Scandinavia House promotes the importance of language learning in exploring Nordic culture through classes offered by NYU’s Department of Foreign Languages, Translation, and Interpreting. Traditionally held at Scandinavia House, classes in the fall of 2020 will now be held via remote learning.
This intermediate-level language course emphasizes conversational Norwegian. In order to take this course, you should already be familiar with some grammar concepts such as the simple past tense and present perfect; secondary numbers; the indefinite, definite, and plural forms of masculine, feminine, and neuter nouns; and the conjugation of adjectives. You also should be familiar with Norwegian sentence structure, including “inversion.”
This class builds upon vocabulary learned in Levels I and II. Throughout the course, basic grammar will be reviewed and opportunities will be given to practice these concepts.

Scandinavia House sees language as inextricably linked to culture. Partnering with the Center for Applied Liberal Arts (CALA) at New York University School of Professional Studies reinforces this link as part of Scandinavia House’s mission. NYU CALA offers courses in twenty languages including Danish, Norwegian and Swedish. Finnish and Icelandic can be offered upon request. Whether supporting Scandinavia House members in connecting with their roots through learning the language of their ancestors or family members, deepening New Yorkers’ cultural understanding, or facilitating travel through competence in other languages, courses encourage exploration.
The courses are offered on a semester basis at Scandinavia House. Levels range from beginner to intermediate and advanced. The department has the capacity to open high levels and special sections should there be a demand for such.
CALA is a national leader in foreign language instruction and all its instructors are experienced in teaching their respective languages to adults.
