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:
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.)

Puedo hablar español (a little)! I am an aspiring Guidance Counselor, and want to learn spanish to communicate better with parents and students. I learned so much. Listened to it on my 40 minute commute to and from work. Only gripe is sometimes I wished that I could have gotten a spelling of what was being spoken (as I am a visual learner). However, not seeing the spelling beforehand helped with more accurate pronunciation. I will recommend this system. About to buy next lesson now..
This program seems to be a poor imitation of my favorite all time Spanish course, Power Spanish Accelerated by Mark Frobose.
The voices on the Paul Noble program are not nearly as pleasant with Power Spanish and the actual learning that I experienced with Noble was pitiful in comparison to what I learned for the Power Spanish series by Frobose.
Still, for the price, you save a few bucks by buying the Noble program and you’ll still learn some Spanish
I have only had the audio book.
Very easy to follow.
No, there is so much information I needed to listen in one or two hour segments.
I have tried other methods to lean Spanish and have picked up some knowledge but this method seems to be how I learn. It was easier to remember not just memorize.
Best intro to Spanish language. Engaging, intuitive and almost effortless.
I wish more Spanish teaching CDs were available from this author (beyond the 3 currently available on audible).
I loved that this was totally audible. I didn't have to download any books to reference. I had to use my listening skills which allowed me to learn more quickly and to retain what I learned.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn Spanish. It will definitely help you learn without memorizing a lot of grammatical rules.
I gave this program 5 stars, because it lived up to what it said it was and what it would do. It is a truly awesome program!
Paul Noble's teaching method is the most enjoyable, least stressful, and least tedious way of learning to speak Spanish i have ever experienced! I found it helpful to have a Latino Spanish speaker AND a Spanish speaker from Spain offer pronunciations of each phrase and sentence throughout the entire book! The pace and pauses were perfectly timed. His method is engaging and perhaps more importantly, effective! After just 1 book i am farther ahead than after 2 years of studying Spanish in the classroom. Looking forward to continuing with the next 2 books in his Spanish series. Who knows, i may even give his German books a go too! Mucho gracias, Paul!
good place to start but don't count on being able to understand people when they talk to you.
Tried it on a trial and got it done in 3 days not even with effort. Just chuck the ear phones in and you're away. Loved it! First ever audio tape as well. If the speed is an issue, just edit it!
"Been learning Spanish for a few months"
Been learning Spanish for a few months and this was a great audio book, well worth it
this is a slightly different slant on spanish e learning. i loved it, found it very useful and return to it whenever i need a refresher
"Surprising how easy I remember things!"
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!
Just played it in the car each time I drove to work and it's remarkably effective!!!
This is the best language related product I've ever bought. just sit back and relax.
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.
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!
Don't hesitate! Get it! I have loved learning with this method and I recommend it to anyone who has struggled before to learn anything close to a knew language! On to part 2 para me! =D
