This book actually does something with your knowledge acquired in the first book of the series.
The best points are that it teaches by using real extracts from the Dutch media such as adverts and magazines. It then extends or revises grammar and provides a much wider and more useful vocabulary. In addition the book features real life situations which are obviously an excellent way to use your Dutch.
The book covers topics such as travel, food, work and health (it's kinda like the topics you learn about at A-level or GCSE foreign languages). A lot of the extracts are quite lively too and not dull like the ones you may have read in school.
I recommend you buy this book in conjunction with the other one (Dutch In Three Months) because there both complement each other i.e. one's more about grammar and the language theory whereas the other's more practical and more fun!
