Course Description

We will continue with Code Nederlands 1 and spend the first couple of weeks on reviewing grammar issues and texts. We will then start with Code Nederlands 2 and continue work much like in Dutch 604. Toward the end of the semester we will read Marga Minco's novel Het bittere kruid, the story of a Jewish family during the German occupation of the Netherlands in W.W. II. Students will also work on a Culture Project in Dutch. This entails creating a portfolio on a chosen topic about the Netherlands. Students may continue work on their topic from Dutch 604 or choose a new one. We will also watch several Dutch movies, among them the 1985 movie of Minco’s Het bittere kruid.
