Awesome set..... 13 Nov. 2010
By K. Roth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love this set by Living Language. The book is detailed & compact, but not so small it's not handy. There are useful conversations which are much longer than conversations on other CD's. Vocab words are repeated one by one in each chapter with room to repeat. Lots of sections with Dutch sentences, and then a review & test yourself at the end of each chapter. I love that only the Dutch is on the CD's, so I can listen over & over again, soak it into my brain. It's just very efficient. The last 3 CD's are the conversations with room to repeat after the speaker. If you want a set that's geared toward travelers, this isn't it. If you really want to learn Dutch, this is a great way to start! Lessons: Good morning, Say hi to your family for me, Welcome to my home, A regular day, At school, On the road again, who's calling, buying and selling, In the restaurant,Oh, doctor!,Computers and the internet,At the post office, At work, Leisure time, Sports and the outdoors.

Great course ... and I have a few recommendations ... 18 Dec. 2012
By Jamais sans mon minou - Published on Amazon.com
Living Language «Spoken World Dutch» is a truly excellent introduction to the Dutch language and it is offered at a very reasonable price. Like all similar methods, it assumes that the student is an intelligent, highly motivated, adult who wants to learn the language on his/her own. The self-study package is very well designed, but you'll have to put in a lot of work! All of the lessons follow a standard pattern: presentation of a dialogue, new vocabulary, an extensive discussion of grammar, plus notes on culture. The lessons present common situations that a traveller would encounter: meeting people, introductions, hotel reservations, dining in a restaurant, etcetera. Two sets of CDs accompany the textbook: Set A follows the text fairly closely, while Set B presents the dialogue once again and provides supplementary exercises based on the vocabulary and grammar. Here are my recommendations for use:

Recommendation 1: To maximize your use of the audio recordings, I suggest that you convert them to MP3 files (or some other audio file) and then STRING the TWO SETS of recordings together BY LESSON NUMBER. The objective is to have the supplementary exercises follow the primary material directly. I would imagine that many multi-media players permit this directly on the device. My approach, which took me a few hours, was to change the converted mp3 file names from "Track01, Track02, etcetera" to "Lesson 01_Set A_Track01, etcetera" and Lesson 01_Set B_Track01, etcetera" and then I combined all of the files into one folder. Attention: do not regroup the files into a common folder before having renamed them; otherwise, they will sort as "Track01, Track01, Track01".

Recommendation 2: I know you're going to hate this ... try to MEMORIZE the dialogues and use flash cards to memorize key vocabulary items and phrases. It's painfully dull, but it helps!

Outstanding / Uitstekkend! 6 Nov. 2011
By lilybart - Published on Amazon.com
I have tried out many Dutch kits (as I am speaking here of the 2009 "A Complete Course for Beginners" Coursebook & 6 Audio CDs) and this one really offers something great.

With the 6 CDs (half of them are no-book review, so you get independent practise, with the correct answer spoken after a pause), the narrators seem very "patient", spending a lot of time going over verb forms, adjectives, prepositions, and the dialogues, example sentences in the book, and pronunciation.

There are cultural notes, written exercises, independent study suggestions, and really detailed grammar explanations.

Keep in mind that I am not a true beginner: I got a foundation for repetitive pronunciation and basic phrases from Plimseur, and then went through the Teach-Yourself guides to build on that, and many others. I am thrilled that the Living Language folks can explain things simply and offer so much in one system.

For a one-stop shop, this is a great kit.
Veel succes!

Great for learning Dutch 1 April 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had borrowed this from the local public library prior to purchasing and found it to be helpful. I pair it with the book, "Say in Right In Dutch" which offers an easy pronounced language system. I am hoping that I will be able to speak Dutch for our next trip to the Netherlands.

Love! 11 Mar. 2014
By Rachel Potter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love this method for learning a language. It's the exact balance I need of book study, and opportunity to review on my commute. I also appreciate that it is focused on actually learning the language, instead of just learning key phrases to get by.
