Pure, Natural Coca Leaf – A Healing Gift Of The Divine Plant

Do You Know someone Who Needs Help With English?

Leave a comment

For about a year I’ve been working with a French company teaching spoken English to professionals from around the world. My students are people who are already successful in their careers, and who read and understand English just fine, but who still struggle to communicate effectively in spoken English.

I have developed a rather effective approach to teaching spoken English that helps my students progress rapidly toward their goal of being able to speak spontaneously using good grammar and syntax and a solid vocabulary – especially using words and terms from their field and pronouncing them correctly.

My “trade secret” is that I am a member of several dozen forums worldwide that are dedicated to the exchange of knowledge among people in specific professions. I use these internet resources to extract relevant ideas, topics, questions and answers, and problems to be solved for discussion with my students. In this way, each of my students is able to practice spontaneous spoken English while focusing on ideas from their own field of interest. I use both Skype and Hangout for giving lessons by webcam.

One great example of an internet resource that I find very useful, in case you’re curious, is www.quora.com which is a very large site for people interested in any area of Computer Sciences. I have had several students in Computer Science whose native languages ranged from Chinese and Russian to Portuguese and Hindi. Using resources from Quora.com gives my students an opportunity to challenge themselves and express their ideas using English-language vocabulary and syntax from their own field of interest.

I also do a lot of work with my students helping them to improve their English-language writing skills, and have worked as an editor on their user manuals, presentations, reports, proposals, dissertations, and technical papers.

I am posting this here because it occurs to me that there may be those among my LinkedIn, FaceBook and Twitter networks who know a friend, colleague or business associate who could benefit from improving their spoken and written English skills. If you know someone in this situation, please refer them to my tutoring website that is located here.

Thank you!

I love creating, testing, and launching new ideas that work and that make a positive contribution to other peoples' lives. I love breaking trails and discovering hidden or new pathways, new ways of looking at special parts of the world, and most of all I love sharing what I find with others. I wrote the first Cannabis grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Marijuana” in 1969. Cultivators has sold over 6 million copies worldwide & is still in print in 2016. I'm very happy to have been a part of the beginning of what is now a true revolution. I created The Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company in the early 1980's and invented the American Spirit™ brand. My hope is that many people who chose the organic tobacco alternative have enjoyed smoking a more natural product and been healthier because of it. I wrote the first Cannabis extraction/medical edibles book “Marijuana Foods” in the early 1980's. While Cannabis extracts for medicinal use go back thousands of years, many people in my generation had not even heard of Cannabis butter. I was happy to share what I discovered through research and experimentation. I wrote the first organic Tobacco grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Natural Tobacco”. I know that in some parts of the country, growers are selling organic tobacco at farmers markets, and I still have hope that a networked collaborative industry can be organized as an alternative to the so-called "Tobacco Industry". I helped thousands of people to be better cross-cultural business communicators with the “International Straight Talk” video/CBT series in the 1990's. If you have the patience for some very old-style talking heads videos they are all digitized and online. A lot of culturally-astute people appear in these videos sharing valuable information. I re-introduced Coca Leaf to the natural medicines dialogue with “Panacea Chronicles” and “The Coca Leaf Papers” in 2010 – 2012. This is a digitized collection of core books on Coca from the 18th and 19th centuries, with a hyperlinked bibliography. I created this resource so that people could connect with Coca's relevance to core health issues in today's world through understanding its historical context. I just finished (2016) developing a market-disrupting line of Cannabis products for “Landrace Brands™”. I figured there was no reason a company run by people I care about to be just another me-too Cannabis industry startup, so we came up with a few surprises. I enjoyed this process and would like to do the same for other Cannabis market companies run by good people. I am currently researching and writing "Cannabis For Seniors: A Caregivers Handbook" to be published in 2017. I welcome your ideas for topics, and stories about how Cannabis has made a difference in your own life or in the life of someone you love. I am always looking for interesting new challenges. Is there anything that we should be discussing?
