Description

Includes 16 lessons on 8 CDs

Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program.

This course includes Lessons 1-16 from the Dutch Level 1 Program - 8 hours of audio-only effective language learning with real-life spoken practice sessions. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons is included in each lesson. Topics include: greetings, numbers, meals, shopping, telling time, scheduling activities, and asking and giving directions. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Dutch.

Reading instruction begins in Lesson 11 to provide you with an introduction to reading Dutch. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with Dutch pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet is available for download.

The Dutch Language
Dutch is the official language of the Netherlands and is one of three official languages in Belgium, where it is called Flemish. Pimsleur's Dutch teaches Standard Dutch, or "Newsreader Dutch," which is the dialect most widely spoken in the Netherlands.

      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.
