4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I got the book and cd pack, and It is soooo worth it. Definately I recommend it to anyone who wants to begin fluency in a foreign language. There is so much information in it. There are a couple negatives though: In programs like Pimsleur you don't even need to use the program very often and the words stick easily. However, as far as Pimsleur goes it is not worth paying 200 dollars to learn 10 phrases. This is the best bet for your money but you need to be commited and willing for it to have the fullest potential. Other than that this is the absolute best language program as far as content, money, and grammar. Awesome book.

5-0 out of 5 stars These Books are Excellent
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn the Dutch Language with a rather high level of fluency in a speedy manner. The dialogues in the book were nice, and the CD's really give you an edge in your learning. I had the books for 3 days and was already conversing in decently complicated sentences. After a few weeks I had finished the book and had found that I was conversing beautifully, and even got positive comments from some dutch speakers. However, this was only on the writing side of it. My only complaint with the series is that it doesn't really help you to be able to hear it and recognize it. In hearing a true Dutch Person speak it, I found myself unable to listen to what they were saying and understand it. Other than that, the books are excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent course - I recommend without hesitation.
I spend six months as an exchange student in Amsterdam - I got hold of this book two months before I went and worked through it thoroughly.It is absolutely excellent.I was prepared for all the basic everyday things very well, and Dutch people were surprised but delighted at how well I could speak the language.The dialogues on the CD are very good practice, particularly since some speakers speak in the Belgian (Flemish) accent, so you can also get used to that.The pace is fast, and I had to listen to some dialogues several times before I could understand every word, but that's no reason not to get it.I've just bought the TY Spanish book which is equally great. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Recommended only for weekend travellers...
My husband is Icelandic, and unfortunately this book was NO help at all... It's perfectly fine for the traveller, but in trying to live everyday life, conversing with new family members forget it. I would have liked to have seen a more comprehensive grammatical section, something that was laid out in something easy to look at and understand. If you are quite serious about learning this language I would honestly recommend saving the 20 bucks and buying the bit more expensive Colloquial Icelandic.For me at least, it's quite easier to understand, has complete grammatical charts in the back, as well as a fairly decent dictionary...Again, if you are only learning for business trips and such, then this would be a good option... For those of us actually moving there, her book is not so good...

4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource!
This is an excellent resource for those who want to learn the language of the Icelanders.I am very impressed at the tight relationship between the book and the CD's.Lessons on the CD follow exactly those in the book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Icelandic Review
The Icelandic learning program is well-presented and well-written. The dialogues are concise and aidful enough to allow the learner to understand the language much easily. The audio CDs is a must for the program as this is a language which requires careful listening and imitation of the sounds.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book, one of best in the series
This book should really be 1500 Dutch verbs, since the most useful part of the book is the section with 1500 verbs giving the reader the infinitive, simple past, and past participle, and indicating if there is separable prefix, along with translation.This is particularly useful in Dutch.There are also 201 verbs fully conjugated, but this is not so important as in some languages since most Dutch verbs conjugate quite regularly once you know the past and the participles.Its still good to have as a beginner of course.I would say this book is much better than some of the other 201 verbs books. I have 201 Italian, Spanish and Russian Verbs too, and they don't have any of the extras that this book has, such as the grammar summary and other bonus sections.This book is so good, in fact, I recommend it for those who don't even have an interest in the Dutch language.You just might after you browse through this great book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific reference book for conjugated verbs
My textbooks for the other languages I have studied always included a conjugation guide to most common irregular verbs at the back.When I discovered that my Dutch textbook lacked this feature, I invested in this book.Although my Dutch-English dictionary includes a brief listing of irregular verb formations in the beginning, the format of this book is significantly easier to understand.I particularly use it when I need to double-check my spelling (a feature for which my dictionary is nearly useless).I'm afraid that I'll have to disagree with the previous reviewer's assertion that public humiliation is the only way to learn (Dutch) spelling.I am a native English speaker and I still use my Webster's Unabridged nearly every day; there's no reason I shouldn't be able to do the same in Dutch.

3-0 out of 5 stars "My What Strong Verbs You have, Mr. Stern!"
The 201 Verbs series provides an easy crutch for learning those new conjugations but beware: One becomes too easily addicted to looking up the right spelling of that strong verb without thinking. An over-reliance on this kind of aide prevents one from developing the natural "taalvoel" to predict the correct form that only develops through mistakes and public humiliation in front of smug Dutch speakers.Use it, but look for the irregular patterns and try to predict how that irregular verb conjugates.Helpful as this book is in the beginning, throw it away as soon as you can.Stern includes a quick n' dirty review of grammer but his "Essential Dutch Grammer" is much better for a quick treatment.For a reference grammer for the average English speaking person, Donaldson's grammer is the best.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Useful for an experienced language learner
I found this the most useful text for learning Dutch of the several I own.The tapes and the exercises are excellent.In particular, the exercises are very, very extensive.If you work your way through all of them, you will really get a firm handle on issues like word order that others gloss over. (And Dutch word order is tricky enough that you really need a lot of explicit exercises.)4-0 out of 5 stars very useful guide

5-0 out of 5 stars An Exhaustive, Encyclopedic, Grammar Reference.
It would be difficult to imagine a more complete work on descriptive, Danish grammar, or any grammar, for that matter.You name it, it's covered here: orthography, sentence structure, verbs, adjectives, the list is very long(in fact, the very well organized index is 23 pages).Some readers have expressed the opinion that this book is very "British" but it is not.It is just very precise.For example, the terms copulatives(copulative conjuntions) and disjunctives(disjunctive conjunctions) are terms expressing the types of conjunctions used to join items and those used to separate them(as in the English "and" and "or").Many readers might not be accustomed to such terminology, but the book actually does not assume that the reader is.It explains these terms and often makes comparisons to English.This is not a book that a beginner should use to learn Danish all by itself.There are no reading lessons , for example, nor is it organized for tutorial presentation.It is a reference, but one that is very usable by students and speakers of all levels.There is also a similar volume in this series on Swedish grammar.The binding is also quite nice.It is sewn in signature.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Bible of Danish Grammar
This is the most comprehensive book of Danish grammar I have ever read! Even my Danish friends wanted this book so they could understand their own grammar. Its perfect for beginners and a great reference book for more advanced speakers of this often times difficult language. The only problem with this book (and the reason why I gave it 4 stars) is that it is written in very high formal British English, which is different from formal American English. This can often times confuse the reader, but not to a large extent. All in all, this is an excellent book and well worth the price. I plan on using this book the rest of my life (and the rest of my exchange year here in Denmark).

5-0 out of 5 stars Explaining Danish grammar when the Danes can't
I moved to DK several years ago. I had a few months of formal instruction, but still find it difficult to get answers to the "why" questions surrounding Danish grammar. Most Danes I have met cannot explain their own language's grammar rules, and also admit to not knowing or using proper grammar as well as they should. This book has definitely aided my language skills and provdes a handy reference as well, especially with professional correspondence. Highly recommended as a supplement to Danish instruction. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Mostly serviceable
Right now this is the most complete Danish dictionary Amazon stocks.I agree with the other reviewers about its shortcomings.While it does give the gender of Danish nouns, it doesn't give the plurals.Some common idioms are listed, but the selection seems to have been made with Danish speakers in mind.I recommend using this dictionary in conjunction with a purely Danish "retskrivnings" dictionary like Politiken's Danskordbog.If you find yourself in Denmark, buy the two-volume red Gyldendals dictionary ($80 each, special-ordered at Amazon) edited by Jens Axelsen.Gyldendals, unfortunately, doesn't give pronunciations either.If you want something to hold in your hand while you stroll through museums, buy the Berlitz.

3-0 out of 5 stars Buy a Different One if You Can
I'm in total agreement with the other two reviews.This dictionary has the vocabulary in place--but that's where a dictiorary's job should start.It's where the Routledge dictionary ends.Really necessary in a translation dictionary are the genders, plural forms, verb forms, good pronunciation keys, and idiomatic usages; even better are cross-referencing of cognates and "false friends," entries to help you understand nuances and etymology.This dictionary is sorely lacking in all these categories--most aggravating is the lack of plural forms, verb forms, and irregular forms in general.You can use this dictioary to read Danish, but you sure can't use it to help you write the language (not unless you want to write the Danish equivalent of "Me go store and buy two bits bread").Routledge (I imagine) wouldn't have done this with an Italian or French dictionary: Danish is a small language and, with a cornered market, they did a cheap, slapdash job. Fortunately, there is a very good Danish-English Dictionary available.Unfortunately, it is published (as far as I can tell) only in Denmark.They're really good.

3-0 out of 5 stars Danish side needs work
I agree completely with the previous reviewer.Routledge has published in a relatively inexpensive format a dictionary originally published in Denmark.The only addition is a VERY inadequate section on Danish pronunciation and noun and verb inflection.The dictionary should havepronunciations for all the Danish headwords and grammatical information onplurals, irregular verbs, etc., at the headwords.This has the potentialto be a great dictionary for English-speaking learners of Danish.As itis, assuming it's aimed at the English-speaking market, why did Routledgeeven bother? Very disappointing. Danish deserves better. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars quite good for beginners
This book is quite good for beginners, but not so good for scholars. It is good that it at least indicates pronunciation, in contrast to some Danish dictionaries, but the indication of pronunciation of Danish words is not so good as for English words, for example it does not indicate presence of the glottal stop. The dictionary claims to indicate only irregular plurals, which seems to mean change of vowel or doubling of consonants, but some Danish nouns have plurals in -e, others in -er, and this dictionary does not show which plural is used, whether -e or -er.

There's nothing exceptionally wrong with the dictionary, it's just not user friendly, and takes time to get used to.2-0 out of 5 stars language error
Having lived in Holland for six years and now running a small business lhave found this book usefull in writing letters and so forth. However lhave found an error which leads me to think that there may be more than theone. The book translates`Pissebed` and `Paardenbloem` both as meaningDandelion. This is incorrect. Pissebed means Woodlouse, Paardenbloem meansDandelion. Woodlouse is further translated as Houtluis which may be so ,however l have never heard anyone name a woodlouse anything but a Pissebed.

4-0 out of 5 stars A mixture of methods is best
To begin speaking Danish immediately, the Pimsleur course is best. But you will end up with a few stock phrases and a very limited vocabulary. So after you finish Pimsleur, start to use Teach Yourself Danish (TYD). You'll be surprised at how much appreciation of grammar the Pimsleur course gives you without you having to concentrate on it. TYD provides a lot more vocabulary and examples, explains enough of the grammar to know how the language works, and should be used along side other books or tapes.2-0 out of 5 stars Not for impatient beginners

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Jumpstarter to Dutch...
I emigrated to the Netherlands two years ago from California, an English-monolingual culture. I was familiar with Afrikaans, since I was born in South Africa. This made learning Dutch a lot easier for me, so I very quickly came up to speed. However, it was the book by Donaldson which was the vehicle that brought me up to speed. I know this because after I rapidly moved forward as I used the book, I recommended it to an American who also found the book useful. I had a number of other texts, but I quickly abandoned them and concentrated on Donaldson's book.4-0 out of 5 stars Een goed boek.
This was the closest thing I could find to a college textbook for first-year Dutch.Each chapter has about 4 grammar lessons, about 6 blocks of exercises to drill you on the grammar lessons, about 4 dialogues to read and hear on tapes which illustrate the grammar lessons, plus a couple of blocks on Dutch/Flemish culture.Read more
