20 Credits AUTUMN

Cannot be taken with: GER110

Aims/Description: Dutch is a language that you can pick up quickly, especially if you already have knowledge of German or another modern language. If you approach it with enthusiasm, you will find that you can reach a high level of competence in a relatively short time (A1 by the end of GER107 and A2 by the end of GER108). You do not need previous knowledge of Dutch to take this course. In addition to the language hours there will be one Dutch Studies seminar per week on Dutch and Flemish culture and history. The core material for the course is Nederlands in gang, which will be provided during the first week. The total cost will be about 25.

Restrictions on availability: Cannot be taken with GER110

Staff Contact: Dr Henriette Louwerse
Teaching Methods: Lectures, Seminars, Independent Study, oral classes
Assessment: Formal Exam, quiz
