Description

Collins Italian 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 study. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.

Part 1 of the course covers:

  • Language ground rules
  • The use of the past tense
  • Numbers
  • Essential vocabulary to use when booking into a hotel, taking a taxi, and eating out

Use the accompanying booklet as a reference and revision tool. A native-speaking Italian expert helps Paul to deliver the course and to perfect your pronunciation. 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.

Such a great way to learn!

Loved it! Paul is an excellent teacher and it felt very natural. Some might find it slow moving but I found it to be the right speed for me. Just purchased part 2.

Amazing audio but no accompanying reference material found along with the audio

I’ve learned a lot already thanks to this method. I love it. However, I haven’t found the accompanying reference material which is sad. I love to learn and would like to read what I’ve heard so I could also learn to read and eventually write what I’ve learned so far.

Mind Numbingly Boring

Any additional comments?

I can’t understand why anyone would think that Paul Noble is such a great language teacher. I literally fell asleep just listening to his “ground rules” on the audio sample on this page. I still ordered the program and continued sleeping through it as he droned on endlessly in a low-energy monotone.
I don’t know about you, but I want to speak ITALIAN. If you’ve ever heard real Italians speak, you’ll notice that they are extremely HIGH ENERGY people with a lively language.
To give you some contrast, check out the Power Italian 1 Accelerated by Mark Frobose. The free audio sample will explain why I think “Learn Italian the Natural Way” should be named “Learn Italian (Maybe) While You Sleep”.
Power Italian is much better in every way.
So is “Learn in Your Car Italian” by Penton Overseas. They blast you with a gong every now and then between lessons, but at least you stay awake.
I also learned some Italian with a memory technique that’s almost as good as Frobose’s in Power Italian. It’s the famous Pimsleur programs, which are also quite good, but just use a very limited vocabulary base.

Making Language Learning Painless

Great natural way to learn a language. Found that I understood concepts later when I encountered them in real life.

Repetition is the key to learning

Paul has a very calm voice and teaches basic concepts in this beginner book. At first I thought I was going to be bored, and then I realized that the key to learning was through repetition. Every lesson builds on the next and his explanations are clear and concise. The female translator speaks so well and it's easy to hear every letter. I am using this book along with other apps and in person lessons- I am finding it very helpful as a foundation to learning the Italian language - a note, every time you start/stop - be sure to rewind - as it's so easy to forget what you previously learned and this reinforces the older material then you pick up new material.

So easy to follow along and learn

Loved the narrator and the Italian lady who speaks clearly. This provides great instructions of how to conjugate words in an easy way and how to build useful sentences. Looking for part 2 now.

Good but not perfect

Good structure and sets up core principles fairly well.
My only complaint is the person doing the Italian pronunciation could have been more articulate. It is a little bit hard to hear at times.
But I recommend it still.

Took me from grammar to basic speaking

I did some beginner Italian with an app and even tried online classes, but felt like I hit a wall. This book helped immensely with having the confidence to speak Italian and make up some of my own sentences. The repetition is exactly what I needed for my learning style. I am excited for the “Next steps” now.

Quite decent

This book made it incredibly easy to follow along and learn Italian words and grammar, and while some may find the repetitiveness tedious or annoying, it’s honestly helpful.

However, there are words in here that someone learning Italian doesn’t need to learn, and i’m not sure why the book pushes them (tent, camping, piazza). The book should push more words that are common in everyday talk. And maybe they should spell out the words because it wasn’t until I looked up the words that I realized I was saying them incorrectly (to wait is aspettare and I thought it was espettare).

Overall a good place to start learning Italian, but don’t expect to be able to say much in a conversation. At most, I can order food or ask for the price of something.

boring but good

the narrator's voice and the responders are extremely boring and difficult to hear. However if you turn it up very loudly the information is all very good and easy to learn. Gives you all sorts of relevant information to learning very basic stuff

Terrible

The “ato” in “tomato”....come on. There are much better audiobooks to learn Italian than this British nonsensical garbage.
