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 quizzes regularly and short essays 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 essays and a final.
