The Old Norse depicted the end of the world as a massive battle between the giants and the gods; the Æsir and the Vanir; utgaard and the inngaard. "Ragnarok" as it's known in Norwegian, was the ultimate reset button for life as we know it today.
In Netflix's third feature series from Norway (after Lillyhammer and Hjem til jul), the quiet, unsuspecting, fictional fjord town of Edda, Hordaland is about to be the epicenter of the next Norse battle for humanity. When an upstanding young man named Magne moves into town with his family, things start getting strange. He finds he has gained incredible strength, he no longer needs his glasses, and he has an incredible urge to save the earth from the toxic waste coming from the mysterious Jutul factories.
This course is perfect for those who like a challenging but forgiving space to spend time exploring spoken Norwegian. we'll review portions of the script each week, and we’ll read summaries of each episode with key words. We’ll also use the film to delve into some advanced grammar and usage in Norwegian.
Culturally, we’ll learn more together about environmental conservation in Norway and relevant Norse myths. Join us for an exciting show and a fun morning discussion.
