Introduction to Dutch

Learning Dutch might not be the easiest thing in the world, it’s also certainly not the toughest thing: grammar and spelling are tied to strict rules that usually can be explained in a few lines. If you want to learn Dutch and you want to make a start yourself, you might use this complete Free Online Dutch Course: it contains all the basic grammar, vocabulary and even pronunciation rules you need and a lot of online exercises and tests. It’s a very good and well structured  introduction to learn dutch.  Still, it’s also good to have a good teacher and a good book to guide you if you want to learn dutch.
