In this review five computer programs will be discussed: Vocabulary and Grammar (E. Franken), Dutch for Foreigners (G. Ruijl), Grammar of Dutch as a Second Language (S. de Vos), Edittraining ( . de Graauw and M. Stortelder), and a Dictionary of Dutch as a Second Language (M. Jagtman and M. Klijn). They were developed especially for Dutch as a second language. The programs are meant to be aids for different areas of language learning such as vocabulary, grammar and listening comprehension.Our general opinion about these programs is that they have not reached a mature level yet. The programs have problems concerning the functionality of the exercises and the amount and type of feedback given. Another problem is the fact that the programs do not integrate the different language skills. A positive aspect, on the other hand, is that the programs give the student and the teachers the possibilities for differentiation and self-education.The conclusion is, therefore, that these programs for Dutch as a second language need to be seriously improved, if we want the programs to be a true aid in language learning.
