This intensive foundation course in Dutch is designed for those with no previous knowledge of the language. It is lively and fast-paced, providing students with a wide range of activities, and drawing on an impressive selection of source material from many different media. Audio materials are presented on accompanying CDs, to be purchased separately.

Taking students from beginner to intermediate level in one year, the Routledge Intensive Dutch Course develops a thorough working knowledge of the structures of Dutch and practises the four key skills of language learning: reading, writing, speaking, and listening.

Guidance for tutors as well as links to related sites is available on the Routledge website.
