    "Too short"

    2000 words are needed to understand daily language so it would be great if Ear Worms would provide this and an advanced course to 10,000. There's nothing else on the market to 10,000.

    "Easy introduction to a language"
    What did you love best about Rapid Dutch: Volumes 1 & 2?

    This was a fun, easy way to be introduced to a language. The two presenters are charming and it doesn't feel like endless language drills.

    "The best way to get a language stuck in your head"

    I bought Earworms Rapid Dutch entirely because I had a gift certificate I had to spend and it sounded like fun. I'm a serious student of Dutch working with a private tutor, but I wanted something to listen to in the car to get the Dutch sounds in my head on a daily basis. This did the trick.

    The Earworms series isn't exactly what it advertises. I thought I would get Dutch words and phrases set to music, much like the ABC and numbers songs you teach children in English or the Schoolhouse Rock TV shows from the 1970s. The language isn't set to music, but there is a musical background to all the dialogs. A Dutch speak says a phrase, like "Good morning" or "I'm sorry", and the English speaker repeats it. This is done in a playful manner with the English speaker occasionally adding helpful mnemonics like, "Oh, that sounds like "it spites me"." Then the Dutch speaker says, "That's right!" and the lesson moves on. It's casual and laid back and it keeps phrases stuck in my head better than just repeating them with my tutor.

    It's not the be-all and end-all of language learning because at most, there are only 3 volumes of each language. But it gives a great introduction. And more important than anything, they get the language stuck in your head. I only wish there were versions for other languages I want to study!
