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 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.
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.
a good, gentle paced method which covers good tourist basics and more. Less intense than Michel Thomas, but native speakers a big plus
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.
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.
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.
"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"
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
I also used printed material. I like to see the words to help me remember. Like having both male and female vocals.
"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.
"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
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.
"poor of vocabulary, repetition of the first"
I bought the number one. it was good enough to buy the second book with a higher price, I was so shocked, it suppose to add vocabulary ، chapter one and two just repeating what was in book one. we can just hear the book one again and again
Great second book. Its amazing how effective and enjoyable the program is. I actually look forward to listening. I only wish there were more than 3 books. I know I won't be fluent by end of book 3 and I'll want more! I'll have to learn a new language:) For those of you who think it moves too slowly, you can speed up (or slow down) narration in upper right of audible screen. Perfect for me!
"I recommend this book to everyone."
I've taken years of Spanish classes and this is the easiest and most fun way I've ever learned. I love it.
Very helpful and well designed for beginners! Great way to start learning Spanish. I do recommend it!
