Dr. Andres Cordova

Located just a short stroll from the beach, this villa in picturesque up-and-coming Puerto Cayo can be yours for just $79,000.

This is an opportunity to purchase an ample, recently renovated villa, located just a short stroll from the beach, in picturesque up and coming Puerto Cayo at an exceptional price.

Whether you are looking for a full time residence, a place to go to in your wintertime a good investment in real estate or all of the above, you should seriously consider this opportunity.

The original list price of the property is $89,00. However, the seller will provide a $10,000 discount for a closing in the next 30 days, meaning you can get this wonderful home for just $79,000.

The property is owned by Richard Smyth, a citizen of Canada who spends several months of the year in Puerto Cayo enjoying the weather, strolling the beach and making new friends. He is selling the property, as he needs the funds.

In his own words: “I’ve been drawn to Ecuador for several years, visiting many times, exploring the coast up and down.

I bought this home in Puerto Cayo, a place I’m quite fond of, to be able to visit more frequently, stay longer periods and soak up the warm weather. I love the sunny days, the early morning walks at the beach and the fresh seafood. I’ve used the villa as a platform to get to many other areas in Ecuador with ease. I have also rented the house several times to locals and foreigners.

Recently I’ve made several upgrades to the house, including landscaping, a paint job, improvements in the kitchen and more. I enjoy spending time in the house and entertaining friends. I am selling the house as I am making an investment in an agricultural property in Ecuador and it’s time sensitive.”

Here is more information on the property:

It is an ample property with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, a nice wooden deck and a terraza on top, where you will be able to enjoy the perks of living near the ocean, hearing the sound of the waves, experiencing the soft soothing breeze and catching some extraordinary sunsets from time to time.

The house has a nice little garden where coconut, mango, grapefruit, avocado, lemon plus vegetables and decorative flowers have been planted.

The house comes fully furnished with new beds, kitchen table and 6 chairs; a new fridge, stove, laundry washer and 4 AC units and also an upper rattan love seat, 3 chairs and a table plus 4 extra outdoors chairs.

As Puerto Cayo comes increasingly into the attention of a growing expat community that loves the quaint, laid-back atmosphere, where they can kick back and relax in the ocean breeze, make new friends or mingle as the fishermen bring in their catch, this is the time to come in.

Puerto Cayo is close to Isla de la Plata and Isla Sombrerita. It’s quite near the Pacoche Rain Forest, the Machalilla National Park including Los Frailes Beach, deemed to be among the very best in continental Ecuador. Nearby there are excellent hiking options and Agua Blanca with its thermal pools.

Manta and the airport are an hour away to the north. To the south you will get to Montañita and Salinas on the Ruta del Spondylus scenic route.

This wonderful villa can be yours for just $79,000, provided a closing is had in the next 30 days.

This is the opportunity to enjoy nice weather, one of a kind sunsets and fun experiences that you can also share with family or your new-found friends.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

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

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

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe.  In the 1990s we took investors to Panama, Mexico and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy way to learn Spanish.

See below how my wife Merri was able to create a program that allowed students to be speaking and understanding Spanish in just three days.

Thousands of subscribers have learned Spanish at our three day Super Spanish course.  These courses have been taught across the US, in Canada, Panama, Mexico, Ecuador, Uruguay and Spain.

Read below to see how and why we are now offering our Super Spanish course ONLINE for the first time.

Speaking Spanish as a second language has huge benefits.

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 English at all.

You become one of a leading few 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 (bolds are mine): “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.

You may choose to take more time using the ONLINE course to learn Spanish, but thousands of our readers have learned to speak Spanish in only three days 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!

A special method of learning (called Super Learning) was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

My wife 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 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 students 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 to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  

Merri was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

Super Spanish relaxed concentration session.

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

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

Here is the proof.

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

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read 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.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

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

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

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

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $79.

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

The 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.

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.”

Here is the English translation of a few of the many Spanish words you now know and will never forget.  How long would it have taken you to memorize them?  How soon would you forget?

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

New Ecuador Golf Course


A new golf course is coming to Ecuador’s coast, near Jama.

Mike Grabowski, head of Yuma Internacional, developers of the Ladera Pacifica gated community recently told me about the new world class golf course opening up soon in Jama, about 30 minutes from the Ladera Pacific community.

Golf facilities in Ecuador are very limited.

ecuador-golf

Guayaquil Ecuador Golf Course.

Ecuador is not a great golfing destination as there are only a handful of private clubs near Quito, Guayaquil, or Cuenca, with 18-hole courses.  The closest golf course to the Pacific has been quite a distance away in Guayaquil.

An article in Cybergolf  entitled “The Six-Continent Club – With New Course in Ecuador, Smyers Joins One of Golf’s Most Select Groups” (1)

The article says:   He only has Antarctica is left. With a new course opening in Ecuador this fall, golf architect Steve Smyers will have designed on six of Planet Earth’s seven continents, joining only a handful of architects to do so.

“It’s called Costa Jama, and it has four different ecosystems,” explains Smyers energetically, as his eyes light up and he beams a toothy smile and, indeed, he has good reason to be delighted with this site. “It’s right on the Equator, where the mountains meet the Pacific Ocean, with three finishing three holes right on the water or playing directly towards it. It also traverses a jungle, a ravine, a riverside, and winds into the foothills of the mountains. We even play along the side of a river!  It’s an absolutely spectacular natural setting for golf.”

This is one more reason why the area north of Bahia on Ecuador’s Pacific will continue to expand.  See a link to the golf course details below.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT:

Ladera Pacifica is a gated community north of Bahia with a breathtaking panoramic view of the ocean, within walking distance from the beach.

ecuador ocean view

It is situated in coastal Manabi, Ecuador, just a short distance from Bahia de Caraquez, overlooking the fishing and surf town of Canoa.

The project is safely elevated at an average elevation of 60 feet above sea level, in an environmentally protected reserve, surrounded by rare, tropical, pristine forest. Ladera Pacifica project consists of 40 luxury homes, at 1,200 square feet designed to rigorous standards, with quality and sustainability never before seen in Ecuador.

ecuador ocean view

Ladera Pacifc has the best ocean views.

Ocean view homes provide the best of both worlds, access to the sea, but lower operation and maintenance costs away from the  salty corrosive ocean mists.

Ladera Pacific’s position above the beach removes the risks of the rare natural disasters and floods due to high tides, change in weather patterns and the El Nino effect.  Security on a hillside development is also logistically easier, so no huge obtrusive walls are necessary.

Prices Likely to Rise but Not Everywhere


Prices are likely to rise everywhere in the USA as the Federal reserve considers creating inflation to ignite the US economy.

Ecuador prices have been rising but there are still some great bargains especially on the beach… like this condo.

ecuador ocean view

Here is a Salinas Ecuador ocean view condo at $47,000.

Excerpts from an October 12, 2011 Financial Times article entitled  “Fed tempted by ‘QE3’ at latest meeting” by Robin Harding
provides clue when it says:   The US Federal Reserve considered a new round of quantitative easing as an option at its September monetary policy meeting, suggesting that “QE3” is still possible if the economy weakens further.

“A number of participants saw large-scale asset purchases as potentially a more potent tool that should be retained as an option in the event that further policy action to support a stronger economic recovery was warranted,” say minutes of the meeting, released on Wednesday.

At the September meeting the Fed launched “Operation Twist” – a $400bn programme of selling short-dated and buying longer-dated Treasuries – in an effort to drive down long-term interest rates and support a failing economic recovery.

But the minutes suggest there is still an appetite on the rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee for more measures to support growth. While three of the 10 FOMC members voted against Twist, the minutes reveal that two other members thought that the outlook supported stronger action, and voted for Twist only because “it did not rule out additional steps at future meetings”.

The minutes also show that the FOMC is debating extensive changes to its communication policies. “Most participants indicated that they favoured taking steps to increase further the transparency of monetary policy, including providing more information about the committee’s longer-run policy objectives and about the factors that influence the committee’s policy decisions,” the minutes say.

That could mean setting an explicit inflation objective for the Fed, something long favoured by chairman Ben Bernanke, but held back by internal disagreements and the need for support in Congress. (Bolds are mine).

So this Ecuador ocean view condo looks like a good value priced at $47,000.

The seller of this unit writes: This condo has 700 square foot and is on the 4th floor. This is a one bedroom unit with ocean views,  one block off from Salinas beach.

The location is within walking distance of several expat establishments, restaurants, shops and entertainment.  It is located near the Malecon, near plenty of social activity but in a quieter part of town.

ecuador ocean view

Inside the unit, there is an open floor plan in the living/dining and kitchen area, one and a half baths and of course the bedroom.  Included with the condo are one parking space and a storage bodega.  The building has a live-in caretaker.

The price of $47,500 includes furnishings, excluding artwork and personal items. 

Please be aware that this is a walk-up (no elevator), but at a price that is virtually impossible to find for 700 square feet with an ocean view.

Amy

Inflation is everywhere so owning real property purchased at a good value is one way to protect against the erosion of  purchasing power.

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!

A special method of learning (called Super Learning) was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

My wife 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 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 students 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 to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  

Merri was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

Super Spanish relaxed concentration session.

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

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

Here is the proof.

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

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read 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.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

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

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

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

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $79.

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

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.”

Beat Inflation in Bahia


Low prices and increased construction can help you beat inflation in Bahia.

Inflation is pushing  a comfortable beachfront lifestyle out of the reach of many North Americans.  This is not so in Bahia, Ecuador where there is great expansion.

The first new building completed since Bahia’s earthquake in Bahia de Caraquez Ecuador is complete.

bahia-ecuador-condos

Bahia is a special town with a rich sophisticated culture, that came as the coastal population developed a tradition of sending their children to study abroad. This created a great cultural diversity that was enhanced by the residents of Quito who used Bahia as their beach resort.

This caused Bahia property to become some of the most valuable on Ecuador’s coast. Then an earthquake struck and devastated the town and the Bahia  economy.  Prices tumbled to a tenth their former prices.

The population took this as a sign and remodeled this city into one in union with nature’s forces.

In 1999 Bahia was named the first Ecological City of Ecuador due to its innovative recycling program with garbage pick up every day.  Street sweepers still sweep the street daily with brooms.

Bahia has rebuilt slowly but solidly so today its rich culture, the hospital and many clinics and several private and public schools and colleges make it an ideal place.

Now Bahia is ready to expand and is growing rapidly.  The local airport is likely to expand and Manta’s airport is just over an hour away makes Bahia convenient for reaching any part of Ecuador and Quito’s International Airport.

Yet many never leave since all the good things in life are here.   Bahia has a farmers market every day with fresh fruit and seafood including shrimp for $1.50 per pound or langostinos and lump crab meat for $4 per pound.

Bahia is also a safe place to be.  Bahia has one of the lowest crime rates of all of Ecuador.  Bahia is our shopping town in Ecuador and is one reason why Merri and I chose our beach apartment on the beach of San Clemente… a small fishing village near Bahia.

So it is not surprising that jean Marie Butterlin who originally joined us in Cotacachi also moved to Bahia.

Here Jean Marie reports on his new Bahia home.

bahia-ecuador-condos

First New Construction Project in Bahia in 12 Years

Jean Marie Butterlin

Bahia is becoming more and more popular and getting a lot more attention ; A year ago on our coastal tour we had about 65 apartments for sale in Bahia (we showed to our delegates about the 10 best we had) ; in March we had only 5 left to show that were suitable for expats.
After the earthquake hit in the late 90’s, all new constructions stopped and no condos were built since then.

The apartments available for sale in the resale market are usually 13 to 17 years old and need some refurbishings ; they were built for wealthy Ecuadorian families that came from Quito for their vacations about 3 times a year ; they are usually pretty big (4 bedrooms and about 180 m2/1,900 sq.ft) and sell for about $65 to $68/sq.ft. when located in premium beach areas.
I have been looking for more than 3 years to buy a condo in Bahia and never could find the right size, right price, or right ocean view.

I had almost found a condo in November, that was on the market for just 5 days but when I made the offer, it had sold one hour before. Before making the offer, I took a bit of time to get a quote for the remodeling to American or European standards i.e. new kitchen, wooden floors, new bathrooms ; this amounted to about $15/sq.ft for a total cost of $80/sq.ft but I lost the deal….

Then one day Pascale and I saw a big sign just in front of the Hotel La Piedra on an empty lot facing the ocean and the bay showing a picture of a new construction building. Later that evening I met by pure luck the owner, while waiting at the Manta Airport for my flight to Quito. Coincidence ?

This new construction building told me that what I had felt for over 2 years about Bahia and its development was about to come to fruition; but as of today it is still the only new building in town and I feel that the condos will increase in value quite quickly.

That was last December and here is why I bought an apartment in that new project :

1) The price at $81/sq.ft for a new construction was just $1/sq.ft higher than what I would pay for a used remodeled apartment. That was a no-brainer to me !

2) The location : the view on both the ocean and the bay are just what I was looking for.

3) The finishings are much better than what I expected to get in Bahia with huge terraces on all sides, hard wood floors, American kitchen with hardwood cabinets.

4) Right size : Most apartments had the size I was looking for (2 or 3 bedrooms and about 1,200 sq.ft)

5) I got a free membership to the Tennis club ($1,500)

6) It has amenities that no other building in Bahia delivers i.e. desalinization water system, own generator, 2 pools and jacuzzi on the top floor, nice lobby like a luxury hotel, with outside glass elevator facing the ocean ; 24/7 security, magnetic cards system, underground garage, bodega, etc…

7) It is an income generating apartment : the Hotel La Piedra will rent out your apartment, when empty and do all the cleaning etc… you can also rent it yourself during the High Season (30 to 40 days/year) and could make about 6% on your money during that time.

When I bought  last December, I got pre-construction price ; when I came back in February construction had not started yet and when I saw that prices in the used market were starting to rise, I bought a second smaller apartment just for investment because I knew prices would go up by 10% one week later, when construction was set to start. Now the price I got on that second new condo was lower than a similar used/remodeled apartment. (I took advantage of that little price distortion.)

We had a few delegates, who bought in that project at pre-construction prices in the last few months and they have already locked in a 10% profit ; right now construction is well under way, and the building should be finished by December.There are only a few units left ; however, the builder is giving EL premium subscribers and delegates on our next coastal tour a $4,000 custom furniture allowance. There is also a 4% discount available for a 50% cash upfront payment.See the project at :  www.oceanbaytowers.com

Ecuador Real Estate and Values of Space in Ecuador

Ecuador real estate gains added value because technology changes utility in many ways beyond green. This is why Ecuador real estate offers such opportunity for wealth and beauty now.

Yesterday’s message looked at Ecuador real estate and the kitchen of one Barro Viejo property our last Ecuador real estate tour viewed. Low cost air fares, broadband and almost free communications alter the values of distance and make it possible to live in year round, balmy weather and sun in a dream home that is no longer affordable up north. An example is this property we viewed on our last Ecuador real estate tour.

Few of us can afford such a property with phenomenal views nestled in the hills.

Yet here prices are still afordable and such properties have features only the super rich can now afford…such as arches.

From the first entrance of this “House of the Sun” there are arches everywhere.

The arch has altered the value of space for milenniums. In addition to being one of the oldest structural innovations that has advanced mankind, what can an arch do or mean?

First, arches can create charm. Too bad most people up north can no longer afford this feature. I wonder what this does to the northern soul?

Next they mean an invitation to the softness of Mother Nature. As Barro Viejo puts it, “Man is the only creature that chooses to live in a square”.

Arches add frameworks for visions beyond….

And added attractions to look through space from colorful, comfortable thick walled, breathing, adobe walled rooms.

Arches also grace doors.

And the solid all hard wood doors of Ecuador are another feature that most northerners now miss.

Arches open the way into warmth.

Arches even enhance the out of doors.

Plus add romance and even mystery. Where does this room lead?

Technology makes the space in Ecuador even more attainable than nearby, because prices here are still so low. Ecuador is a new utility that provides modern, but warm and wonderful buildings with arches and more for less.

Plus people are having fun as they discover this truth. Here is what several who have been here in the last months have shared.

“Hi Merri, I have been meaning to share a great compliment with you. Everyone in the group I brought said that they thought La Mirage was beautiful but they were really happy that they stayed with you guys. You and I know that energy is the key and you and Gary have created the place to be. Love and miss you and hope this brought a positive smile to your face today. Please share this with Gary. When are you coming back to NC? Sandi”

“Hi Merri and Gary, Just wanted to say thanks for a wonderful 12 days. Lisa and I had a great time. Lisa’s mother got her flowers today and she says they are spectacular. I have asked the flower supplier about importing them here to Atl for central distribution. Lee is going to help us design our new house here in Atl and we are also investigating importing the wooden miniblinds we saw in one of the houses for sale in Cotacacchi. Thanks again for a great experience.
Cheers, Charlie and Lisa”

“Dear Gary, My wife and I safely arrived to New York. Thank you very much for your hospitality and kindness. We had a great time spending the Saturday afternoon with you and with your lovely wife. Now it is very cold in New York and we are embracing for a wintery mess. I think a lot about the Ecuadorian sun and the great weather. I am sending you a couple of pictures what I made in Cotacachi. Please show them to Merri too. Thank you very much again.
Yours truly, Szab”

“Dear Merri, I apologize for my delay in writing, but I want to thank you for a wonderful conference and for all of your help in getting everything lined out for me prior to arrival in Ecuador. I feel I received some excellent information in both Florida and Ecuador, and I look forward to returning in the not too distant future.

Cotacachi is a nice little town, and you all have a great little place there. It was a pleasure meeting you and I hope to see you again soon.
Sincerely, Laura”

“Hi Merri, I wanted to write to say ¨thank you¨ for the seminar. I mentioned to Gary that I think I learned more in this one week than I have in my last year of business school. This was the first seminar that I have ever attended, and I don´t expect it to be my last. In fact, I emailed Gary about the condos in Cotacachi, and I am very interested in purchasing one and becoming a member of your community should the land become available. Thanks again for a great seminar; take care. Scott”

“Thanks Merri for the info. Tell Gary he was right on about closing his position in China.. Good Call.”

“Hi folks, Thank you very much for a superb couple of weeks. I really enjoyed the workshops and my introduction to Ecuador. You are both doing a wonderful job there and it was a pleasure to be part of it for that brief moment. I hope to see you again soon. regards, Steve Margison”

Until then, may all your space be warm wonderful and fulfilled!
