Course Description

This accelerated Dutch course will focus on developing students' communicative abilities, and providing a thorough introduction to the culture, history, and society of the countries where Dutch is spoken. We will cover in one semester all the material normally covered in one year of instruction. With Dutch 612 in the spring, you can fulfill the two-year language requirement in just two semesters. Of course this means that both you and the instructor have quite some ground to cover. Keep in mind that language learning is always an intensive undertaking that demands a lot of practice. An accelerated course, therefore, is an intensively intensive undertaking!
