in serious jeopardy.  The growing federal deficits increase the national debt and this with rising interest rates propels a growing debt service.

While the Dow Jones Industrial Average passed a record high, the U.S. national debt passed the $20 trillion mark.

The problem is that the Dow will come back down.  National debt will not fall.

The double shock of money fleeing Wall Street and US debt skyrocketing, will destroy the purchasing power of the greenback.

Go to the store even now.  Statistics say inflation is low, but buy some bread or, heaven forbid, some fresh vegetables like peppers or fruit.   Look at the cost of your prescription or hospital bills.  Do something simple like have your car serviced at an auto dealer.  Look at the dollars you spend and you’ll see what I mean.

The loss of the dollar’s purchasing power erodes our independence, our freedom and our savings and wealth as well. 

At the same time, low interest rates by big banks and higher health care costs soak up the ever diminishing income and savings we have left.  According to a Gallup poll, the most unpopular three institutions in America are big corporations & Wall Street banks, HMOs and Congress.

Yet there is little we can do because these institutions are in control.

Over the last 50 years the average income for 90 percent of the American population fell.  Our health system is restricted by a Kafka-esque maze of legislation and insurance regulations that delay, frustrate, and thwart attempts by patients and doctors from proper medical care.  Big banks and corporations restrict our freedom of choice.  The business customer relationships are no longer transactions between free equals.

Banks can trap us in indebtedness at every age from student loans to mortgages to health care costs.  They pay almost nothing on our savings.  They hide unexpected fees and payments in complex and unreadable documents.  Banks and big corporations routinely conceal vital information in small print and then cheat.  Weak regulations and lax enforcement leave consumers with few ways to fight back.  Many of these businesses ranging from cable TV to phone and internet service to health insurance have virtual monopolies that along with deceptive marketing destroys any form of free market.

These same companies control the credit-scoring agencies so if  we don’t pay unfair fees, our credit scores will plunge and we could lose the ability to borrow money, rent an apartment, even to get a job.  Many consumers are forced to accept “arbitration clauses” in lieu of  legal rights.  The alternative is to lose banking, power, and communication services.

Big business has also usurped our privacy.  Internet companies sell our personal data.  Personal information is pulled from WiFi and iPhones track and store our movements.  The government can access this information, sometimes without subpoenas.  There’s a lot that we don’t know, often withheld under the guise of “National Security.”

The glow on Western democratic capitalism has dimmed… or so it seems.  The US, leading the way, is still a superpower with economic, innovation and military might, but the institutions that should serve the people have become flawed or broken.

America’s infrastructure is in shambles.  The nation’s bridges are crumbling, many water systems are filled with toxins, yet instead of spending more to fix this, we build more prisons.  The 2.2 million people currently in  jail is a 500 percent increase over the past thirty years.  60% of the inmates belong to ethnic groups.  Not just non-white ethnic groups are suffering.  Annual death rates are falling for every group except for middle-aged white Americans.  Death rates are rising among this group driven by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse, alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.

America’s middle class is shrinking.  Nearly  half of America’s income goes to upper-income households now.  In 1970 only 29 percent went to this group.  How can we regain our freedom, our happiness and our well being in such a world?

What can we do?

Gain a better, freer life is to combine better health, higher income and greater savings for a happier, more resilient lifestyle. 

Merri and I will celebrate our 50th year of global living, working, investing and researching to find and share ideas on how to have simpler, low stress, healthier, more affluent lifestyles.  Our courses, reports and email messages look at ways to gain:

#1:  Global micro business income.

#2:  Low cost, natural health.

#3:  Safer, more profitable, investments that take little time or cost to buy and hold… so you can focus on earning more instead

Many readers use our services for just one of these three benefits.  They focus only on health or on earning more or on better, easier investing.

28 years ago Merri and I created the International Club as a way for readers to join us and be immersed in all three of these benefits.   The International Club is a year long learning program aimed at helping members earn worry free income, have better affordable good health and gain extra safety and profits with value investments.

Join us for all of 2020 NOW.

The three disciplines, earning, health and investing, work best when coordinated together.  Regretfully the attacks on our freedom are realities of life.  There is little we can do to change this big picture.  However we can change how we care for our health, how we earn and how we save so that we are among the few who live better despite the dollar’s fall.

We start with better lower cost health care.

Club membership begins by sharing ways to be free of the “Secret Hospital Charge Master”.   Just as governments hide truth behind “National Security”, big health care businesses hide medical truths behind “Charge masters”.  Most hospital charge masters are secret because big business does not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen.  Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.

Despite rising health care costs, a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention shows that hospitals are the last place we want to be for good health.  One report shows that hospital-acquired infections alone kills 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital can be worse than what sent them there.  Governments and health care agencies agree  – antibiotic resistance is a “nightmare.”  An antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be spreading in more hospitals than patients know.  About one in every 25 hospitalized patients gets an infection and a report from the Journal of Patient Safety showed that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the country.

Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals.  This is why charge masters are so often secret.  There are few risks to our wealth that are greater than a hospital stay.

I have created three natural health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However you’ll receive this free as club member and save $59.85.

Club members also receive seven workshops and courses on how earn everywhere with at home micro businesses.  We call this our “Live Well and Free Anywhere Program”.   The program contains a series of courses and reports that show ways to earn and be free. These courses and reports are:

  • “International Business Made EZ”
  • “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell”
  • Video Workshop by our webmaster David Cross,
  • The entire weekend “Writer’s Camp” in MP3
  • The report “How to Raise Money Abroad”
  • Report and MP3 Workshop “How to Gain Added Success With Relaxed Concentration”
  • The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”

This program is offered at $299, but is available to you as a club member free.  You save $299 more.

Next, club members participate in an intensive program called the Purposeful investing Course (Pi).  The purpose of Pi is finding value investments that increase safety and profit.  Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing.

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These destroyers of wealth can create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of a Primary Pi Model Portfolio, called the Pifolio.  There are no secrets about this portfolio except that it ignores the stories from economic news (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based mainly on good math that reveals the truth through financial news.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets using my 50 years of global experience and my study of the analysis of four mathematical investing geniuses (and friends).

There are seven layers of tactics in the Pi strategy.

Pi Tactic #1: Determine purpose and good value.

Pi Tactic #2: Diversify 70% to 80% of portfolio equally in good value developed markets.

Pi Tactic #3: Invest 20% to 30% equally in good value emerging markets.

Pi Tactic  #4:  Use trending algorithms to buy sell or hold these markets.

Pi Tactic  #5:  Add spice speculating with ideal conditions.

Pi Tactic  #6: Add spice speculating with leverage.

Pi Tactic  #7:  Add spice speculating with forex potential.

The Pifolio analysis begins with a continual research of international major stock markets that compares their value based on:

#1:  Current book to price

#2:  Cash flow to price

#3:  Earnings to price

#4:  Average dividend yield

#5:  Return on equity

#6:  Cash flow return

#7:  Market history

We combine the research of several brilliant mathematicians and money managers with my years of investing experience.

This is a complete and continual study of what to do about the movement of international major and emerging stock markets.  I want to share this study throughout the next year with you.

This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs.  This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use.  Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.

The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat.  Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.  Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required.  The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.

Pi opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

The Pi subscription is normally $299 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $2299.

Profit from the US dollar’s fall.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

Club members receive a report about opportunity in the  current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.   The dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but when you become a club member you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE.

Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Platinum Dip 2019” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80 and has remained near this level, compared to a range of the 230s only two years ago.

Now there is a new distortion ready to ripen in the year ahead.

These two events are a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I prepared a special report “Platinum Dip 2019”.   The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged precious metal speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.

The low price of silver offers special value now so I want to send you this report because the “Platinum Dip 2018” offers enormous profit potential in 2018.

The report “Platinum Dip 2019” sells for $39.95 but club members receive it free as well.

The $39.95 new “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere Report” is also free.

There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also work well in disaster scenarios.

There are are specific places where you can reduce your living expenses and easily increase your income.  Scientific research has shown that being in such places actually make you smarter and healthier.  Top this off with the fact that they provide tax benefits as well and you have to ask, “Where are these places?”.

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes them special.  Discover seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar places of opportunity.

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not!)

The report is very specific because it describes what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing, right now.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning locally and globally.

This report is available online for $39.99 but International Club members receive it free.

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Four Days


You can learn Spanish in four days because Super Thinking + Spanish course works through the blending of three learning tactics.

spanish-lessons
Here we are with our Godson and Cotacachian family. We have to speak Spanish with them

We have two spaces left for our Super Thinking + Spanish Courses 2010Nov. 4-7. (Starts 9am in Mt. Dora Fl.)  Enroll here. $749.    Couple $999.A delegate wrote about our seminar course:
“The seminar was enjoyable and very informative.  We didn’t expect so much info to come are way i.e.  The theanine has been very helpful and we found our perfect baroque station on the internet. It was all I expected and more.”We receive so many raves like this because of these three little known, but scientifically proven, ways to enhance the speed, accuracy and efficiency of the mind, memory, recall, retention and decision making process.These are not gimmicks or tricks… just advanced education.

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process. At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov when he visited the USA.

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

The third tactic builds on the first two and uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.

We also need Spanish at our North carolina farm as well.  This remote area has many Mexicans who work mostly n the Christmas tree farms.

photo

Christmas tree farm next to our North Carolina farm.

Let me prove to you how this third tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence? You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you know below.

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

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

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

Then the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds). This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of four days you feel comfortable speaking

Spanish without stress!  Spanish is helpful everywhere. Many of the workers in our orange groves only speak…

 

 

 

spanish-lessons


Spanish.  We have 12 acres of oranges so speaking Spanish helps.  Almost everyone can use Spanish now.


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 travelled 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 that you already know 4005 Spanish words.

You 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.

Ecuador Spanish


Creativity, humanitarianism and prosperity come in many forms, but all of them require three things, understanding, communications and inspiration.

ecuador-spanish

We just finished our latest Super Thinking Plus Spanish course in Mt. Dora, Florida.  Here are delegates intent on absorbing Spanish.

Spanish is the second largest language in the world. Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives south of or around you. Yet our language system did not teach us how to communicate with or understand this culture.

Learning Spanish is valuable and important.  Now there is way, to enjoy a long weekend in the cool mountain sun as you learn Spanish at a very affordable price.

ecuador-spanish

Here are the 40 delegates at this course enjoying a coffee break.  Delegates help each other learn.  They came from all over the world…  The USA, Canada, Europe…even South Africa. Sri Lanka & China.

To learn in the sun is fun! Enjoy a week of direct sunlight and solve one of the biggest communications problems that faces a great deal of the English speaking civilization.

Merri and I taught the science along with Jean Marie Butterlin from Spain, who will teach the science sessions at our May 2010 course in Cotacachi. Here is Merri with Jean Marie at last weekend’s course.

Learn super thinking. Clear up your memory plus become skilled in Spanish (in just four days).

I invite you to attend our “Super Thinking – Plus  Spanish” course in Cotacachi,  May 9-12, 2010.

NEW COURSE ADDED – Super Thinking Plus Spanish

There has been such a demand for the Super Thinking Spanish that we have added this course before our shamanic tour in May.

Here is the photo of the white board at last weekend’s Super Thinking plus Spanish course written by a delegate. Delegates were creating, speaking and understanding sentences like this after just four days.

This is not a gimmick nor a trick. At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better.

This book exposed this fact and made the system so popular that Dr. Lozanov was allowed to visit the US from Bulgaria to teach this system to just a very few people so they could pass on this vital information on how to learn and think in a more natural, powerful way so we can enjoy life and enhanced memory more.

Merri was among those few who learned how and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system from this Bulgarian master. She has organized a program for you min Ecuador that offers a practical course on how to learn faster and better. With her modified system, you will learn how to think and learn more powerfully in just four days. To prove how good you will be with this process, you learn Spanish as a side benefit.

The learning system you gain expands on Dr. Lozanov’s original work and offers new insights into tapping human potential, drawing from ancient and modern tactics for quick learning such as subliminal memory, music, nutrition, and productivity.

For example you learn how to evoke the power of the senses thus super-charging memory. Ever hear a song from twenty, thirty or forty years past and in a snap know all the words, the tune and remember with who and where your heard it decades ago? Learn how to use ten cycle music to gain almost super human thinking powers.

Dr. Lozanov was totally committed to learning without stress, to enjoy the thrill of relaxed, leisurely learning. These are just two, whole learning, super-thinking tactics you gain at this course.

You will gain seventeen, easy to use learning techniques that can help you gain any type of skill from computers to athletics to conversational languages–in much less time than traditional learning techniques.

This course will literally change the way you think and learn forever.

What is your desire? Do you want to speak Spanish, French, German, Chinese or any language? Would you like to golf better or accomplish more in school? Would you like to easily, quickly zip through projects, chores, reports? Merri’s “Super Thinking” course can help you learn any subject two-to-five times faster, in exciting and innovative ways.

The techniques you gain will help unlock the quantum potential we all possess. This evolutionary program shows how certain types of music can enhance learning and how even altered nutrition can make you a startling 25 percent smarter, how subliminal messages can increase your energy and thinking process, plus much, much more.

Merri’s system follows and builds upon what was taught in the Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 books plus includes techniques and strategies that she has gained in her 42 years of global travel and study with educational masters around the world.

This is a course that shows you how to increase your mental power to better succeed in the 21st century when we can otherwise be overwhelmed by information.

The system you gain is built from old and new sources ranging from yoga to contemporary Russian science, and ultimate zone training already used by many Olympic champions.

“Super Thinking – Super Spanish” presents new ways to use subliminal memory, music and much more to supercharge your mind. The knowledge you gain about smart food and super nutrition allows you to enhance productivity and creativity.

Once these concepts are understood, you will know how to create your own program and build new skills at work in study and play.

In addition you gain all the tools to quickly become fluent in Spanish.

Why Spanish?

Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world. Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives south of and around you. Yet our North American language system did not teach us how to communicate with or understand this culture. We can all do with a bit of Spanish.

Yet who has the time?

You do! Fluency in a language is considered to come when you know 1,200 words. To prove that it is possible to gain this and much more, let me share one tactic Merri taught me that gives you thousands of Spanish words in less than three minutes.

Here are the thousands of Spanish words lesson:

All words in Spanish and English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. For example action is accion, education educacion, manipulation, manipulacion, etc.

Now you already literally know hundreds of Spanish nouns. This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons you gain. The next lesson teaches you how to pronounce each of these nouns. Then you learn in a third lesson 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 you sounding like a Spanish professor (believe me I know as I use this tactic every day when in Ecuador). Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything you want in Spanish. Lesson six gives you the valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples your Spanish capacity with yesterday, now and tomorrow.

By the end of the four day course you will feel quite comfortable speaking Spanish without stress!

Yet your Spanish will just be one result from learning how to think better!  You will be able to use your new learning powers in amazing ways. For example this attendee at our last course wrote:

“Hi Gary & Merri, You two are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I

had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Well, as you can see prior to

taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!” Suzy Kurinsky

You gain all this in the Super Memory + Spanish course.  Plus there is one more benefit. The course will be conducted at the quaint, colonial Hotel Land of the Sun (formerly Meson de las Flores) . Here is the hotel’s courtyard with Alberto Verdezoto who will be the Spanish instructor in May.

Each lesson you gain will be customized to an event.

For example one day you’ll visit Otavallo, South America’s largest indigenous market.  The lesson before will prepare you for this trip because using what you learn helps lock in the knowledge.  Here are Ecuador exports that Bonnie Keogh (who leads our Ecuador export tour) displayed at our Mt Dora Spanish course (since many of the course delegates were joining Bonnie for our April export course).

Low Costs

Our seminar and tour fees remain as they were in 2007 and 2008.  Merri and I run our business from home and our internet only structure keeps our overheads low.   By conducting many smaller tours we keep our staff at a minimum so our fees run as low as a third of what other seminar and tour companies charge… yet again and again we are told that they are the best.. most personal and of course we have way more experience than anyone else. We are not selling real estate but are simply offering tours to help you to understand the country, the areas, the prices so you can make an informed decision.

In addition we do not accept commissions or any form of compensation from hotels where our delegates stay, or from sellers of real estate on our tours. Instead we negotiate low room rates and try to get real estate sellers to offer discounts to our our tour delegates.

Split Sessions Available North and South

Our new split session seminars help those who have asked to attend courses but who cannot make it to Ecuador right now.  These courses… both our International Business & Investing and Super Thinking + Spanish seminars will have the first session conducted in Central Florida (Mt. Dora) or the Blue Ridge in North Carolina.   Then those who choose the second optional session can travel to Ecuador for the remaining real estate or shamanic minga tours that follow immediately after the first session.

Enjoy Optional Group Travel

Split session delegates can travel to Ecuador in a group with our staff and we’ll try to negotiate special low cost fares.

Three New Real Estate Tour Destinations

We have added Quito, Mindo and Cuenca real estate tours.  We want you to experience more of the beauty and joys of Ecuador!

Quantum Wealth

We have also added (at no cost) a one day Quantum Wealth course to our International Investment & Business Courses.

This course teaches similar knowledge provided in our Super Thinking + Spanish courses.

There are numerous little known, but scientifically proven, ways to enhance the speed, accuracy and efficiency of the mind, memory, recall, retention and decision making process for greater wealth, health and happiness.

This is not a gimmick or a trick… just advanced education. 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.

In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of Raja Yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better…thus making better and clearer decisions for wealth and health.

The book exposed this fact making it so popular that Dr. Lozanov was allowed to visit the US from Bulgaria to teach this system to just a very few people so they could pass on this vital information on how to learn and think in a more natural, powerful way so we can enjoy life and enhanced memory more.

Merri was among those few who learned and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system. Merri’s modified system shares her knowledge on how to think and learn more powerfully in our Spanish courses.  Now we are adapting this science to help delegates have better investing and business.

The learning system expands on Dr. Lozanov’s original work and offers new insights into tapping human potential, drawing from ancient and modern tactics for quick learning such as subliminal memory, music, nutrition, and productivity.

Quantum Wealth changes the way a person thinks and learns forever.

The techniques help unlock the quantum potential that all people possess. This evolutionary program shows how certain types of music can enhance learning and how even altered nutrition can make anyone a startling 25% smarter, how subliminal messages can increase energy and thinking process, plus much, much more.  This is the system that we use for building wealth and for making decisions.

This Super Thinking system follows and builds upon what was taught in the Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 plus includes techniques and strategies that Merri has gained in her 41 years of global travel and study with educational masters around the world.

This is a course that shows how to increase mental power for success in a 21st century that is overwhelmed by information. The system is built from old and new sources ranging from raja yoga to contemporary unorthodox science, and ultimate zone training already used by many Olympic champions.

Five Options

Each month delegates can choose to come to one, two, three, four or all five seminars and tours conducted in the month.  Multi tour adventures provide additional discounts.

Be sure to read tomorrow’s message which explains how to (save up to $35,449) attend as many of these seminars and tours as you desire FREE!

Gary

Comments from a real estate tour delegate:  Gary, A special thank you for the real estate tours that you provide. John and I did a lot of research and chose Ecuador as our first choice. Our visit in June exceeded our expectations of the info that we had gathered about the country. Ecuador also meets our top seven priorities: Cost of living, Climate, Cost of real estate, Heath care, Access to high speed internet, Accessibilty to the States and over all safety.  Our dream has always been to live on the beach and moving to Ecuador will make that dream come true.  Again, a big thank you for helping us make that dream come true.

Head south to Ecuador!

Oct. 21-24 Ecuador Import Export Tour (SOLD OUT)

Oct. 25-26 Imbabura Real Estate Tour

Comments from a Super Thinking + Spanish delegate:  I wanted you to know that the Spanish course has proven incredibly helpful. Dealing with internet service providers and shopping for appliances, etc., normally would have required me hiring a translator to follow me around. While it may not be pretty or 100% grammatically correct, I am understood. Thank you!  Saludos!

Nov. 9-10 Imbabura Real Estate Tour

Nov. 11-14 Ecuador Coastal Real Estate Tour

From a real estate buyer in Ecuador.  Hello Again Gary,  I am just outside Salinas in Punta Blanca I remember you saying a decade ago to start there. I have seen the price on land here jump directly on the beach now $300 to $500 a square meter and off the beach $80 to $100 square meter and the lots are not big an average lot is 250 square meters. I bought several lots in this area for less than half of the asking price today. I remember seeing a article about that you wrote a decade ago that you were able to buy lot’s here in Punta Blanca for a couple to a few thousand.  You also used Naples Florida as an example this I why I bought here in Punta Blanca YOU WERE RIGHT! It all started the night I came back from my first trip when I came across your website. If it was not for the knowledge that you share and international living none of this would have gone as smooth as it has. So Thank You Gary!

December 6-8 Blane Watson’s Beyond Logic & Shamanic Tour

December 9-10 Imbabura Real Estate Tour

December 11-13 Ecuador Coastal Real Estate Tour

Comments from delegates at our International Business & Investing Course.  We so enjoyed attending the IBEZ Seminar this past weekend in Jefferson, NC.  We loved the high country area, the nice people we met and particularly enjoyed the visit and tour of the New River Winery.  We were lucky to sit at a table with four utterly charming southern women, one of whom was Haskell’s wife.  As a retiree who saw her retirement sustain considerable loss due to the economy, I found the information you presented during the three days to be extremely helpful and showed a plausible way for me to have some recovery.  Besides all of the relevant information, your emphasis on honesty and the importance of not be deceptive was reassuring.  The bottom line is, that what gave real value to the information we were receiving and what made us feel comfortable was, that we felt you, Thomas and David were all people of good character.  Something that is very important to us.  We intend to do business with JGAM and Jyske Bank very soon.

Join us in the mountains and at the sea.  Attend more than one seminar and tour and save even more plus get the three emailed courses free.

International Club attend up to 52 courses and tours in 2010 free.

Ecuador Pain Reduction


Few people know about the Ecuador pain reduction center in Cotacachi.

Ecuador-pain-relief

Merri and I love to be outdoors.  Here we are riding the Virginia Creeper Trail with our daughter Eleanor.

Yet for some time my hiking and riding had been hindered by pain. I found something exciting to resolve this pain.  Learn about it below.

Ecuador-pain-relief

Here I am hiking with our hound Ma…

Ecuador-pain-relief

In these mountains above Lake San Pablo and Otavalo.

Ecuador has a pain secret.

Ecuador-pain-relief

Here I am hiking with Merri and Ma in NC.

I get numerous letters from readers like this.

Hi Merri, I wanted to thank you once again for your recommendation
 that I try Sol de Vida. I have had time for thirteen treatments but 
now it’s time for me to return home. The people there are wonderful 
and I’m happy to say there has been a dramatic improvement in my
 (used-to-be) “bum” leg. I can now walk much longer distances and 
remain pain free!

Every pain free day in life is a gift…a fact that in the hustle and bustle of living is easily forgotten.

I know from experience.  See www.garyscott.com car crash if you missed how a car crash over 40 years ago created pain for me.

The crash broke my knee and back…but I did not know. (This was added to a serious whiplash gained the year before.) 30 years later was when I finally found out about the back. The knee was discovered just s few years ago after a chain saw accident to the same knee needed Xrays. The Xrays  showed that previous break.

The wreck was in the 1960s. People were not so careful then.  This had been a simple car wreck. No one was killed. There were things to do. So next morning I was back to work. That night (I was working my way though college) it was “back to school” and that was that.

Not surprisingly a decade later, at the ripe age of 30, my back pain began. The day is easy to recall. We had moved to London, and I was driving down Wigmore Street in a brown Audi with a business associate. The simple task of turning onto a side road was all it took. I was seized by an agonizing back spasm. I could not get up, could not walk, nor move, nor lie down, nor sit, nor move without stabs of intense pain. Staying in bed for a couple days just made it possible to move.

This did not end the pain.

The problem grew. Again and again the simplest task would throw my back agonizingly out of whack. Finally in desperation I went to Harley Street back specialists.

They poked, prodded, took blood tests and did all types of things. Funnily not one Xray was used. The final diagnosis was “Creaky Joints.” “Some people just have it,” he said. “We can’t do a thing except give you cortisone shots. But let’s wait on this as long as we can.” I fled and lived with continual pain and occasional bouts in bed for the next five or six years.

During this time Merri’s holistic and natural living influence grew in my life. She suggested an alternative doctor who used acupuncture.   After one especially bad bout that left me lying in bed I was ready to try anything. This was the 1980s and such treatment was still considered off beat in the West.

Having lived in Hong Kong for six years, I was open.  Plus pain will open your mind to just about anything.

The doctor put four or five needles in my arm. I was skeptical…until….the pain literally melted away!

To this day over 20 years later that feeling of relief is still with me.  I have never had the “laid up in bed” pain again. The continual pain then had been such a daily habit that I felt very strange when I left that chiropractor’s office….not that I was craving to have it back!

Nor has it come back with any intensity in all these years.

However three years ago pain did return to my left hip and grew, not intense, sudden pain but a nagging ache that never let up… sort of like a toothache.

Then one of our helpers at the Meson de las Flores sent me this note: The Sol de Vida spa on the outskirts of Cotacachi has a naturopath who comes to Meson. He is nothing less than a revelation. Everyone here recently had a treatment with him including me. He set up a consulting room in room 114 and one by one ALL of our guests proceeded in. I took the last turn but also translated for the others and learned a lot!

He charges $10 for the diagnosis and then $5 or $10 for a treatment. I asked our guests how they rated his services for value on a scale of 1 to 10. All agreed he is a 10! He is very kind, softly spoken and has a gentle sense of humor.

He is an MD who has branched into alternative healing and has studied with Chinese and Indian doctors. Here he is below;

He first takes your general history, then your blood pressure and pulse. His pulse reading uses Chinese techniques to gather information about the vitality of your organs. Depending on what he finds, he may also use a pendulum to discover how much energy you have at your Chakra points.

He uses a variety of techniques to re-balance you including magnet therapy, lymphatic drainage massages, color therapy, reflexology and acupressure.

He also uses heated herbal wraps on the forehead and shoulders as well as therapeutic massages with essential oils. He recommends natural remedies and supplies them at a later date if he doesn’t have them with him.

Two of our guests were so taken that they have had 3 treatments with him in less than a week. He helped another client by fine-tuning the focus of his healing efforts and pinpointing what to work on.

Another guest stated ‘the treatment was wonderfully enjoyable and very helpful because I now better understand the imbalances in my body and specifically how to handle asthma’.

I decided to try the Sol y Vida myself.

After an examination I was prescribed 15 days of four treatments a day… electric stimulation…. infra red…. ultra sound and electro magnetic.

After the treatments, the pain disappeared and has three years later never returned.  My total cost was $10 for the examination and two dollars a day for all four treatments.  In all I paid just $40.

Now this Ecuador pain center has moved to within walking distance of Meson.

Ecuador Living subscribers can learn about the new Ecuador pain center here.

Here is a Pain Reduction Idea

Our Super Thinking + Spanish course is about much more than speaking Spanish.

This course is about tapping the reserves of the mind.   The ability of the human body and mind is virtually limitless.  Merri who developed our course was trained by Dr. Georgi Lozanov, the Bulgarian master of education, and he called his system “tapping the reserves of the mind”.

Lozanov, a Bulgarian doctor and psychiatrist, didn’t start out to be an educator. He set out to study the nature of man, of the human being in all its potential. He concluded that we are only using a fraction of our capabilities. Lozanov devised ways to open the reserves of the mind and, as a doctor, put them to work to improve the body, to heal mental and physical disease. But in investigating what the whole human being can do, he couldn’t help being drawn into creative and intuitive areas. Then still investigating almost by necessity, he became the leading parapsychologist in the Russian Empire. He realized that with these techniques, the average person could develop Super Memory, could learn factual information with unheard of ease.

From this background in the 1960s, the entire USSR began to flourish. Thousands learned languages in 24 days.  Skiers returned home from Switzerland and the Olympics with the Gold and Silver Medals.  Bulgarian children came home from their ordinary schools in their ordinary streets learning in one month that which previously required one year.

Superlearning methods always see us whole, in the round.  They have something else in common that’s hard to explain because they are not straightforward.  When we begin to operate more as a whole, seemingly inexplicable things can happen.

A woman studying a foreign language suddenly finds her sinus trouble has disappeared. A man learning chemistry realizes his intuition has accelerated. An athlete doing body-training techniques finds his concentration improved in mathematics.  As obstructive divisions dissolve, all areas of the person can be strengthened learning, better health…. the elimination of pain.

Here is the pain reduction idea.  Attend our  Super Thinking plus Spanish course this September and visit the pain reduction spa at the same time.

Combine the power of awakening your mind body potential and this natural approach to relieving pain.

Our course schedule gives you time to do both and we’ll be happy to help you make an appointment with the MD.

We visit the markets during our Ecuador Spanish course and practice what we learn.

We receive notes from readers every day and this one especially reminds me that speaking Spanish when you retire or live in Ecuador can do more than just help you communicate.

Hi Gary

Guess what? Your fantastic program is still working after all these years…Seriously, I took your Super Learning Class in August 2005. My Broker’s license needs to be renewed in 7 weeks so I just took my first continuing education class on-line today. My result is listed below:

Score: 25.0 of 25 (100.0%)  Passed

You passed the final exam. Congratulations!

Thanks again!

Our Super Thinking + Spanish courses do more than help you learn to speak Spanish or retire in Ecuador.  They help you become more effective in everything.

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

Our Super Thinking + Spanish course is about using our minds better. Learning to speak Spanish is just a side benefit!

The ability to communicate in Spanish is really important.

Delegates at a previous Ecuador Spanish course we conducted in Cotacachi.

Spanish is the second most important language in the world.

Our Ecuador Spanish course goes beyond Spanish.  Super thinking is a method so revolutionary that in just a week you will be able to communicate…and even dream… in Spanish….plus much more.

Super thinking helps you learn how to unlock the power of your untapped knowledge in a little known, but scientifically proven way of learning that enhances the speed, accuracy and efficiency of your decision making process.

Super thinking improves your ability to absorb, retain and recall information.

Sound too good to be true?

This is not a gimmick or a trick. At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of raja yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better.

The book exposed this fact and made the system so popular that Dr. Lozanov was allowed to visit the US from Bulgaria to teach this system to just a very few people so they could pass on this vital information on how to learn and think in a more natural, powerful way so we can enjoy life and enhanced memory more.

Merri was among those few who learned and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system and she has organized the Super Thinking program.

Whether you plan to visit, live or retire in Ecuador, Spanish can help you.
