The textbook for the Third Round consists of 15 texts on themes pertaining to the Netherlands, such as: famous Dutch people, economical development or the Golden Age. By this stage the texts will have become more specialized and once again, during the lessons, the various passages will be discussed. During the course each participant is expected to give three independently prepared oral presentations. Each course participant is also expected to submit five fairly long written assignments. The presentations and written assignments constitute part of the final test and, as such, must be of a high enough standard if the participant is to pass the test. Clearly it is therefore not possible to prepare for this final test by means of self-study alone.
