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 2 of the course covers:

  • Travelling by bus and train
  • Making reservations
  • Asking for directions
  • Past tense

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.)

I bought the number one. it was good enough to buy the second book with a higher price, I was so shocked, it suppose to add vocabulary ، chapter one and two just repeating what was in book one. we can just hear the book one again and again

Not a lot of new material

Good format to learn Spanish but the first 1/3 of the book was review from the first book. He also didn't introduce very many new words or phrases. Not worth the purchase.

A Bit Too Rigid.

Any additional comments?

Nice conversational approach to learning Spanish. Paul talks and the natives chime in. I found this program to be a bit too rigid though for my taste. A similar (and I think superior) program that I have used and learned an enormous amount of Spanish from is from a guy named Frobose. Power Spanish and Conversational Latin American Spanish. All good programs too. Slightly more expensive but well worth the extra money.

Simply the best out there

After trying Rosetta Stone, Busuu, Pimsleur, classes, books, and other approaches to learn a foreign language (for me mainly Spanish), I am finally learning thanks to Paul Noble.

Don't be fooled, this is basic Spanish

I was looking for a really good intermediate level Spanish audiobook, but I bought this and was extremely disappointed. The book has just about as much English as it does Spanish. All of the grammar and vocabulary is extremely basic. I'm glad I didn't start from book 1.

Learn spanish #2 good, 1-3 good,don't buy book #4

Would you consider the audio edition of Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 2 to be better than the print version?

Learn Spanish 1-3 are good and 3-4 hours worth of material, watch out and don't buy book #4 thought it's only 19minutes

Good addition to your learning arsenal

I like this series a lot. It moves at a slow and natural pace, so it's possible to actually absorb the information. The negative reviews I read are missing the point. This is meant to be the second book in a series. If you don't get the first book, then yes, this one will seem like a waste of money (or credits? BTW... the price is so cheap. Why on earth would you use a credit? Just spend the few dollars and use your credit on a more expensive book. SMH.)

I listen to this book when I go on walks. I also use other learning tools like Duolingo and the Living Language series. I find this to be valuable enough that I'm about to purchase book 3. The pace is slow and logical and I have built up my vocabulary faster than I thought I would. It's a good series to use, but do not depend on it for your only learning resource. I also recommend you check out the Fluent in 3 Months website. He has some incredible tips on learning a new language.

Simple

very good repetition when speaking Spanish. through the repetition you learn a very basic understanding and pronunciation. great book to begin learning another language.

I can't believe how much Spanish I have learnt in such a short time! I was a complete beginner - no longer!

by far the best way to learn a language

Previously I have learnt French and German the traditional way by memorising word lists and different forms of verbs.
This is a much more relaxed way. I particularly like the way the Latin parts of the English language are converted to Spanish,, as you immediately have a long list of English words easily converted to Spanish.

Disappointing and repetitive 😒

I am very disappointed with this audiobook.

I very much enjoyed the first one in the Spanish series - the easy style disguised the clever structure and logical sequence. I really felt that I made progress both quickly and relatively easily. I had, therefore, high hopes for this volume and was looking forward to moving on again. Sadly, I don’t feel that I have.

I am a language teacher myself, so am well aware of the value of repetition to embed learning. However, repetition should be the basis of further development (zone of proximal development, to use the technical term) and not just an activity for the sake of it.

If you have completed the first volume in the series and feel you would benefit from some review and revision, then this will definitely be of help. If, however, you are looking for the next step in your development, give this one a miss and move on to the next.

Great - but listen to the set of 3 in order

Would you consider the audio edition of Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 2 to be better than the print version?

Yes. The audio encourages you to speak. The book, which is a free pdf, is great for reference.

Any additional comments?

I am learning more with this set of 3 audios than I have at a year of classes.

Legendary!! Must buy!!

i have used many programs to enhance my spanish and none are as successful as Paul Noble Spanish. This coupled with Fluenz and duolingo is the trio which got me to an intermediate level. But start here because this lays the foundation then move on.

An excellent way to learn Spanish

Paul Noble was recommended to me and so far I have listened to the first two in the series. I generally prefer them to the Michel Thomas ones that I still dip into, which are of a similar method of learning. However I especially like the fact that in the Paul Noble series you are listening to two native Spaniards (one speaking Latin American Spanish and the other European Spainish). Paul Noble has a very friendly manner whereas Michel Thomas can be a bit cranky at times and I sometimes got irritated with his students who were learning alongside you. I am keen to get started on the third one. I live part of the year in Tenerife and these tapes have helped enormously to build my confidence in speaking the language.

good beginner's method

a good, gentle paced method which covers good tourist basics and more. Less intense than Michel Thomas, but native speakers a big plus

Very Good ALONGSIDE studying

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.

great way to learn Spanish

Builds on vocab while gradually introducing new vocab. I like the repetition as it assists in better retention, for me.

Good but too slow going

Everything is very well explained but it really didn't cover much ground before it was over.

Too much repetition

Part one was good, but I felt like this was far too slow and repetitive. There was not enough new content and far too much rehashing of part one, which you could get by replaying that yourself if needed. Although Paul's explanations of the rules are good, constantly having to repeat simple two and three word phrases like "es romantico" and "soy de londres" got intensely annoying.

Clear and easy to understand but wanted more

A lot was a reinforcement of the first book which does help to embed what has been learnt bit sometimes a little tedious. I would have like to have seen more vocab variety
