Glenn Sterling Ecuador and Cuba


Super Thinking + Spanish teacher, Dr. Glenn Sterling, Cuba and Ecuador

Mark Frakes USA


Super Thinking + Spanish teacher, Mark Frakes (USA).

Mark has always been willing to try new things.  Working in a trauma center as an EMT, teaching public school, creating student groups on college campuses, publishing academic works, practicing real estate agency, and administering a university department are all things he has done.  Several careers and jobs later, he still has lots of stories to tell.  Helping people reach their potential is an important theme throughout Mark’s life.

Although Mark was born in the United States, he feels like he was born to wander the planet. Frankly, it was coincidence, serendipity, fate, karma, or however you want to frame it, when his parents purchased a set of Compton’s Encyclopedia.  The volumes shined with tan covers accented with red and gold trim. Wow, a sight to behold for a ten year old. There was no internet.  He smelled the newness of the pages as he cracked opened the bound volumes. For some unknown reason Mark went straight to the geography, his best and favorite course in school.  There it was – the Iberian Peninsula, Spain and Portugal. Then Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean caught his eye.  These were all places where he wanted to visit so they could reveal their secrets among the people he would meet.  Finally, Mark put his education to use by using those vocabulary words he was supposedly learning in Spanish class through travel in the U.S. and abroad.  He really could have used the “Super Thinking+Spanish” course then.

So when the opportunity arose to take the teacher training of the “Super Thinking+Spanish” course with Gary and Merri Scott, Mark jumped at the chance.  It’s a good fit for who he is. He likes to meet new people and help them deal with challenges.  He’s always chosen the challenge and the path to a life of learning. And yes, he’s fallen in a few pits along the way. Trial and error come with their own unique experiences.

Mark has lived and traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada. He has traveled to various international destinations including Mexico, South Africa, Spain, The Bahamas, and Uruguay.  Mark returns to his educational roots to combine his business and education experience to provide new avenues of opportunity and growth to everyone he meets across the globe.  That is, everyone who wants to learn.  The “Super Thinking+Spanish” course is one of those opportunities.

Mark is ready to deliver the course anywhere in the world.  He’s developing a website called (with a little help from his friends) devoted to all things Hispanic, or as the ancient Romans would say “Hispanicus.” Currently, he’s in the U.S. ready to conduct the “Super Thinking+Spanish” course in St. Louis, MO and Sarasota, FL.  You can reach him at

Ernest’s cultured and artistic nature combined with his interests, his teaching skill set and his love and knowledge of Ecuador serves him well as a Super Thinking Plus Spanish instructor.

Rick Brown


Rick Brown SuperThinking plus Spanish teacher, Toronto, Ontario.

What prompted Rick Brown to first take the Super thinking + Spanish course was a trip to Ecuador where he had some issues communicating.

Rick was born in the province of Quebec and moved to the Greater Toronto Area in 1983. He traveled all over Canada during his twenty one year Military service. He has also visited Germany, Scotland, England, France Italy and Moneco, the USA and Ecuador.

Having spent the last thirty five years in the IT field, Rick is currently working for a Municipal Government in Ontario Canada where he is a Network Administrator and helps manage the Enterprise Data Centre and the Enterprise Backup for his group.

An interest in exporting his retirement south led Rick to us. He attended several courses and tours with us in Ecuador and came back for more the following year. He then joined our course to broaden his Spanish skills and wound up enrolling in Teacher Training course and now teaches Spanish.

Rick has worked in English, French and now Spanish. He looks forward to helping you to reach out and grasp Spanish as well.

What prompted Rick to first take the Super thinking + Spanish course was his first trip to Ecuador where he had some issues communicating. He was quite impressed with the Super Thinking aspects of the lessons and wanted to learn more especially  on the aspects of Whole Brain Learning.

Rick’s Toronto venue for the course is very interesting as it is on the south field of Oshawa Airport. This one of the original British Commonwealth Air Training Plan base from the Second World War.

The actual building is one of four remaining structures from the original base and in it’s day was a originaly a mess hall.  It has been completely redone as a meeting and entertainment facility by the membership of the 420 Wing and is one of very few buildings of it’s type remaining in Canada today.

Rick picked the facility because he is a veteran and the funds from our course rentals assist the Wing in running it’s programs which utilize veterans skills and, reach out to assist older veterans and Cadet organizations.

Shawn and Suzanne Bandick

Super Thinking teachers, Shawn and Suzanne Bandick, (Mexico and B.C.)

In 2001  Suzanne and Shawn Bandick set out on a quest for adventure and a change of culture. They packed up their two kids, and moved from British Columbia, Canada to Mexico. Their  children, now young adults and in search of their own adventure and careers have moved back to Canada but Shawn and Suzanne keep their home base in Puerto Aventuras on the Caribbean coast of Mexico just south of Cancun.

In Canada, they built and trained sales and marketing teams for companies.  They traveled extensively for business and with their children for pleasure. Then came the question, “why do we work so hard just so we can go travel? Why don’t we just go and live abroad?”  Two years later they liquidated down to what would fit in their Toyota 4 runner and headed south.

Once in Mexico, Shawn opened a real estate office which was another fun adventure making tons of new friends and helping them live their dreams.  Suzanne became a writer and a life coach.

They first learned of Super Thinking + Spanish as students and here is their personal testimonial for Super Thinking + Spanish.

This Spanish course has opened up a whole new world of pleasure and ease in communicating for us. We spent ten years in Mexico struggling to learn Spanish feeling overwhelmed and inadequate in the memorization of the hundreds of verbs and the many conjugations of them that all our tutors told us we needed to do. This course changed everything for us. We are thrilled to now be in a space that speaking in Spanish flows for us! We became teachers because of a desire to empower others and hopefully help them avoid the struggle we went through. This method of teaching definitely empowers people! Imagine learning to speak a new language with ease and joy.

What do they love about Mexico?

They love the people, the diversity of the culture, the climate, the history hidden in many of the old cities and the warm sand and palm trees.

Their motto is “Live the Adventure” and invite you to their Super Thinking + Super Spanish class.

The current schedule of Super Thinking + Spanish courses is below.  We can work with you to create your own course at home… or a tour or we can even fit your delegates into an existing course.

After a successful 15+ year career in the recruiting & staffing industry;  co-founding and then founding two successful practices, Spiro found himself wanting a change. He grew enthusiastic about Super Thinking + Spanish while taking the course in an effort to learn Spanish after many years of study, re-study, frustration and false starts.  He found he was finally able to speak Spanish and was thoroughly impressed,  He decided to take the Super thinking + Spanish teacher training program to combine his passion for travel and Spanish culture. He is now traveling around Spanish speaking countries with the purpose of facilitating classes and helping fill the demand of English speakers needing to communicate in their new homes.

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.


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 (  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
