Best Internet Resources for Learning Dutch?

Jump to last reply

I know most Dutch people speak English (and often a few more languages) quite well. Nevertheless, I'm highly considering a trip to Holland in 2012 and thought I'd like to reach a point where I could stand a chance of interacting with restaurant staff/ store clerks in a polite manner, be understood and hopefully understand their response in Dutch. I know from the languages that I *can* do this in (English, French, Spanish) that this sort of ability uses only a small subset of the language. Plus, I think it'll be interesting and enjoyable to expose myself to a rich, historic language...not too far from German, which I took a semester of in university... so I'm hoping my brain might latch on to enough similarities between languages to be able to handle this challenge :).

When I went to Belgium in the 1990s, I'd learned a number of expressions and managed an "ik heb een waterzooi alstublieft" in Ghent but completely crumbled in the ensuing aftermath. I'd like to do better this time around. There have been posts on this topic in the past, but not specifically addressing online resources to learn Dutch. All suggestions of Internet (or other) resources for those who have tried to learn Dutch (or have friends who did if you are Nederlands/Vlaams) would be welcomed, especially those with a systematic approach. (Verb conjugations, etc...) I've found a few on youtube typing in "Learning Dutch" and some seem better than others for basic learning, so if you recommend one of these even over another, I'd appreciate that.

I understand some parts of Holland speak dialect. This may seem like a weird question, but would Amsterdam be a good place to practice standard Dutch?

Thanks in advance, Daniel
