Defense Language Institute Dutch  - Image Book II is an "Intermediate Level Dutch Re-fresher Course" consists of 42 lessons in the text material and 42 pre-recorded audios of approximately 20 minutes in length to accompany the text. The 42 lessons and audios are further divided into a total of 6 units containing 7 lessons and audios per unit.

A typical unit of 7 lessons and audios is made up of the following instructional materials:
I. Spontaneous Dialogs
II. Substitution Drills
III. Tests

The spontaneous dialogs are contained on the first 5 audios and in the first 5 lessons of each unit. The substitution drills appear on each 6th audio and in each 6th lesson. Similarly, the tests for each unit appear on each 7th audio, with test answers appearing at the end of the Book.

The 5 dialogs of each unit, each appearing on one full audio of approximately 20 minutes, are in 5 sections:
-Dialog for Listening
-Dialog for Memorization
-Dialog for Fluency
-Dialog for Listening (again)
-Dialog for Participation

Based on the previous 5 dialog audios, each 6th audio contains simple substitution drills designed to give the student fluency in controlling on audio the dialog sentences with additional variations provided by substitution elements. The student's goal in performing these drills is to be able to say the sen-tences with their substitution elements without hesitation and with acceptable pronunciation. The final audio of each unit is a short check-up containing a translation drill based on the previous 5 dialogs. The student is asked to listen, and immediately to provide a suitable written English translation.
