One of Udemy's Top Selling Courses of All Time - New & Improved Version 2.5!

Don't accept imitations!

After over 50,000 satisfied students in our original course, Become a SuperLearner® has been updated, upgraded, and improved from the ground up.

This course will teach you how to hack your learning, reading, and memory skills, empowering you to learn anything and everything faster and more effectively.

Whether you're a student, a professional, or simply embarking on a new hobby, you are forced to grapple with an ever-increasing amount of information and knowledge. In fact, it's believed that one week's worth of the New York Times contains more information than people 100 years ago encountered in their entire lives. We've all experienced the frustration of an ever-growing reading list, struggling to learn a new language, or forgetting things you learned in even your favorite subjects.

Anyone can develop SuperLearning skills!

This course is about improving your ability to learn new skills or information quickly and effectively. We go far beyond the kinds of "speed-reading" (or glorified skimming) you may have been exposed to, diving into the actual cognitive and neurological factors that make learning easier and more successful. We also give you advanced memory techniques to grapple with the huge loads of information you'll be able to process.

You'll learn how to input and retain information in a whole new way - a faster, better way

The core of this SuperLearning course involves 3 "Super Skills": 

  • Speed-reading with high (80%+) comprehension and understanding

  • Memory techniques for storing and recalling vast amounts of information quickly and accurately

  • Developing the cognitive infrastructure to support this flood of new information long-term

However, the SuperLearning skills you'll learn in this course are applicable to many aspects of your every day life, from remembering phone numbers to acquiring new skills or even speaking new languages.

How this new course will change your life and triple your learning speed:

The sad irony is that in order to learn most of these superlearning skills and memory techniques in the past, you had to read dozens of books and psychological journals. Or, you had to hire an expensive private tutor who specializes in superlearning. That's what I did. And it changed my life.

Fortunately, my instructors (experts in the fields of superlearning, memory techniques, and speed-reading) agreed to help me transform their materials into the first ever digital course. That course, Become a SuperLearner™ 1.0, took the internet by storm, becoming one of the top courses in the history of Udemy, and resulting in a bestselling book and top-ranking podcast.

How is it different from SuperLearner® 1.0?

Over the last 2 years and 50,000+ students, we’ve had tens of thousands of data points and pieces of feedback, helping us improve both our methodology and our teaching practices. This new course has more (and better) content than ever before, including:

  • Completely re-written lectures emphasizing clarity and engagement!

  • All-new lectures on topics never before covered!

  • Hands-on demonstration videos for every major concept

  • Dramatically improved video and audio quality

  • Interactive worksheets to print and complete

  • Even MORE supplemental resources!

We can confidently say that this is the best, most comprehensive accelerated learning product we’ve ever released on Udemy.

The course will require 2-3 hours of memory and speed-reading practice and training per week, and last roughly 7-9 weeks. It won't be easy - but if you put in the work, you are guaranteed to succeed.

In addition to the lectures, there is an additional 1.5 hours of supplemental video content from TED, YouTube, and other sources which are considered part of the course curriculum.

I really enjoy this course it´s awesome, and I can't wait to develope the great tools for learning in the best way. For my experience I think some of the studies early on in syllabus was hard for me to retrieve, the somewhat technical information. But I did my best, and hopefully when I have finnished this course I can go back to the studies again and put my new speed-reading skill to the test. Greetings from Sweden

Sushil8 October 2020

yes I am excited to take up this course as if I have been waiting this one for so long but wasn't aware of my exact requirement. As soon as I noticed this browsing through various course I immediately registered.

Abdulaziz5 October 2020

This was a fantastic course overall, from the ground up. Mr. Jonathan teaches students who have no exposure to the field of memory training or superlearning to become masters at the art by correctly targeting the foundations before tackling the meat of the topic, which is an essential skill that leaves little room for failure.

Margaret4 October 2020

The course is easy to follow. It contains numerous amounts of valuable information. I highly recommend it to everyone that I know.

Ben3 October 2020

It was a slow start, and felt I was not going to enjoy it as a lot of the beginning links are up sells and hard selling. . However it, when it finally gets to contents its actually incredible. I remembered my bank card number which was nice to see immediate progress. Looking forward to setting up my memory palace.

Malay27 February 2020

Please stop repeating benefits in every chapter. More focus on technique and using it would be appreciated.

Takafumi27 February 2020

記憶術の足がかり、速読のための方法論など技術的な参考になり、応用できればこれから役立つスキルになる可能性はありそう。 ただし、これからの努力の継続次第で。 追記: 英語が未熟な者なので、字幕頼りなのですが、動画の音声とのタイミングや区切りが合っておらず、何回も巻き戻して再生したり、一時停止して読んだりと手間が煩わしかったです。 翻訳も完全な訳でなく、意味が不明な箇所が幾度となくあり、不親切な進行に感じられました。 また、字幕対応が最後の方の講義(#61,#63 [20/02/27時点])で対応がされていませんでした。改善を希望します。

Gilbert27 February 2020

I haven’t learnt much yet, so I am not really sure what to say about the course. But I look forward to new learning skills.

Zohra26 February 2020

The course is designed by 3 qualified professionals, in a practical system. The videos are pleasant, resources are reliable. The program is not a quick fix approach as it addresses core issues of reading and comprehension.

Nykko26 February 2020

Lol. Dam! That was really good. - I really understand that learning how to learn, is about more so about learning how to properly memorize where it's fun & excites you. - & How to use creative learning to make you feel amazing. - I love this course. - Thanks man!

Sanele24 February 2020

I read a lot in my job and some of the techniques and resources are helping a lot. I am saving time and am more productive with more comprehension and speed Thank you for this

William22 February 2020

yes, it seems like a good match. Hoping to take my learning capability to the next level, even though I'm 61 and kind of set in my ways. But anxious to get it to my son as well.

Vicky20 February 2020

I want to expand the ability to retain more information and the thought of being able to do so, is really exiting and I hope to achieve this goal.

Peter20 February 2020

Great flow throughout the whole course in terms of learning, "homework" and applying it in real life.

Joseph19 February 2020

Much like a learning course in college Johnathon has gone over in detail what to expect from both the teacher and the student.
