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.

The Accelerated Learning Method
I first came across the term Accelerated Learning from an advert I read on an in-flight magazine back in the 2003 on my way back from Latin America.
The method promised to unlock the mind, to aid in mastering a foreign language with ease and more.
The notion interested me so much that I immediately placed an order for the book.
Needless to say, I waited eagerly for the book and devoured it the moment in landed in my hands.
In fact, I read the book intently from cover to cover more than twice, highlighted significant portions of it and jot down my thoughts on it.
The book became the go-to reference as I developed Good Spanish In 8 Weeks™ (or GSi8W™), the course that will be remembered as GSi8W™ in short.
I know, I am being biased here. Why do I keep talking about the Spanish language?
Frankly, it is because I sincerely think that it is one of the easier languages for an English speaker to pick up.
And, having mastered Spanish, the next most obvious choice would be Portuguese - at least that is what my experience taught me.
