The Authors' Journey to Uncover "The Future of Learning"

“Education has become such a big national issue and I haven’t seen one single thing done that would really improve our educational system. Nowhere is there an indication that we should look at the way we teach, or find an innovative way to teach.”
Michel Thomas, creator of the Michel Thomas Method.

This book is about a magnificent journey that began in 1997. At that time, a mutual acquaintance, who attended one of the modeling trainings we had conducted several years previously, began talking to us about an incredible educator who was able to teach a foreign language in as little as 3-5 days. His name was Michel Thomas...

Of course, it sounded too good to be true. After all, within our current educational system, it takes years to learn a foreign language. In fact, most people never are able to actually speak and read the language, because they keep on trying to memorize.

For years my husband/partner, Wyatt, and I have been modeling experts (determining how they do what they do) and conducting our own research on learning and creativity, so we were obviously intrigued by all that we were hearing and wanted to know more. It seemed so outside of the realm of reality that someone could actually teach a person to speak a foreign language proficiently in what seemed to be nanoseconds, that we agreed it would be a fascinating modeling project on which to work.


Connecting to Michel and The Truth About Learning Quickly

The process of connecting with Michel Thomas was a long one, given our mutually busy schedules. In addition, Michel was a cautious man and we had to gain his trust and approval before beginning.

It seems that over the years, Michel had been reluctant to share the secrets of his method with anyone for fear of having others steal them. In fact, he had mentioned to us on several occasions that there were individuals who were trying to learn his secrets and then announce them to the world as their own. Meanwhile, academia was not reacting in a favorable way, insisting that what Michel was doing was outright impossible.

We all knew that it was of utmost importance to “capture” his method while he was still here with us. A sense of urgency had taken over. Finally, in 2001, we had the pleasure of meeting Michel, whom we call the Master Teacher; and the wonderfully intriguing and enriching journey through Michel’s mind began.


Urgency to Make the Impossible...Possible!

Up until then, Michel was not ready to reveal his method. Then suddenly, it was obvious that a similar sense of urgency had come over Michel as well. He realized that the time had come to share his cherished method, that he could no longer keep this invaluable gift to himself.

And now, after hours and hours of elicitation as part of our proprietary modeling process,

  • after days and days of questions and answers,

  • after the joyous experience of being a student of Michel’s in order to go through a personalized learning experience with him (also to have the experience from another perspective, as professional modelers),

  • after weeks of synthesis and after reviewing hundreds of pages of notes, and

  • after analyzing the data we amassed and reviewing the recordings of our many elicitations of Michel, we created the model — finally, we now have the great joy of presenting Michel’s incredible method to the world — at the exact time that it was meant to be revealed.

It has been several years since the initial manuscript was completed with Michel’s heartfelt and enthusiastic stamp of approval just months before his passing; and we are grateful that he was then still among us to approve and to see firsthand how our modeling process would transfer his expertise and “wisdom of practice” to the world with this book.
