Publisher's Summary

Collins Spanish 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 studying. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.

Part 1 of the course covers:

  • Language ground rules
  • The use of the past tense
  • Asking questions
  • Essential vocabulary to use when booking into a hotel, taking a taxi, and eating out

Two native-speaking Spanish experts help Paul to deliver the course and to perfect your pronunciation. No complicated grammatical explanations, no rote memorisation, no writing - no stress. 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.)

    "Just what I needed!"
    Would you listen to Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1 again? Why?

    I am learning a lot about the way Spanish is structured and how to really catch on to the fluidity of speaking Spanish. The teacher really makes the lessons enjoyable, easy to follow and really absorb the learning material.

    "I can't believe this works"

    Like most people I've tried various methods of learning Spanish but this method of just listening has been the most effective. It forces to listen which in turn causes your brain to absorb more.

    The mock conversations are good but wish there were more of them.

    Overall this has been worth the time and money.

    "I learned quite a bit from Paul Noble"

    I am a beginner in Spanish, but Paul has done very well in teaching Spanish 1 via this audiobook. I am finishing up today and feel confident with 90% of the book's phrases and vocabulary. I may have to listen to the last chapter again, to deliberately answer perfectly every question, but Paul actually discourages perfection during the books introduction. He states it is his job to make us remember, and actually does quite well in doing so. All in all I took away a lot of Spanish from this book and definitely recommend using it with other resources.

    I am going to try the next book from Paul, Spanish 2 and hope for the same results (or better)!

    "Great review for someone hasn't spoken in more than 5 years."

    Great for long car rides! Doesn't get caught up in the nitty gritty of Spanish, but explains what is necessary and builds as you progress. All while retaining what you've learned!

    Uses standard scenarios for traveling in a foreign country, so it's practical as well.

    "More Please, Paul."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1 to be better than the print version?

    Yes, very much so, but the printed pdf helps tremendously afterwards to recap.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Paul himself is great and is very much a part of the story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favorites, they are all quite good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The narrative is warm, friendly, paced just right and is a joy to listen to. I only wish Paul would carry the series further and do more such books, perhaps to do with general conversation instead of travel/tourism related. Also, it would be tremendously helpful in a future version to have this in the form of an app that runs on your phone/computer like a teleprompter that would spell the words out as they are spoken, making an audible as well as visual connection.

    "Great way to learn"

    This series really helps you to learn a new language without doing the typical method of memorizing vocabulary and grammar. It helps you to be able to figure out words and form correct sentences. I highly recommend it!

    "Excellent audio course"
    Any additional comments?

    Good introductory audio course, I love how this guy teaches: repetition, but not to much, you learn something new every other minute to keep you engaged, you learn to speak from words you know immediately and not sometime after, conjugations are introduced slowly and not all at once, plus Paul gives some tips and tricks related to word building from English words which is immensely useful, plus it's cheap. Wait no longer, go learn some Spanish!

    "Surprising how easy I remember things!"
    What did you like most about Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1?

    This is my first time learning Spanish and this book really made it easy, just listening in my car on the way to work. I have only listened to Part 1 so far but I have remembered pretty much everything and feel I have enough Spanish to get by on a basic level. On to Part 2!

    The CD version comes with a booklet so I'm a bit disappointed that audio download does not have a link to download and print that booklet. Other then that I like it.

    "Exceptional!"

    For context, I've studied Spanish via computer, books, apps, private tutorial, immersion classes and become so utterly dejected (and at times, so acutely frustrated that I've felt a degree of anger) at my inability to pick up the language. It's been a horrid challenge - until now! For her first time, I feel like I am both learning and **retaining** some Spanish. Absolutely thrilled and couldn't recommend Audio Book 1 more highly!

    "Easy to follow and enjoyable"

    I have trialled a number of learn Spanish audio and written books and I have found this by far the best.
    It's easy to follow, repetitive (a good thing) and the phrases and language learnt will be useful in everyday speech when I go to Spain.
    Don't forget that it also comes with an accompanying pdf which you can get from the audible site, though it's not terribly obvious to find and I had to ask the first-rate audible helpline who assisted me admirably

    "Great programme for learning Spanish naturally."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1 to be better than the print version?

    Yes of course, you need to hear the pronunciations and reading languages can be very boring and therefore easy to disengage.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1?

    The whole thing is brilliant. I already speak basic Spanish so not only did I learn new things but I was able to appreciate his teaching technique as being very clever and an intuitive way to teach and learn a new language.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Noble’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes, they are all of a similar excellent quality!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listen to it while I work and find that I absorb the information naturally after than forcing it.


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend this course and any others by Paul Noble. He is a clever man and obviously knows how to teach Spanish to those who always felt they were terrible at languages! What a breakthrough.
