Germanic Languages | Beginning Norwegian I
K100 | 3346 | May


*Course meets with GER-K 501

The course will introduce you to the fundamentals of the Norwegian
language and will provide you with the tools to function in an
everyday context. You will be able to discuss daily topics such as
food, weather, housing, clothing, health, likes/dislikes, and travel.
Authentic cultural materials will be used whenever possible. Class
meetings are an invaluable immersion experience; therefore, your
attendance and participation are essential to being successful.
Homework will deal with grammar exercises, but essay writing will
gradually be required. Weekly quizzes, two tests and two oral exams
will count toward the final grade.
