Publisher's Summary

Collins Italian 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 study. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.

Part 3 of the course covers:

  • Useful phrases when shopping
  • Vocabulary for conversing with a pharmacist or doctor
  • Practice and revision
  • The future tense

A native-speaking Italian expert helps 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.)

Fabulous!!

I've tried just about every way out there to learn Italian, including studying the language in college and even living in Italy for a few months. I learned a lot of the technicalities but couldn't get to the point I was comfortable putting it all together. This system is by far the best I've ever tried and is finally getting me where I wanted to be. He gives simple, practical direction on verb conjugations and you learn quickly. I'm onto level four now and feel like I'm finally putting the language together after just two weeks listening to this system on my commute to work. I'm more comfortable speaking than ever before, and just so happy I found this. Fabulous language system at a fabulous price!

left me hanging?

I've been through all the books in this course. Sure it gave me a great basis for the language, but a recommendation on additional courses to take would be welcome. I don't want to take another course that starts at the beginning, I would like to pick up where they left off. should give a suggestion for that at the end for those that want to continue.

Good format

Where does Collins Italian with Paul Noble - Learn Italian the Natural Way, Part 3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I found that Collins Italian has many creative and varied ways to approach Italian. I really liked it. It covered parts of conjugation that no other audio recordings did. It's very thorough and intense. It was one of my favorite audios.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Collins Italian with Paul Noble - Learn Italian the Natural Way, Part 3?

Helping me through various aspects of the language I didn't quite understand and making it clear.

Well worth the cost!

A little fast at the end and it certainly will have you reviewing the last chapter more frequently then the others. Well worth the cost. the best language course I found. Do wish I had the books though. Will look for them online.

Very good, but...

I'm a huge fan of the Paul Noble language series. On various trips over the past few years I've used his courses to help learn some valuable French, German, Spanish, and Italian. This series has 'done me a solid' countless times. Paul Noble is a great teacher, and I constantly recommend this audio series to friends and family.

HOWEVER, after completing both the French and Italian courses through all 3 levels, I can definitely say that the French one is so much better. Truth be told, I was a little frustrated by the 3rd part of the Italian series. Paul's priorities seemed a little weird. He spent tons of time teaching us how to say "heat stroke" and yet he spends hardly any time at all on present tense verb conjugations and on using all of the different forms of "you." At the end of the course, it was like he was trying to cram in all of the really important stuff he still hadn't taught. On a trip to Italy, I felt tongue-tied and restricted several times, especially when trying to bumble through the present tense.

My advice--get this series, because it's awesome. However, study present tense verb conjugations on your own.

And if you get heat stroke, you'll be set!

20 stars!

Honestly the most effective and enjoyable way to learn a new langauge. Professor Noble's method should be used in all educational institutions across all academic levels. Truly grateful for discovering this CD collection on audible and the accompanying pdf was priceless and easy to access from desktop (not mobile device). I look forward to taking on Spanish!

Excellent!

He really has a way with the drill! Fun and so effective. Plus, unlike many programs to learn a language, the English speaker truly IS a native English speaker. I am now ready to go dug up my roots in Abruzzo!

Wow - I feel so competent so quickly - loving it!

Where does Collins Italian with Paul Noble - Learn Italian the Natural Way, Part 3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

These Paul noble audiobooks are fab - have picked up so much so quickly and feel I really retain what he has taught, due to the explanation, and leaps in my learning. I also can recognise where I have made a mistake, whereas before, I would not have known!!
