I'm a Dutch native speaker myself and the only tip I can give you is never to give up. Dutch is hard, as it contains a lot of exceptions on rules, but if you study hard you will be able to speak fluent Dutch eventually! Heel veel succes toegewenst! :)

The no.1 tip is to never give up. maybe in 3 months you'll feel like you've not made progress, but if you keep chipping away each day just a little bit, eventually you'll succeed.

Also if you do stop, remember you're always welcome to get back to learning, pick up from where you left off you'll be straight back into progress.

Read the "Tips and notes" under the lessons in the web version of Duolingo (www.duolingo.com).
Here is the link to a great "Overview of grammar explanations":

Same as any other language - practice a lot, regularly, and in as many ways as possible. Once you get to the point you know a decent amount of vocabulary, try reading a kids book in Dutch, or watching kids TV (I highly recommend Het Klokhuis) with subtitles on, in addition to daily Duolingo practice.

You can also read news articles in Dutch, especially using things like the TransOver extension for Chrome (lets you mouseover a word to translate it), or extensions that will translate random English words in to Dutch as you browse the web.

There really is no substitute for practice in language learning. It's just a matter of finding where and how you can wedge it into your day.

You should try learning from people who learn Dutch; Every multilingual person learned their language from someone whose experienced with the language. For example I learned my native language from my parents who know the language. Hope this helps! =)
