*This section meets with graduate course N404

Prerequisite:  N200/N403 or permission of the instructor

Besides focusing on the textbook, we will concentrate throughout the
second semester on three topics:
1.) Short stories from the Netherlands and Belgium plus an short
introduction to colonial history and the influence of the Netherlands
and Dutch in other parts of the world;
2.)  Dutch television series and films;
3.)  Introduction to Dutch 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.
