A real help for self-teaching.

Great for newcomers, clear and brief descriptions of the grammar rules. However, a more complete book may be needed for the intermediate or advanced level

A very useful guide indeed.

Most phases of Dutch grammar are explained in a way that is easy to understand, from spelling and pronunciation to vocabulary building. It is also a helpful work of evidence for the more advanced student.

Comprehensive guide

the audiobook is great advice in helping you understand dutch grammar through spelling, word order, verbs, past tense, and because it goes into such detail comparing the English verbs, etc I have learned/been suggested of my English language in better more detail.

It has plenty of short grammatical instructions

Basic Dutch Grammar is a wonderful audiobook that has been a partner of mine through my Dutch language learning journey. It uses a no-frills, no-nonsense entrance to the topic.

Good!

This AUDIObook is pretty helpful if you already have a partner pronunciation book or cd. It describes the Dutch grammar well, but for a beginner, you may want to start with something else. Not bad as a complement to another language book.

Great start

Grammar is defined very simply and sets one up to begin learning and constructing sentences in Dutch. The brief format of the book was also extremely helpful for evaluating rules and structures before tests.

Easy to understand

This book is an eye-sore, however, it is the best you can buy. It is a skeletal survey yet thorough explanation of grammar.. This audiobook taught me how to speak fluid Dutch.

Love it very helpful

It does a great job of describing some of the difficulties of Dutch and connects it to English in an understandable way. It surely isn't what made me fluent, but I do think it to be an important stepping stone to achieving that.

Great guide

Gives a wider knowledge on Dutch language and start speaking them yourself. Great for newcomers like me who is trying to visit Denmark in the future. Offers tips and techniques in speaking this language more easily and sounds like a native one.

Excellent grammar for beginner

Examples are clear. It is not a workbook. For exercises, you will require another source. I am not positive if it is up to date on current usage given publication date, but has been quite beneficial for me.

Great!!!!

This audiobook is a nice starter book for those looking to learn Dutch. If you're advanced and already speak straight to fluent Dutch then you apparently won't require this but for you beginners out there this is a great source to have on hand.
