  • Essential grammar and vocabulary. Topics include: greetings, numbers, meals, shopping, telling time, scheduling activities, and asking and giving directions.
  • No mindless repetition! Converse with native speakers in natural (and useful!) conversations.
  • Easy, fast, fun and effective language acquisition.

Comments about Dutch, Conversational:

I use the CDs to and from work every day, about 40 minutes each way. I'm in the military and I took a placement test, after 2 months of studying I tested at a basic qualifying rate which was awesome for me. There is lots of review material lesson to lesson. I normally listen to the same lesson twice a day and can move on to the next lesson the next day.

Comments about Dutch, Conversational:

I've lived in Holland for a few years now and this course is really helping me to refine my conversational skills.

I was using another corse, Babble.com, and it was a complete waste of time and money. Their conversations consisted of swimming, making pancakes, buying sour plums and going shopping with my aunt. 100% unhelpful!!!

Comments about Dutch, Conversational:

I knew no Dutch when I began. Not even hello. This is definitely the best program for someone like me. I learn in my car on the way to and from work. That's it, and it is definitely working. I already know a lot of phrases after only 4 weeks.
