Publisher's 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 introduce you to the basics of the French language and guide you through over 3 hours of everyday scenarios that are practical, fun, and applicable. Just listen, interact, and learn wherever you are.

Whatever your experience with languages, whether you’re an absolute beginner or someone with basic knowledge who wants to improve their ability, this is the course to get you speaking French quickly, confidently, and with no chance of failure. 

A native-speaking French expert 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 One of a three-part course. Once you’ve finished Part One, download Learn French with Paul Noble for Beginners – Part Two.

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.

An excellent interactive learning aid.

Warning: This book is interactive and will require you to consistently speak aloud. Not for passive learning, so it may not be the best thing if you plan on learning in a public space.
The author takes a really unique and effective approach. The book includes some clever tips and tricks and has a perfect pace to keep you engaged and on your toes. Highly recommend in combination with other methods.

You will learn survival phrases within the hour

I can honestly say I learned how to speak more French with the three chapters in this book than I have during months of Duolingo. If pronunciation and real world phrases are your weak points, then you'll find this book VERY productive.

Great French Intro

This is a great introduction to speaking French. Noble is clear in explaining basic concepts and getting you started in the language. He also focus on expressions one would use as a tourist visiting France.

Amazing

Paul's explanation of history and language unlocks thousands of French words. I'm looking forward to book #2.

Easy to follow

I am not a beginner to French, but I wanted to start with the very basics to get back into it. This audio book and lessons were very easy to follow.
I will be purchasing the next set of lessons and can't wait to dive in!

Great teaching tecnhique-simple and effective

He uses a great pace so that it is not too fast, but fast enough so it is not boring. And he comes back to each phrase and concept for reinforcement. He does not waste energy on complicated grammatical terminology, but rather gets to and reinforces the point quickly and effectively.

This is the most enjoyable way to learn French!

I have listened to this book and book 2 multiple times - love the natural progression of vocabulary learning as well as grammar explanations. Will eventually search for the continuation of this course - it does not look like Audible has it.
