Empowering with profit is a great purpose.

Earning income teaching Super Thinking at home in Playa del Carmen.

Having a purpose created micro business enhances the chances of income longevity and is especially satisfying when it empowers others in the process.

With this thought in mind we started our Super Thinking + Spanish teacher program last year and began training our first dozen teachers.  This year after 12 months of  training they began to set up their own courses and teach.

We are using the stories of success (and failure) in our online continuing education course “Eventful Business – How to Have a Seminar Business”  Here is an excerpt from a recent lesson.

Shawn and Suzanne Bandick taught their first course in Mexico last month.

In 2001 Suzanne and Shawn 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 others to their Super Thinking + Super Spanish class.

Here is a report of their first course.

The Beginning

super-thinking-spanish-mexico tags:2012-5-11

Because we ran into such huge price resistance with the people who were left here at this time and we really wanted to teach a class – we priced it at a special one time introductory locals price.

Everyone was given the same price.

At this time we have four couples and one single registered and paid for a total of nine people.

Two couples paid US dollars to us through Paypal and the rest paid in person in the equivalent in pesos.

It’s great because now we have pre met everyone who will be attending. Everyone is thrilled and grateful for the price and will be walking talking local testimonials for us.

We have no cost for a room as we are holding it in our condo. Even with the purchase of an easel and paper and copies and our Spanish native speaker we will have a nice profit.

Which we are very happy with for a first effort in slow season. Also, we have built up interest for the fall for all that are unable to take it now as they are no longer in town.

After Day One

Wow! Wow! Wow! How happy we are. How rewarding. All 9 students showed up on time, ready and excited. They were all fully participating. Our pronunciation coach is outstanding … and it turns out a neat printer. He worked with us like we have been working together for years. He has perfect clear, concise pronunciation.

Our condo set up great for the class. The day was perfect we had sun on the ocean in the background.

Everyone left day one seeming pretty empowered. Oh and one fellow (who has only been here about 4 months) had his pronunciation change from really bad and struggling at the beginning of the day to showing a really remarkable improvement by the end.

How cool is that?

Feeling good about tomorrow. Thanks again for this great opportunity. Were your ears ringing? We talked about you a lot to the class.

Your proud teachers in Mexico.

Day Two

This was just posted by a student on FaceBook after Day Two

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

Super Thinking Spanish maestros Shawn and Suzanne Marie Bandick are the best!

Yea! Estamos feliz! How exciting is this? We love empowering people!

Just wanted to share so you know that your teachings keep on giving.

Day Three

Students brought me flowers!

Our Spanish speaker was smiling all the time and told us he was very happy to be a part of something so empowering and fun.

He could see the lack of stress on peoples faces and at the end told us he was amazed we found a way to teach such long days without people being bored.

Boy they were really into the relaxation!

super-thinking-spanish-mexico tags:2012-5-11

Here is our whole class …

super-thinking-spanish-mexico tags:2012-5-11

Most everyone took our questionnaires home to email them back to us … I’ll let you know when we know … but I expect good reviews. We could not be more pleased.

I also can’t say enough of how well it turned out that we decided to hold this class in our condo.

We’ll be planning more courses … we are hooked.

Super Thinking + Spanish Class – Case study – Shawn and Suzanne Bandick
Mexico Class – April 26, 27,28, 2012

A slight challenge this time of year in Mexico is most of the foreigners that live here part time have gone home. We knew that when we set the date but we really wanted a class under our belts and to make some money.

We also held the class Thurs/Friday/Sat as we ran into several people who were hesitant to come because Sunday is a church day.

By altering the date by one day we got two more couples to commit.

Everyone prepaid even if it meant we met them for a coffee.

Everyone was thrilled and grateful for the price and now will be walking talking local testimonials for us.

Costs:  We had no cost for a room as we held it in our condo. This worked very well with the addition of some folding tables we had or borrowed placed behind existing couches.

We provided tea, coffee (we had attendees make it as we do not drink coffee) water and snacks (granola bars, oranges, bananas, and some squares I baked) for break time and they went out for lunch.

Our condo actually provided a very personal and relaxed atmosphere. We believe this worked in our favor.

We are very happy with this for a first effort in slow season. Also, we have built up interest for the fall for all that are unable to take it now as they are no longer in town.

What do we get from networking?

We get possible students and definitely new friends. This has turned out to be a very rewarding exercise indeed.

We have a book recommendation: Yes Man by: Danny Wallace … it is the story of a man who decides to say yes to everything. It reminds me of the opportunities we created by getting out and networking.

We have one class planned right now for Canada this summer but are working on possibly two more for while we are there simply by networking with friends and acquaintances.

We also have one more class planned for Mexico in November but have let everyone know if they can pull a group together we will consider a class at any time. We collect names all the time.

After experiencing the full rewards of teaching one class – you bet we want to do more. So many people need this! We are empowering people.


Super Thinking + Spanish empowers people… makes them smarter and often healthier as they learn Spanish too.  This is a good way to profit and have an excellent micro business.

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.  

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 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
