Excellent Software

I adquired this products a few years ago before I moved to the United Kingdom as my husband is Ducth
and wanted to have a basic knowledge of his language.

The course has excellent tools that helped me learn words, grammar and to be able to recognise words
when hearing them. The best part, in my opinion, is that you are able to practise the pronuntiation and
with the voice recognition option lear an accurate way to say the words!!!! Unfortunately I lost it when I
moved but I have now bought it again to keep learning as it is an amazing interactive tool!
