Publisher's Summary

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
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.)

Great introduction into learning Italian.

Learning Italian with Paul Noble was so easy. I suprised myself how easy it was to learn the language using this technique. He also shows you little ways and clues to remember the words and phrases. Just brilliant!!

Great value, excellent way to learn

What made the experience of listening to Collins Italian with Paul Noble - Learn Italian the Natural Way, Part 1 the most enjoyable?

I normally use Michel Thomas method language lessons but initially chose Paul Noble for Italian because of the bad reviews Michel Thomas Italian received. Paul Noble uses a method very similar to Michel Thomas but more methodical and with a native Italian speaker for better pronunciation. On the downside Paul Noble is very slow moving both in terms of progress and slow speaking which I found so irritating that I switched back to Michel Thomas.

However as I found out, the bad reviews of Michel Thomas Italian are well deserved, so found myself switching back to Paul Noble. This time I set the play speed to x1.25 and this made all the difference.

To start learning a new language my experience is that Michel Thomas or Paul Noble is a must. Paul Noble is certainly better value than Michel Thomas but you may prefer Michel Thomas' style like I do. However for Italian I'd strongly recommend you choose Paul Noble.
