N401/N100 	Intensive Dutch I (4 cr.)			
					

Prerequisite: This course presupposes no prior knowledge of Dutch. It
is possible to attend N100 as a first foreign language course.
We move fairly rapidly through elementary grammar and
pronunciation, and concentrate on conversation and reading from the
beginning. Audio-recordings and video material will be used on a
regular basis in order to improve listening comprehension and
pronunciation skills. Students are encouraged to bring up their own
topics of interest to be covered in class.
The goals to be reached by the end of the first semester of Dutch are
good pronunciation, elementary grammar, a reasonable conversational
fluency, and an ability to read not too complicated texts.
Grading will entail: weekly quizzes, a midterm, a presentation on a
Dutch subject (in English), an oral examination, a portfolio and a
final. Class participation is a requirement for successful completion
of the course, therefore it also covers a solid part of the grade.
