    "Excellent!"

    Really easy to understand and learn. Paul Noble teaches French in a way that you just pick it up as you go through the course.

    "The best way to learn French"

    They tried to teach me in school and I've been visiting France for years, but I've only ever managed to retain the most basic French. This has taught me so much in such a short time and has given me the confidence to think that someday I might even be fluent!

    "I was so surprised at how well I picked this up!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I wasn't convinced about audiobooks to learn languages, but this proved me wrong within the first 30 minutes. Brilliant!


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

    Other language courses, although I haven't tried any yet. This will give you the confidence to try something a bit more advanced, as it gives you a great grounding in the basic of French speaking.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Noble’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Not yet. Going to do Italian next!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I wouldn't bother... That would be just weird.


    Any additional comments?

    Try it, honestly, it works.

    "Great for the commute"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It's easy to follow, perfectly paced


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

    N/A


    Have you listened to any of Paul Noble’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - not really applicable for language learning - also I bought for my commute, so a single sitting would have meant a truly horrible traffic jam!

    "Brilliant Grammar Drill"

    This very thorough and intensive course really put me through my paces, which is what I wanted. The course works through a non-stop series of drills, which are led and explained very slowly and clearly by Paul Noble, at a pace which is relaxed, yet persistent. Although there is very little use of grammatical terms, I feel that the course is very grammar-focussed, a big positive for me. The course nevertheless also covers a range of communicative situations.

    "Excellently designed and presented course"
    Where does Learn French with Paul Noble: Complete Course: French Made Easy with Your Personal Language Coach rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a much better designed and presented course than the Michel Thomas version. Paul Noble uses a French speaker, so you hear the correct French pronunciation of words rather than non French people trying to speak the language. Paul Noble's explanations are also clearer and more memorable.


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

    The Michel Thomas's course uses the same approach


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Paul Noble's explanation of how to conjugate and pronounce the future verb tense


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is far too long and needs to be listened to in bite sized chunks.


    Any additional comments?

    Clearest and best explained French course we have heard. Also great to listen to just before re visiting France.

    "Great way to learn French but no irregular future"

    I wasn't a complete beginner but I still found this audio recording very useful. I liked the mix of English explanation and French examples. I love rules and the author was good at explaining the theory behind each of the French grammatical constructs.
    He explores the shared linguistic history of English and French, which is not only interesting, but is a useful tool to help remember the French. E.g.He explains that for the past tense for some verbs (generally seen as action verbs) the French use Je suis (e.g. je suis arrivé, I am arrived) rather than J'ai (j'ai arrivé, I have arrived). He explains that this is something that English used to do and gives some examples. (e.g. in Shakespeare) I was able to think of an example myself "Unto us a child is born" (not "has been" born) which has not cemented that fact in my brain.
    Just got to near to the end and am a little disappointed. He tackles the future (I will, he will etc) and starts with the regular which is understandable because they are easier.
    But then instead of doing the irregular, it is just numbers, letters and revision. Unfortunately, it is the irregular future verbs, I will be, I will go, I will do and I will have ...etc that I think are the most useful. I really wanted to practise those. There is also no past imperfect but can forgive that.
    I don't think it is therefore "complete"
