Do not buy if you own part 1!

After the highly satisfying part 1, I am really disappointed to discover this part 2 contains no new material. If I was looking to review, I would have listened to part 1 again, not bought a new one. I will be asking for my money back, and will not continue this series. This is highly dishonest, even fraudulent publishing, as I'm almost sure that at least a part of this audio is the exact same recording as part 1. Shame on you!

nearly identical to part one.

Let me begin by saying that Paul Noble's course is fantastic. I still really enjoyed the teaching process he delved into in part 1. To my dismay, part 2 covers the exact same vocabulary and grammar as part 1. It seems to be the same information in a slightly more compressed format. I just don't really see the point of book two when no new information is presented.

Nothing new compared to part one

Would you try another book written by Paul Noble or narrated by Paul Noble?

I would be nervous of purchasing any more from Paul Noble unless I could establish that I was going to learn something new.

Would you ever listen to anything by Paul Noble again?

His teaching method is sound, if a tad basic and slow. I have polished up my French and started German from scratch with him. You do need to top up with learning vocab from other sources, however. But he does explain basic grammar well.

What about Paul Noble’s performance did you like?

Unlike other language courses, he doesn't overwhelm you with 20 news words a minute, 98% of which you are likely to forget.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really, no. Part one was excellent, but this is a big disappointment.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money on this - there is absolutely nothing in it that isn't covered in his part one of learning German, in fact part one will take you further. I listened to the entire book thinking "yes, yes, we've done all this, bring on the new stuff" but it just never came.... this would be better entitled 'Paul Noble Revision book to Part One'

If you have part 1, don't buy part 2

Would you try another book written by Paul Noble or narrated by Paul Noble?

I am going to return this book for a refund, if I can. I enjoyed Part 1 and thought Part 2 will pick it up where Part 1 left it, but to my surprise Part 2's material repeats Part 1, but plays it in less time. So I really wonder, why someone needs to pay more money to buy Part 2 (which costs more than Part 1) to hear exactly same material? Description of the book says nothing about material's 100% overlap with Part 1 book. I think description should say so that to avoid deception and false expectations.

What was most disappointing about Paul Noble’s story?

Part 2's material repeats Part 1, so I really wonder, why someone needs to Part 2 if he/she already owns Part 1? And why it is called Part 2, if it doesn't continue to build on knowledge obtained in Part 1? Description of the book says nothing about material's 100% overlap with Part 1 book. I think description should say so that to avoid deception and false expectations.

How could the performance have been better?

If the Book is called Part 2, it should teach more advanced material than Part 1. Paul Noble published 4 parts for German language course, but after my negative experience with Part 2, I am not going to buy Part 3 because I am afraid there will be nothing new there. I would expect more from Part 2 and Part 3, particularly more new words and more advanced material, more complex sentences. I think the Paul's method is good, but he should not stop at the very basics and take his method to more advanced students.
