The creator of USL and MMU1 (Dongchan Lee) decided to create a series of English-speaking programs collectively called as SESF (Speak English Super Fast) that will be released as the commercial online products soon. Why suddenly English-speaking EDU instead of focusing on Math and Science?
Lee will continue fighingting to end the math poverty, but it really needs to collaborations at least at the national governmental levels and hopefully the UN and at least the UNESCO’s. As such, this is a very time-consuming process because the vast majority of the global leaders either lack the understanding, the overarching visions, and the concrete drives for the rapid and efficient actions.
In the mean while, Lee needs some financing in big scale so that he can generate as much as possible, as soon as possible so that he can fund the MMU1 and USL himself even if they cost at least billions of the US Dollars instead of waiting and waiting and constantly getting betrayed by the endless number of the cowards in the public services.

Basic summary about SESF:
- What will SESF do?: As all the English-speakers as foreign languages have experienced, it takes many years and money. And yet, many of you understand that how long it takes to start speaking English at least some respectable manner, not just a series of one sentence that we all learned from schools like Good Morning. hi. Bye. Nice to meet you or whatever. Lee expects most of his students speak decent English in front of camera without scripts for about half an hour after the 4 month SESF beta program.
- Any evidences or some indications for that? As you can see in Lee’s website for math EDU revolution in www.uslgoglobal.com, Lee’s results were totally out of this world, statistically at least 200-500 years ahead of its time. For language, Lee speaks currently 5 languages, read 8 languages. He normally can learn to speak a foreign languges to speak in just 3-7 days enough to give at least math or physical science classes daily (not just once), which may be normally considered impossible. Based on his super-rapid learning or teachings experiences for math, science, and languages, he decided to work on the SESF first simply because it is the most demanded.
- Some preliminary evidence for this?
Lee started a pilot experiment of SESF with a small family of 3 people: a mother and her 2 sons (one is in high school and another is in middle school). The could speak only about 10-25 seconds before the pilot experiment with Lee started. The pilot started on August 28th. After the first class alone (about 40 minutes), they could speak about 50 seconds, 1.5 minutes, and 2.5 minutes already. Early September 2017, they will release their speaking in front of camera. Lee expects them to speak about 3-10 minutes of English without scripts after just 1 week study with Lee (of 5 classes). Of course this is an over-performing than the target of SESF beta version that is upcoming. This is just to show that Lee can literally make students speak half an hour without scripts in less than 1 month of study guided by Lee, but the SESF is not going to fly like that. For normal standard for the expected prices of SESF, to learn to speak English for over half an hour in 4 months will be still miraculous by any standard. This can bring a revolution in English learning very quickly across the world.
- All the upcoming results will be uploaded on Youtube.
- Why will most people in Latin America need the SESF desperately in high demand? At least in Guatemala and Mexico (and I believe the situation will be similar in most other Latin American countries), the general consensus seems to be that if you speak English, your salary goes up by 50-100%, and I have heard often that they easily double the salary, with much more opening doors for the new better working opportunities. But the access to the good English-speaking education in just confined for the children of the richest elites of the countries. According to my investigations, in Guatemala less than 1% of population can speak English; in Mexico around 3-10% depending on states or cities; the overall Latin American countries may hover around this population shares of the English speakers.
- Financial motivations: if your salary 2x and if you work for 40 years, that means roughly as a rule of thumb that you will get about 80x more than your currently expecting annual salary, which is huge.
- Individual Return Of Investement (for those who can’t speak English): 1,000-2,000 times larger than the costs of SESF for the university students and about 1,500-3,000 times larger for those who have only up to high school education (at least for the upcoming beta version) in their life time work.
- Prohibitive costs of the typiccal good quality English-speaking programs: in Panajachel (a tourist atttraction city in Guatemala) for instance, the typical English-based bi-lingual schools cost about 10x more than the average private schools. And even there, most students start speaking English in the third year, not the first 1-2 years, and getting better in the third or fourth year. If you have that kind of patience and money, then you can skip SESF. In Mexico, the programs like Harmon Hall with about 120 centers across Mexico have 4 month programs and they may cost totalling about 600-1,000 USD and most students can’t even speak straight any more than few minutes after the program. So what is the point of spending all the money, time, pain, suffering, without breakthrough results?
- Ultimately, the prevalent online free services or Apps are not the solutions: although I know dozens of people who use Duolingo or many other Apps, I haven’t met anyone who can speak decent English for the durations that SESF expects personally. Never yet.
- When will they be available?: the SESF beta product will be up around late-September or October targeting first for the Latin American Spanish-speaking countries, starting with Guatemala and then Mexico.
- How much will these cost? The costs will be varying proportionally to the GDP per capita of a state or cities, etc. For the beta version of autumn 2017, the university students in Guatemala may pay 350-400 Guetzales/month. In the capital city, this may be 600-800 GTQ/month. For the high school students, the beta version is expected to be about 150 GTQ.
- Are there ways to lower the cost? SESF beta will be offered for much discounted costs for the students who bring other students to register or the schools that support and form alliance. The earliest ones will get the best deals. Once the initial operations of September-November 2017 is over, Lee expects the steep price rise in Guatemala and Mexico.
- What will be the first possible operations? Lee intends to run some sort of demo or pilot program of SESF for about 2 weeks with various schools (and perhaps universities) between mid-September to the end of September 2017. If you want to participate, then contact us via our website.
