The German publisher Compact has published a few graded readers for Dutch in their series of Lernkrimis ("crime stories for learning"). These books have a CD with MP3 recordings of the text; they also contain exercises: *De moordenaar van Den Haag * (level A1); Fataal weerzien (level A2); Dood in de grachten (level A2). Kees Van den End has published ...

Yes there are and I'd recommend just using the lists that are used for (older) children. As you might have guessed, the market for second language Dutch learners isn't that big, but there are many people who write children's books. Because of that, new books get published a lot and as such they are more relevant when it comes to new trends. I cannot find a ...

BeterSpellen.nl is a site where you fill in a daily test at three different skill levels (1F is primary school level, 2F is lower vocational or societal level and 3F is theoretical high school level).

I believe Cambiumned is used often on Dutch high schools. One of the potential downside, which can also be an upside, is that this site is completely in Dutch. It is focused on people who are learning Dutch as their native language. If your Dutch is good enough, this is not really a problem however, and it can even help in that case. One notable thing is ...

It is certainly easier to learn Dutch when you know German and vice versa. The similarity is perhaps a bit more significant than between the romance langauges (Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.) As anecdotal evidence: I have seen Dutch speaking perfect German, but it seems to be more difficult in the other way. A more obvious version of this ...

There are a few rules that you can use (similar to German) but they don't cover all nouns. Websites about learning Dutch as a foreign languages sometimes list of few of these, but all of these listings are very incomplete. Below is a sample from longer list that I compiled on my website: The following categories of nouns are neuter: diminutive forms, e.g. ...

So what types of resources can a native speaker of Dutch use to teach Dutch grammar to non-native speakers? (A few examples would be nice.) Since you talk about a native speaker and a language learner, I'm assuming they have a shared language to communicate in. That's not that big of an assumption, many people know English, either as a native language or as ...

While not specifically a graded reader answer, what I did was got myself a PDF copy of Minoes and a MP3 narration as well. I would listen to the narration and began translating the boom myself one page a day. I did not sync the listening to the translating. I just would listen on the way to work and translate at home. By the time I was up to chapter six in ...
