10 weird and wonderful language facts from Paul NobleRead More
Ever tried to learn a language but found it too hard? Best-selling language expert Paul Noble has a quick and easy way to get you back on track with his unique tried-and-tested method.
Proven to work: Paul can teach anyone a language, even people who think they’re incapable.
Each and every little thing in this book has been put where it is, in a very particular order, for a very particular reason. So, if the book asks you to read or do something, then do it! Who’s the teacher after all, you or me, eh? Also, each part of the book builds on and reinforces what came before it. So, if you start skipping sections, you will end up confused and lost! Instead, you should just take your time and gently work your way through the book at your own pace – but without skipping anything!
Trying to jam things into your head is boring and it doesn’t work. People often cram for tests and then forget everything the moment they walk out of the exam. Clearly, we don’t want that happening here. Instead, I have designed this book so that any word or idea taught in it will come up multiple times. So, you don’t need to worry about trying to remember or memorise anything because the necessary repetition is actually already built-in. In fact, trying to memorise what you’re learning is likely to hinder rather than help your progress. So, just work your way through the book in a relaxed way and, if you happen to forget something, don’t worry because, as I say, you will be reminded of it again, multiples times, later on.
No, I’m not being a puritan grandmother and telling you to put on a long sleeved cardigan. Instead, I’m asking you to take a bookmark or piece of paper and use it to cover up any purple text that you come across as you work your way through the book. These purple bits are the answers to the various riddles, challenges and questions that I will pose as I lead you into the French language. If you read these answers without at least trying to work out the solutions to the various riddles and challenges first, then the book simply won’t work for you! So (as per the diagram below) use something to cover up the bits of purple text in the book while you have a go at trying to work out the answers – it doesn’t matter if you sometimes get them wrong because it is by trying to think out the answers that you will learn how to use the language. Trust me on this, you will see that it works from the very next page of this book!
