It can come back fairly quickly, but it does take some concentration. However, Paul Noble DOES keep reviewing & adding new phrases in both Spain's dialect & South American Spanish, which means you don't memorize exactly...it is more natural. I did both French & German first parts also, which I had not studied, and did find that they were natural & I was encouraged. Now if I could only make my mouth pronounce as well as I can hear... (Review by Rick)
Puedo hablar español (a little)! I am an aspiring Guidance Counselor, and want to learn spanish to communicate better with parents and students. I learned so much. Listened to it on my 40 minute commute to and from work. Only gripe is sometimes I wished that I could have gotten a spelling of what was being spoken (as I am a visual learner). However, not seeing the spelling beforehand helped with more accurate pronunciation. I will recommend this system. About to buy next lesson now..
Great method. Very practical way to learn.
Um, Paul, I guess.
On to Book 2.
I'm not sure if I have ever given a review before, but I was compelled to say something about the book. I have wanted to learn Spanish for over 30 years. I've tried several courses and methods. Pauls method is nothing short of brilliant. I bought version 1 to test it out. I didn't expect much more than the standard course, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. I honestly can't believe how much I have learned in the first 2 hours of this course. This is something fresh and different. I bought the other 2 and hope he makes more. I hope to be communicating more clearly with my friends in Nicaragua this year...
He's easy to listen to.
I have only had the audio book.
Very easy to follow.
No, there is so much information I needed to listen in one or two hour segments.
I have tried other methods to lean Spanish and have picked up some knowledge but this method seems to be how I learn. It was easier to remember not just memorize.
Best intro to Spanish language. Engaging, intuitive and almost effortless.
I wish more Spanish teaching CDs were available from this author (beyond the 3 currently available on audible).
I loved that this was totally audible. I didn't have to download any books to reference. I had to use my listening skills which allowed me to learn more quickly and to retain what I learned.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn Spanish. It will definitely help you learn without memorizing a lot of grammatical rules.
I gave this program 5 stars, because it lived up to what it said it was and what it would do. It is a truly awesome program!
