N403/N200  Dutch Reading, Composition, and 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.
