Publisher's Summary

So, you're going to hit the road (or taking to the skies) and end up somewhere that speaks Spanish. Before you go, you want an audiobook that helps you get up to speed with a lot of the phrases you'll need as a traveler in a Spanish-speaking country. You've found the perfect match.

This audiobook covers multiple scenarios that you will run into as a traveler, such as picking bags up at the airport, purchasing food at a restaurant, and going shopping. By including stories that will teach you things after multiple listens, it also offers limitless potential in terms of what it enables you to say.

After one listen, you will feel confident with your basic Spanish. More listens will teach you extra vocabulary and help you intuitively and effectively pick up Spanish sentence structure. There is also a primer at the start of the audiobook that teaches you the essentials of speaking Spanish, before you jump into short stories, which ensures you aren't totally lost within the language. If you're looking for audio that is going to give you entertaining short stories, real world scenarios, and that's going to teach you to speak Spanish along the way, then I'm certain that you've found it.

Good for beginners

Really good for beginners but as an intermediate learner I feel like it definitely wasn't a complete course but I appreciate that would be very difficult to do so I think it was great

Clear and well constructed course particularly use

When the introduction started, I nearly gave up listening but once the course started, I was impressed at the pace, repetition, clarity of presentation and structure. Well worthwhile for revision and extension of phrase book Spanish. Covers simple tenses well. Enjoyed it enormously and partner got sucked in too!

Spanish Review

This course was fantastic. It was clear and methodical throughout. Although I listened to it the once, I will listen to it again and again,...nothing wrong with that. I wished that there was a follow up vocab, dictionary and grammar audiobook after but in all 5/5.

Great, but wish there was more complexity

I found this a lot easier to get through than the Michel course. Here, Paul delivers in a no nonsense style with no distracting joking or conversations. This isn't a classroom format like that as you have recordings of native speakers demonstrating the Spanish You go through some of the simpler grammatical concepts and they are explained well with a Latino and Castilian speaker most of the way Not very often you're challenged to say more complex or multiple sentences at a time which felt useful but unfortunately there wasn't much of it. This is a good starter's course or for anyone wanting to refresh or get a different perspective on the basic concepts

Inspiring

This course, like all Paul Noble courses was excellent. It is well paced, clear and very easy to follow with explanations and aide-memoire that actually work. It tells you almost everything you need to know to speak the language for a trip to Spain; or if you are going to spend longer there and need a good foundation. I have completed his Italian course and now look forward to French.

Great way to learn Spanish

This is a really easy to follow course … very easy to listen to. It goes at a good pace, and repeats lots of the vocabulary so there's no need to keep notes or worry that you've missed something. Highly recommended

Very effective method, would recommend.

Paul has a very easy, laid back style. He uses repetition like building blocks. I like that he uses native speakers to articulate Spanish words and phrases. This is an excellent beginner's course. I hope there's a follow up.
