20 Credits SPRING

Cannot be taken with: GER110
Pre-requisites: GER107H

Aims/Description: The bulk of Dutch Beginners 2 consists of building on the language skills already acquired during Dutch Beginners 1. The emphasis on the communicative aspect is maintained, but grammatical patterns become more extensive and increasingly complicated. A weekly session is reserved for a concise introduction to the history, culture and structure of Dutch Society. At the end of Dutch Beginners 2, students are expected to speak and understand Dutch in the most common social circumstances. Their use of the language is expected to be elementary and free from fundamental errors. They can write uncomplicated letters and essays and read straightforward pieces of written Dutch without difficulty.
