Norwegian Adult Virtual Class | Concordia Language Villages

Norwegian Adult Virtual Class | Ages 18+

Skogfjorden Virtual Village Classes offer a real-time interactive small group setting for language and cultural learning for villagers 18 and older. These hands-on experiences follow a roadmap for twelve weeks and take villagers on a journey to increased Norwegian language proficiency.

Beginners and elementary-level villagers will follow the På Vei textbook. This is the primary Norwegian language textbook used for teaching new immigrants and students in Norway. The latest edition has beautiful pictures and graphics that will be used as a jumping-off point for discussions about language and culture. There are also updated dialogues that better reflect the people, culture and workforce in Norway.

Intermediate students will follow the latest edition of Stein på Stein. This book follows På Vei and continues to expand on cultural, social and historical topics that are important to understanding both Norway and Norwegian. The Intermediate One group will start at the beginning of Stein på Stein, while the Intermediate Two group will start in the middle.

Asynchronous activities for villagers to complete at home will be provided to extend learning.

We are currently offering beginning through intermediate Norwegian but look forward to expanding into higher levels over time. Please sign up for the class that best fits your level (European Framework Assessment Levels). If you are unsure of your level, feel free to email elsebet.skogfjorden@gmail.com to determine which class will be best for you. 

Some complex global topics of cultural relevance may be discussed in English with references to target-language culture(s).

Staff to villager ratio of 1:8, on average. Sessions meet twice per week for 60 minutes over Zoom.
