Collins Spanish with Paul Noble combines an exciting new, nontraditional approach to language learning with the easy, relaxed appeal of an audio-only product. No books. No rote memorisation. No chance of failure.
Paul Noble is a genius with a higher IQ than Einstein. Despite this, he still struggled with language learning at school. He found himself feeling 'confused, incapable and unable to really say anything'. As a result of his negative early experiences, Paul has come up with a groundbreaking new method of language teaching that removes the need for months of studying. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.
Part 3 of the course covers:
Two native-speaking Spanish experts help Paul to deliver the course and to perfect your pronunciation in both Latin American and Iberian Spanish. No complicated grammatical explanations, no rote memorisation, no writing - no stress. Learn over 6,000 words in no time at all, and - most importantly - learn how to make your new vocabulary work for you. (Use the accompanying booklet as a reference and revision tool.)
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Paul takes you through Spanish and you really feel like you are progressing. Some bits a a bit hard, but then again you are learning a new language. I do not feel I'm am fluent in Spanish by the end of part 3, but certainly feel I have a basic understanding to support my travel and learn more.
"Great way to pick up spanish"
Continues the line of Learn Spanish books with fun and easy ways to learn to speak it.
Yes, I have listened to books 1 and 2. This book continues the tradition and helps to learn spanish!
I appreciated the pace at which Paul worked, and the way he cleverly linked much of what I know already in English to what I did not know in Spanish. This increased not only my vocabulary but my confidence. I am traveling in Mexico now, and I'm amazed at how much I'm remembering. So much fun! Thank you Paul!
"Great way to begin learning Spanish!"
listened to all three to start leaning Spanish and gain building blocks necessary to continue. if you are looking to learn enough to travel, these three lessons will leave you comfortable to speak as you need to.
Useful words for travel and everyday communication. The format provides a good amount of speaking practice.
"Great course before vacation to Mexico"
This is a good course for someone planning a vacation in a Spanish speaking country. After completing the course I'm able to speak short phrases that will allow me to order food at a cafe , purchase goods, communicate with a doctor, and ask for basic directions and locations. I'm not remotely fluent in Spanish and I'm not able to follow conversations among spanish speaking people. If your goal is to become fluent in Spanish I recommend a more comprehensive course.
"very helpful and fun"
I really enjoyed all three audios. Spanish spoken very clearly. very helpful. I wish Paul had more Spanish audios available.
"Well organized format, good tempo."
Went through conjugation too quickly. But best format I've found, with adequate repetition. I wish the would do a 3-B. Also use words related to work or production rather than travel.
Buyer beware! If you are looking for an advanced audio book for learning Spanish, this is NOT the book for you. I bought Collins Learn Spanish number 2 and number 3, thinking that they would have more advanced lessons than the first audio book. Unfortunately, I was very wrong. I wasted 2 credits on these books. "How would you say... a waste of money?" This audio book is about 20 percent "How would you say...." 70 percent a waste of time on repetition, and 10 percent useful. After 3 hours of audio, this book is still trying to teach you the personal pronouns tú, usted, ustedes, ellos, ellas, él, and ella. The entire final chapter is counting. That's an entire hour of counting - half in English! Really? I'd like 90 percent of my money back.
"Books 1-3 good, Book #4 a rippoff at 19minutes"
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
Best spanish audio tapes I have heard.....I just wish there was more of them!
Easy to understand....easy to follow....excellent explanations.
Iv been learning spanish for over a year now and i can honestly say this is the best learning aid i have found. Unlike other learning aids Paul Noble teaches you the core of the language. Which is why the language has finally 'clicked' in my mind. Now any extra vocab i pick up i will know exactly how and where to use it in a sentence.
In sort get this if you want to learn....you wont be disappointed
Iv used rossetta stone which i found useless but I would recommend duolingo (android app).
"Very good ALONGSIDE studying Spanish"
I have audiobooks 1 to 4 by this author. I believe that these and any other Spanish audiobooks are only good in conjunction with continued study of the language. You will not learn another language solely by listening to this or any other audiobook
"A must have for learning Spanish"
I started learing Spanish through this course a year ago and found it fantastic. I finished the whole course and left my learning Spanish for about 6 months. I then decided to back over the course and was amazed that I remembered about 80% of what I'd learned this is down to the way the course is structured with repitition but not in a monotonous manner. I have quite a poor memory but it doesn't seem to hinder my learning. I highly reccomend this course if you're serious about learning Spanish. You'll be amazed how quickly you progress. Thank you Paul Nobel for setting me on the road to leaning another language. I never thought I'd be able to do it.
"great way to speak a language I need part 4"
love the way he relates the Latin parts of English to Spanish - it gives you an instant vocabulary.
also like the two speakers - one Latin American the other Iberian
"The best of the set of 3 audios"
If you are trying to learn Spanish or simply need a refresher then I'd recommend the three audios by Paul Noble.
I have tried a number of e learning modules and this is by far the best series. I will be recommending it.
It is a great way to learn a language and helping especially my pronounciation
I think Paul's courses are the best to learn quickly to speak a new language
"What a great way to learn Spanish!"
I have enjoyed all 3 Learn Spanish books equally, and although I'm aware there is a 4th, I would like to see further books for learning more advanced Spanish language. From what I understand, the 4th book is a review of the first three books, but I am hungry for more challenges and to delve deeper into the grammar and vocabulary! Paul Noble- if you read this - make some more please! 3 (or 4) aren't enough!! :-)
"Very little vocabulary per session - very tedious,"
I know repetition aids learning in language acquisition but you can go too far!
All the words introduced were very similar to the English words anyway and we're repeated far too many times. The gaps for you to take in the " new information" were so long that I thought there was a fault with my phone.
Easy money Mr Noble - you didn't have to think a lot!
