5.0 out of 5 stars Good things come in small packages.
Dutch grammar in 90 pages ? Well, Stern sticks to the important things you need to know about Dutch grammar and hardly wastes a word along the way. Word order, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, all the important things are explained here. If you ever get to the level where you need something with more depth you'll be speaking excellent Dutch. Why buy a big book that you might...

3.0 out of 5 stars Too small lettering on Kindle version!
I have the hard copy of this book and found it simple, helpful and informative when it came to dealing with the the details of Dutch grammar, giving nice and clear examples. That would have been 5 stars. I do not like the Kindle edition as much as many of the examples given are in very small lettering which the Kindle doesn't enlarge and it puts me off from using it. So,...

This review is from: Essential Dutch Grammar (Dover Language Guides Essential Grammar) (Paperback)
Dutch grammar in 90 pages ? Well, Stern sticks to the important things you need to know about Dutch grammar and hardly wastes a word along the way. Word order, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, all the important things are explained here. If you ever get to the level where you need something with more depth you'll be speaking excellent Dutch. Why buy a big book that you might never need when there's this little gem at a bargain price ? Another plus, if you are like me and have only a fuzzy recollection of all those grammatical buzzwords, there's an appendix to explain them and give plenty of examples. Lastly, since it's a grammar and is likely to come in for lots of thumbing backwards and forwards, it's just as well that it's printed on tough paper and solidly bound. If only it was as easy to find as good a dictionary !

Great for beginners, clear and concise explanations of the grammar rules. However a more comprehensive text may be needed for intermediate or advanced level

This book is a valuable aid to anyone learning Dutch. Most aspects of Dutch grammar are explained in a manner that is easy to follow, from spelling and pronunciation to vocabulary building. It is also a useful work of reference for the more advanced student.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to school with Dutch, 4 Jan 2012

This review is from: Essential Dutch Grammar (Dover Language Guides Essential Grammar) (Paperback)
Have decided to put more effort into learning Dutch than I have in the past. Am using Michel Thomas course which ostensibly doesn't need me to do "homework" but this little book is a help none the less.

Another book bought for my son. It was his choice and obviously of use to him or he would have said by now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and concise, 31 May 2012

This review is from: Essential Dutch Grammar (Dover Language Guides Essential Grammar) (Paperback)
Exactly what the title says, this book has the basic grammar that you really need to know explained briefly and very understandably, without confusing you with details that a beginner probably isn't going to need anyway.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too small lettering on Kindle version!, 16 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have the hard copy of this book and found it simple, helpful and informative when it came to dealing with the the details of Dutch grammar, giving nice and clear examples. That would have been 5 stars. I do not like the Kindle edition as much as many of the examples given are in very small lettering which the Kindle doesn't enlarge and it puts me off from using it. So, the book is good, but the formatting of the ebook really needs to be thought out.

4.0 out of 5 stars does what it says. but not for the faint hearted!, 19 Jun 2004
This review is from: Essential Dutch Grammar (Dover Language Guides Essential Grammar) (Paperback)
OK so this books does exactly what it says....and no more. It's rather like reading a car manual: It tells you how the engine works but doesn't teach you drive. It's not going to help you learn dutch but it might explain why Dutch is like it is. Take a Dutch course at the same time.
