I am going through many mental issues and learning languages was one of the things recommended to me when I go to bed at night. It stops me from ruminating my horrible thoughts.
Paul has a relaxing voice and so does the German lady speaking German.
It is adding to my German skills I already had and is so easy to follow. Paul is very clear to try not to concentrate on remembering all that he teaches and it works.
I have French and Spanish too so it gives a hint on how easy they are to use, as well as the perfect nice relaxing remedy for my mental issues. Brilliant.
I really, really enjoyed this. I relearnt previous things I had forgotten, and a whole lot more. Easy to understand, paced perfect, and I couldn't wait to go and practise my German. Now I want to learn more and I'm looking for more advanced German learning books.
Only grumble, if I really had to find one, is that Pauls voice was so soothing I'd find myself asleep after 10 minutes, so I listened to it before bed. I don't feel there was 6000 words to learn either, maybe 1000 but I really feel I will remember them in the long term.
I haven't looked at the printed version, but I found the audible version quite brilliant as I could take it, listen and learn, anywhere. Unlike other on-line language courses.... I'm only interested in speaking the language, not reading or writing it.
I did know quite a few german words already, I spent a couple of years in Germany as a teenager. However, Paul Noble's course helped me put all those words into sentences, make sense of sentence structure, so that I can take any new words and use them. I found myself able to speak more confidently in every day situations (we spend quite a bit of time in German and North Italy).
Patience and structure
I would like a more advanced course to follow on.
A reasonable introduction but hardly complete. Extremely limited vocabulary . At times, extremely patronising. The three minutes wasted on the attempt to define a verb would embarrass a primary school teacher. The Michel Thomas method is far superior.
This audio book was extremely helpful in my preparation to visit Germany. I instantly remembered what I had learnt from school, as well as learn new phrases, words, and corrections to my pronunciation.
I found this course extremely helpful! I wanted to learn German for quite some time, but somehow always got very discouraged, because the first steps seemed like endless learning of vocabulary. Paul's method definitely made me stop feeling like that and only after 1-2 hours of listening, I could already make up so many little simple sentences. Loved all of it <3
Very nice and relaxing voice
Little too slow at places. Once I felt more confident and familiar with the content, I just put it on 1.5 speed. That worked great for me
