ENTRANCE POLICY FOR LANGUAGE COURSES
No auditing is permitted in Scandinavian language courses.
Berkeley faculty and staff members interested in participating in Scandinavian language classes must first consult the Scandinavian languages coordinator, Karen Møller at: firstname.lastname@example.org
To enroll in a Scandinavian language course, go to Concurrent Enrollment, UC Berkeley Extension.
Please be aware that UC students have enrollment preference in all UC courses. Application requested via Extension is not congruent with admission and approval for a course. Perspective Concurrent Enrollment students must attend the 1st class meeting and the instructor will determine if there is space in the course to admit CE applicants. If a class has a wait list – all UC enrolled students will be offered space in the class first, before any seats are offered to CE applicants.
(Fall only. Swedish 1B is offered in Spring.) Classes meet for three hours of instruction per week. Students will acquire basic communicative competence in all four foreign language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) within a cultural context.
Workload: About five hours of work outside of class per week, an oral and written midterm and final.
Text: Rivstart A1 + A2 (There is a textbook and exercise book)
Prerequisites: None. Elementary Swedish is open to students without prior knowledge of Swedish. The course is not open to native, near-native, or heritage speakers of any Nordic language. Course cannot be repeated without prior consent from the language coordinator.
