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.)

    "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"

    I am finishings the last book now and I wish there were more because I really feel like the rhythm and pace worked well with my commuting learning. But I am happy with what practice I have gotten from these books.

    "Excellent but short"

    This system definitely works for me and feels like the best way to learning Spanish. I only wish it contained more, was longer, as one credit for one cd/book of 4 hours is not much. But alright, definitely worth it! :)

    "Finally, someone has figured it out."
    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?

    I haven't read the print version, but by its nature, the audio version is necessary. I believe any print media is part of the CD set if it were to be purchased separately. I'm a visual learner but the way this course is laid out, there is no disadvantage that there aren't visual materials. I'm seriously impressed. I've taken a couple of years of Spanish in college, gone to in-country schools for one and two weeks, tried different programs on CD, etc, and have now just discovered this after having been in Chile for 7 weeks. I'm learning and understanding things that have eluded me, and this is only the first day. This is simple, logical, and effective. It's a good program.

    "Best beginning for Spanish learners"
    Would you listen to Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1 again? Why?

    Beside this book, I have listened to the "Spanish for the busy traveler) and I'm listening now to the "Coffee break Spanish" which is a radio podcast dedicated to learning many languages, Spanish included. I found that Noble's approach is both effective as well as easy to grasp. a strong point in this audio is that it teaches you both Spain Spanish and Latin Spanish without compromising your time or understanding of the main concepts of the language. by the time i finished the course (4 parts), I developed the ability to have various communications in Spanish as well as hundreds of vocabulary words. You wont be fluent merely by listening to this audio, but it will give a great start do be.

    "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.
