Publisher's Summary

Collins Spanish with Paul Noble combines an exciting, new, non-traditional 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 ground-breaking new method of language teaching that removes the need for months of studying. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.

Part 2 of the course covers:

  • Travelling by bus and train
  • Making reservations
  • Asking for directions
  • Past tense

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.)

great way to learn Spanish

Builds on vocab while gradually introducing new vocab. I like the repetition as it assists in better retention, for me.

Good but too slow going

Everything is very well explained but it really didn't cover much ground before it was over.

Too much repetition

Part one was good, but I felt like this was far too slow and repetitive. There was not enough new content and far too much rehashing of part one, which you could get by replaying that yourself if needed. Although Paul's explanations of the rules are good, constantly having to repeat simple two and three word phrases like "es romantico" and "soy de londres" got intensely annoying.

Clear and easy to understand but wanted more

A lot was a reinforcement of the first book which does help to embed what has been learnt bit sometimes a little tedious. I would have like to have seen more vocab variety

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.

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.

A Bit Too Rigid.

Any additional comments?

Nice conversational approach to learning Spanish. Paul talks and the natives chime in. I found this program to be a bit too rigid though for my taste. A similar (and I think superior) program that I have used and learned an enormous amount of Spanish from is from a guy named Frobose. Power Spanish and Conversational Latin American Spanish. All good programs too. Slightly more expensive but well worth the extra money.

Don't be fooled, this is basic Spanish

I was looking for a really good intermediate level Spanish audiobook, but I bought this and was extremely disappointed. The book has just about as much English as it does Spanish. All of the grammar and vocabulary is extremely basic. I'm glad I didn't start from book 1.

Learn spanish #2 good, 1-3 good,don't buy book #4

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?

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

Easy way to lean

These books are a great way to learn Spanish while driving to work. The driving mode also makes it easier to rewind .

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. :(
