Workload: About five hours of work outside of class per week, an oral and written midterm and final.
Text: Sett i gang 1 (Aarsvold and Lie) to be ordered on Amazon.
Instructions will be given by the instructor at the beginning of the semester.
Prerequisites: None. Elementary Norwegian is open to students without prior knowledge of Norwegian. 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.
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.
