Summary

With Paul Noble’s simple, relaxed approach you will learn in a way that suits you – without having to memorise long lists of words you won’t use, scribbling notes as you listen, or feeling frustrated. Instead, Paul will help you build on what you learnt in Learn Spanish with Paul Noble for Beginners – Part One, and guide you through over 3 hours of everyday scenarios that are practical, fun, and applicable. Just listen, interact, and learn wherever you are.

Two native-speaking Spanish experts (one from Spain and one from Latin America) will help you to perfect your pronunciation as you progress through the course. You will learn a huge range of vocabulary in no time at all, and be able to quickly make your new knowledge work for you in a variety of everyday scenarios. A downloadable booklet is also included to use as a reference and revision tool.

Paul Noble left school unable to speak a language – having found that the traditional learning methods left him feeling ‘confused, incapable and unable to really say anything’. Determined that there must be a better way to learn, Paul spent years devising his own unique method of learning languages which cuts out all the grammar, all the memorisation, and all the stress. He began using his method to teach in his Language Institute and, thousands of students later, he prides himself on never having had a student fail.

This download is Part Two of a three-part course. Once you’ve finished Part Two, download Learn Spanish with Paul Noble for Beginners – Part Three.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Brilliant and thankfully addictive

I can't believe how much Spanish I have learnt in such a short time! I was a complete beginner - no longer!

The programme seems to finish mid chapter

It’s a great learning system and I love it but the audible book ends seemingly mid learning. No ending to it so it feels like it’s just been cut off. I’d have given it a 5 stars had it not seemed to end this way

by far the best way to learn a language

Previously I have learnt French and German the traditional way by memorising word lists and different forms of verbs.
This is a much more relaxed way. I particularly like the way the Latin parts of the English language are converted to Spanish,, as you immediately have a long list of English words easily converted to Spanish.

Rehash of the first Learn Spanish

I didn’t learn anything new. The whole content seemed to be a rehash of the first Learn Spanish. ‘Plus’, to me, implies I’m getting something extra which wasn’t the case. Waste of money.

  • Overall
    4 out of 5 stars

Very good

Only criticism is that the lessons didnt get progressively harder, seemed to be easier if anything. Overall very good however for getting to grips with Spanish.

Disappointing and repetitive 😒

I am very disappointed with this audiobook.

I very much enjoyed the first one in the Spanish series - the easy style disguised the clever structure and logical sequence. I really felt that I made progress both quickly and relatively easily. I had, therefore, high hopes for this volume and was looking forward to moving on again. Sadly, I don’t feel that I have.

I am a language teacher myself, so am well aware of the value of repetition to embed learning. However, repetition should be the basis of further development (zone of proximal development, to use the technical term) and not just an activity for the sake of it.

If you have completed the first volume in the series and feel you would benefit from some review and revision, then this will definitely be of help. If, however, you are looking for the next step in your development, give this one a miss and move on to the next.

Great - but listen to the set of 3 in order

Would you consider the audio edition of Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 2 to be better than the print version?

Yes. The audio encourages you to speak. The book, which is a free pdf, is great for reference.

Any additional comments?

I am learning more with this set of 3 audios than I have at a year of classes.

Legendary!! Must buy!!

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.

Not a lot of new material

Good format to learn Spanish but the first 1/3 of the book was review from the first book. He also didn't introduce very many new words or phrases. Not worth the purchase.

Easy to follow, not boring, clear pronunciation

I felt like I could say actual sentences very easily and very quickly. Much better than just learning vocabulary, there are lots of memory cues and things stuck in my head much better than expected. I had done a university course in spanish 15 years ago, so some of it was already familiar but the way the informaton is laid out is very intuitive.
I did wish I had noticed you can buy the entire package for one audible credit - I ended up spending 3 credits where I could have just spent one. :(

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 1-3 are good and 3-4 hours worth of material, watch out and don't buy book #4 thought it's only 19minutes

Amazing! Maravillosa!

I have been doing a little bit of this every day and finding it so very helpful. It is easy to follow and Paul helps you put it together so flawlessly that before you know it you're really understanding Spanish!

Easy to follow. Easy listening. Good repetition

Very easy to follow

I got this series out of boredom at the tail end of the pandemic shut down. I grew up speaking "spainglish" and I thought it was time I learned to speak properly. Paul Nobel makes learning easy. He uses repetition so I was able to remember what I learned all the way through. Although, not the best for conversational Spanish it is perfect if you are planning/dreaming of a vacation in Spain or Latin America. I highly recommend this series.

Practical Spanish

I've been using this along with a Spanish class to help with conversation skills. The repetition is great. The common phrases are very useful.

Best Teacher Ever!

LOVE his accent! It is totally brilliant to have two native speakers (Latin America and Spain) working with Paul! Genius!
