Publisher's Summary

Paul Noble is a genius with a higher IQ than Einstein. Despite this, he still struggled with language learning at school. He found himself feeling "confused, incapable, and unable to really say anything". As a result of his negative early experiences, Paul has come up with a groundbreaking new method of language teaching that removes the need for months of study. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.

Part 3 of the course covers:

  • Taking a train
  • Time phrases
  • The past tense
  • A brief encounter

A native-speaking German expert helps Paul to deliver the course and to perfect your pronunciation. No complicated grammatical explanations, no writing - no stress. Learn over 6,000 words in no time at all and - most importantly - learn how to make your new vocabulary work for you. A downloadable booklet is also included to use as a reference and revision tool.

Learn German with Paul Noble combines an exciting, new, nontraditional approach to language learning with the easy, relaxed appeal of an audio-only product. No books. No rote memorisation. No chance of failure.

Fraud. DONT but this if you have heard part 1

Part 1 was great, part 2 and 3 is a direct copy.

I was extremely happy with part one, and was excited to continue the course. I read in the review that part 2 was much the same, but part 3 was better. I can inform that part 3 is an EXACT copy from last part of part 1, there is no new material. Very unhappy with this, and will ask for my money back.

Do not purchase if you own part 1.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

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.

Noble's courses are great but caveat emptor

As someone else mentioned, most, if not all, of this material comes in the first Learn German Audible book.

a continuation of a good start

the Paul Noble set of 3 is a good start to develop some practical vocabulary and an initial sense of grammatical structures I feel that this is giving me an initial Foundation to move on two more intensive study of the German language

more useful than book too

if I was going to suggest Paul Noble's work I would tell them to skip book two for this book as you actually get more out of book three though I would have liked more grammar, it did get there to near the end of the recording.

Keep up!

Any additional comments?

This one starts to go a little faster. They could have waited a little longer when asking you to say compound sentences, but the repetition is good.

Brilliant technique

This is a great way to hammer in the most central parts of German grammar into your head. It is all about repetition, and as such all the reviews complaining about repetition sort of miss the point. I wish there was more of these, since there are some common parts of German grammar that is not taught here, most notably genetive case, “ihr” and verbs that split. Still, this was very useful to me.

Noble used his high IQ to create this scam?

I could not resist with the header here, but it is probably Collins Publisher rather than Noble. This is either a scam or a gross oversight. Either way Part 2 and 3 should be removed because, as everyone else says, they were just copied audio from Part 1. In the final lightning round for Part 3 you can predict the next questions from memory. For example: 5 euro... 5 euro pro Person... 5 euro pro Person pro Nacht.

How is the publisher getting away with this?

Same words and concepts as part one

Was really hoping for more advanced training. Could have just replayed part one.

I really do not understand why part two and part three exist other than an additional revenue stream for the author.

  • Overall

exact same book as the second half of book 1

feeling quite ripped off after listening to identical content in part 1, and want my money back.

Not that much more new learning after part 1

Good, but I skipped part 2 and didn't learn a lot more in part 3.

More of the same

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If you liked the other 2 and want more than get this. I did. Other reviewers have said there is not much new/extra in this - I found that to be true - but, there is unfortunately a certain degree of repetition required in the process of learning a language.

What three words best describe Paul Noble’s voice?

Paul's voice is clear and relaxed - the books also feature the voice of a German woman with a clear German voice.

Any additional comments?

I am learning German using a classroom course and other methods - audiobooks - websites and you tube. I will be reviewing other audiobooks for learning German that I use and that are recommended to me. Paul's is a serious practical learning tool there is also some fun stuff out there for you once you have learned the basics with tools like his.

It was a good review, but yet again, part three is just the last few hours of part one.
