    "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 review?"

    Most of this is a review of German I. I expected more new stuff and without the prompting. Moving on to the next.

    "For Real Beginners"

    This is good for beginners or slow learners. The repetitive style for the limited vocabulary is good but can only go so far. The explanations for the grammar points tend to be repetitious, which is good if one forgets why the structure is so, or if one hasn't listened after an long time. Overall, it gets tedious hearing the same phrases over and over again.

    If you're going on a long trip but also really want to learn German, listening to these tapes makes the drive just slip by.

    "Don't buy this one if you have part one..."
    Any additional comments?

    Part 2 of this series is completely contained within part one, so I am not sure what the marketing strategy is here. I think it should be explained how to order the audiobooks so that you are not paying for the same thing twice...duh!

    I am new to German and found that Part 1 is an excellent start.

    "Nothing new compared to part one"
    Would you try another book written by Paul Noble or narrated by Paul Noble?

    I would be nervous of purchasing any more from Paul Noble unless I could establish that I was going to learn something new.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Paul Noble again?

    His teaching method is sound, if a tad basic and slow. I have polished up my French and started German from scratch with him. You do need to top up with learning vocab from other sources, however. But he does explain basic grammar well.


    What about Paul Noble’s performance did you like?

    Unlike other language courses, he doesn't overwhelm you with 20 news words a minute, 98% of which you are likely to forget.


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

    Not really, no. Part one was excellent, but this is a big disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your money on this - there is absolutely nothing in it that isn't covered in his part one of learning German, in fact part one will take you further. I listened to the entire book thinking "yes, yes, we've done all this, bring on the new stuff" but it just never came.... this would be better entitled 'Paul Noble Revision book to Part One'

    Story
    "If you have part 1, don't buy part 2"
    Would you try another book written by Paul Noble or narrated by Paul Noble?

    I am going to return this book for a refund, if I can. I enjoyed Part 1 and thought Part 2 will pick it up where Part 1 left it, but to my surprise Part 2's material repeats Part 1, but plays it in less time. So I really wonder, why someone needs to pay more money to buy Part 2 (which costs more than Part 1) to hear exactly same material? Description of the book says nothing about material's 100% overlap with Part 1 book. I think description should say so that to avoid deception and false expectations.


    What was most disappointing about Paul Noble’s story?

    Part 2's material repeats Part 1, so I really wonder, why someone needs to Part 2 if he/she already owns Part 1? And why it is called Part 2, if it doesn't continue to build on knowledge obtained in Part 1? Description of the book says nothing about material's 100% overlap with Part 1 book. I think description should say so that to avoid deception and false expectations.


    How could the performance have been better?

    If the Book is called Part 2, it should teach more advanced material than Part 1. Paul Noble published 4 parts for German language course, but after my negative experience with Part 2, I am not going to buy Part 3 because I am afraid there will be nothing new there. I would expect more from Part 2 and Part 3, particularly more new words and more advanced material, more complex sentences. I think the Paul's method is good, but he should not stop at the very basics and take his method to more advanced students.

    "this is just a copy of part one!"
    What could Paul Noble have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This so called part 2 was more or less a copy of part 1, I haven't learnt anything new in part 2. If it was a revision of part 1 in a more challenging way using more sentences to repeat that would be perfect but it was just the same parts(probably cut and pasted) with introductions, not revision but introduction of things which I heard already in part 1.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Learn German with Paul Noble, Part 2?

    the scenes with introductions of something as if it was introduced for the first time, it should be just mentioned and revised more and more practice for a learner to speak ;instead you hear the same explanation from part 1

    "rather disappointing"

    A tad misleading calling it part two. Nothing new or different here than from part one. I had hoped it would move me on but was actually nothing more than a recap which would have been totally fine if it had been advertised as such.
