Our purpose for years has been to learn better to unite our logic with our intuition so we can better follow the leads that direct us in what we should do.
See how following the lead and how having a purpose can expand your lifestyle… enhance your abundance and make the world a better place.
Because our path of the past 20 years has been so bizarre in many ways, let me share it. This experience may better prepare you whatever you do, wherever you go.
Looking for a purpose led us from this million dollar (plus) home just a few steps from the beach in Naples, Florida with…
this big upstairs study and…
this large downstairs living area plus huge dining room, front and back porches, kitchen and nine bedrooms, four baths to…
this Coleman tent in the Blue Ridge and…
this tin roofed shack in the Andes.
Neither had electricity or running water.
Let me be clear, we had millions in the bank and in assets. We did not have to live like this. We chose to live like this because we felt we were led to do so.
This series is about the importance of following our dreams rather than escaping our nightmares.
If you missed the first six posts, you can click on them here.
The last message, #6 looked at the benefits of having rose colored options.
Message #6 concluded that we can have great adventures, satisfaction and abundance when we follow leads that nature presents even when they seem to make no sense.
The lead you follow should be satisfying and attractive to you. It is our nature is to seek sweet aromas not run from bad smells.
What is even more amazing is that when you follow the lead… and look back you’ll see so much sense you may ask… “Why didn’t I think of that before?”
The future only reveals itself in the present and the past, but there is a rose colored future meant for each of us… that comes when we follow the lead that is presented.
The propelling drive behind these leads is Our Purpose.
I started unknowingly thinking about purpose when Merri and I lived in Naples. We had earned a good income, more than we ever expected, and being fairly frugal were no longer concerned with day to day living costs. We had been busy working (instead of spending) and we did it from our home (few overheads) without staff (even fewer overheads), so a lot of the money that floated by, stuck. After a certain point, each extra dollar became more and more like the sixth cup of coffee in the morning. Not too exciting.
You either understand this or you don’t but Merri and I started to itch for something new. Something had to be scratched, but we did not know what. The itch grew yet remained unscratchable. This resulted in a process many of our friends called “temporary insanity” or some went even further and called it “insanity”.
At that time we appeared to have a perfect life. We owned a wonderful nine bedroom house in Old Naples, one of the most beautiful, perfect cities in the world. We had our comfortable mountain cabin in North Carolina that sat deep in the forest on a rushing creek. This was one of the most traditional areas to get away and recharge.
Plus to really get away we had a condo on a crescent beach in the Dominican Republic, where everything was different and worked outside the Western box of normalcy.
We traveled globally, getting to London several times a year. Other cities regularly visited were Paris, the Prague, Copenhagen, two or three Caribbean stops, all in the name of business, tax deductible trips. Everything was paid for and profitable. No mortgage, no losses, no debt. Our children were happy, healthy and doing well. We had everything we had imagined and more… until it started… that itch. We did not realize that it was our purpose pulling us into the next step.
I thought it began with me, but see now that it really was an outside force moving both Merri and me along. We were like light bulbs thinking the light was ours but the reality was more universal.
This was first noted at the Victoria, Canada airport. We had taken nearly a month off for a deep purification-meditation session with an Indian healer at his remote home on Salt Springs Island. While there this vague itch began to focus itself.
There was no big picture yet (this would take over a decade to resolve), just one tiny first step. I realized we needed to sell our house in Naples and move on. I say this was a tiny first step, but actually this was huge! Merri and I loved that house. Our kids had scattered to the four winds. Fran was in Costa Rica; Cinda in Portland, Ele in London and Cheri and Jake with us in Naples. When one is continually on the move and the family scattered, the grounding of home is important! Our Florida home was perfectly located in the middle of Portland, London and Costa Rica. Those many bedrooms had worked just right, one for Merri and me, one for granny and one for each of the kids, plus two were our offices.
There was one more problem. We had nowhere to go. What would we do? Live in a tent?
I should have asked this question before I scratched my itch in Victoria at the airport because this is what we did!
Victoria, airport at that time had one of the lousiest cafeterias in the world. I will never forget the incredibly 50s sandwich (perhaps that was when it was prepared). Wonder bread and sliced something, with very little, very limp lettuce and cold, rancid butter). I had little enthusiasm as I unwrapped it, but even less enthusiasm for the conversation I was about to begin.
Merri loved our house and Naples. These were her roots for thirty years and I was about to ask her to rip them out. She really loved the place. “More than me”, I thought. Yet the itch was growing. I had to scratch!
“Merri”, I said, “I am going to say something and if you do not agree, let’s forget we even started the conversation.” I was creating lots of back doors for a quick exit on this one.
“You think we should sell our house and move, don’t you?” she said. “I have been feeling the same way and agree. Let’s do it!”
Talk about drop jaw! I was so astounded that I could not talk. My face was so frozen I could not even think about eating that sandwich (this was not a bad thing). I had never even hinted this subject to that moment. So much for spending every night with a woman for 20 years. Or perhaps I talk in my sleep?
The fact that we both arrived in Victoria with the same thinking, at the same time and totally agreed to something that was totally outlandish and illogical should have been the next clue. But again I remind you we were not looking. We had no idea that anything was happening at all. Besides we could never have figured this out.
“Well, that’s settled,” I happily thought, “a 30 second conversation in which we carefully thought through the fact that we are about to uproot what seems, the very essence of our lives, abandon our family, friends, home, career, just about everything. Glad we spent plenty of time on that!”
Over the days, weeks and months that followed, we created a plan. Life was different. Merri refused to tell our staff who helped in the house and gardens that we were selling. She refused to have a sign out front. I continued to tell her how wrong it was that we did not discuss this with those who had helped us for years. But the very week before the house closed, they came and asked to speak to us…they told us that finally they were able to get good jobs in their field (they were all teachers) and they would do their best to help us when they could! What a relief! What a plan that the powers that be had!
In retrospect these changes had been gradually evolving. For instance along the way, circumstances had led Merri and me to learn to meditate. This changed our lives dramatically (for the good). I started talking about how to meditate to be a better investor at my international investing seminars many years ago. Whoa! What a fuss. A lot of my loyal readers did not like this at all. They were like rats jumping a sinking ship. Attendance fell.
I thought this was because the stock market was bad. Now I know better. Our purpose was changing and those of these readers was not.
Back to the house for sale. There we were. We had sold our Dominican condo and the North Carolina cabin. We had our house in Naples for sale and we were changing our entire way of life.
Still we did not know why. Nothing had happened in Naples.
The house just sat there for sale and would not move. Good thing too, because we did not have a new place to go.
We finally bought a farm in the Blue Ridge and also bought a 950+ acre hacienda Rosapamba deep in the Andes. The second those sales went through… our house in Naples sold.
In fact it sold too soon because neither the farm nor the hacienda had a house in which we could live. We moved into a tent. Does this seem strange, moving from a huge, nine bedroom house into a 80 square foot COLEMAN tent. Merri and I felt strangely proud though we still did not understand why.
Many of our friends and family probably began checking to see they could have us certified. We began fixing an old Johnny Appleseed farm house and I continued to write what I am sure many readers said were, “strange things.”
We noticed that both properties had previously been used for transformation. The Blue Ridge farm had been a corn mill… Rosaspamba a sugar mill. Both places still had old grinding equipment there.
We have many water falls at our farm in the Blue Ridge.
We have a huge water fall at Hacienda Rosaspamba. Here is our hound enjoying this Andean land.
We had moved from a million dollar house in Naples, Florida to tents and shacks. Not logical in business terms. Did it make us happy? Giddy is a better word perhaps.
As you’ll see it also led us to another fortune… a most logical investing and business decision that came… in a most illogical way.
One one of our very first Ecuador tours we met the Taita Yatchak… became involved and he ended up moving to our hacienda with his apprentices and we lived there… the yatchak and the apprentices in the house. Merri and I took the shack… for a number of reasons… but it did show these wonderful people that Westerners are not all about material comfort.
Merri and I learned a lot from this wise man… but one of the most important messages he shared with us seems especially relevant now.
He used to say “Have a purpose instead of a goal”.
I spent some time pondering this before it had meaning to me. Goals are what we make with our logic. Yet logic is never enough. There is way too much we do not know to have our goals turn out as we expect. A purpose is far wiser… infinitely more flexible… capable of rolling with punches and shifting with change.
This is when our bigger picture was to learn how to unite the powerful intuition that Merri had gained from her Native American grandmother with logic and to help others feel this as well.
The economic and lifestyle goals of many will change with the economic turbulence ahead. Those who are strongly cemented in a broad purpose have an advantage. They might be knocked sideways by changing financial tides, but they’ll get up… dust off and move on with their purpose… because a purpose is not limited by size… duration or magnitude. We can move on with a purpose regardless of external events. Action in down times is easier… more productive and can take advantage of the value created on the downside of every curve. Those depending on goals and mathematical bottom lines can lay stricken by their shattered logical goals.
This is why we try to invest and do business with a purpose and always remember the quote I have framed on my desk… “Action is Thy Duty… Reward Not Thy Concern”. We keep moving forward with our purpose without great concern with where the currents carry our correct actions.
How can we define a purpose?
Winston Churchill is quoted as saying: It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see.
There is no way I could have seen tht Ecuador was about to become a big country… just as when I landed in Hong Kong in 1968… I could not have figured out that it was the place to be as one of the first emerging markets to emerge.
We originally were conducting shamanic tours… sharing with readers about the spiritual side of Ecuador… then around 2000 the Ecuadorian economy collapsed, the sucre slid from 3,000 per dollar to 25,000 per dollar. Real estate became so cheap we had to do real estate tours as we had in London, Isle of Man, Dominican Republic before.
We were once again without thought, without research, on the investing leading edge. Business boomed.
Luck? Perhaps… except this is not the first time… by closing our eyes and following how we felt… rather than what we saw, we have stumbled on good luck while trying to do something else.
That moment gave Merri and me confidence that hunches and intuition are more than wild imagination.
They are a form of communication that go beyond what our brain can sort out in finite terms. A seed of belief was planted, those many years ago, that has grown as we have cultivated it with trial, error and experience.
Yet our purposes to help people learn to integrate their logic and intuition and to be more feeling remained the same.
We bought our Inn in Cotacachi on a hunch. We bought a block of condos after exchanging a 15 second glance. Again and again we have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars based on “illogical” hunches.
Our Ecuador business was absolutely booming. Our hotel was fully booked again and again. We were swamped even with the slow global economy. Our Ecuador real estate appreciated despite a Western real estate crash.
The Ecuador business was pouring in and yet we were thinking about Small Town USA.
Let me outline the crazy illogical reason why.
First, when we were in Florida in many years later on our way to Ecuador I saw real estate prices that were real bargains…maybe even better than in Ecuador. We were so impressed with Florida real estate that we hired our daughter, Cheri, part time to take a look.
But that would not have been enough. We are early in early out people but Ecuador’s cost of living was still so much lower… life so much simpler… business was so good.
Once again we were led by a chain of illogical events.
Susan Rotman, our business psychic consultant, sent an electronic card… all about US patriotic songs and sights. See the card here.
This card is very patriotic… very not Merri and me. Susan knew it as well.
“Okay, what’s this about?” We emailed her.
She replied: “Interesting–I woke up yesterday morning from having a dream about you and Merri. As delightful as you both are, I have never dreamed about you before! And it was from that I was moved to send you the card“.
We called and asked for a consultation. During our talk, she said she dislikes Florida but saw us spending time there.
Then whatever you wish to call it (intuition, fate, God, Guardian Angel) started hammering me with a series of events.
Merri had been saying for the last year, “It’s time for you to write another book”. I had been resisting. “Too busy…doing what we’re doing,” I kept thinking.
In our February 2009 course three people showed up with my old books. The first had my novel, the 65th Octave, and said, “I did not even realize at first that you were the same Gary Scott who wrote that book. I bought it years ago in a Houston health food store. When are you going to write another book?”
The next delegate had a 65th copy as well. She told me how she had purchased it used from someone else in her city and asked me to autograph it. “When is the sequel coming?”, she asked.
The third delegate, an Australian showed up with a 30 year old copy of the first book I ever wrote, “Passport to International Profit.” A pilot gave it to him years ago when he was a steward on Qantas Airlines. He asked me to autograph it and inquired, “When’s the next coming?”
I listened. Never in decades has even one delegate arrived at my course with one of my books. This one course had three!
Plus our Super Thinking + Spanish courses were really growing and the potential for conducting these courses through teachers in the USA was so much stronger than having them in Ecuador.
Enough. Enough. I got the point and we headed back to Small Town USA and returned to buying property (agricultural). We had a desire to help those of you who wanted a simpler life but perhaps didn’t want to live in another country.
For totally illogical non linear reasons we saw once again time to make some changes… walking the path… our eyes closed… feeling our way… following the vision as it presents itself. This is adventure and the outcome has been interesting and the Spanish program has soared… using a program that helps unite logic and intuition.
During times like the present, the economic turmoil creates extra potential for great wealth… satisfaction… fulfillment…happiness… joy…. growth… if we can escape the Tyranny of Reason and use our inner vision.
This is a time of change and the old ways will no longer work. We need insight and vision to guide us because the best ways ahead have not been seen before.
So the next time you need a miracle…do not deny that one can happen. The next time you have done your due diligence and some small niggling idea reaches you, act on it. This does not mean you should stop working nor that you should quit using due diligence. The idea is to fuse the intellect and intuition, not abandon nor honor one over the other. They work best as a team!
Nor does it mean you should go out and risk all on a hunch.
Start small… all things should start small and grow.
Nor does it mean you will not have to work. Often the hunches have led us to incredible amounts of labor.
You already possess connections to infinite knowledge. Your mind cannot grapple this because the act of defining defeats the very thing you are connected to. However, if you let go and let your intuition lead you, you too may have some wonderful surprises and luck that after awhile will not be surprising at all!
During this time, we look forward to helping our readers use the natural gifts within to integrate the deepest levels of intelligence as Ecuador shamans do.
Until next message, may all of your surprises and luck bring richness to your life.
This era for us is the third of three circles where ideas of the Eagle (mind) and Condor (heart) can be brought together. We look forward to sharing them with you.

The “Learn Spanish in Three Day Course” is now available online.
Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.
Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own. You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries. You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA. Spanish is the second most used language in the USA. There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined. According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US. This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all.
You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish. Yet there are more benefits.
An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence. The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling. It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English. Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process. The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”
The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.
#1: You become smarter
#2: You build multitasking skills
#3: You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4: Your memory improves
#5: You become more perceptive
#6: Your decision-making skills improve
#7: You improve your English
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.
Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned 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!
This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.
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 70s. 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 delegates 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 in the learning process. At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov. Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.
The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time. Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.
Here is the proof.
“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”
There you have it. How long did it take you to read the sentence? You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.
See examples of the words you already know below.
How long would have taken you to memorize all those words? How soon would you have forgotten them?
This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.
The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.
Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.
The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds). This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.
Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.
Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.
By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.
Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic. This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.
I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador. The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became. My second language was automatically improving. The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them. The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls. When your mind creates something… it owns it! You do not have to remember .
During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .
You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.
Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.
When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised . You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

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.”
