Paul Noble left school unable to speak a language - having 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 that cuts out all the grammar, all the memorisation and all the stress. He began using his method to teach in his Language Institute, and thousands of students later, he prides himself on never having had a student fail.

Decent walk-through, but lacking key ingredient

This oral Japanese practice is pretty decent at guiding one along step by step from my perspective, but then there was no new information that really challenged me. I consider myself an intermediate level Japanese learner. it seems like this was high beginning level... maybe low intermediate.

My real gripe though is that there is no Japanese- Japanese practice. Ideally there would be conversation with the audio speaking Japanese and the learner answering in Japanese, but this is not present. There are scenarios where one replies in Japanese to a conversation, but the conversation prompt from the partner is given in English. I think the audiobook would be vastly improved by having a Japanese-Japanese section.

Although I am happy with the extra listening and speaking practice this book gave me, overall I am disappointed because I was expecting a bit higher level as well as being able to respond to Japanese conversation prompts.

Excellent continuation course

This course follows the other Paul Noble Japanese course, which I recommend for anyone learning Japanese. The format in this course is the exact same. You learn some more words and different ways to express ideas. This is honestly one of the best auditory language learning programs I've ever used, especially for it's price. It's very affordable and very effective - especially if you don't know any Japanese at all.

Obviously, if you're an advanced speaker you may not get as much use out if this course. I myself am above beginner and still below intermediate, but I did still learn enough to justify listening to this the whole way through.

Definitely check it out if you've already done the first part. Enjoy!

Great but

This is a great way to practice speaking and does awsome job following up the first book, but in chapter 44 this a part where he will have you say a sentence that he doesn't teach you until about 3 minutes later. I've only seen this once but it's still a great listen.
