In 2009 I passed an A2 exam in Dutch in Brussels as I had to prove that I was willing to learn Dutch (for a job).
The job did not materialize, but... I discovered that no cheap, full Dutch grammar was available in Italian.
Therefore, I translated http://www.dutchgrammar.com/ with the author's authorization, and this is the draft.
Obviously, things did change- including the original English version, but I saw that an Italian university used this translation years ago, and therefore, maybe, eventually I will again try to update it, post online all the pages.
In order to avoid any misunderstanding: the missing appendixes in this version are missing on purpose, as I transferred the rights to the original author(s) to do as they please, and I did not want to affect their sales.
As a further learning tool, I shared some creative writing in Dutch on nlschap.wordpress.com, in 2009 (moving from A2 up, using a business Dutch course posted online by a university in UK) and 2011 (to share my learning experience on business Dutch using a course in Dutch, with material up to B2/C1).
I never really needed to use Dutch, and therefore I retain just reading skills- but it is still worth sharing.
And, I promise, if and when I will happen to work in a Dutch-speaking environment, I will update all the files- and, with some mother tongue volunteer, comment on each one of the "learning posts" exercises on nlschap.wordpress.com (generally following an approach that I called "10-4-20" and that I registered with WGA long ago).
Enjoy- comments, as usual, welcome; and inspirations to copycat and replicate, even more welcome
PS for the first 12 hours, I left active the download option for this document :)
PPS I set the license option as "all rights reserved"- go to the website http://www.dutchgrammar.com if you need a license to distribute, derive something else, etc (I don't get a penny by choice, but I transferred to the website of the Dutch source the right to do as they please- to me, it was just an extended language learning exercise)
