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.)

    "Naturally Prefer Frobose over Noble"
    Any additional comments?

    The title “Learn Spanish the Natural Way” by Paul Noble is a bit misleading.
    Here are my observations:
    Thick English accent is a bit off-putting and rigid.
    The long introduction put me to sleep.
    Paul’s unenthusiastic low energy voice lulls me to daydreaming.
    Noble’s 3 Ground Rules are too structured and not really natural at all.
    Mark Frobose has a much more natural high energy, motivating approach to language teaching in clear, natural educated American English.
    I’ve done his Behind the Wheel programs in several languages and now with Power Spanish, Real Spanish, and all the conversational Latin American Spanish programs he has created.
    No comparison between these two teachers. Frobose is by far the winner.
    Just listen to Power Spanish 1 sample and then to Paul Noble and you’ll hear what I mean.
    A sample is worth a thousand words.

    Story
    "Great refreshing from high school Spanish 40 years ago."

    It can come back fairly quickly, but it does take some concentration. However, Paul Noble DOES keep reviewing & adding new phrases in both Spain's dialect & South American Spanish, which means you don't memorize exactly...it is more natural. I did both French & German first parts also, which I had not studied, and did find that they were natural & I was encouraged. Now if I could only make my mouth pronounce as well as I can hear... (Review by Rick)

    "Wonderfull!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1 the most enjoyable?

    The best part was the smart way of teaching and repeating the most important things fom previous chapters.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Noble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't.

    "Great so far!"

    This is part one of three I believe and I've learned a lot. They go at a fairly beginners pace and although I make mistakes here and there he addresses it constantly to help make it stick! Get in a comfortable environment to not be embarrassed to practice out loud. Well worth it. I've already bought the next 2 sets!

    "Great learning tool"

    Overall, there is not much information covered in this series, but what is covered, is done well. And it gives you a good foundation of knowledge to begin speaking short, but necessary Spanish while out and about. It also covers two different accents and explains how the language is actually spoken outside of a text book. I highly recommend it.

    "Interesting Smooth Flow"

    Liked the smooth flow of the words as they were translated by two Spanish speakers, male and female. The questions are asked in English and the follow up answers​ come in Spanish after a brief explanation of the meaning of words from one language to another.

    "Highly recommended!"

    It's a good audio guidebook for beginners with no knowledge of Spanish. Paul uses very simple steps and creates an easy to follow train of thought to remember the sentence structures and Spanish words. I'm looking forward to download Part 2!

    "Easy way to pick up Spanish"

    Paul Noble's style of teaching made Spanish learning appropriate to everyday life - it teaches you language that is useful and you hear both a Castillian and South/Central American Spanish dialect.

    "It works for me!"

    My memory is pretty awful and I'm amazed at how much of the Language I'm remembeting. In fact, I did the whole course and went back over it six or Seven months later and could still remember a huge
    amount of it.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

    What did you like most about Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1?

    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!
