Product Description

Review

First released onto the market 2 years ago, Paul’s French, Spanish and Italian courses have met with huge success:

Review of Paul Noble Method by The City Magazine:
“Relaxing and listening to the CDs, I found that I seemed to absorb the phrases taught, without even consciously trying, and quickly felt confident enough to play around with the different components and make my own sentences.”

Reviews by Amazon customers:
“This is the most remarkable language course imaginable. I've tried several courses but this is on another planet. It is amazing!!!”
“Paul Noble has a very relaxing and informal style to his teaching… I can already tell that my spoken French has improved permanently.”
“At last, an easy way to learn a language! Easy to understand plus an easy one to pop into the car CD player and use on the move, so no more 'I haven't the time…’”
“The language is explained in a simple way and the teacher doesn't use complex grammar terms… For me, though, the absolute best thing about it is that it has allowed me to speak in full, proper sentences in French… A fantastic course and a well deserved 5 stars!”
“I am pleased to report that this is really good fun to use because as you listen you are encouraged to CREATE VOCABULARY AND PHRASES FOR YOURSELF out of the bits of structure that you are picking up. Not only is it a completely non-threatening process but it is also entertaining in itself.”
“For those who love languages but struggle to learn them this is a wonderful resource.“

About the Author

Who is Paul Noble?
Paul Noble is a genius, yet he still left school unable to speak a language – he found that the traditional learning methods left him feeling ‘confused, incapable and unable to really say anything’. Determined that there must be a better way to learn, Paul spent years devising his own unique method of learning languages which cuts out all of the grammar, all of the rote learning, and all of the stress. He began using his method to teach in his Language Institute and, hundreds of students later, he prides himself on never having had a student fail.

Hopefully this review will be useful to someone as I thought it might be worthwhile comparing this course to Michel Thomas' 'Total German' set of CDs also available on Amazon.

If you're like me with no German knowledge and looking to learn the basics quickly these are both sets of 10 (or 12) CDs that are designed to get you up and running (or at least walking) in a reasonably quick time. Both these sets cost about £50 and are based on the student friendly idea that learning shouldn't be painful or forced, but given logical a logical structure and interactive methodology you can pick up the verbal language reasonably quickly.

One of the main differences is that the Michel Thomas approach is set in a 'classroom' where the teacher talks through concepts with the students and listens to their efforts, as you're likely to repeat listening to the CDs often this can get tedious. With Paul Nobel approach the fourth wall is broken and he talks to you directly, the German speaking is done by a German 'actor', this actually makes for a greater clarity and more confidence that the accent is correct. One issue though is that MT clearly states the pronunciation or each word, how it is built up, shape of mouth and tongue when saying it and often what English words sound like it, with PN you have to listen very carefully to pick up the correct working and can be confused between 'b' and 'v's etc. For example how exactly you say I 'ich' (is it 'ick' 'ish' icksh' etc.) is covered much more clearly with MT.

One of the big issues I have with MT though is that an awful lot of material is covered very quickly, this means for a slow person like me, lots of repeats of the CDs.

I studied German at School many years ago and only managed to scrape a D Grade at GCSE. I wanted to re-learn some German whilst I was driving and out walking. I found the method very good and I have learnt some German phrases I did not learn in 5 years of studying at School.

I think this would make an excellent purchase for a child who may be learning German when they progress to Secondary School. This course would give them an enormous advantage in speaking German when they first start their German classes.

This CD course makes it easier to learn German and is the only course so far that has helped me to progress. You will definitely progress more in 12 hours listening to the CDs than trying to learn through other self help courses and weeks of expensive classes.
I divided my learning sessions into 30 minutes per day. Paul Noble repeats the words and sentences (many times) and has a German speaker repeating the words as well. I found the repeated words and sentences just naturally sank into my memory, but I actively had to speak and think during the course. Try and relax as much as possible while listening to the CDs and it will work for you. There are plenty pauses or silent sections to give you a chance to pronounce the words and to think out the sentences (which is what you will have to do in real life in any case). This course gives you the knowledge to build German sentences and holiday related sentences are also included. You won't be fluent in German after completing the CDs, but you will be able to speak with confidence. Future and past tense are also covered. I wish the Paul Noble Institute can design a further vocabulary course to supplement this course. I am more of a visual learner, so I didn't initially think this course was going to work for me and I was very sceptical initially, but I was incredibly surprised on how well it worked. I highly recommend this course!

This is my 4th language course from Paul Noble. One of my big regrets in life is that I did not study a foreign language to O Grade (in Scotland at that time). So a few years ago I decided to change that. Now, I try to learn the language when I have an opportunity to visit that country. And Paul noble's courses let me get that grounding like no other CD I have tried. I wish he had more languages since this is the final one! (that I know of). The methodology he uses really does give you a change to let the words and grammer sink in. I do most of my listening in the car, sometimes I may have to listen to a track or CD twice, but I get it eventually. Excellent series of CDs, well worth it.

It's a good course, but still need to be refined and avoid to repeat all the time some words like "baby" (after the 50th time you hear that word across several lessons you start to hate it). There are many possibilities to present the neutral article "das" besides with the "baby" word!. Here you will learn very few words, but smartly combined to grab the basic structure of sentences and tenses plus the right pronunciation, and these tips, if one pursue this course after having some experience with another beginner's course will provide the framework to be able to continue with more advanced courses.
