Very good for a gentle introdution.
lots and lots of repertition which is worked well for a slow learner for me.
This is however a very basic introduction to spanish and should not be billed as 'spanish complete course'.
i would say this should be a beginers course and i would like to see a paul nobles intermidiate spanish course in the future.
Definatly worth a buy if you know little to no spanish and are looking for somewhere to start.
I liked the almost bland delivery with no attempts at jokes or quips that becomes. each rapidly tiresome. on a language course. His reluctance to use grammatical terms seemed a bit coy at times and borderline condescending. Concentrates a lot on the past tense. chunky chapters on numbers at the end lacked context and had no real value.
Very enjoyable and effective introduction to Spanish, Paul Noble's method really helps reenforce vocabulary learnt and provides the tools to start quickly building sentences. Would really like to see an Intermediate course as a follow on from this.
I found this to be as good as any other language course I've tried, and as far as it goes, it was a great start.
However, I wouldn't call this a "complete" course. I would call it the first month of a two year course. Trouble is - those other audiobooks are not out there!
When I ordered this, I saw there were other titles, and assumed (wrongly) that they followed on from this. They don't. They are sections within this "complete course". Ergo - I've already done them.
So, I can say "I'm going to ask why he doesn't understand that I can't buy it today"
But I can't say "How are you?" or "that's nice!"
Content wise - some areas are laboured over and over and over. Some areas are touched upon only once, in passing. Be prepared to do a lot of re-winding for more practice.
Now I need to find another course with more content to keep the learning going. Any suggestions?
I found this to be the best course I have tried and I feel that it has given me a lot of confidence to start speaking Spanish. I would thoroughly recommend it to beginners. The two negative comments I would have would be (a) I feel that it has only given me the basic skills and I would have liked to have gone further. To describe it as a "complete " course was misleading, and (b) it was a bit repetitive. Nevertheless, I found it very useful.
I don't know what it is exactly.... but the way Paul Noble teaches language is different than any other system I had tried. It seems to me that he teaches in the way we learnt to speak as children. It's all very natural and it sticks. I realised very early on that I was instinctively learning spanish and was able to use and build on what I learned very organically. I cannot recommend this audio book/ course highly enough. If you want to learn languages this is the book for you. You will not regret this purchase!
