Publisher's Summary

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:

  • Language ground rules
  • The use of the past tense
  • Finding French words used in English
  • Asking questions
  • Essential vocabulary to use when booking into a hotel, taking a taxi, and eating out.

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>

Learn over 6,000 words in no time at all and - most importantly - learn how to make your new vocabulary work for you. (Use the accompanying booklet as a reference and revision tool.)

    "Unbelievable"

    I am speechless (rather the opposite). Three hours in and I'm a believer! This works unlike anything I ever imagined.

    "very well done, Paul"

    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.

    "Effective"

    Paul Noble gets you speaking the language right away. Not boring or repetitive like most other audio language lessons I've tried.

    "Very helpful and easy to use"

    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.

    "Great Series - some expectations to set"
    Would you listen to Collins French with Paul Noble - Learn French the Natural Way, Part 1 again? Why?

    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.

    "Great introduction to French -"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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!


    What about Paul Noble’s performance did you like?

    Great presenter - moves at a manageable pace and covers a lot of ground


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Magnifique

    "I see me in Paris, on Champs-Elysee....yeee"
    Where does Collins French with Paul Noble - Learn French the Natural Way, Part 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Collins French with Paul Noble - Learn French the Natural Way, Part 1 to, and why?

    In the past, I have tried the Pilmseur approach but gave up after the first lesson.
