Sufficient knowledge of foreign languages in our global society is a fundamental condition how to be successful in our professional activity. This applies not only to English (language number one), but also, for example, to Chinese, Spanish, Russian and Arabic.
The idea to utilize the suggestion and hypnotic trance in learning process is not new (Lozanov 1978, Raikov 1988]. The main attention was dedicated to hyper-amnesia, (age regression) and interpersonal communication.
The Psycho-Activated Linguistic Method (P.A.L.M.) goes beyond these previous experiences and offers new techniques. The first step is psycho-diagnosis. Every subject is tested during first three sessions using special psychological tests and hypnotic and P.A.L.M questionnaires.
On the base of the results, seven individual hypnotic sessions are prepared. The main attention is dedicated to motivation, concentration, relaxation, learning methodology and creativity. With post-hypnotic command we try to create a strong desire ("obsession") to dedicate some parts of every day to a foreign language. We activate previous memory traces. With the use of colour triangle we help to think directly in a new language.
Hypnosis cannot give linguistic ability to anyone who is born without it. However, with help of hypnosis we remove many blocks and social prejudices.
The secret of success is working at it with dedication and enthusiasms.
In this way, using hypnosis we can help to everybody to improve linguistic abilities.
During our workshop a special hypnotic linguistic group session will be offer to all participants.

Key words: master foreign languages, hypnosis, motivation, concentration, relaxation, learning methodology, creativity, personal communication, Psycho-Activated Linguistic Method (P.A.L.M.)
