Product Description:

Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher

When it comes to Dutch, you can safely put aside those negative stereotypes about 'double Dutch'. The reality is that Dutch and English are closely related, both being members of the Germanic family of languages. Such are the similarities that Bill Bryson was moved to remark in Neither Here Nor There that 'when one hears Dutch, one feels one ought to be able to understand it.'

Conversational Dutch Quick and Easy: The Most Innovative Technique to Learn the Dutch Language, Learn Dutch, Travel to Amsterdam

Kindle Edition (58 pages)

Conversational Dutch Quick and Easy: The Most Innovative Technique to Learn the Dutch Language, Learn Dutch, Travel to Amsterdam
 
Product Description:
Have you always wanted to learn how to speak Dutch but simply didn't have the time?
Well if so, then, look no further. You can hold in your hands one of the most advanced and revolutionary method that was ever designed for quickly becoming conversational in a language. In creating this time-saving program, master linguist Yatir Nitzany spent years examining the twenty-seven most common languages in the world and distilling from them the three hundred and fifty words that are most likely to be used in real conversations. These three hundred and fifty words were chosen in such a way that they were structurally interrelated and, when combined, form sentences. Through various other discoveries about how real conversations work--discoveries that are detailed further in this book--Nitzany created the necessary tools for linking these words together in a specific way so that you may become rapidly and almost effortlessly conversant--now.
If your desire is to learn complicated grammatical rules or to speak perfectly proper and precise Dutch, this book is not for you. However, if you need to actually hold a conversation while on a trip to the Netherlands, to impress that certain someone, or to be able to speak with your grandfather or grandmother as soon as possible, then the Nitzany Method is what you have been looking for. This method is designed for fluency in a foreign language, while communicating in the present tense. Nitzany believes that what's most important is actually being able to understand and be understood by another human being right away. More formalized training in grammar rules, etc., can come later.
This is one of the several, in a series of instructional language guides, the Nitzany Method's revolutionary approach is the only one in the world that uses its unique language technology to actually enable you to speak and understand native speakers in the shortest amount of time possible. No more depending on volumes of books of fundamental, beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, all with hundreds of pages in order to learn a language. With Conversational Dutch Quick and Easy, all you need are forty-six pages.
Learn Dutch today, not tomorrow, and get started now!

This is the first Dutch grammar specifically designed for the adult with limited learning time whose objective is broader, more fluent everyday communication. Avoiding archaic, highly literary and seldom-used forms, this grammar helps those with some knowledge of Dutch use phrases and vocabulary more effectively. For the beginner, it provides all the grammar really needed for speech and comprehension.:
Based on the premise that systematic study of grammar is a shortcut to language learning, Essential Dutch Grammar helps you acquire fluency by emphasizing the strong similarities between English and Dutch, and by concentrating on essentials: spelling, word order, articles and nouns, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, verbs, conjunctions and prepositions--all illustrated by easy-to-understand examples.
While explaining how to avoid complicated sentence constructions, tell time and use idioms, the book provides dozens of useful expressions, four detailed appendices on verbs, and a handy glossary of grammatical terms. Whether you're just beginning the study of Dutch or need a handy refresher course, Essential Dutch Grammar offers a modern, streamlined approach that will enable you to master Dutch in the shortest possible time.

Product Description:
How does it work?
During the course, you will join Michel Thomas Method teachers Cobie Adkins-De Jong and Els Van Geyte and two students in a live lesson, hearing both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. Within the very first hour you will be able to construct simple phrases by listening and thinking out answers for yourself without the pressure of writing or memorizing.

Why is the method so successful?
The Michel Thomas Method was perfected over 50 years by celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. This unique method works with your brain and draws on the principles of instructional psychology. Knowledge is structured and organised so that you assimilate the language easily and don't forget it. The method breaks down the language into building blocks that are introduced sequentially in such a way that you create your response and move on to ever-more-complex sentences. You'll stick with it because you'll love it.

Where do I go next?
Start Dutch with the Michel Thomas Method is an hour of essentials taken from Total Dutch with the Michel Thomas Method. After you finish your Start course, you can move to the Total Dutch course, which includes 9 hours of audio and a practice CD-ROM. Perfect Dutch follows on from the Total course with 5 hours of audio and a practice CD-ROM.

Learn anywhere
Don't be tied to chunky books or your computer, Michel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move with your MP3 player.
