What is Suggestology?
Suggestology was founded by Dr Georgi Lozanov as the science of suggestion. Suggestion is a universal phenomenon playing a major role in every communicative instance of everyday life. In Dr. Lozanov’s words, “we are constantly surrounded by suggestive influences. If we study them and become aware of them, then we are in a better position to choose which ones we want to be influenced by”.
