Superlearning

Superlearning is the usual term for a system developed by Bulgarian scientist Georgi Lozanov to help people learn large amounts of information quickly and easily. It is also the title of a book on the subject, copyright date 1979, by Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder with Nancy Ostrander.

The system involves playing very specific, relaxing baroque music with a tempo of 60 beats per minute as bits of information are read to the student with 4 or 12, but usually 8, beats between each piece of information. The tone of voice is alternated for each bit of information to break monotony, which hinders the learning process.
