Germanic Languages | Intermediate Norwegian I
K200 | 13308 | Gergana May

* Above class meets with GER-K 503

The course will build on your existing knowledge of Norwegian,
strengthening and expanding the language tools you already possess to
make you able to move beyond the everyday topics and into more
specialized areas of conversation. Topics of discussion this semester
will include Norwegian geography, history, society, folk narrative,
school-system, food and well-being. We will use mainly authentic
cultural materials. You will be required to do all the reading at
home. Class time will be devoted exclusively to discussion and going
over specific grammar topics and exercises. There will be a quiz every
other week on vocabulary and grammar. Weekly essays will also be
required. We will start with short, one-page essays and gradually
build to longer 2-3 page assignments. One written exam and two oral
presentations will count toward your final grade.
