What You'll Get

Learning how to read is like learning how to ride a bike—without proper instruction, it’s all too easy to end up in a bush. Get lost in a book instead with this Groupon: for $129, you get a six-hour Speed Reading 101 class at Speedlearning Institute (a $695 value). Held at Columbia University, classes are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., including five hours of class time and one hour for lunch, on the following days:

  • Sunday, April 15
  • Saturday, April 28
  • Sunday, May 6

Utilized by presidential campaigns, national corporations, and students studying for college-entry exams, Speedlearning Institute’s techniques aim to boost reading speeds and comprehension abilities by up to 300%. During each six-hour Speed Reading 101 session, instructors divulge the institute’s guiding principles, designed to alleviate common reading snafus and the constant fear of being locked in a library overnight. Tutors enlighten students on such subjects as overlining, a speed-enhancing practice that involves directing eyes above words, and subvocalization, the concept of hearing written text mentally, which can impede one’s reading pace. The informative seminar also discloses methods that, like meditating while chanting every name from grandma’s high-school yearbook, can increase concentration and long-term memory skills by up to 95%.

All attendees receive an instructional manual and the institute’s own RasterMaster laser pen, a tool designed to expand peripheral vision and bolster at-home speed-reading practice. Geared toward high-school students to help to prepare them for standardized tests and college-placement exams, this course also assists students in improving scores on graduate-level exams such as the LSAT and the GRE.

About Speedlearning Institute

Faced with mountains of data-filled reports to read and process every day, the staffers of John F. Kennedy's presidential campaign turned to Speedreading to exponentially increase the amount of information they could absorb. Since then, politicians, students, and business people have followed suit, learning how to read up to three times faster, retain nearly twice the information, and have 50% more time to open Milk Duds after reading movie-title crawls. During six-hour sessions, instructors teach pupils how to utilize peripheral vision and unlock the brain's ability to quickly process complete sentences without silently reading each word.
