The book Nederlands in Actie will be used for exploring the themes as Foreigners in The Netherlands, Health, Relations, Art & Culture and Literature (new vocabulary) as well as for presenting grammatical structures. Emphasis is placed on improving fluency in speaking and expanding vocabulary. Grammar and learning about the Dutch culture are an integral part of this course. Special attention will be given to speaking skills by using:
- the “speaking skills cards”
- the list of conversation topics
- a question and answer list with topics of general knowledge of The Netherlands
- talking about a news paper article
For practising one’s listening skills we use texts from a variety of methods. For practising one’s writing skills, some writing assignments will be given for homework. For extra practice on grammatical topics the Stepping Stone II handout will be given in order to work at in class (in pairs) and at home individually.
