It took me some time to fully understand it but I believe I finally did.
Let me explain...
Whichever profession you are in, whether a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a trader, you can only be effective to the clusters of people who speak your language.
With each additional language you master, whether it is Spanish, Portuguese, Italian or Chinese, the number of cluster just doubles or triples.
The acquired language actually opens up a whole world of new opportunities for you.
If you could understand the power of languages, you would agree that it is definitely one of the investments you must make in yourself at least once in your lifetime.
And, the faster you master one, the better.
Start today, and open a whole new world of opportunities.

Go As Fast As The Black Marlin
The MARLIN LEARNING METHOD caught my attention when I was on my way home from Latin America.
That was back in 2003, I was transiting in London on my way back to Singapore. The commercial printed on the in-flight magazine popped up as I leisurely flipped the pages.
The author promised a method that could unlock the mind, empowering it to master any foreign language with ease and more.
I mailed out the form and then waited several weeks for it to arrive.
The moment it landed in my hands, I devoured the information, highlighted significant portions of it and jot down my thoughts on it.
In fact, I read the book intently from cover to cover more than twice.
Eventually, the Marlin Learning Method became the go-to reference for developing Good Spanish In 8 Weeks™, the course that will be remembered as GSi8W™ in short.
Why develop a Spanish course? Because I was already speaking the language and also I sincerely considered it one of the easier languages for an English speaker to pick up.

I later added a Portuguese course as well, again based on the same principles I had learned
