    "Do not buy if you own part 1!"

    After the highly satisfying part 1, I am really disappointed to discover this part 2 contains no new material. If I was looking to review, I would have listened to part 1 again, not bought a new one. I will be asking for my money back, and will not continue this series. This is highly dishonest, even fraudulent publishing, as I'm almost sure that at least a part of this audio is the exact same recording as part 1. Shame on you!

    "95% duplicated content with part I"
    Would you try another book from Paul Noble and/or Paul Noble?

    Perhaps


    Has Learn German with Paul Noble, Part 2 turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about Paul Noble’s performance did you like?

    The performance is very good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very disappointed because I had high expectations after the first part of his course, which was genuinely helpful. The second part had me disappointed every single time I picked it up as it was just repeating the same content from part I. Literally the exact same parts just in different order.

    "nearly identical to part one."

    Let me begin by saying that Paul Noble's course is fantastic. I still really enjoyed the teaching process he delved into in part 1. To my dismay, part 2 covers the exact same vocabulary and grammar as part 1. It seems to be the same information in a slightly more compressed format. I just don't really see the point of book two when no new information is presented.

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

    "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.

    "no need for part 2. Part 1 is a must however."

    i feel the first book covers all the same information and much more. this book was not bad just unnecessary because book 1 does such a great job of teaching german.

    "Soooooo Disappointed!!! :("

    I was super excited to start on Part 2 after finishing Part 1 thinking it would be just as good! Wrong! It's just a review of Part 1! Not one single new thing! Like I can give directions to the tourist information in my sleep now! Come on Paul Noble...this was a waste of time and I'm so disappointed! I hope Part 3 is better. If it isn't I'm not going to waste my time on Part 4. If you have Part 1... Seriously don't waste your time. There is nothing new... Not a new word or grammar rule or anything.

    "this helped with the issues"

    probably not worth the money, as reviewing part one could have fixed my problems. I suppose if you were going as a tourist it might be of use... still it came in useful in clearing up the usage.

    "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'

    "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.

    "Repeat of part one"

    It's true. The content is a repeat of part one, but with less covered. I can't even say I found it a useful recap, as it skips tenses. Just get part one.

    "repeat of first book"

    Having been very impressed with the first book I'm left feeling very disappointed and cheated with book 2, there was very little vocabulary expansion. Most of the conversations were repeats from book 1 or sentences told in a slightly different way. Just replay book one instead of buying this.

    "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.
