    "Very impressive!"

    It will surprise you how much you have picked up by the end as long as you are listening regularly. Nice, straight forward format of book that definitely works to get you started in a new language. I definitely recommend if you are serious about learning a language.

    "Amazing way to learn the basics of Italian."

    I really enjoyed this audio book to Learn Italian. Paul Noble teaches you in a way that over the course of the book everything seems to stick. this is coming from someone who has an awfull memory. I would highly recommend this to any beginners who find learning a language difficult through normal text books.

    "Excellent resource"

    I can recommend this course: it is well planned and it uses the latest techniques for effective language learning. I've tried others over the last ten years but non are as good as this one. It is easy to follow and to complete: once finished you will be in a very strong position to continue with your study of italian. it lays a good foundation based on the modal verbs and also introduces you easily to both past and future tenses. Language learning has never been easier! Highly recommended: I wish I'd found this course ten years ago.

    "Terrific"
    Any additional comments?

    I find this method of teaching languages very helpful for anyone wishing to gain a basic vocabulary and confidence to make a trip abroad. I have downloaded both the french and Italian, and although I had a very rudimentary knowledge of both languages, these recordings gave me immense confidence to talk and ask and demand etc. when travelling abroad. It also clarified and SIMPLIFIED the use of verbs and tenses.It is a very simple and repetitive method, but is not boring and keeps you on your toes. I have over years tried many other well known teaching methods, but this one for me is the only only one that actually "sunk in". Still, horses for courses as they say!

    "Made progress with this method."
    What did you like most about Learn Italian with Paul Noble: Complete Course: Italian Made Easy with Your Personal Language Coach?

    Paul explained the language in a way I understood.


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

    Other language books don't really review and test what you have learnt.


    What does Paul Noble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Paul has a calm voice , which makes listening easier.


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

    You can't listen to the whole course in one sitting. I would say every 30 minutes chunks a day.


    Any additional comments?

    Paul repeats and reviews the content during this course quite a number of times - which really cements the lessons.
