Better than Michelle Thomas or Pimsleur

What did you like most about Learn Spanish with Paul Noble: Complete Course: Spanish Made Easy with Your Personal Language Coach?

The course takes a very modern and engaging approach to language learning which will be familiar to anyone who has used Michelle Thomas or Pimsleur. To be honest it's pretty much a mix of the two methods- but it's better than both. The host has a much nicer manner than Michelle and the flow of conversation is much more seamless than with Pimsleur. For me, one of the most important things about any language course is how enjoyable it is, because that will dictate how often I press play. This one has a nice mix of being engaging, challenging and rewarding- all without being exhausting. It's good- get it!

What other book might you compare Learn Spanish with Paul Noble: Complete Course: Spanish Made Easy with Your Personal Language Coach to, and why?

Michelle Thomas has the same conversational style, but I find his voice annoying and his manner a bit condescending.Pimsleur uses the same spaced repetition to ensure retention of new words, but the structure of the lessons gets a bit predictable and dry pretty rapidly.<br/>This one combines the best parts of the other two, and improves upon them.

Eye (ear?) Opening!

I don't know what it is exactly.... but the way Paul Noble teaches language is different than any other system I had tried. It seems to me that he teaches in the way we learnt to speak as children. It's all very natural and it sticks. I realised very early on that I was instinctively learning spanish and was able to use and build on what I learned very organically. I cannot recommend this audio book/ course highly enough. If you want to learn languages this is the book for you. You will not regret this purchase!

Good but with a lot of room for improvments

Very good for a gentle introdution.

lots and lots of repertition which is worked well for a slow learner for me.

This is however a very basic introduction to spanish and should not be billed as 'spanish complete course'.

i would say this should be a beginers course and i would like to see a paul nobles intermidiate spanish course in the future.

Definatly worth a buy if you know little to no spanish and are looking for somewhere to start.

Best Spanish course

I've been trying to learn Spanish for years with real life classes to online learning... this has been the most effective. Paul knows how to structure the course for ultimate learning. Es fantastico!

Absolutely fantastico!

I've always been pretty useless at learning languages but this has changed all that. Couldn't rate Noble's method high enough.

no booklet

Very very annoying that I don't have booklet to read through as I listen, it does state that a booklet will be saved in your library once downloaded...

Overnight success

I had no prior knowledge of Spanish at all. While on holiday listening the first few chapters I was able to order things and ask if they accepted credit cards and so on literally overnight. English being my second language (and trying to learn Dutch go a while) I know how much effort is required learning a new language. This is the best method for me so far. Garcia Paul Noble, puedo hablar Español ahora.

Not enough revision or explanation of tenses

Went over and over simple scenarios but only one exercise on past tense with no revision.
