I latterly begun learning Dutch so one can converse larger with my Dutch boyfriend, and so i presumed this e-book will be a pleasant complement to Stern's brief yet informative "Essential Dutch Grammar." The booklet is well geared up for the total newbie, beginning with a pronunciation part (which really is beautiful vague), then getting into spelling principles and the way to shape plural nouns, sooner than even attending to sentence constitution and verb conjugation. So it's a great factor to examine when you've got by no means encountered Dutch before.
BUT! This ebook is loaded with spelling blunders that I, with my vocabulary of probably 50 Dutch phrases, used to be in a position to spot instantly. for instance, in a vocabulary record illustrating the spelling ideas, it says the Dutch be aware for cause is "redden". NO it is not, it is "reden" with just one D. The very subsequent web page says the singular AND plural for bicycle is "fietsen", whilst really the singular is "fiets" and the simply the plural is "fietsen". the feared factor is that these are only the 2 that i spotted, who is aware what percentage extra error there are. they could simply be small spelling errors, but if you're studying a brand new language and your research consultant has most of these mistakes, it makes you ask yourself what else is wrong.
Fortunately, although, the foundations often appear to be real, compared to what Stern's "Grammar" says, so i might nonetheless provide this publication a shot, since it does provide loads of examples of every grammar rule. simply do not use it for a vocabulary resource.
