best language teacher EVER

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is the most easy, incredible way to learn a language that I have everrrrrr experienced. I bought all of the french language learning courses sold here on audible, and there is no competition AT ALL. My husband, who has struggled to learn another language for years, said, "I want to marry Paul Noble and have his babies!" (he was Just joking :) but he loves loves loves this course. And it is for the true beginner, BUT it is also great for those who took this in high school years ago, AND anyone needing any refresher. He is absolutely brilliant in his method! Better than Pimsleur BY FAR (yes, we bought Pimsleur too. With pimsleur, after HOURS you still can only speak about 50 words at most). The best! France, here I come this summer, and I am NOT going to sound like an AMERICAN idiot! Hooray!

Great approach to learning French!

Any additional comments?

This method presents French in a very accessible & rational way. He starts with some basic vocabulary and sentence structure and builds on it with (mostly) words that both French & English have in common. (The French-English words only vary by pronunciation and slight spelling differences.) He also gives helpful connections between words that are not of shared origin. This makes for learning through 'absorbing' rather than memorizing. And all of the vocabulary feels relevant. You can tell there was a lot of thought put into the material presented. The author narrates in a nice friendly voice and all of the French is spoken by a native speaker. I've bought the other audiobooks in the series and am finding them very beneficial.
