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 Italian language and guide you through over 12 hours of everyday scenarios – from simple situations like asking for directions and eating out to talking about yourself and how to master the different tenses – 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 Spanish quickly and confidently. 

Two native-speaking Spanish experts 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 contains the entire course – Parts 1, 2, and 3. To continue your language learning journey once you’ve completed this course, download Next Steps in Spanish with Paul Noble for Intermediate Learners – Complete Course.

Loved it! I feel like I learned a lot!

So I've been trying to really get this Spanish thing down! I used Pimsleur for 4 months (completed the 5 levels) and I learned a lot! What I like about this that's different from Pimsleur is that he gives you tips and tricks on how to turn English words into Spanish or explains why something is done this way or that way whereas Pimsleur was more conversational with no real explanation why certain words were said they were. Now, I love Pimsleur, don't get me wrong. I think they're both great. But again, I'm more of a person who likes to know the why as I find it helps it stick better. I suggest doing both honestly. It definitely made my daily commutes quite enjoyable.

Finally... after 5 years of classes. This works!!

I'm only 3 chapters in and I'm already rating this 5 stars. I wish that I had learned these "tricks" years ago. I think this is also helpful in helping support English language learners. I wish I had time to just zip through this book. After 5 classes and countless hours of Duolingo, I'm finally acquiring vocabulary (WITHOUT memorizing) and conversational Spanish. FYI, this book teaches both kinds of Spanish (he uses a male voice for one a female voice for the other to make it easy to discern).

Author has a fascination with donuts and baggets

Great audiobook. Highly recommended. My only complaints are the author spends an hour or more making sure you can order donuts and baggets in Spain. He will spend an hour beating a simple concept into your head, but will briefly gloss over new complex concepts then never mention then again. The native central American speaker isn't used anymore half way through the book and it's all the speaker from Spain. With that said it was a great audiobook.

Awesome! Just lacking signposts

This audio book is especially effective at getting you to practice and speak Spanish. It really helped build my confidence with pronunciation and helped that I had learned more of the words before so it was okay that they weren’t spelled out every time. My biggest critique is the lack of signposts or chapter names. It’s nearly impossible to go back and practice something because they never tell you names of chapters or what you’re practicing when.

Gave me a good start in the Spanish language!

I really enjoyed learning through this course! it helped me very much. It was all very clear and understandable. I didn't know much Spanish besides hola and buenos dias. but now I feel I can really have a basic conversation and get around a bit if I'm in a Spanish speaking country. Now I'm going on another next course! :)

Excellent

Highly recommend if you need a program that is audio based only, for example if you are driving or don’t have internet reception all the time.

Great learning experience for traveling

I liked how easy and quick Paul gets you speaking useful phrases. If you’re looking for something deeper than vocabulary for travel or expanding vocabulary from an intermediate level the later sections will be more interesting.

Excellent for learning a language while running

I can't recommend this highly enough as a means of learning Spanish while engaged in some physical activity, such as running, where it is not practical to refer to notes at the same time. The question / answer format and the way that the course is structured, making heavy use of repetition, makes it very effective. The course assumes English as the learner's native language.
