Best Dutch app for serious students

Using this app has given me a much better feel for the Dutch language and a near-native accent, if I do say so myself, as well as the ability to sound out new words based on their spelling. I've also learned lots interesting factoids about The Netherlands and its society in the process. It really covers some practical basics quite thoroughly with the idea in mind that you are a recent immigrant assimilating into Dutch society (which I am not currently) - it's almost perfect - the perfect version being the one they teach this way in person, of course. I believe the purported "glitch" the previous reviewer mentioned is not a glitch but a feature of the tests - I believe the thinking is to make sure you listen closely to the audio without the distraction of starting to transcribe the first word or two. You are meant to truly master the dialogue before taking the test and know it practically by heart. During the test, you can only hear the sentence once and must type it out verbatim, and it selects 10 lines from the dialogue at random. I'm sure I'll revisit these lessons to brush up, but for now it's on to tweede ronde! Tot ziens!

A bit glitchy

When I took the test for the very first lesson, the app glitches so that I couldn’t listen to the sentences and couldn’t type the answers. I’m going to try the other apps.
