Learn Spanish in how long?  Here are six new Spanish courses in Ecuador for you.

I thought long and hard before deciding to promise we could teach readers to communicate in Spanish in just four days.


Super Thinking teachers in training.  See how to be a teacher here.

Learn Spanish in just four days?  I now know this is not correct.  I lied.

The truth is you can learn to communicate in Spanish in just three days…. if the class is small.


Glenn Sterling teaching Super Thinking.  Glenn will teach five three day Super Thinking classes in Ecuador plus a four day Amazon Spanish camp this March, April and May, 2012.

One delegate (currently in Uruguay) who was so impressed with the course he signed up to be a teacher just wrote: Since this is the first trip to a Spanish speaking country since your training and I must say within just a few days I’m comfortably speaking Spanish with automaticity more than I ever have in my entire life, and every day it just gets better and better.  I am in awe of your system and can’t wait to spread the word on this magical solution of yours!

Honestly the solution is not magical… it’s very scientific even though it includes a lot of fun group participation.  Because of this group work we are able to create a special three day program because when we have 40 delegates the courses takes much longer to conduct than when we have ten.

We are always looking for ways to help you learn Spanish faster… more efficiently and at the lowest possible cost so we have created a new program that has limited attendance.

In the beginning our Spanish courses lasted seven days… then we whittled them down to five and then four.  Now we have figured out how to do this in three days without reducing effectiveness… by limiting attendance so we have started a program to offer more courses to smaller groups.

Our Super Thinking + Spanish course in Mt. Dora March will remain four days but to make it possible to have more smaller classes we have added ten more Super Thinking Plus Spanish courses beyond our existing schedule… one in the Amazon… two on Ecuador’s beach in Bahia, three in Cotacachi and one in Costa Rica (See Costa Rica details here).

The three day Ecuador Super Thinking + Spanish courses are tuned to the Ecuador real estate tours.  Glenn has set his schedule so his courses are taught just before or after Ecuador real estate tours.

Most real estate tour delegates arrive in Ecuador through Quito.  Glenn’s Cotacachi Spanish courses provide a day for him to pick you up bring you to Cotacachi and get you back to your Cuenca real estate tour.  His coastal courses are in Bahia at the La Piedra hotel where the real estate tours start.

You can enroll in a Three Day Super Thinking plus Spanish course on its own and/or combine the course with Ecuador real estate tours as part of a multi course adventure that offers substantial discounts.

Three Day Super Thinking + Spanish courses are made to coordinate (if you like) with real estate tours.

Cuenca Low Stress

Cuenca is a really popular destination for those moving to Ecuador… in part because it is a city… but is also a low stress town.

A delegate from our last Cuenca real estate tour sent this note.

Dear Gary and Merri,  We have recently returned from the Cuenca real estate tour organized by Steven Milden and Xavier Amoroso. The two days were expertly arranged to maximize our delightful experiences in this wonderful country. We compliment Xavier and his real estate team, and especially, Cari, the architect, for their knowledge of the market, and their hospitality following the tour. Your future delegates can feel confident in conducting any real estate business with this company.

I congratulated Stephen who heads up our Cuenca real estate tours and he replied.


Attached is a photo of the Cuenca Team having breakfast at the Hotel El Dorado at the beginning of day 1.

From left to right – Xavier Amoroso (real estate), Caridad Sanchez (my assistant who is also an architect), me, Mauricio Granda (Xavier’s partner).

All are bi-lingual and I consider them friends.

This friendly… no stress atmosphere reflects Ecuador and especially Cuenca… one of the perfect places to be for those who want to live in a city.

Cuenca (full name Santa Ana de los cuatro ríos de Cuenca) is the third largest city in Ecuador by population, which totals 467,000. It is the capital of the Azuay Province. It is located in the highlands of Ecuador at about 2500m (8200 ft) above sea level. The center of the city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Trust site because of its historical buildings.
