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...

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..
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!
Paul Noble's teaching method is the most enjoyable, least stressful, and least tedious way of learning to speak Spanish i have ever experienced! I found it helpful to have a Latino Spanish speaker AND a Spanish speaker from Spain offer pronunciations of each phrase and sentence throughout the entire book! The pace and pauses were perfectly timed. His method is engaging and perhaps more importantly, effective! After just 1 book i am farther ahead than after 2 years of studying Spanish in the classroom. Looking forward to continuing with the next 2 books in his Spanish series. Who knows, i may even give his German books a go too! Mucho gracias, Paul!
if you will be traveling to a Spanish speaking country as a tourist or a visitor this is a great way to learn the types of sentences that you will need to know to communicate with hotels, restaurants, etc.
I've been leatning Spanish in my own for about 2 years.. I've watched YouTube videos, bought books, used apps(like Duolingo) and listen to music. This is a great addition to being yourself used to using the language! I'm gonna be taking a semester of into Spanish at a community college this Fall, and this is gonna help me pass it!
