Immersion learning in Aruba
Hello my friend:
Last night my family and I headed out for an evening of
Italian food. Since the restaurant was not far from our
hotel we decided to walk along the beach to get there.
Along the way, we came upon the most tropical of tropical
restaurants with tables right out on the sand, palm trees
all around, tiki torches everywhere...and of course, big
friendly lizards (18" - 24") not far away hoping for some
food to be tossed their way. Lizards down here in Aruba
are like neighborhood stray dogs begging for food...only
Suddenly, Italian food was out. Dining just yards from
the gentle evening waves with the mild ocean breeze that
would keep us cool was way in.
As our waitress Esther, a tall, dark 25-27 year-old woman,
took our order, I noticed she spoke with an accent but with
very good English. Not appearing to be a native Arubian, I
asked her where she was from. "Holland," she said.
Well, the meal was great, the atmosphere was even better
and the service was terrific. In part, I'm sure, because it
wasn't busy... August is the slowest time for tourism in
Toward the end of our stay, I asked Esther, how long she'd
been in Aruba. "Six months."
How long have you spoken English? "Six months."
She said that she came to Aruba knowing about 10 words of
"No way! You speak English better than I do," I joked.
She laughed and said no, that her "Grammatica" was off
I countered that the word "Grammatica" was the first
incorrect word she'd said the entire time we were there
(and we talked a lot with her, since it was a slow night
Of course, I wondered how she learned English so well so
She said it was just being forced to speak it. Because
along with the native language, Papiamento, even many of
the older generation spoke English. Plus, there were many
American TV channels pumped in via satellite, so that made
it easier too, she said.
So here again in living color, backing up study after
study (and common sense), immersion learning is the
fastest, easiest way to learn languages, new concepts and
Esther spoke so fast in English, it was obvious that she
was not just translating Dutch to English in her head
before she spoke. She was thinking in English.
That is exactly the goal of ALL behavior modification
therapy... to get people to think like those who are
proficient already at a skill. That is what happens with
Think Right Now Accelerated Success Conditioning Programs...
...total immersion into the beliefs, habitual thoughts,
attitudes and emotions of those who are the absolute
best...those who are naturally proficient and those who are
THE most skilled at the inner and outer abilities you want
Not just lecture-type learning. That works for only the
And of course, Think Right Now programs take it a step
further... installing an ability to not just "teach"
positive new mental skills, beliefs and emotions, but also
because of the clearing patterns, they train your mind to
become free of all the habitual, "conditioned-in" limiting
types of thoughts, beliefs, attitudes and emotions.
And learning the inner language of success at a particular
skill or belief system can take a lot less time overall
than becoming fluent and natural sounding in a foreign
The now false belief that "the way you are is the way you
are" and that emotional patterns are hard to change is no
Remember, just 30-40 years ago, hardly anyone in the U.S.
took vitamin supplements. Now we know that they help to
support and improve our health and well-being. And almost
everyone takes at least a multi-vitamin of some kind.
Behavior modification is in the same growth stage that
vitamins were in 30-40 years ago. So it won't be long
before programming successful emotions and action habits
with Think Right Now and other yet-to-be discovered
technologies are the norm.
