With the World's Most Advanced Speed Reading Program

Shilin Speed Reading Institute is a personal development and education focused company. We help our clients achieve greater success in their lives through the development and delivery of advanced mental development courses designed to unlock their potential and to develop the minds allowing them to think, read and work faster and more efficiently.

Our signature program, the Shilin Speed Reading Program is an advanced practical in-class speed reading training program that is literally developing some of the world's fastest readers.

Originally developed by Dmitriy Shilin in the mid 1980s in the Ukraine, Dmitriy trained thousands of students to exponentially increase their reading speed. When moving to South Africa after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the course lay dormant for 17 years while Dmitriy focused on other business initiatives. Now nearly 2 decades later the course is being reintroduced to the world at a time when it is most needed.

About the Shilin Speed Reading Program

Training the World's Fastest Readers

What makes the Shilin Speed Reading Program the most advanced reading development course and even one of the most advanced educational programs in the world? In the last twelve months alone we have trained some of the fastest readers in the world. Ten of our students were able to achieve reading speeds greater than ten thousand words per minute.

Our students achieve these reading speeds by training the brain to read multiple words, sentences, paragraphs and sometimes entire pages in the same time the average person takes to read a few words.

All the footage below is of the final reading comprehension tests at the end of the course.

The comprehension levels of these students is over 80-100% with the ability to retain and recall the information.
