Dutch 1101

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Professor de Groot is an excellent teacher in that she is very open to class discussion and questions. She obviously wanted everyone to understand Dutch and improve their speaking abilities; she answered dozens of personal questions right in class. We did lots of drills and speaking exercises. The professor has a nice sense of humor and often invited us to Dutch themed events on and off campus. I enjoyed learning Dutch with her. However, due to the small class size and funding, the course felt unstructured at times, and she gave us a lot of extraneous material which she would inform us "we wouldn't have to know." This was a waste of time to me; why should we look over two dozen words on kitchen appliances if we don't need to know them? But the class was easy and enjoyable overall.

Workload:

I think this class was easy for most people, because she gave us short, easy homework assignments. We had a chapter quiz/test about every other week. Everything was manageable and enjoyable.
