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 ;)))) . Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
