"I can't imagine learning as much so fast with any other program"
I have just completed your
Synergy Spanish course and
am thrilled. I can't imagine
learning as much so fast with
any other program. It perfectly
matched my learning style.
I'm going to Mexico next week
and will be able to put what
I've learned to good use right away.
Judith later wrote;
I just returned from Mexico and am sending you a picture taken on my trip. I
was amazed at the amount of Spanish I was able to speak, even having several
get-acquainted "chats" with people. I am moving to Mazatlan next year and am
very motivated to improve my Spanish as quickly as possible. Eagerly
awaiting your next Synergy Spanish course.
"I am learning to say actual sentences"
I took several courses of
Spanish in college several
years ago and could hardly
speak at all and with your
course, I am learning to
say actual sentences - thank you!
"I don't even notice the traffic in Los Angeles while driving home"
I just want to tell you thanks.
I have never seen anyone more
interested in helping people
to speak a foreign language than
making the dollar.
I love the program, I am progressing
well through the program now and can
not wait to listen to the CD on the way
home. I don't even notice the
traffic in Los Angeles while driving home.

"I would never have believed it was possible."
I cannot believe how well I am
reading Spanish as well as
translating English to Spanish.
I would never have believed it
I have reviewed Rocket Spanish,
Learn Spanish Like Crazy, Pimsleur
and I didn't feel the emphasis on
audio was the best method of
teaching people who are visual learners.
I am so excited about this course.
We are going to Peru for two weeks
in November of this year. I am
looking forward to speaking to the
people I meet in their language.
Thank you again for producing a course
that really works
I bought your course and wanted to let you
know how I'm getting on with it.
The combination of audio and written
materials is perfect and the whole
Synergy/Brick verb structure has
really helped me to get to grips
in record time.
I've found it such a pleasure to use.
I feel I'm making huge progress
Thanks for all your hard work in putting
it together Marcus.
All the best,
"This surely must be the best!!!"
I am doing your course and it is exellent !!
This surely must be the best!!!

"I am wowing my friends."
I love the program and I am wowing my friends.
"Its incredible, I am absolutely delighted that I found the course."
This truely has to be the most
exciting thing I have yet experienced,
I must confess though that I have not
been able to fully apply myself, as I am
working and at Ulpan learning Hebrew at
the same time, I also teach english
on weekends, so I have very little spare
time..However in the 3 hours that i have
applied myself, I learned more spanish
than 1 month of hebrew at ulpan...
Its incredible, I am absolutely delighted
that I found the course.
"Synergy Spanish allowed me to communicate with her very quickly"
I really enjoy your lessons. When I met my Mexican girlfriend I spoke no Spanish and she spoke no English. Synergy Spanish allowed me to communicate with her very quickly. Thanks!
Thanks again for a great learning tool.
"Your course and process is fabulous and in my mind you are a genius"
WOW WOW WOW It is exactly what I needed. It is exactly what I hoped it was going to be. BRAVO
I have just started your course and I am thrilled with it, absolutely thrilled. I am writing from work. My business takes me around the world.
I have needed Dutch, Russian, and now I cringed at the thought of Spanish as well. Your course and process is fabulous and in my mind you are a genius. My boss studied 9 languages and started the Swedish course at Harvard and I got him mesmerized with your course. He too has been just not able to get up the energy to begin a whole new language (like me) even though our work needs Spanish (Psychiatrist with Spanish speaking patients increasing) and our international work in Belize.
Boy do I appreciate you.
Thanks a million (two million)
"The easiest program to actually learn conversational Spanish that we can utilize"
My wife and I have deeply enjoyed "Shortcut to Spanish". Out of the four Spanish language systems that we have purchased yours is the easiest and most complete program to actually learn conversational Spanish that we can utilize.
"I am a lot more confident now that I can communicate with the Argentinian Staff"
G'day Mate ! and Hola from Melbourne ,Australia.
I just want to let you know that I am truly enjoying learning to speak Spanish thru Synergy Spanish. I have been attending my Spanish Class for the last three months but I found that I it doesn't sink into my head fast enough. Thank God that I decided to surf the Internet a few weeks ago to find some ways to learn Spanish and came across to your website.

"I have never been very good at languages, but I have breezed through this course"
Well done, I am not usually given to writing letters of praise but on this occasion I feel I have to. I have never been very good at languages, but I have breezed through this course ( and enjoyed doing it ) in two weeks and now I cant wait to practice during my vacation in The Dominican Republic.
"Your courses are challenging at times, but never out of reach, and never boring!"
I love your work! Your courses are perfect for the way I like to learn. The audios and workbooks complement each other well. Your courses are challenging at times, but never out of reach, and never boring! I get a real sense of satisfaction the second time I listen to a lesson and find myself quite able to do it!
Steve later added....
below are some more thoughts on how your work has benefited me already.
"You course helps me at home and at work"
I have four children, and they all are taking Spanish in school. It's nice for me to be learning something that I can share with them -- something we are all in together. But your course is the difference between learning academic Spanish and actually using it. My oldest daughter took four years of high school Spanish and earned A grades, but she and her friends can't communicate verbally as well as I can after a month or two with your audios and workbooks. At work, I manage literacy outreach programs here in Indiana. We have a growing Spanish-speaking population, so most of our outreach is bilingual. I feel like I can relate more to folks who are confronting a new language, which improves my work and will give me added credibility in my career.
All the best, Marcus

"For ten years I have struggled to learn the language. In the last 2 weeks I have learnt more from this (and faster, and easier) than I have in the last 10 years!"
Just a line to say Muchas Gracias Senor!
The Synergy Course is helping me more than anything else I have tried. I work in the UK for a Spanish Company. I don't go to the factory in Spain all that often and the company teaches English to all its employees over there so the only time I get to use Spanish is in the taxi and at the hotel. For ten years I have struggled to learn the language. In the last 2 weeks I have done the first 3 lessons on CD and written. I have learnt more from this (and faster, and easier) than I have in the last 10 years!
Thanks again for your help, it's worth every cent!
"If people only realized what a sense of accomplishment I felt the whole world would sign up for your courses!"
Two of my friend will be subscribing any day now....
Both of them are soooo impressed with the way I'm conversing in Spanish that they pestered me until I fessed up that we're studying with you. You can bet there will be others as well!!!
me gusteria las lecciones en español de Señor Marcus!!!
SUNNY LATER ADDDED
last Sunday we took a little Mexican girl (and her parents) to a waterpark to celebrate her graduation from kindergarten. In the 3 years we've known this family, I have always dreaded spending time with them due to not being able to converse (with any sense at all) with them.
I doubt that I missed more than a couple of words and was able to make myself understood with only a few hesitations. If people only realized what a sense of accomplishment I felt the whole world would sign up for your courses! And, the best part of it is, I had only completed lesson 17 of Synergy and haven't even started on the other courses we've purchased. At this rate, I'm sure I'll be yapping with the best of them by the time I've completed all of your programs. You're the BEST!!!

"It's helped me to speak with my Spanish girlfriend much more easily"
I'm very happy with the Synergy Spanish course, it's helped me to speak with my spanish girlfriend much more easily. She's so surprised with my rapad progress.
I'm looking forward to your Synergy Spanish Level 2 course. Your method of teaching is so effective. I'm a student and everyday on my half an hour walk to college I love to listen and repeat the phrases on my mp3 player,(although everyone on the street has to think I'm loco talking to myself.)
Keep up the good work.
"Comfortable & relaxed conversations with my Canarian friends, even though I have reached the age of 81"
There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind your aproach to teaching the Spanish language is way ahead of the three courses I have taken in the past,the result being a comfortable & relaxed conversation pattern with my Canarian friends no problem even though I have reached the age of 81,keep up the good work.
"I am going to be sorry when I blast through this course and the party is over."
I am at that awkward stage where I am not a total beginner yet I need to move on to the next level. I travel in Mexico frequently and am going to Cuba for a month this December. I appreciate your course and things I struggled with doing university Spanish by correspondence (brutal!) are coming easier. For example, the personal a makes more sense to me now... finally.
I have tried soooo many courses and for the most part they are bloody awful. I am going to be sorry when I blast through this course and the party is over.
Thanks for providing an excellent practical beginner course...
Muchas gracias profesor.

"My co-workers can notice the progress I've made already."
I am writing this e-mail to tell you that I love your course, and my co-workers can notice the progress I've made already.
"Your way of teaching verbs is so good, as I can now make sentences"
I am most impressed with your system of teaching, I have been going to Spain for three months every year for about 20 years, and have never managed to learn any Spanish, though I have half heartedly tried, the main problem was I was in a village where practically everyone spoke English. However last year we moved about 5 miles down the road, and here it is a very diffent story, an emergency came up, and I couldn't deal with it at all, so I decided to try and learn some Spanish, not before time , as I am 78.
I find that I know more words than I thought, but not how to put them into sentences, that is why your way of teaching verbs is so good, (as I can now make sentences).
Your very enthusiastic pupil,
"Your method of teaching is fantastic."
Your course is with no doubt the best I have seen.Your method of teaching is fantastic.
"I am now moving past the fear that stopped me from speaking Spanish before and finally having real conversations!"
First, let me say that your Synergy Spanish course has been amazing for me! I am the son of a Cuban father and an American mother, but was raised in an environment where I never used Spanish. Consequently, I lost all my speaking abilities early on and was always too shy and self-conscious to practice speaking when I had the opportunity.
I am now in a relationship with a woman with limited English capabilities, and with this inspiration, and your course, I am now moving past the fear that stopped me from speaking Spanish before and finally having real conversations!
"My effort was recognised and when I returned I noticed how my bill was cheaper!"
I would like to thank you for creating such a great course. I sampled the free lessons and got hooked very quickly.
I signed up just 2 weeks before I was due to holiday alone in San Pedro de Alcantara. I was off work so I crammed in as much as I could. I took great delight in going into a spanish bar/restaraunt and ordering in spanish. I had been there a few weeks before and they were surly buggers. But this time it was different. I was actually smiled at and chatted to and helped a little with my Spanish.
I didn`t say much but my effort was recognised and when I returned I noticed how my bill was cheaper!
I learned things on the course that I couldn`t yet use, but I just couldn`t resist asking someone, " Le gustaria pasar un fin de semana en Acapulco conmigo?" If only I`d meant it...
I look forward to doing the rest of the lessons, only a little slower this time.
"Oh my Gawwwwwwwwwwd!! How you have made the Spanish language so simple is beyond me!!!"
oh my Gawwwwwwwwwwd!! How you have made the Spanish language so simple is beyond me!!! You have achieved what no-one else seems to be capable of achieving!!
I have been attending Spanish beginners classes for a few weeks now and the teacher still has not encouraged us to make a sentence (one that makes sense anyway!).
I am still learning days of week, months of year and counting to 100. It has tested my boredom threshold and made me feel hugely disappointed in myself that yet again I have failed at learning a language.
But now, thanks to you Marcus, my thirst for learning new words has been re-ignited. And not only that - I actually appear to be very good at it too!!
Thank you once again for simplifying what I thought was going to be a tough journey.
"It really is amazing! You have encapsulated the Spanish language in a very easy to assimilate series of lessons"
I bought your course online and I have found it to be quite brilliant in it's concept and I am quickly learning not to sound like such a "gringo" to my Colombian girl friend.
I would add that as a music teacher I really related to what you said about all music comes from 12 notes - from Mozart to the Beatles and beyond - it really is amazing! You have encapsulated the Spanish language in a very easy to assimilate series of lessons that should be taught to people that don't have allot of time and need to have a working command of the language! Thanks again for making such a wonderful course!!
"I have learned more from your programs than all the different programs I've bought including all three Pimsleur programs"
Thank you,I have learned more from your two programs than I did from all the different programs I've bought over the years including all three Pimsleur programs.
"After living in Tenerife for 3 years I was beginning to despair of ever finding a way to learn the language properly. Since receiving Synergy Spanish my ability to converse with my neighbours has almost doubled"
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and add my praise for your course. After living in Tenerife for 3 years and trying many different teachers and classes I was beginning to despair of ever finding a way to learn the language properly. Since receiving Synergy Spanish last week my ability to converse with my neighbours (who have been very patient with my previous sign language and mispronunciation) has almost doubled over night.....they are as overjoyed as I am.
Your course really is the easiest way I have found to make sense of all the Spanish words I knew but didn't know how to put together.
Keep up the good work
Many many thanks from Los Abrigos.
"I thoughly enjoyed every minute of it."
I've just finished your course and I thoughly enjoyed every minute of it.
"It proves that even this "senior citizen" can learn Spanish"
Excellent course--well worth the modest price! It proves that even this "senior citizen" can learn Spanish. Your course is well-thought-out, student-friendly, and it offered everything your advertisement stated!
"I am 71 years old it has boosted my memory ability greatly, both for learning Spanish and for everyday living"
I finished your course
Your approach is truly wonderful. I am 71 years old & thought my memory was starting to go. Your mnenonic approach is extremely helpful & has boosted my memory ability greatly, both for learning Spanish and for everyday living.
Thank you for the good work.
