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:
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.)

Loved it - gave me the confidence to try things, practice and make progress! Discovered great hints and tips for making rapid progress with the language!
I like the way Paul builds up from basics with repetition. It is sometimes a bit frustrating when you've "got it" but stick with it as you get to learn a lot in a short time. I like using it over to revise.
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.
If you've worked though episode 1 from scratch the pace is good for new learners and episode 2 does revise and build on topics and vocabulary to back up his 'not remembering' method of natural learning.
BUT... eventually the repetition gets so monotonous. I never want to hear 'ado like bravado' or 'ido like libido' again. Worse though is the amount of English used. What seems forever explaining what a noun and pronoun is, in English! It could easily have been 10 minutes or more of dead time, and so often the explanations in English are just too verbose. I almost lost the will to live during the second half.
A poor and frustrating sequel to a good start. Hoping for better from episode 3.
Really enjoyed it
Gave me the confidence to start speaking and helping me to overcome word finding difficulties
Lots of fun prompts to help me remember
Will be getting more in the Spanish series
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.
"I never understood Spanish until I heard Collin"
Amazing relation of the Spanish words to English. Easy learning . Beats all the fancy expensive Rosetta stone
"Learn spanish #2 good, 1-3 good,don't buy book #4"
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
"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.
Well presented but too slow prefer less repetition off the simple words and more challenges
"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.
"Good way to learn Spanish!"
This is a little different than trying to memorize vocabulary. He does a great way of teaching you how to put sentences together and put your thoughts into words without over thinking it. I just finished part 2 and am about to start part 3. I recommend this series.
"absolutely great program"
I used learning spanish like crazy added michel thomas then Frobose program now these. This is a great follow up to Michel Thomas because of the native speakers.great lecturer for the self-instructed. Buena suerte mis amigos.
"better teaching style"
I enjoy the way he explains the meanings and allows just enough time for me to internally process the word to practice it out load before the native speakers chime in. He subtlety uses repetition to ingrain these words in your brain. I am going to buy #3.
The learning experience was excellent. I have listened to the audio primarily in my car. I think the pace and repetition are very good for a consistent and relaxing learning experience. I will complete all the spanish audio tapes
