The best audiobook I have bought so far

Give it time. Its a hidden gem
The author and narrator clearly knows his subject and is very capable of expressing his opinions . He is clearly knowledgeable and can explain the concepts very well. Initially I was irritated by the narrator's tone, his way of speaking seemed insincere and came across as kind of affected. He speaks very slowly and in a softened tone, and at times it seemed like he wass deliberately trying to project an image of "inner peace"
I must admit however that as I listened to the audio book that it became apparent that I was being unfair and intolerant.
The content is excellent and the narration became more enjoyable as I got further into the book.
Why am I spending so much time discussing the narrator? Because I nearly gave up and returned the title on my initial reaction, and that would have been a huge mistake, I really enjoyed this title and relisten to it regularly. Do not dismiss this title of you find the narrator's tone affected. It's really not and you will miss out .

Eye (ear?) Opening!
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!
