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.)

    "Excellente!"

    I have to admit, at first I was a little concerned seeing how there was a pasty white guy on the cover. I mean, who wants to learn Spanish from a pasty white guy? And then when I started listening, he spoke with an English accent! However, this was an excellent, excellent program. I highly recommend it. I cannot wait to get the rest of the series. It is very well paced.and offers excellent amounts of repetition. The explanations and tips really enhance your learning ability. Get this program, you will not be disappointed.

    "great way to refresh after many years"

    other than Taco Bell visits, I haven't used Spanish in 30 years. I love the method, the ties to English, and the fast takeoff. not sure how well it would work for someone with little or no background but it worked well for me. not starting in simple present tense made sense. my only issue was the volume of the recording...would be great if it was a bit louder. I do this driving to work...sometimes it's hard to hear on the highway. esta fantastico!

    "Great learning tool"

    Found the narrators pleasant. The phrases were both useful and unusual for an entry level course. Overall, had great pacing - I hardly ever felt rushed when constructing sentences. Words and phrases built on each other nicely. A fun, practical way to learn!

    "Excellent way to learn basics"

    I like the way this book is laid out. You learn in small increments, but always review what you've already learned throughout the program. This helps you remember what you've learned and utilize it in many different ways. I also appreciate that they have both a Latin American and Spaniard doing the translations so you can hear the differences! I purchased the second audio book, so looking forward to learning more!

    "Easiest way to learn Spanish"

    I loved it I learned how to speak Spanish while walking my dog! I practice at my work and people cannot believe my progress I can't believe my progress! I plan on buying the remainder of the series.

    "Good start for an adult to learn Spanish"

    A very good build up on the way the language was taught in pieces or small chunks and then you could build your sentences however many of the words were more if you're going to visit a location versus converse with somebody at home looking forward to the second edition

    "I found it very easy to comprehend."

    The manner in which the words were used and explained made the lesson much easier to grasp than other language applications/programs.

    "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.

    "It's Great"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn a bit of Spanish.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the two native speakers as well as Paul Noble himself. He cleverly invites a European Spanish speaker AND a South American Spanish speaker and they speak one after the other each phrase so you can tell the difference.


    What about Paul Noble’s performance did you like?

    He speaks extraordinarily clearly and carefully. His voice does not rasp or grate in any way.


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

    You can leave it playing while you do chores, or on headset while you're out and about. You do zone out sometimes but he brings things around full circle and you know you can replay it later so it's fine.


    Any additional comments?

    Before I bought this I read a review that complained that Paul had recycled some material from another course. He has but I haven't remembered EVERYTHING from that course yet AND I do forget it. There is more material on this and I fear I will never learn it all.
