Germanic Languages | Beginning Norwegian II
K150 | 8175 | May


Prerequisite: K150 with a minimum grade of C-.
*This course meets with graduate course K502.

This is a second semester language course, which will continue to
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.
