Helps even helpless cases like me

Very good method and Paul Noble has a friendly style.
I wish there were more audiobooks to go beyond level 3.

Best way to learn Italian

Wasted so much time on interactive apps like Duolingo when I should have been listening to these books! Highly recommend.

Easiest method, no stress.

Easy method with lots of repetition. Follows on from previous book easily. Particularly like the last chapter that has practice of pretty much everything covered in the book.

Easy to learn, fun to learn!

I found the series engaging and easy, yet challenging enough not to bore. Great fun!

Fabulous!!

I've tried just about every way out there to learn Italian, including studying the language in college and even living in Italy for a few months. I learned a lot of the technicalities but couldn't get to the point I was comfortable putting it all together. This system is by far the best I've ever tried and is finally getting me where I wanted to be. He gives simple, practical direction on verb conjugations and you learn quickly. I'm onto level four now and feel like I'm finally putting the language together after just two weeks listening to this system on my commute to work. I'm more comfortable speaking than ever before, and just so happy I found this. Fabulous language system at a fabulous price!

left me hanging?

I've been through all the books in this course. Sure it gave me a great basis for the language, but a recommendation on additional courses to take would be welcome. I don't want to take another course that starts at the beginning, I would like to pick up where they left off. should give a suggestion for that at the end for those that want to continue.

Very good, but...

I'm a huge fan of the Paul Noble language series. On various trips over the past few years I've used his courses to help learn some valuable French, German, Spanish, and Italian. This series has 'done me a solid' countless times. Paul Noble is a great teacher, and I constantly recommend this audio series to friends and family.

HOWEVER, after completing both the French and Italian courses through all 3 levels, I can definitely say that the French one is so much better. Truth be told, I was a little frustrated by the 3rd part of the Italian series. Paul's priorities seemed a little weird. He spent tons of time teaching us how to say "heat stroke" and yet he spends hardly any time at all on present tense verb conjugations and on using all of the different forms of "you." At the end of the course, it was like he was trying to cram in all of the really important stuff he still hadn't taught. On a trip to Italy, I felt tongue-tied and restricted several times, especially when trying to bumble through the present tense.

My advice--get this series, because it's awesome. However, study present tense verb conjugations on your own.

And if you get heat stroke, you'll be set!

Good format

Where does Collins Italian with Paul Noble - Learn Italian the Natural Way, Part 3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I found that Collins Italian has many creative and varied ways to approach Italian. I really liked it. It covered parts of conjugation that no other audio recordings did. It's very thorough and intense. It was one of my favorite audios.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Collins Italian with Paul Noble - Learn Italian the Natural Way, Part 3?

Helping me through various aspects of the language I didn't quite understand and making it clear.

Well worth the cost!

A little fast at the end and it certainly will have you reviewing the last chapter more frequently then the others. Well worth the cost. the best language course I found. Do wish I had the books though. Will look for them online.

Great learning tool!

It’s very easy to follow, and the way the books are structured it makes you remember things that were taught early on. Made me feel very comfortable during my holiday in Italy.

Effective

After trying many of the language courses available, this is one of the ones I have chosen to keep using. It's easy to grasp and quiet enjoyable.

one of the best

I have tried numerous courses in Italian and this is one of the best.
I like the format. Paul Noble asks the questions in English and a native speaker gives the answers in Italian. it definitely focuses on the needs of a traveler. My only wish is that it would continue to a more advanced level.

20 stars!

Honestly the most effective and enjoyable way to learn a new langauge. Professor Noble's method should be used in all educational institutions across all academic levels. Truly grateful for discovering this CD collection on audible and the accompanying pdf was priceless and easy to access from desktop (not mobile device). I look forward to taking on Spanish!

Wow - I feel so competent so quickly - loving it!

Where does Collins Italian with Paul Noble - Learn Italian the Natural Way, Part 3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

These Paul noble audiobooks are fab - have picked up so much so quickly and feel I really retain what he has taught, due to the explanation, and leaps in my learning. I also can recognise where I have made a mistake, whereas before, I would not have known!!
