Format: Audio CD
I purchased the MICHEL THOMAS Total Dutch course shortly after having completed the PIMSLEUR Comprehensive Dutch course. Here is what I found:

Prospective buyers of the Michel Thomas Method language courses should be aware that the parent company, Hodder Education, has issued "repackaged" and "retitled" versions of all the courses. On the Michel Thomas website, under the section FAQ, readers are left with the impression that ALL of the new courses have benefited from a recent update. Unfortunately, this is NOT SO. Some courses have been updated, whereas others haven't. The "new" Michel Thomas TOTAL DUTCH package is an exact copy of their previous product, Michel Thomas SPEAK DUTCH, save for the packaging. This in no way affects the QUALITY of the current edition. However, buyers expecting to receive an improved version of the course (at a higher price) could be disappointed.

Both instructional methods are presented as AUDIO ONLY programmes. The Michel Thomas Method course package includes a small pamphlet containing partial extracts from the audio programme. However, it is far from being a transcript. The Pimsleur course includes, what they identify as, a "Reading Guide", which is really more a "reading for pronunciation" guide than a transcript. Only some of the vocabulary is drawn from the course and it does not correlate directly to the lessons. Transcripts are not provided and, if they were, given the structure of the course, they would be more of a distraction than an aid. In both instances, the student would be well advised to make his/her own notes (vocabulary and example phrases) with the help of a dictionary and a grammar.

You don't find many products that meet, let alone, exceed expectations. Here's one that does.

As a very rapid and compelling method to get you to a functional level with the Dutch language, I believe that this is THE BEST course for an adult or teenage learner. While I was initially rather sceptical about this method as I'd had not read much about it until recently, it really does work surprisingly well and it is far superior to Rosetta Stone or Pimsleur in its intended scope. The instructor and students speak very clearly and always keep it interesting for the listener with humour, pronunciation correction, and helpful tips to build your confidence. It is very focused in its presentation and methodology and it delivers on its promise without you having to spend hours memorizing conjugations and tenses. Somehow, it all sinks in fairly painlessly without bogging you down with mind-numbing lists of vocab that eventually wears down even the most enthusiastic learner. Yes, you're going to need to build vocab sooner or later but, in my experience, you invest time in that as demand requires it. Visit one of the many Dutch vocabulary builder websites out there to build on the excellent foundation that this course will give you and you'll be reaching an advanced level in no time at all.
