Colloquial Dutch by Bruce Donaldson

This product was recommended by Alina Clark from CocoDoc

I’ve tried many other language/phrasebooks, and I think the Colloquial Series are the best for beginners who plan to learn and pursue it to a higher level. This book explains every detail on grammars usage and the cultural points are interesting as well. The explanations are very clear, and you’ll find the learning process with colloquial series is very smooth, you’ll hardly feel lost. The audio CD mainly focuses on conversations in every chapter, I like it because the native speakers talk as they are in everyday life (kind of fast for beginners), which is good cuz it’s realistic. Just listen to it over and over until you’re able to understand everything. Highly recommended.
