Basic Dutch: A Grammar and Workbook comprises an accessible reference grammar and related exercises in a single volume.
This Workbook presents twenty-five individual grammar points in realistic contexts, providing a grammatical approach which will allow students not already familiar with these structures to become accustomed to their use. Grammar points are followed by examples and exercises allowing students to reinforce and consolidate their learning.
Suitable for class use or self-study, Basic Dutch introduces Dutch culture and people through the medium of the language used today, providing students with the basic tools to express themselves in a wide variety of situations.

These titles combine explanation with exercise work. The Basic Grammar Workbooks are for learners starting at elementary level. Intermediate Grammar Workbooks follow on from these and are for learners who have achieved basic proficiency and wish to progress to more complex language. Each combines clear, concise grammar explanations with communicatively oriented exercises to help build confidence and fluency.
Suitable for independent learners and students on taught courses, the Basic and Intermediate volumes together form a structured course of the essentials of each language's grammar.
All Grammar Workbooks are available as inspection copies.
