THIS COURSE IS ALSO OFFERED AS A DISTANCE LEARNING CLASS FOR STUDENTS AT OTHER UC CAMPUSES. This is a UC cross-campus listed course and will be taught to accommodate students from other UC campuses. We will meet on August 29, but please note that instruction using the textbook starts on September 26.
If you are not a currently registered student, you may be able to enroll via Concurrent Enrollment, UC Berkeley Extension. Please note that the Concurrent Enrollment application must be approved by the department. Approval is based on availability of space in the class; enrolled UC students on a waitlist have priority.
Prerequisites: None. Elementary Danish is open to all students without prior knowledge of Danish. 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.
