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.)

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.

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

Excellent program for pronunciation and grammar.

One Latin Ameican speaker and one Castillian Spanish speaker. Beautiful pron unciation easy to imitate. Enough time given for learner to speak answer. Slightly sleepy given silence time for answering, Narrarator very pleasent and comprehensive in presenting beginner Spanish . One of the best programs available.

The best language learning program I have found

If your learning style fits his teaching style, you will love it as I did. Listen to the preview it may help you make that determination.

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.

Just the essentials

Professional, pleasant, and mellow voices of the narrator and two native speakers (the phrase "Keep calm and 'study' on" comes to mind). No unnecessary background music or cheerleader-style praise to throw off your focus. Simply a very helpful building blocks approach that reinforces any beginning level Spanish one may have learned elsewhere.

Great!

Great teaching. Fastest learning method I've seen. Useful immediately. I've got all the audiobooks in the series and can't wait to get to the next one.

Brilliant and thankfully addictive

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.

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.

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
