N250/N404:Dutch Reading Composition & Conversation II

Prerequisite:  N200/N403 or permission of the instructor
Throughout the second semester we will concentrate on three topics:
1 Short stories from the Netherlands,  Indonesia, the Caribbean,
South Africa plus an short introduction to colonial history and the
influence of the Netherlands and Dutch in other parts of the world;
2 Dutch and Belgian documentaries, television series and films;
3 Short survey of Dutch literary history: main genre = poetry.
The skills focused on in the 4th semester are: perfection of
speaking, grammar and writing.  The films and television series will
help your listening comprehension of the native language spoken in a
natural environment.  Oral skills will be enhanced by active
participation in discussions and by presenting two main projects in
class and smaller ones throughout the semester. Special time will be
set aside to incorporate special interests of students in the class.
