Super Spanish Raves

You really can learn Spanish in 3 days.  Here is the latest proof.

Last September our Super Spanish teachers Shawn and Suzanne Bandick conducted a three day Super Spanish course.

After the course they sent me this note.

Gary, here are Super Spanish testimonials for September 2018.


The Super Spanish class September 2018, Vernon, BC Canada.

The Bandicks wrote:  I came to the weekend knowing zero Spanish and am leaving with a solid foundation to play with and build upon. I am blown away by how much I have learned in just 3 days. It was easy, fun and effective. – Katelyn Edgar

Excellent way to build a functional knowledge of Spanish. Amazing how it just seems to sink in. – Rod Burroff

I found the course to be very informative and that is because of the way the material was presented and taught. It’s super easy to understand how it all works together. I was able to make sentences by mid day on the first day of class and that is impressive. It’s a great 3 days of learning. The instructors were positive and confident and with that attitude being passed down to the students it made me feel that I was able to speak and understand Spanish for the first time. – Lesley Wilson

I have tried to learn French and Spanish over the years and was convinced that I was never going to able to converse in any language other than English. Well that all changed in 3 days. I am confident enough now to open my mouth now and try! – Lisa Cheswick

I can’t believe how much I learned in 3 days. I have taken many courses and none compare to how much I retained. I felt and built confidence in my communication skills. Thank you! – Allie Afflick

I was skeptical on learning useful Spanish in 3 days. After 3 days I will attest that most people will learn how to learn and to converse in Spanish easier in the future. A most useful and intense course. – Bonaventure

Suzanne, Shawn and Brianna made it very comfortable to learn a totally new language. I am feeling comfortable with the basics after 3 days. They are such awesome instructors! I will highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn Spanish in a stress free environment. It takes the fear out of learning a new language.Thank you! – Vicky Bentz

This is a very different way of learning a language. There is a lot of material that is covered and it is all relevant and useful words. The learning atmosphere is very relaxed allowing you to feel you are in a Spanish environment, I really had fun and look forward to continuing to get better at my Spanish. The class is not intimidating. It is very relaxed and inclusive. – Frannie Thorburn


Suzanne Bandick, her daughter Brianna and granddaughter.  Shawn, Suzanne and Brianna teach the course.

The Bandicks have scheduled their next three day Super Thinking + Spanish course for this January 4, 5 and 6, 2019 in Vernon BC.

Here’s a way to start the new year right by learning something new.  Stimulating your brain in early January can provide a game plan for remaining smarter the entire year through.

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?

See proof below.  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.

Part of the Super Thinking method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov.

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 1970s.  She has been practicing this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades.

Lozanov’s teachings are one of seven super learning tactics used in the course:

#1: 17 lessons teaching the student 4005 words that are the same in Spanish and English so there is no memorization of vocabulary.

#2:  Losanov’s teaching  was to use certain forms of Baroque music throughout because the brain likes hearing it.  This causes the mind to associate Spanish with pleasure.

#3: Using a wave system to improve vocabulary so students can hear themselves and others speak words without fear.

#4: Developing confidence by having students create Spanish sentences in the first three hours so the process is more meaningful.

#5: Staying totally in the infinitive so there is no conjugation.

#6: Using relaxation sessions and humor to keep the students in a state of relaxed concentration. This is the most effective state for learning.

#7:  Getting students to speak well enough in three days so they can mentally and verbally create sentences that keeps Spanish active in their mind.

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

Four important points in the article are shown in excerpts below with my comments to show what has been wrong with traditional Spanish courses and why the Super Thinking tactic is perfect for this program.

The article begins: WASHINGTON, D.C. — Many Americans don’t learn a second or a third language from birth, let alone a language that the CIA or U.S. Foreign Service might want. The situation has forced U.S. government agencies to learn how to cultivate the most talented second-language speakers from among college students with little to no other-language expertise.

“In U.S. education, we don’t develop early bilinguals,” said Catherine Doughty, a language expert at the University of Maryland.

Doughty spoke as part of a panel on Feb. 19 during the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference in Washington, D.C.

She and other speakers described the typical U.S. second-language program as being a series of disjointed classes where students often repeated what they had learned before.

“Imagine math [programs] where the middle school says, ‘We don’t have any idea about what you studied,’ so you learn it again. It’s the same with high school,” said Robert O. Slater, director of the U.S. National Security Education Program.

This is why traditional Spanish courses often do not work.  They create two obstacles up front…conjugation and  memorization of vocabulary.

Super Thinking + Spanish avoids both these obstacles.

The article continues:   Finding the best.  Government agencies aren’t alone in trying to recruit multilingual speakers; U.S. corporations covet such skills for doing business in the era of globalization.

This is why your ability to speak Spanish increases your value.   You become more important in an increasingly global world.

The article explained how Doughty and her colleagues used tests to train up cognitive processes related to language learning, such as the ability to hold information in the brain while using it for learning.  The tests sought to predict those who can succeed despite everything stacked against them.

The article reviewed changes in the brain when measuring the electrical activity in the brain.   Researchers saw differences in the brain patterns among language learners and fluent speakers. They found surprising results.

The article pointed out: Repeated studies of French language students showed that their brains responded differently to real French words compared with fake words after just two weeks of classes, even if the students themselves could not tell such words apart.   

“From knowing nothing to a little bit, [there are] huge changes in the brain,” Osterhout pointed out.”[From] knowing a little to knowing a lot, [it is] much more subtle.”

This is why Super Thinking + Spanish works.

The three day course focus is entirely on making the huge change.  The three day course prepares the learner to speak Spanish immediately so you can make the subtle changes later in day to day life.

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

This is the other reason why Super Thinking plus Spanish works.  This three day course gets the delegates speaking and thinking Spanish all the time so they can use and/or think Spanish every day… and communicating even from the beginning.  In this way the education grows even when Spanish is not being spoken.

The Super Thinking course first integrates the brain.  Students learn better with relaxed concentration. Then the course teaches them 17 simple lessons so they know 4005 words in Spanish and can use them to create sentences. In this way, you can communicate in Spanish just three days.

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

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online.

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

How The Course Works

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

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

Here is the proof.

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

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

See examples of the words you already know below.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In addition we will give you the full $79 price (a 26% discount off the normal tuition) credit deducted from any of the Bandick’s courses.

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