Germanic Languages | Dutch Reading, Composition & Conversation I
N200 | 2949 | Ham


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 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 the instructor. Grading will entail:
weekly quizzes, a midterm, a presentation, an oral examination, a
couple of short papers and a final paper.
