The on-line resources

Here’s a list of the on-line resources which I found useful. Some web-sites have the companion mobile applications available.

http://www.youtube.com/user/dutchforn00bs — A series of video-lessons for the beginners. A Dutch girl explains the basic topics in a funny and easy-going manner.  This was the very first portion of knowledge I got.

http://www.book2.de — A treasure for a language learner! The web-site contains lessons for studying about 50 different languages, including Dutch: “book2 corresponds to the Common European Framework levels A1 and A2 and is therefore suitable for all types of schools and students.”  There are 100 lessons with audio to go through, which cover many everyday life topics. All the audio was recorded by the native speakers (professional narrators, I suppose). There’s a great Android application which helps to study the same lessons on the go: 50 languages Android app

http://quizlet.com/subject/dutch-nederlands — Many-many flash cards with the Dutch words, created by the users of quizlet.com. Those cards can be downloaded and used off-line on an Android device. Here’s an application that I use to download, store and use the cards: Flashcards+ Android app  It’s really handy. You can create, store and use your own Flashcards as well.

http://www.vandale.nl/opzoeken — A high-quality on-line dictionary. Supports English, French, German, Spanish and some other European languages.

http://www.dutchgrammar.com — A very good free Dutch grammar reference.

http://woordenlijst.org/zoek/ — Helps to check the grammatical forms of the words. For instance, I use it to check if a noun is a “het” or a “de” one. The verb forms can also be looked up.
