Reviews - What do customers think about Essential Dutch Phrase Book (Essential Phrasebook Series)?
This book would be amazing if they proofread it Mar 6, 2004
Helpful categories, well organized, and could really use the services of a good proofreader. It's full of typos. "2001" is translated as "1999", there are a number spelling errors in the Dutch. This book was apparently written for the UK market, and when they decided to adapt it to the US market, they didn't change the translations. "I am American" is translated as "I am English", "These are the details of my bank in the United States" is translated as "These are the details of my bank in the United Kingdom", "dollars" is "English pounds". If you get past those issues, it's pretty helpful for basic and useful phrases.
A Treasure in a Tiny Package! Aug 21, 2003
This little booklet is amazing! Crammed into its small pages are all the phrases you need when traveling in the Netherlands. I was absolutely astounded at how much they crammed into this tiny book. In addition to all the phrases you need at the airport, hotel, restaurant, shopping, and when driving, it even has such extended sections as phrases at the beauty salon and when camping! In addition, it also contains several very useful sections on how to read road signs, and a complete list of foods so you can figure out menus. Finally, it contains a very complete dictionary of English-Dutch. And all this in a tiny book you can slip into your pocket! Great job!
