I feel that Paul does a fantastic job of starting slowly for those who have not had any German. I also appreciated his explanations of how some of the words translate from English to German. This book might be a little slow if one has had German in high school. Parts 2 and 3 do not include any additional vocabulary and may be a better choice for those wishing to review something they learned, but have not used for many years.
I rated the performance 4/5 stars because there were a few times that the proper pronunciation was slightly difficult to understand.
New content should have been included. I could understand a brief review of existing material, but there was nothing new in this book. I thought part 1 was excellent. I appreciated explanations of some of the words. I also think Paul does a fantastic job of teaching German to someone who has not had any exposure. The only reason I rated this title so low was because it is part 3 in the series, but doesn't add anything to the learning process.
I like the concept but the execution here just doesn't work for me. I went with this based off ratings, but this is just too distracting for me.
