Collins Spanish with Paul Noble combines an exciting new, nontraditional 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 groundbreaking new method of language teaching that removes the need for months of studying. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.
Part 3 of the course covers:
Two native-speaking Spanish experts help Paul to deliver the course and to perfect your pronunciation in both Latin American and Iberian Spanish. 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.)

Continues the line of Learn Spanish books with fun and easy ways to learn to speak it.
Yes, I have listened to books 1 and 2. This book continues the tradition and helps to learn spanish!
Buyer beware! If you are looking for an advanced audio book for learning Spanish, this is NOT the book for you. I bought Collins Learn Spanish number 2 and number 3, thinking that they would have more advanced lessons than the first audio book. Unfortunately, I was very wrong. I wasted 2 credits on these books. "How would you say... a waste of money?" This audio book is about 20 percent "How would you say...." 70 percent a waste of time on repetition, and 10 percent useful. After 3 hours of audio, this book is still trying to teach you the personal pronouns tú, usted, ustedes, ellos, ellas, él, and ella. The entire final chapter is counting. That's an entire hour of counting - half in English! Really? I'd like 90 percent of my money back.
I appreciated the pace at which Paul worked, and the way he cleverly linked much of what I know already in English to what I did not know in Spanish. This increased not only my vocabulary but my confidence. I am traveling in Mexico now, and I'm amazed at how much I'm remembering. So much fun! Thank you Paul!
This is a good course for someone planning a vacation in a Spanish speaking country. After completing the course I'm able to speak short phrases that will allow me to order food at a cafe , purchase goods, communicate with a doctor, and ask for basic directions and locations. I'm not remotely fluent in Spanish and I'm not able to follow conversations among spanish speaking people. If your goal is to become fluent in Spanish I recommend a more comprehensive course.
Went through conjugation too quickly. But best format I've found, with adequate repetition. I wish the would do a 3-B. Also use words related to work or production rather than travel.
I just wish they had a program to get me all the way to fluency... But now I feel like I have a strong start to finally learning Spanish, and I feel like I have so much momentum that I can't help but follow through.
Easy to listen. Great supplement to other learning materials. I tend to be a visual learner so it has been easier for me to learn to read Spanish than to speak it. This was a helpful tool to learn spoken language.
never have i encountered a teacher who owns the responsibility of teaching like Paul. the way the course evolves without the strict need for memorization is amazing. Paul became a staple during my work commute in learning spanish. thank you!!! soy Tim Wiley de Dallas, Tx
I've purchased all of them. I love them as a resource for review and speech development. Paul Noble informs us on the relationship between Spanish and other languages. The lessons are both a great review if you, like me, already speak some Spanish and for leaning proper grammar, new vocabulary words and conjugation.
Iv been learning spanish for over a year now and i can honestly say this is the best learning aid i have found. Unlike other learning aids Paul Noble teaches you the core of the language. Which is why the language has finally 'clicked' in my mind. Now any extra vocab i pick up i will know exactly how and where to use it in a sentence.
In sort get this if you want to learn....you wont be disappointed
Iv used rossetta stone which i found useless but I would recommend duolingo (android app).
"Very good ALONGSIDE studying Spanish"
I have audiobooks 1 to 4 by this author. I believe that these and any other Spanish audiobooks are only good in conjunction with continued study of the language. You will not learn another language solely by listening to this or any other audiobook
I have tried a number of e learning modules and this is by far the best series. I will be recommending it.
It is a great way to learn a language and helping especially my pronounciation
I think Paul's courses are the best to learn quickly to speak a new language
"What a great way to learn Spanish!"
I have enjoyed all 3 Learn Spanish books equally, and although I'm aware there is a 4th, I would like to see further books for learning more advanced Spanish language. From what I understand, the 4th book is a review of the first three books, but I am hungry for more challenges and to delve deeper into the grammar and vocabulary! Paul Noble- if you read this - make some more please! 3 (or 4) aren't enough!! :-)
"Very little vocabulary per session - very tedious,"
I know repetition aids learning in language acquisition but you can go too far!
All the words introduced were very similar to the English words anyway and we're repeated far too many times. The gaps for you to take in the " new information" were so long that I thought there was a fault with my phone.
Easy money Mr Noble - you didn't have to think a lot!
