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>
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.)

I am trained in teaching other languages, and this course follows a lot of the best practices I studied in school. The only irritation is that the teacher refers to some kind of companion guide and additional recording "at the end" that is not included. Not sure where to find that.
I've listened to a couple of French audiobooks, but luckily started off with this series. It's the best from all the ones I've listened to. Paul explains the concepts extremely well and gives ample time to respond. He says in the beginning that you shouldn't focus on memorising, it will come naturally through repetition, and that's exactly what happened.
DIY Language packs are usually a great idea. French, however, is problematic. There are 2 main vocabularies for French, Canadian and UK. Book is not identified as either, and my French Wife looks at me stupid when I try this guys works. I'm sure it's just a dialect issue, but would it kill the market to help someone learn Canadian French?!
Please specify nationality for international languages. Dialect is of huge importance when learning a language. Now I gotta scrub everything I learned because it does not match my Nations use of the language
I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to learn from scratch or refresh their French. While the initial instructions provided by Paul Noble seemed long and "a given" to me I find that the more I follow his advice the more I learn, grasp the concepts, and remember what and how to say it. I am in awe of his method. Thank you!
One of the most memorable moments for me was the first time actually did what Paul Noble said: not worry by trying to memorize words, phrases, verb conjugations, etc. The fact is that he is constantly creating scenarios and encouraging the listener to remember. This repetitive act of remembering facilitates learning and retrieving the right word in the right order just like I do in my native language.
His approach, his voice, his method. It all seems simple.
I am quite surprised that I feel confident with everything I learned Learn French the Natural Way, Part 1. I started Learn French the Natural Way, Part 2 and am experiencing the same positive impact.
I cannot wait to start Learn French the Natural Way, Part 3. I recommend this book to anyone who wants or needs to learn French.
Fun, interesting, varied
The dining and reserving moments.
When he was the hotel clerk.
I hope there are more after the 3rd one.
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~"
