Reading more visually is possible with SmartReading because of NLP.

SmartReading is based on NLP, which stands for neuro-linguistic programming. NLP is the study of human behavior. If you understand NLP, it is possible to create the best possible neural pathways in line with your outcome. Neural pathways transmit information inside the brain. So with smartrReading parts of the brain will work better together. We have more than 25 years of experience in NLP and managed to make a training called SmartReading, which teaches you to create neural pathways for the best outcome in reading and studying.

You might be under the impression that by reading faster, you will actually understand less of the content. When you read a few chapters and put the book aside: do you have the feeling that the time you have invested in reading the book does not make up for what you get out of it? Perhaps you just struggle to find the time to read at all? Did it frustrate you that you failed to concentrate enough while reading the book due to all the distractions around you?

Not to worry. This SmartReading training offers you insights, techniques, and exercises that will help you concentrate and read super fast. Super fast by reading paragraphs visually; your ‘internal dialogue’ will not distract you, your concentration level will be higher and you will learn not to jump back and forth in the texts over and over again. Because everything is assimilated visually, it is easier to make connections within the text and to remember what you need by using mind maps. It is like watching a movie. When you see a movie you remember easier because the information is stored visually.

SmartReading has a very positive effect on dyslexia!

Also, dyslexic people experience great benefits by using the Smart method of reading. The new automatization with the new neuro pathways creates a fluent way of reading.

In the traditional way you first see the words in your book then you read this word “out loud in your head” and then you know the meaning. A big struggle for dyslectic people.




When you read with the smart method you see the words and have the meaning of the words and even a sentence immediately. In this way, you won’t even mix up letters or words anymore.



What are the benefits?

Time efficiency

you will acquire new techniques that will greatly improve your reading efficiency, which makes for a huge time-saver and a better way to process different kinds of information.

Improves your memory

SmartReading will help you remember things naturally. During the training, you will learn techniques that increase the use of your (long term and short term) memory by approximately 30%

Study efficiently

Studying becomes fun! With your visual reading center activated you read faster due to the reduction of your internal dialogue. This will increase your concentration and you will remember more.

Goal orientated

Throughout the training, you will notice this approach is far more effective and suits the natural functioning of the brain much better. When you read, you read. When you analyze, that’s all you do and when you memorize things, your mind is fully focused on remembering things. Reading will become much more relaxed and like watching a movie for you.
