Publisher's Summary

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 groundbreaking new method of language teaching that removes the need for months of study. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.
Part 2 of the course covers:


Numbers
Eating out
Asking for directions
At the train station

A native-speaking German expert helps Paul to deliver the course and to perfect your pronunciation. No complicated grammatical explanations, 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. A downloadable booklet is also included to use as a reference and revision tool.
Learn German with Paul Noble combines an exciting, new, nontraditional approach to language learning with the easy, relaxed appeal of an audio-only product. No books. No rote memorisation. No chance of failure.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Nothing new compared to part one

Would you try another book written by Paul Noble or narrated by Paul Noble?

I would be nervous of purchasing any more from Paul Noble unless I could establish that I was going to learn something new.


Would you ever listen to anything by Paul Noble again?

His teaching method is sound, if a tad basic and slow. I have polished up my French and started German from scratch with him. You do need to top up with learning vocab from other sources, however. But he does explain basic grammar well.


What about Paul Noble’s performance did you like?

Unlike other language courses, he doesn't overwhelm you with 20 news words a minute, 98% of which you are likely to forget.


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really, no. Part one was excellent, but this is a big disappointment.


Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money on this - there is absolutely nothing in it that isn't covered in his part one of learning German, in fact part one will take you further. I listened to the entire book thinking "yes, yes, we've done all this, bring on the new stuff" but it just never came.... this would be better entitled 'Paul Noble Revision book to Part One'

If you have part 1, don't buy part 2

Would you try another book written by Paul Noble or narrated by Paul Noble?

I am going to return this book for a refund, if I can. I enjoyed Part 1 and thought Part 2 will pick it up where Part 1 left it, but to my surprise Part 2's material repeats Part 1, but plays it in less time. So I really wonder, why someone needs to pay more money to buy Part 2 (which costs more than Part 1) to hear exactly same material? Description of the book says nothing about material's 100% overlap with Part 1 book. I think description should say so that to avoid deception and false expectations.


What was most disappointing about Paul Noble’s story?

Part 2's material repeats Part 1, so I really wonder, why someone needs to Part 2 if he/she already owns Part 1? And why it is called Part 2, if it doesn't continue to build on knowledge obtained in Part 1? Description of the book says nothing about material's 100% overlap with Part 1 book. I think description should say so that to avoid deception and false expectations.


How could the performance have been better?

If the Book is called Part 2, it should teach more advanced material than Part 1. Paul Noble published 4 parts for German language course, but after my negative experience with Part 2, I am not going to buy Part 3 because I am afraid there will be nothing new there. I would expect more from Part 2 and Part 3, particularly more new words and more advanced material, more complex sentences. I think the Paul's method is good, but he should not stop at the very basics and take his method to more advanced students.
