    "Absolutely 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.

    Highly recommended.

    "Adding to my knowledge"

    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.

    Story
    "A very good tool for linking together the language"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Learn German with Paul Noble: Complete Course: German Made Easy with Your Personal Language Coach to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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).


    Which character – as performed by Paul Noble – was your favourite?

    Paul Noble.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Patience and structure


    Any additional comments?

    I would like a more advanced course to follow on.

    "Perfect for revisiting school German"

    Bit slow to start off but after a few hours got more challenging. You can always play at 1.5x if it feels a bit sluggish. It was especially enjoyable relearning the grammar that makes more sense in my 30's than it did in my teens. Be aware though that you will 100% need to learn extra vocabulary to be able to use the German taught here practically but the course left me inspired to do so. Definitely recommend.

    Story
    "Poor and protracted"
    Would you try another book written by Paul Noble or narrated by Paul Noble?

    Not at all. This spiel is so drawn out and is intensely boring. Language learning has moved on, compared with Babbel which at least gets down to the basics, where grammar and syntax are part of learning. This course is over its time, and I would say has now limited appeal.


    Has Learn German with Paul Noble: Complete Course: German Made Easy with Your Personal Language Coach put you off other books in this genre?

    Of course


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Noble’s performances?

    No


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

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    Time is essential in learning a language. This course takes up time, and not one that I would recommend.

    "A must have for language learning"

    A different and fantastic approach to learning languages.
    It is a true must have and a perfect starting point. I couldn't recommend this book more.

    A fantastic learning experience

    "Not a complete course at all..."

    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.

    "Decent but Repetitive"

    Overly repetitive in areas, skipped most of book 2 as recommended by other listeners, and hadn't missed anything in the review at the end.

    "A very good refresher/Quickstart course!"

    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.
