    "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.

    "Very good"

    I didn't know any German before listening to this. But now I know quite a bit. I don't feel I'm ready for full on conversations yet I feel I would have to listen through the course again. But it's a very good starting point how it goers the phrases in your head and how you remember them. Definitely recommend especially for grammar and pronunciation if you're a beginner. Also look up online for the PDF to this course as that's a big help too so you can learn to read it as well.

    "Sooo slow and repetitive..."
    What would have made Learn German with Paul Noble: Complete Course: German Made Easy with Your Personal Language Coach better?

    Paul Noble's explanations were so long-winded and his delivery was sooo slow and repetitive that I had to abandon the course as I was in danger of throwing something at my car's audio system! A shame as the German speaker was very clear and easy to copy.

    "Best language course I've done"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    For any friend looking to learn German I'd certainly recommend this course. Its pace is nice and slow with thorough explanations and repetition. Some reviewers say it is rather patronising, and I can see what they mean. However, I take no offence at the simple questions, which can have very easy answers, because it provides a firm foundation that does not leave me lost as it begins to get more complicated.

    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

    "If only schools taught like this"

    I had never studied German before listening to this audiobook, I was quite sceptical to what a few hours of lectures could do but I am truly impressed. I can now grasp the gist of several discussions and can communicate basic sentences.
