I have a number of Dutch beginner courses. This one I like because you can listen to the conversations and follow the transcripts to get to grips with the pronunciation. There are sections covering grammar and useful phrases.

Maybe I've given up too soon (1 hour per day for 3 days) but I found some of the phrases were read much too quickly for me to grasp the correct pronunciation, and the conversations followed a similar pattern. I appreciate that they're trying to replicate an actual conversation spoken at a normal speed but I thought it was much too fast for an absolute beginner.
My other negative was the length of the first conversation and the introduction of so many words. Personally I found it overwhelming!
That said, the level of detail in the book is impressive and I'm sure if you stuck with it you would have an excellent grasp of the Dutch language.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a really good dutch guide 6 April 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a really good dutch guide. Easy to follow, nice build up of language. Well planned and thought out with good grammatical guidance. Cleverly done. One of the cultural notes made me laugh though. Sole credit of influence for the Declaration of Independence in the US was given to the dutch written Plakket van Verlatinge and no mention whatsoever of the English written of the Magna Carta upon which modern day democracy is based and upon which the Constitution was formed and which the Plakket itself is based.hmmm.
