*This section meets with GER-N403

Prerequisite: N402/N150 or permission of instructor. This course is a
continuation of N402/N150.

There will be a review and continuation of grammar with short weekly
quizzes. Major attention will be paid to improving speaking, reading
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: quizzes, a midterm, a presentation, an oral
examination, a couple of short papers and a final paper.
