Health Care Savings II

Last Friday’s message Alternative Health Care Costs looked at the high cost of Western medicine and the need for alternatives.

Here is an alternative food that is inexpensive, delicious and can be prepared in many ways…

quinoa-chocolate-pancakes

Quinoa…the superfood….here above: quinoa pancakes and quinoa strawberry shortcake.  (See the recipe for both below.)

The economic downturn is making this problem of high health care costs worse.  This is why we are sharing a delicious way to beat high health care costs below.

The December 2011 New York Times article “Nowhere to Go, Patients Linger in Hospitals, at a High Cost” by Sam Roberts shows one reason how health care supply and demand differs from most products and services.  Here is an excerpt:  Hundreds of patients have been languishing for months or even years in New York City hospitals, despite being well enough to be sent home or to nursing centers for less-expensive care, because they are illegal immigrants or lack sufficient insurance or appropriate housing.

As a result, hospitals are absorbing the bill for millions of dollars in unreimbursed expenses annually while the patients, trapped in bureaucratic limbo, are sometimes deprived of services that could be provided elsewhere at a small fraction of the cost.

Medicaid often pays for emergency care for illegal immigrants, but not for continuing care, and many hospitals in places with large concentrations of illegal immigrants, like Texas, California and Florida, face the quandary of where to send patients well enough to leave.

One patient, a former hospital technician from Queens, has lived at the city’s Coler-Goldwater Specialty Hospital and Nursing Facility on Roosevelt Island for 13 years because the hospital has no place to send him, Ms. Brown said.

Five years ago, Yu Kang Fu, 58, who lived in Flushing, Queens, and was a cook at a Chinese restaurant in New Jersey, was dropped off by his boss at New York Downtown Hospital, a private institution in Manhattan, complaining of a severe headache. Mr. Yu was admitted to the intensive-care unit with a stroke.

Within days, he was well enough for hospital personnel to begin planning for his release, but as an illegal immigrant (he had overstayed a work visa a decade ago), he was ineligible for health benefits. And no nursing home or rehabilitation center would take him. Neither would his son in China nor the Chinese government, although the hospital volunteered to fly him there at its expense.  Yu remained in the hospital for over four years.

Health professionals refer to them as “permanent patients,” trussed in red tape and essentially living in hospitals already operating on thin margins. In some cases, health care professionals say, grown children leave ailing parents at the hospitals and go on vacation. Officials call that practice a “pop drop.”

In the normal course of business if a customer cannot pay he cannot have the product or service.  Health care is different so the costs of those who cannot pay must be absorbed by those who can.  In difficult economic times the number of those who cannot pay rises which increases the health care costs of even those who struggle.

This is one reason why… along with the new health care plan Health insurance rose 9% in 2011.  This is also why even though other prices may stagnate… health care costs are likely to continue this upwards trend.

History suggests that all great societies move through a bell shaped curve.  They struggle in infancy… have their golden era and then sift into decline.

In the decline the establishment usually falter in at least seven key areas.

#1: Postal Service

#2: Police

#3: Military

#4: Education

#5: Currency

#6: Farming

#7: Health Care

What more need I say?

This does not mean we have to suffer. The Roman empire disintegrated more than millennium ago… yet Italy is still a great place to live and offers enormous opportunity for many.

We in the West have been in the past 70 years being in exactly the right place at the right time.  We have lived in a wonderful golden era.  Yet one cannot depend on this always and being aware of the reality in circumstances and adapting are equally important to choosing a place to be.

One current reality in the West… especially the USA is that health care has lost its edge and costs have skyrocketed beyond the ability of many to pay.  The current litigious legal framework… the current legislation and regulation… faltering economy and aging demographics suggest that the cost of health care will continue to soar… it is wise to find alternatives.

The best alternative to rising health care costs is good health.   Lifestyle shifts are the easiest way to attain better health and the most important place to start is with nutrition.

This is why we love quinoa.

The Western nutritional template is high glycemic.  We in the West are bombarded with food (and ads that lead us to them) that encourage hyperglycemia.  This fits nicely with a profitable economic model for food processing companies.  Starchy, sugary foods are typically inexpensive and they are addictive.  Our brain is smart. It wants lots of glucose. When we give it to the brain it becomes habituated and learns how to create chemistry so that our body demands more fast burning carbs.

One has to work hard in the West to avoid a high glucose diet.  Most stores and restaurants favor high glycemic food.   In short one has to go out of the way to avoid habit forming nutritional traps that a huge chunk of daily commerce is using to capture us.  The three main food groups of the West are sugar, grease and flour… liberally doused with caffeine!

This is even harder for those with Gluten intolerance as well.  One reader wrote about the article: Gary, Great info today.  Can’t wait to try quinoa, as I’m one of those gluten casualties, which makes it hard to get bulk in my diet.   People in the US are killing themselves with their diets…even farm-fresh veggies have so much pesticides in them that they are unhealthy.  Now farmers don’t have to plow under their crops as there is a chemical that dissolves them.  That can’t be healthy as it becomes part of the soil.

Quinoa is a weapon we can use to beat  the high glucose attack.  The ideal combination in the human diet is about three parts slow burning carb… two parts protein and one part fat. Most modern foods throw this off because fast buring carbs are cheap to produce… and create a demand to eat more and are habituating.  Protein is expensive to produce and satisfies so we eat less. That’s good for the person but bad for the food business and most big food businesses are more interested in profits than their customers health.

Quinoa can replace flour… rice and corn… the holy trinity in the armory of the food producers glucose attack!  Quinoa can also be used to replace cereals and pasta.

Merri used a quinoa dressing this past Thanksgiving turning the turkey stuffing from a glucose bomb into a protein treat.  On New Year’s Day we always follow a southern tradition to have the simplest of meals… black eyed peas… greens and corn bread.   According to southern custom, this brings prosperity for the year.

This year Merri made quinoa bread instead of corn bread. It was delicious and made this a much more balanced meal.

Since I have a sweet tooth I use quinoa to allow me to be naughty… but nice.  Here is a reprint of how I do that with my nutritional nemisis, the occasional pancake… and more.

First  Merri shares here a recipe for quinoa cornbread.

2 cups of quinoa flakes (or I just blend uncooked quinoa for 3 minutes or so)

1 1/3 cups of milk (goat’s milk is also excellent)

1/4 cup excellent quality oil

1/2 tsp. of baking powder

2 eggs

Stir together and bake in a pie dish for 20 minutes at 350 degrees (or until brown on top). 

Quinoa is healthy, packed with protein and omega 3.

Let me begin though by explaining my love affair with pancakes… then why quinoa pancakes and shortcake can add a huge improvement in the Western diet.

Some memories are never forgotten. Some of them quite odd, such as my recollection of when I fell in love with pancakes.

The place was Tillamook, Oregon… a town famous for its cheddar cheese but I doubt famous for its pancakes.  The time…  almost 47 years ago. I must have been around 16 because I had driven with several of my teenage friends to spend the weekend in Seaside, Oregon… the place, in the 1960s, where teenagers from Portland went to hang out.

Action by the way in those days amounted to bumper cars, Ferris wheels and stuff like cotton candy.  There wasn’t much in those days… though if we could have found some we would have imbibed in beer…  as terrible as it tasted to a 16 year old… drinking beer was considered cool then.  Of course for teenage guys… there were also teenage girls.  I think there was a beach and an ocean there too!

Four or five us… high school buddies wandered on weekends…. usually camping out…. sometimes in the Cascades… other times over in the Eastern Oregon desert… shooting our .22s… fishing,.. swimming in lakes and in general just messing around.

Somehow this one memory from many weekends has me in a “mom and pop” restaurant… in Tillamook.   We stopped for breakfast on a Sunday morning… headed back from Seaside to Portland.   I ordered a stack of pancakes… probably a short stack since one thing I really remember  was that we were almost always short of cash.  Back then coffee was a dime a cup (with refills)… gas 19.9 cents a gallon and a short stack… maybe .65 cents.  Camping then in state parks was free.   However we were still usually broke. However with five bucks each, the four of us could do some damage.  One of the friends… Mark Johnson… had a beat up, rusting 1956 Ford station wagon (we called it the Blue Goose) so if we each pitched in a dollar… there was enough for the gallons of gas (and the several quarts of oil)  required to get us to the coast and back.

I recall nothing about the trip… not the beach… not the girls… not even the restaurant… except my awareness on that day of how much I loved those pancakes!  The love affair stuck.

With this story as a background it will not seem odd that when Merri and I lived in London we sometimes visited one of the most renowned pancake restaurants there called, My Old Dutch, which offers authentic Pannekoek (that’s a traditional Dutch pancake).   The kids loved the friendly, bubbly atmosphere and I of course loved… the pancakes offered in both sweet and savory form.

dutch-pancake

There are crazy combinations at My Old Dutch… chicken curry pancakes… chili con carne pancakes and lamb stew pancakes.  I personally preferred one of the sweet ones served with a caramel sauce.  But note the common connection here… pancakes!

Now comes the rub. Pancakes are a truly unhealthy food… especially when loaded up with artificial sugary syrup. A big platter of pancakes and syrup is a fast burning carbohydrate disaster almost guaranteed to shoot blood sugar up!   This can create all forms of health complications if consumed often enough.  A platter is probably even worse when no sugar syrup contaminated with artificial sweeteners is applied.

I rue the day I discovered this… like learning that your lover is really only there to kill you (perhaps for the insurance).

Alas… chocolate pancakes… with the wrong chocolate… is nutritionally even worse!

What a dilemma … being in love with something that is really bad.

However I know there is a God because… He allowed me to discover quinoa pancakes.

Quinoa is a high protein grain from the Andes that is normally eaten as a cereal.  Quinoa can be ground into flour.  Quinoa flour changes everything when it comes to nutrition in pancakes… the lover is reformed!

Having spent this time explaining pancakes in my epicurian heart… the story on my other food mistress chocolate, we must pass.   Let’s just compare pancakes and chocolate to wine & rose… man & woman… the heaven & the stars.

First, quinoa is high in protein… one of the only vegetable sources of a complete protein.

Second, quinoa has a fair amount of omega 3 essential fatty acids.

(If you have not read much about Omega 3… you should because there is a growing amount of evidence that an imbalance in the Western between Omega 3 and Omega 6  is leading to all types of problems including obesity.)

The excerpt below from a May 2010 Economist article “Diet and the evolution of the brain-Fish and no chips” gives us some insights on this when it says:
The wonders of docosahexaenoic acid

TO PIN one big evolutionary shift on a particular molecule is ambitious. To pin two on it is truly audacious. Yet doing so was just one of the ideas floating around at “A Celebration of DHA” in London this week. The celebration in question was a scientific meeting, rather than a festival. It was definitely, however, a love-in. It was held on May 26th and 27th at the Royal Society of Medicine to discuss the many virtues of docosahexaenoic acid, the most important of that fashionable class of dietary chemicals, the omega-3 fatty acids.

DHA is a component of brains, particularly the synaptic junctions between nerve cells, and its displacement from modern diets by the omega-6 acids in cooking oils such as soya, maize and rape is a cause of worry. Many researchers think this shift—and the change in brain chemistry that it causes—explains the growth in recent times of depression, manic-depression, memory loss, schizophrenia and attention-deficit disorder. It may also be responsible for rising levels of obesity and thus the heart disease which often accompanies being overweight.

Michael Crawford, a researcher at the Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition in London, believes, however, that DHA is even more important than that.

He suggests that it was responsible for the existence of nervous systems in the first place, and that access to large quantities of the stuff was what permitted the evolution of big brains in mankind’s more recent ancestors.

Indeed, Dr Crawford thinks that a shortage of DHA is a long-term evolutionary theme. The molecule is most famously found in fatty fish. He suggests this might explain why, for example, dolphins have brains that weigh 1.8kg whereas zebra brains weigh only 350g, even though the two species have similar body sizes. Furthermore, he argues that the dramatic increase of the size of the brains of humanity’s ancestors that happened about 6m years ago was not because apes came out of the trees to hunt on the savannahs, but because they arrived at the coast and found a ready supply of DHA in fish.

Accept no substitute

Joseph Hibbeln, a researcher at America’s National Institutes of Health, has been looking at the supply to babies of DHA from breast milk and at genetic variation in the ability to produce this molecule from other omega-3s.  In the case of those fed on formula milk low in DHA, though, children without the DHA-making ability had an average IQ 7.8 points lower than those with it.

Nor is intelligence the only thing affected by a lack of DHA. There is also a body of data linking omega-3 deficiencies to violent behaviour. Countries whose citizens eat more fish (which is rich in DHA) are less prone to depression, suicide and murder. And new research by Dr Hibbeln shows that low levels of DHA are a risk factor for suicide among American servicemen and women. Actual suicides had significantly lower levels of DHA in the most recent routine blood sample taken before they killed themselves than did comparable personnel who remained alive.

More worryingly, 95% of American troops have DHA levels that these results suggest put them at risk of suicide.

America’s department of defence has taken note. It will soon unveil a programme to supplement the diets of soldiers with omega-3s. The country’s Food and Drug Administration may change one of its policies, too. Thomas Brenna, a professor of nutrition at Cornell University, has written a letter (co-signed by many of the scientists at the meeting) urging the agency to revise its advice to pregnant and fertile women that they limit their consumption of fish.

They may, however, be swimming against the tide. The popularity of omega-6-rich foods based on cheap vegetable oils will be difficult to reverse. Indeed, if another of Dr Hibbeln’s studies proves true of people as well as rodents, it may be self-fulfilling.

In this experiment he fed rats diets that were identical except that in one case 8% of the calories came from linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid) while in the other that value was 1%. These percentages reflect the shift in the proportion of omega-6s in the American diet between 1909 and the early 21st century.

In the 8% diet, levels of rat obesity doubled. It turns out that in rats (and also in humans) linoleic acid is converted into molecules called endocannabinoids that trigger appetite. Those who eat omega-6s, in other words, want to eat more food.

And since, in the human case, omega-6-rich food is much cheaper than omega-3-rich food, that is what they are likely to consume.

The way out of this vicious circle is not obvious. Eating fish is all very well, but the oceans are under enough pressure as it is.

Quinoa, a 5000 + year old grain from the Andes is full of essential amino acids, iron and vitamins. It is probably the best protein source from the plant kingdom and has a delicious delicate nutty taste ideal.

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, quinoa offers benefits to the heart and is easy to digest as well.

Quinoa has been rated by the WHO as possessing protein of a quality similar to milk. It has been classified as a supercrop by the United Nations on account of its nutritional value and high protein content. 

In early times, quinoa was cooked and ground to a paste and applied on bruises. Its medicinal uses ranged from treating motion sickness and appendicitis to bone problems and nursing mothers.  In fact a poultice of quinoa flour was applied on broken bones. It is a good source of dietary fiber.  Quinoa is ideal for those suffering from allergies to the grass family since it is a leafy grain and is gluten-free.

Quinoa is also a source of phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese, Vitamins B6, Niacin and Thiamin and has high levels of lysine – an essential amino acid for creating protein. Plus it is low in fat and excellent source of complex carbohydrates.

Most Westerners need to be getting more Omega 3 and less Omega 6 and quinoa can help… plus it can be cooked in some really delicious forms.

With quinoa to add protein and pure Ecuadorian chocolate without chemicals and sugar added there is a good nutrition argument… two lovers who can be good for your health!

A reader recently sent this note.

Hi Gary…really enjoy your columns. Am fascinated with Quinoa. Any chance you could share the recipe for the chocolate quinoa pancakes?

What a wonderful woman… asking me to do something with one of the great loves in my life…. chocolate!  So I grabbed Merri gave her a kiss and murmered in her ear… “Will you make some chocolate quinoa pancakes?”

Below is a recipe for the quinoa strawberry shortcake that Merri made for me.

I photographed this before eating. Yum!

ecuador-food

“Well, one of the problems that most of us have is Strawberries (yes!) but then we go a bit further and want Strawberry Shortcake.  Gary always steers me near those horrible little cakes when he has just been to the farmer’s market and bought luscious strawberries.  So, all I do when making almost anything with flour is to simply substitute fine ground (we do it ourselves in our blender) quinoa for flour.  However, this does change 1)the consistency of the batter (perhaps one needs to add more liquid) and 2)makes a firmer, stronger product no light and fluffy quinoa here! This might require a bit of change of expectations if one desires those little light airy concoctions…but think PROTEIN and low CARBS.

“Strawberry Quinoa Shortcakes:

“1 cup quinoa flour,  1/2-3/4 tbs. baking powder, a tiny bit of all natural sugar (to your taste), 7 tbs. of butter (or a good oil) cut into pieces, 1 egg, 1/2 – 3/4 cup of rich milk (perhaps half and half).  Strawberries & Cream to add on top.

“Cut butter into the dry mixture.  Mix egg with rich milk and combine with dry ingredients.  Bake 12 minutes or so until golden brown at 350.

“Serve with strawberries and of course cream or whipped cream!”  Merri

Yes, it was wonderful…Sunday afternoon Strawberry Shortcakes with Tea.

Also, we often fortify all of our pancakes, waffles, “cornbread” a bit further by adding an excellent source of whey powdered protein…this really brings up the balance of protein…and one feels very satisfied.

One reader asked: Gary, I look at your e-mails regularly.  I would suggest that  if you send a recipe eg. quinoa that we don’t need to see all of the pages and many pictures I’ve seen before .  Thank you.

So you can see all of Merri’s quinoa recipes without pictures and other text here.

We have two places left in the January course that starts this Thursday.

Learn Spanish in Three Days

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Three Days

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

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

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

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

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

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

This course is now available online.

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

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

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

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. 

For example action is accion.

Education-educacion.

Manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read these four sentences? 

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

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

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

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

The third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

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

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

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

In an incredibly short time you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

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

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving.  The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.

The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

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

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

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

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

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

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but in this special offer we are knocking another $70 from the price so you can start now for only $79.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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