    "Good BUT"
    Any additional comments?

    I feel like I have learnt a lot from listening to these audiobooks BUT there are some things which have made it frustrating and detracted from the experience which would be really easily remedied. I am writing this review in the hope that the publisher will take note!

    1. There are occasions when the gap between Paul asking a question and the answer being given is non existent - seriously frustrating when you want to think it through and try to answer for yourself but don't even have time to reach for the pause button before she has blurted out the answer. REALLY ANNOYING!

    2. I really resent the few occasions when Paul asks a trick question so I formulate an incorrect answer as I feel like I am reinforcing bad information by formulating that answer. I would prefer an explanation of the exception and then to be asked a question.

    3. Most importantly, what I would give for a workbook or a transcript, or anything?!!? To me to learn a language you might as well also learn how to read it, write it etc or at least have a vague understanding of what it looks like e.g. the different verb endings, if you have just listened to the recordings you will be virtually unaware of all of the different verb forms. It will only help not hinder you. I gather if you buy the CDs you get a book of some description but no one seems to have thought through selling the book separately so that those of us living in digital 2014 can also participate.

    3. There are a few moments when things are not explained. Someone who is not intimately familiar with either french or with the recordings needs to listen as a lay person and point out the loose ends.

    To any would be french speakers I do recommend this but would suggest you don't give yourself any grand ideas about listening in the car, whilst washing up etc and becoming a fabulous bilingual multitasking have it all kind of human. I tried that but found it totally ineffective. I have made about a thousand times more progress by actually sitting down and giving it 100% of my attention with a notepad, pen and most importantly google (to sort of bodge compensation for the lack of supporting text).

    "Learn French with Paul Noble"

    The logic behind the method of learning is good. Slowly it introduces and familiarises you with new useful phrases and sentences that you can start changing depending on your needs. It works if you are using it as a backup for learning.

    CONS: the tone of the book is far from interesting, it becomes very mechanic. Additionally, there's only one french speaking person throughout the whole CD.
