East Orange, NJ (PRWEB) February 9, 2006
By accessing the newly launched website http://www.spanishfast.us, everyone can try out sample lessons of an accelerated learning technique called Fast Immersion. When learners employ this method, they can speak Spanish fluently in 1-3 weeks. Dr. Carolyn Thorburn, president of ERC Language School used her innovative approach to learn Chinese and Italian in even less time.
To enable her students to speak the language so quickly, Dr. Thorburn, first teaches them one verb, which they may repeat as many as a 1000 times so they can assimilate the structure of the language. She calls her unique conversational technique of asking and answering questions: Fast Immersion. Once learners master the system, they can use it to learn about 5 verbs a day and achieve a vocabulary of 100 verbs and a 1000 words in approximately 3 weeks. The approach works with any language.
Read what one happy user says:
After spending several years in both high school and collegiate Spanish courses and invariably learning nothing, I am pleased to have stumbled upon your method of "mastering" Spanish. After a considerable amount of time and money wasted, I had concluded that I was simply unable to learn a second language.
Fortunately, after working with your book, I realize that my assumption was incorrect as I am well on my way to becoming conversationally fluent by my target date still two weeks away. I am looking forward to a wonderful, productive and fluent time in Madrid thanks to you.

Fast Immersion Gets You Speaking Fast, in 2 weeks or Even 2 Days
When Dr. Thorburn visited China after studying Chinese a new acquaintance asked her how long she had been studying Chinese. One year? Two years? No, she replied: “2 weeks.” She learned to speak Italian even faster. She was a tour guide for an Italian Naval officer in
New York City who couldn’t speak English, so she had to learn to communicate rather quickly in Italian. After 2 days, which included 17 hours of intensive conversation with him, she could express herself fairly well in basic Italian in the present and past tense. At the end of this experience she was excited to realize that Fast Immersion really does work even in as little time as 2 days.
To teach her method, Dr. Thorburn has written a 800 page self-instructional text, Complete Mastery of Spanish with 38 amusing dialogues and 17 grammar units. In a 300 page workbook she gives step-by-step instructions for total verb mastery by teaching students to ask and answer questions spontaneously. Cassette tapes or CD’s correspond to the written material so learners soon are able to speak, understand, read and write fluently with precision and expertise.
Her program solves the problem of people who want to learn quickly and effortlessly without many months and years of study. It is for everyone from grammar, high school and college students to travelers and professionals. It’s perfect for home schoolers or anyone who wishes to master the beginning to the advanced aspects of Spanish including the third year of college work. The Table of Contents, which can be seen on the website, reveals why it is the most comprehensive self-study book on the market.
Dr. Thorburn offers private tutoring, 3 to 6 hour workshops, weekend retreats, special cruises, and a limited number of telephone lessons. By special arrangement she also teaches corporate seminars.
About Dr. Thorburn
Dr. Thorburn has been teaching Spanish on the college level for over 40 years. She was inspired to write her self-study text because students used to enter her class as much as 2 weeks late, and were confused and frustrated since they could not understand the dialogues written only in Spanish. To help her students avoid this frustration, she wrote her text with the Spanish and English translation appearing side-by-side on the same page.
In addition, to make learning even easier, she broke down explanations in a step-by-step manner so students could in fact teach themselves. Although she developed Fast Immersion during her college teaching years, she has continued to fine tune the method at the ERC Language School which she started thirteen years ago. Using her revolutionary method she taught herself Russian, Portuguese, German, Italian and Chinese. And now for the first time, she has introduced the method on the internet at her new website: spanishfast.us
Dr. Thorburn has appeared on many Radio and TV Talk Shows including Tony Brown’s Journal. She was interviewed by Bill Cosby who was impressed with her Spanish program and her ability to speak Spanish, French, Italian and Russian.
