Useful

If you have very little Dutch language knowledge, then this is a fair vocabulary for a visit to the Netherlands .

However, if you do not know any of the written Dutch language, then you will find it difficult to understand and pronounce quite a number of the words and phrases used here.

It's ok

Nothing special. After the first listen not sure how much will stick. Good for a quick reminder and some basic vocabulary but otherwise not as enjoyable as other simillar items I have used in the past

Quick fire Dutch

The format here is very easy to follow, and the pronunciation is good and gives sufficient time after the 1st example to practise (each example is repeated but the 2nd is cut a little short by the next English word/phrase).
Overall a handy quick start guide to learning Dutch; with repetition you'll be speaking it in no time.

A good intro to Dutch

Would be better if there was some accompanying text for the more complex phrases but for 1.99 who's complaining eh?

A very good introduction to Dutch

If you listen three or four times you'll learn a lot. For the first listen, don't repeat anything. For the second, repeat whatever you can. By the third, try to repeat all. After that, you can work on the phrases that give you trouble.
