Fun way to get started in a new language

Would you listen to Get Talking Dutch in Ten Days again? Why?

Yes. This is a book that you will always return to as learning and maintaining a new language always needs revision and constant practice.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Not applicable in this case as this is a language learning course. :0)

What does Teach Yourself Languages bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

You get the chance to hear and try the correct pronunciation for the words and phrases. As you listen to more and more of the language, you begin to recognise words that you have learned previously.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Not applicable.

Lesson 1: numbers (went on and on)
2: days of the week
3: months of the year
4: fell asleep and deleted it off my iPod when I woke up

Sorry, but this was the worst Dutch course I have tried (and there have been several). Maybe it gets better, but life's too short to find out, in my opinion.
