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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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!
I recommend this purchase or any other languages that Paul Noble is involved with.
For what it does teach it's very effective and Paul's voice is very soothing but it really needs expanding to be worth the price tag.

I am loving this course as much as the Pimsleur method. It is very similar. I think it is slightly better, in my opinion, because I am an English woman. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Catherine Innes

Always a fan of Paul Noble's Series. Wish he did Chinese version. The only thing I did not like about German series is the female narrative's accent.Published 18 months ago by bon kyu ku
