dutch

having studied italian for seven years, i have decided that the winds of change are blowing my way and i've recently decided to teach myself dutch (i am tired of romance languages). i went to the netherlands for a mere weekend while i studied abroad in italy and i was fascinated by the language. my university has got the rosetta stone programs, so i started with that, and i bought a little dutch grammar book on amazon.

the real questions are, are there any suggestions for textbooks i should look into, anyone willing to help me out at all, and is this even a feasible goal? how many of you have successfully taught yourselves languages?

thanks to all!

ps. i am always looking for italian-practice-buddies to keep up my fluency; if you are too, let me know.
