Recently I've received 3 Dutch books for my birthday, since my friend knows that I'm learning Dutch. I've been studying Dutch for about 5 months, and my level is not above the basics, but I think this will be a great experience and that it'll help me so much!

Dank jullie wel! =)
Ideas for learning Dutch. What have you tried? What worked for you? What did not work for you?
