Hehe, I answer this to the whole list only because another Netherlands-dwelling
conlanger may want to get it too :))) . I bought it at Blokker in the Megastore
in The Hague. But I would be surprised if they don't have it in other Blokkers.
It's called "Paspoort naar 35 talen". And for people who don't speak Dutch, the
interface can be in one of 6 or 7 languages (you have to choose both your
beginning language - usually your mothertongue - and your target language). As
a tool to learn a language, it's probably a bit weak (as far as I've seen, the
grammar is not made into lessons and exercises but into a long grammar
explanation, which may not be the best to learn to make your own sentences with
the vocabulary you learn otherwise), but it's written that it's a touristic
course (so they don't lie about its capacities :))) ) and anyway such a
multilingual tool is a must for a conlanger, even if it's only for collecting
purposes ;)))) .
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
