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.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
