Lonely Planet Dutch Phrasebook & Dictionary Reviews
I got this book based on several people recommending the Lonely Planet line of books and I was not disappointed, except that we couldn't stay longer to actually learn more of the language. Nicely laid out with good conjugation charts and tips on who to speak the difficult, profuse vowel sounds and included lots of useful phrases. Not that we really needed them, because everyone spoke very good English!
This little book is so good. It has phrases for just about any situation you find yourself in. It covers dating, banking, shopping and every thing else.
Pronounciation guide written from a Brit's point of view I think. A little confusing for Americans.
If you're interested in speaking Dutch this is one book that you should have.
If you have the time to put the work in, this is a pretty good phrasebook. The type is so small and dense that it's difficult to use in a hurry -- or even a slow-y. Also, the pronunciation/phonics method is not very good for Dutch. I think I would use it more as a dictionary. Would probably be more useful for expats or long-term visitors. I prefer the phonetic method used in Say It Right in Dutch and that book is easier to use. Not sure if I'll sacrifice the weight to take this one with me for my three week trip.
nice phrasebook. good pronunciation guides
Smaller than I thought but will be useful.
I'll used this. Just not my first choice.
