Great !!

I really loved learning German from Central Park. It's a jump-start, no-nonsense way to learn German. Rather than bogging down in verb conjugation like many formal language classes, Central Park starts with the basics. "Ich, Ich kann, Ich kann beginnen." You learn how to say basic things about yourself, order food and drink, get a hotel room, and find directions. Central Park also does a great job of comparing English words with German words, and explaining how German grammar is more similar to King James English grammar than modern English grammar. I have two complaints about this book though: First, you never learn spelling. Speaking German one thing, but as soon as you start to read it, you realize you have mostly no idea to spell anything you just learned. Second, I had a very hard time catching the differences between many similar-sounding words. Central Park and the German lady both used dynamic microphones, so they didn't get the crystal-clear dictation from a condenser microphone, which is critical to people learning a new language. That also added to my spelling frustrations. It was hard to parse when to use den mann vs dem mann, because they sounded exactly the same through the recording. Also trying to learn "excuse me" was a mess - I left thinking "enshoilitten zie? emshoiligen zie?" when the correct word is "entschuldigen sie." I also didn't get a great lesson from the numbers and alphabet, but I've since learned them from children's YouTube videos. EDIT: This book now comes with an accompanying PDF to teach you how to spell. Great!

Easy to learn. Love this program.

I thought this book was so easy to follow. My only complaint is that the pauses weren't long enough. I had to slow the speed way down so I didn't have to pause it ever few seconds. Even that didn't help sometimes. What I love most about this book is the way the author explains the connection among German, English, and French. Breaking down the origin of the words and the sound shifts not only made the course super interesting, but it also made the lessons easier to remember. The author intentionally avoids grammatical terms, but as an English teacher, I loved his logical explanations of word function and syntax so much that I will borrow some of his methods in my own language instruction. By asking the listener questions, the author gives the learner a chance to think something through in a way that solidifies the new concepts. The native speaker helped me to correct some of my mispronunciations of the simple phrases and words that I had already picked up. But with that said, I think this course is also perfect for someone with absolutely no German language acquisition.

Easy to learn. Love this program.

I enjoyed the course. I would have liked a visual part, but this is audible. I thought this book was so easy to follow. My only complaint is that the pauses weren't long enough. I had to slow the speed way down so I didn't have to pause it ever few seconds. Even that didn't help sometimes. During the review at the end, I did have to pause it after he said the English every time because there were no pauses for me to say it in German. Overall, I enjoyed it and I will be getting the second book.

The pdf file is full of mistakes

I have only listened and read the first 2 stories so far but I am shocked by the number of mistakes in the accompanying pdf file. Now I cannot trust the contents at all which is truly sad. I will give just 2 examples: Schinken means ham, not jam. And Kunst means art, not science.

A very good concept but someone should have error checked the end product.

Great, easy to follow course.

It was a really easy to follow course. Gives a good introduction with minimal effort to remember. You don't really get a big vocabulary but more of a sense of how to use the language, the order of the words and such. I enjoyed the stories albeit my daughter was making up her own stories to match the. Thanks.

Great, easy to follow course.

This audiobook is super informative. It was a really easy to follow course. Gives a good introduction with minimal effort to remember. You don't really get a big vocabulary but more of a sense of how to use the language, the order of the words and such. This book is amazing. I am moving to Germany soon and was struggling with learning German grammar. This book helped me understand so much about German grammar! I’m definitely going to buy the intermediate level book soon and then might try some of Paul’s other books. My only critique is that I wish he would spell out what some of the words are, because it’s sometimes difficult to clearly understand to German woman is saying. I also really wish that they had properly taught us the alphabet and numbers... instead there’s just a random part at the end of the book where Paul says the German alphabet and numbers and just expects you to keep rewinding that part of the book to learn them. To me, this part made no sense because Paul stated at the beginning of the book that this type of learning doesn’t work, and yet, that’s exactly what he did with the numbers and alphabet. It’s like he got lazy about teaching that part. Either way, this book is so helpful and is definitely worth listening to.

I am very happy that this method is NOT a gimmick!

There is honest work, thought, effort put in to putting together an approach that really works. This method is a great example of how a well thought out approach, a fresh way of looking at something can be revolutionary in successfully accomplishing what once seemed impossible to do. BRAVO! Paul Noble, BRAVO!

Excellent for entry level students

This course starts with the very bare basics and assumes you know little to no German thus far. That being said, it does a good job of enforcing the basics such as gender and sentence structure. The narrator has a native speaker do all the German speaking and pronunciation, so you know how it sounds naturally. It also contains periodic scenario chapters, where you go through basic dialogues that you could expect when visiting a German speaking country. However, don't expect to learn anything too detailed or complex. This course is bare bones, and it focuses immensely on grammar rather than vocabulary. It's a great foundation, but I don't recommend it as your only means of learning German.

Lost opportunity

Why on EARTH would you have such a long vocabulary list without adding the gender? Anyone knows who teaches German that it is really best (especially for native English speakers who may not have a strong grasp of the very idea of gendered nouns or even realise this at all) to learn a noun with its associated gender "der" "die" or "das". Terrible omission.

Although I wasn't able to understand every single

Although I wasn't able to understand every single word, I was stunned at how much I actually did pick up on. I credit the narrator for taking a seemingly boring educational task and making it fun!

Well done..!!

The outer space stories were the most exciting for me. It was like I was a little again while learning without a care in the world. Some good life lessons mixed in with some German comprehension.

Useful vocabulary, although at times the German narrator spoke comparatively fast for beginners. Otherwise quite helpful!

I loved this audio-book!

I enjoyed it and feel like I learnt a lot in a short time frame. It's certainly the fastest paced language audio book I've come across so far.
