Pre-requisites: GCSE Level Dutch or equivalent proficiency

Aims/Description: The module is designed for those students who choose to study Dutch at Level One and already have acquired a basic knowledge of the language before coming to the University (GCSE level). The module will consist of two parts: General Language and Society. The General Language sessions specifically concentrate on extending students' vocabulary, increasing their insight into the more complicated grammatical patterns, and improving their oral skills and both their written and spoken comprehension. The Society hour offers an introduction to the history, culture and structure of Dutch Society. The approach is thematic and aims to provide a deeper insight into the history and society of the Dutch speaking areas.
