Assignment for 1 student
You are going to have a group of international visitors. They are interested in Dutch society and would very much like to be informed about daily events.
1) Find an interesting Dutch news topic in a newspaper, or on internet (television news is not very practical, so stick to a written source). A good site is www.taaldigitaal.nl (click on ‘kranten’). See what three different papers have written about one and the same news item.
2) Make a short summary of the three versions of this news event in English. Print a copy of each article. 3) Find some necessary extra information on internet, to sketch the historical background, if necessary.
4) Now prepare a presentation of approx. 10 – 15 minutes.
Tell your audience about the news item that you have selected.
Highlight the differences (if any) in the way in which the three different newspapers wrote about your news topic.
