Publisher's Summary

Learn Spanish with short stories volume one and two!

Book 1

Are you looking for a fantastic and in-depth way to learn a new language? Why not treat your brain and go about it the natural way? That’s right, your brain has a natural way of learning language, and you simply aren’t taking advantage of it.

Our brains are hardwired to act on a complex system of concepts and context clues to figure out language. Therefore, most polyglots in the world will tell you that the absolute best way to learn a language is by simply immersing yourself in it.

With this audiobook, you’ll be going through different short stories, all of which following the story of a girl named Maria and her kind family from El Salvador. Throughout the short stories, you’ll be challenged and pushed to your limits - that’s how you know the method is working. You’ll never be left in the dust, but you will most certainly be immersed in the beautiful Spanish language. After every short story, there’s an English version, in case you got totally lost, and a section with grammar tips and vocabulary to help you round out every short story with a proper lesson.

Book 2

So, you’re going to be hitting the road (or taking to the skies) and ending up somewhere that speaks Spanish. Before you get there, you want a book that will help you feel up to speed with a lot of the phrases that you’ll need as a traveler in Spanish-speaking countries. You’ve found the perfect match.

This audiobook covers multiple scenarios that you’re going to run into as a traveler, such as picking bags up at the airport, purchasing food at a restaurant, and going shopping.

It also offers limitless potential in terms of what it enables you to say by having the stories be set up in such a way that you’re still learning things even after multiple listens. One will have you feeling confident in your basic Spanish - more will have you learning extra vocabulary and picking up Spanish sentence structure intuitively and effectively.

If I can learn French, anyone can

How I wish Paul Noble had been my foreign language professor in college. His teaching technique is brilliant. I’m actually speaking French after this level 1 audiobook.

Best language courses

Paul Noble gives best language courses and at a super great price, too. In my opinion, Plimseur is similar but not as friendly and really just doesn't have same heart, so I'd prefer these; but Plimseur covers more languages and probably more in depth, so I rely on those for when these aren't available. Of course these are a lot cheaper as well, which makes me very happy.

Very very good

I have learnt a lot of French from this. I am sure if I repeat just Chapters 2 & 3 a couple times i will learn every thing in this part 1. Seems very possible.

Very helpful and easy to use

I found this recording very helpful as I am an intermediate French speaker and it was a great review of some of the more basic verbs like pouvoir, avoir and vouloir. It would also be helpful for beginners who want to grasp some of the basics before travelling.

Different and outstanding

Paul explains how French related to the way English speakers would say things. This is rare, and tremendously helpful. I do want some theory, such as how is this verb conjugated, but that is easily available elsewhere to supplement this course.

Learning to speak a language

This is not fancy or glamorous, but does teach the needed vocabulary for basic conversation in French in a short period of time. I have studied Spanish in multiple formats including Rosetta Stone, Barron’s, and even taking college classes. I wish I would have started Spanish the way I am starting French. I highly recommend this way of learning how to speak the language.

I'm learning!

Never had luck with language courses before but I'm actually learning this time. I haven't got the best short-term memory but somehow Noble's approach really works for me. I'm heading to France for the first time next month and this course is exactly what I need to feel confident in going with basic verbal communication skills. Highly recommended.

Very efficient exercises

Well-organized audible, and has very efficient practice exercises. It is very easy for my 12yo son to write the answers to the exercises in a notebook, and just challenging enough to really help him grow.

was not useful for me as I intercepted

i didn't find this book as useful as the other book I came across for letting Spanish. it would make it more useful to start the English story before the Spanish one.

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).

So amazing and strategically efficient!

Several years ago, I lived in Costa Rica and went to language school for several months. I learned almost as much in the short time I listed to this book as I did during my time there! The way this book is structured makes it so easy to learn and understand the major concepts of Spanish and I’m so glad I found it!

Good Book

I found this easy to understand and follow along. This book teaches a foundation of concepts that will make continuing to learn the vocabulary more useful and beneficial.

It has unlocked Spanish for me!

I had a couple years of Spanish in high school and I have travelled to Mexico a few times. This program has unlocked Spanish for me. I'm not sure if it would make sense to someone as a "first time" course, but it sure is useful for those knowing at least a little bit. Very well done.

Great Solidification

This has been a great audiobook to listen and learn to. I already knew a good amount of Spanish but conversational Spanish and forming “past tense” sentences are/were my weaknesses. After listening and practicing with this audiobook, I’m a lot more confident with forming the past tense and future sentences. This audiobook will definitely help anyone looking to improve their Spanish.
