The jury's out ...

I'm an American who has been speaking German for over 30 years. I am able to read Dutch but had no idea how to speak it. This was the only course available on CD, so I figured, what the heck, and bought it. I played it at various times during my car journey from Michigan to Pennsylvania. I've now learned that what you see (as in reading) is not what you get (as in saying the written words)! I almost always wanted to refer to the little booklet that comes with the CD, which is a mean feat if one is steering a car. It would have been better in an airplane, I guess. All in all, I thought the American voice went on and on for too long, and Dutch wasn't spoken nearly enough. I've studied other foreign languages through other methods, and I find this particular entry to be very weak, although the German section in this series is pretty good.

There is a free audioscript by the publisher

Any additional comments?

If you want to read along in order to help you figure out what the audio is saying, go to the Living Language (the publisher of this audio) webpage. Go to free resources and midway down on the right toolbar of the Living Language website is a link to the Audio Scripts: In-Flight programs. Click that and it takes you to pdfs of the audio scripts.
It really helps me to see the phrases written out to help me decide if I am hearing a "P", or a "D", and so on.
I have not listened to Dutch yet, and had a lot of trouble finding the pdf, so thought I would go ahead and share this tip in time for visiting spring tulip fields in the Netherlands. I really liked In-flight French, and expect to like this one also, now that I can read along. Enjoy
