UPPER INTERMEDIATE NORWEGIAN 4-ONLINE

This class is designed for students who are comfortable reading and communicating orally in Norwegian at a beginning/lower intermediate level, and who are serious about taking the next step in their Norwegian language learning journey.  Unlike other MNLCP classes, we will use Stein på stein, the primary curriculum used in Norway to build language competency among intermediate learners for whom Norwegian is not a first language, to guide learning. 

Through weekly written assignments students will deepen their understanding of essential linguistic and cultural knowledge and also increase skills related to reading, speaking and listening.  Instruction is conducted primarily in Norwegian and will challenge students to demonstrate their learning both orally and through writing. This class is recommended for those who have completed Intermediate Norwegian 5 and above, or the equivalent and who are committed to spending time on their Norwegian studies outside of class.

KUREREN- ONLINE

Kureren begins in 1942, when Ester, a Jewish courier, flees to Sweden after narrowly escaping the Gestapo.  In Stockholm, she meets resistance hero Gerhard Falkum who has fled from the Germans as well as  speculation that he murdered his wife Åse. Ester and Falkum’s budding relationship ends abruptly when Falkum apparently dies in a fire in 1943. Twenty-five years later Gerhard Falkum re-appears in Oslo. He wants to resume contact with the daughter he had with Åse. Join us as we read this thriller and contemplate the reason he re-appears after 25 years. This class is designed for learners with a strong grasp of Norwegian and desire to actively engage in their learning through conversation, grammar exercises, vocabulary development, read alouds, and special projects.

SØSTERKLOKKENE- IN-PERSON

Only 28 of the 2,000 stavkirker that once existed in Norway exist today. In Lars Mytting’s Søsterklokkene, the fate of Butangen stavkirke and its magical bells is interoven with the fates of the three main characters: Astrid Hekne, whose ancestors had donated the bells to the church; Kai Schweigaard, the new minister who wants to modernize life in Butangen; and Gerhard Schönhauer, the German art and architecture student who has come to Butangen to supervise the dismantling and moving of the stave church to Germany.  Set in the late 1800’s in a remote part of Telemark, Mytting uses historical detail to create a world for both

his characters and his readers to inhabit.  Please join us as we journey back in time with Mytting´s characters. This class is conducted in Norwegian and includes grammar review for which we use Norsk grammatikk: Norsk som andrespråk, arbeidsbok.

Texts: Søsterklokkene by Lars Mytting and Norsk grammatikk: Norsk som andrespråk, arbeidsbok by Kirsti MacDonald.
