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 1 of the course covers:

Language ground rules
Asking questions
Introduction to verbs

At the hotel, a native-speaking German expert helps Paul to deliver the course and to perfect your pronunciation. No complicated grammatical explanations, no rote memorisation, 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.

You only need number1

What did you love best about Learn German with Paul Noble, Part 1?

This series is awesome. Paul Noble rocks at teaching n00bs like myself. By the end of this, you will be amazed at how much you can understand and say. HIGHLY recommend. <br/><br/>BUT BE WARNED! You only need this one. DO NOT WASTE money on the other 3, becuase they are just the first one broken into three parts. They are the exact same so save your money and only buy number 1!

Any additional comments?

AWESOME! Sehr Gut!

The most essential tool for learning.

While I have completed a good 30 or so hours of Rosetta Stone and am deep in the level two area, I still haven't the foggiest on grammar or how to string a series of words together to form a sentence. While it is true I can point at a picture of a green apple and tell you what it is in German, I wasn't able to say, can I have a green apple and so on. Sure I had a step up going into this as a knew a great deal of words I still had no idea how they worked. Paul Noble uses a simple approach that I practice while I run and walk around in my day and for the first time, I can actually speak German. Can I move there today and fit right in. No, but can I say simple sentences that I couldn't before. Yes. Have I been able to form sentences when I wanted to answer someone. Yes. So, overall, to me, there is not a better learning solution than this.

This waa a brilliant re- introduction and encouraging course for me as I try to get my o level german....finished some 35 years ago . ...back into some semblance of usefulness. He is, perhaps, a little patronizing to his listeners but if you can smile through
that, I do feel it is a very helpful tool

Excellent Resource.

Where does Learn German with Paul Noble, Part 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Only tried this one audiobook, but i have a wealth of other German resources and nothing has helped the German language stick like this.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)


What does Paul Noble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He has a really soothing voice and sounds inviting into the language.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


Any additional comments?

This is the way to learn grammar for anyone who's tried and failed before using different methods. Not a single grammatical term outside of 'verb' is used yet somehow the implicit use of grammar helps you memorise it. I don't know how it works, but it does. After listening for two days i'm easily constructing basic sentences. Yes - BASIC sentences. Don't buy this thinking it will make you fluent, but it will give you a solid grounding which you can add upon later. It does this by adding pieces onto what you've already learned and through a lot of good repetition.<br/><br/>Excellent product, and at the price you can't grumble.

Very Refreshing

Instruction seems to be based around the idea that we learn best through having existing concepts with which to attach new information to, and that repetition is necessary for memory retention.

Very easy to follow. Absolutely loved it!

A wondeful method of teaching German to English speakers. Getting more confident to press on. Thanks a lot.
