N200 Dutch Reading, Composition & Conversation I (3 cr.)
Prerequisite: N150 or permission of instructor. This course is a
continuation of N100 and N150. There will be a review and
continuation of grammar with short weekly quizzes. Major attention
will be paid to improving grammar, reading, speaking, and writing
skills. As conversation is stressed, class participation is
important. In order to achieve the maximum enthusiasm in the class
discussions, students will be invited to bring up topics of their
interest. There will be short weekly quizzes that cover grammar, and
several short papers based on text materials we discuss in class.
Each student will be required to give a presentation in class on a
Dutch subject topic to be selected in consultation with lecturer, and
will be asked to write a final paper at the end of the semester.
Grading will entail: weekly quizzes, a midterm, a presentation, an
oral examination, a portfolio and a final paper.
