Aims

In consonance with the overall aims of the degrees offered in the SML, this module will introduce students to the Dutch language both in its written and spoken form, so that by the end of the course students will be able to speak and write in Dutch to roughly between GCSE and A-level standard.

This course is an introduction to the Dutch language for students who speak German. It will be divided into two parts:
A) Writing skills: i.e. Dutch grammar, translation into English and text comprehension (reading different types of texts and answering questions in Dutch;
B) Oral and listening skills (including role-plays based on the set coursebook, general conversation and listening exercises).
One hour a week will be given to each part of the course. Part B will be taught by a native speaker of Dutch.
