    "This is brilliant!!"

    I always wanted to learn German but have heard horrors stories of hours upon hours spent studying vowels sounds and conjugations. This condenses it and makes it so user friendly. Take the plunge, you will not regret it, Great price too!!

    "A ver enjoyable way to learn"
    Any additional comments?

    Paul Noble promotes this as being for people who aren't normally very good at languages. As one of these people, I've found it excellent.

    The course starts of with some simple concepts that are similar to English - "I Can", "Can I ... ?" and doesn't require or expect the listener to learn vocabulary. In fact we're explicitly told that it's okay to forget. If a piece of vocab or a rule is needed later, we'll be reminded. However, I found that the vocab has stuck with me mostly.

    There seems to be a determined refusal to use gramatical terms, no explict conjugation, no lists of words to learn. Each lesson builds on earlier ones. New words are introduced as we might need them. We're taught how to construct sentences in a fairly natural way.

    It's a fairly short course. After part 1 I do have the ability to construct fairly complex sentences. "I can't come because it isn't practical" "I have seen it. It is fantastic". "Can you reserve a room, because I can't do it", and I realise the odd word of German I've picked up over time can be added to these sentences. I do find the repetition gets a little tiresome at times. Not jsut of the vocaubulary but of the way to structure a sentence, and how to use the course. The pace is a little slower than I'd like but nothing too serious, and obviously it's better to go too slow than too fast.I have certainly enjoyed this and feel a certain confidence speaking the language, even if what I can say is limited.

    Am looking forward to sections 2 and 3.

    "Der Erste Programme"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Jawohl sehr bestimmt,! Yes most definitely)! Sie haben diese lesen nicht hart gemacht!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Paul Noble he has structured this course into easily learnt stages with excellent recapitulation. The programme is quite easy to follow and anyone who wishes to learn German should have no difficulty in following the various stages


    Have you listened to any of Paul Noble’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No. But this first stage has impressed me considerably and I will most definitely follow the entire course through it's complete set of stages.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The presentation of stage one was structured so as to make the the subject matter easy to assimilate. The method in which the course is presented and the various phrases are demonnstrated by a German lady speaker are most impressive. I am also very impressed with the manual which accompanies the course


    Any additional comments?

    I am 78 years of age and learnt basic German whilst at school 1948/49, I also spent 18 months of my National Service in Germany (Krefeld and Wilhelmshaven) in 1954/55,However this Course is giving me a better understanding of the German language and it's practical application despite my age. Vielen Danke oder Viele Danken.

    "Friendly and approachable"

    I have tried the Michael Thomas course and, while it was good I found the school teacher style and the way he has to correct the 'students' got to me after a while. Paul's uses a similar approach, but with the German spoken by a native speaker, so it was calmer and more relaxed.
