(Fall only. Norwegian 1B is offered in Spring.)
This is a cross campus listed on-line course and will be taught with the quarter schedule to accommodate students from other UC campuses. UC Berkeley students will meet with the instructor in class on 8/26 but instruction begins formally on 9/28 when other UC campuses start their Fall Quarter. UCB students will participate in this class in the classroom, enrolled students from other campuses via Zoom, a conferencing / distance teaching platform.
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 four to five hours of work outside of class per week, and usually a written midterm and an oral and written final.
Course text: Sett i gang 1
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 other Nordic languages.
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.
