Collins French with Paul Noble combines an exciting new non-traditional approach to language learning with the easy, relaxed appeal of an audio-only product. No books. No rote memorisation. No chance of failure.
Paul Noble is a genius with a higher IQ than Einstein. Despite this, he still struggled with language learning at school. He found himself feeling ‘confused, incapable and unable to really say anything’. As a result of his negative early experiences, Paul has come up with a ground-breaking new method of language teaching that removes the need for months of study. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.
Part 1 of the course covers:
A native-speaking French expert helps Paul to deliver the course and to perfect your pronunciation. No complicated grammatical explanations, no rote memorisation, no writing - no stress.< /p>

Paul's approach to French is very friendly. he explains concepts in a way that is very easy to understand and remember. This is perfect for an English speaker who wants to learn French and remember it later.
Very simple and practical way to learn French from an English base. Builds phrases and sentences in a logical method which is easy to follow and recall.
Paul Noble gets you speaking the language right away. Not boring or repetitive like most other audio language lessons I've tried.
I found this recording very helpful as I am an intermediate French speaker and it was a great review of some of the more basic verbs like pouvoir, avoir and vouloir. It would also be helpful for beginners who want to grasp some of the basics before travelling.
This was a great series, I had no experience in French before and this allowed me to have basic conversations. A few things to note:
- The series is 4 audio books. They really are not broken up well in Audible. So, you can try the first one, but plan on getting all 4 to cover all of the material. All of the books relate to each other, so unless you complete them all you will not get much out of the course.
- This is a great series for speaking. The books alone will do almost nothing for reading and spelling. In fact, the first time I saw some of the words in print, I had no idea what they were.
- On Paul Collins' website, you may download the "booklet" discussed in the book. This helps mitigate the 2nd point, but still it is mainly for speaking, not writing/reading.
I could not speak a word of French but after 3 hours I have learnt so much
This is a great way to learn or refresh French. The use of a native speaker is great for proper pronunciation.
"Easy listening and learning"
I have finished the first audible book today and have quite enjoyed it. I do need to go over it again but I it's sinking in.
"Brilliant! French made easy!"
Really enjoyed this first course, rules are easy to follow. Had me speaking in French very quickly. Looking forward to part 2.
"Great introduction to French -"
I recommend this audio because Paul Noble has such a compelling style. He teaches the easy stuff and quickly moves to (useful) complex phrases. I wish he had been my teacher at school. I learnt more in the 6 hours (Vol 1-4) than I did in 6 years. I feel more confident and now understand how the French put present, past and future tenses together. Magnifique!
Great presenter - moves at a manageable pace and covers a lot of ground
The penny has dropped with this one, after trying a few courses,this makes so much sense and I am making progress.
"I see me in Paris, on Champs-Elysee....yeee"
This method makes so much sense to me and I find that Paul's unhurried speech actually plays a key role in the entire experience. After one hour's lesson, I am able to remember with such clarity.
In the past, I have tried the Pilmseur approach but gave up after the first lesson.
"best French learning course~"
highly ranked among all the audiobooks I’ve listened to so far.
best for beginners.
