Students come to our program for a wide variety of reasons and from diverse backgrounds, but they all have a love of learning and a deep interest in Norwegian language and culture. They are of all ages and skill levels, from as young as 12 on up. We have men and women who have never spoken a word of Norwegian, to those who studied in college or lived in Norway and want to freshen up their skills. Some students may be planning a trip to Norway and would like to communicate with their relatives. Some plan to study long term in Norway, and some simply enjoy the challenge and joy of learning something completely new and/or that connects them to their cultural and ethnic heritage.

If you are in doubt as to what class you should take based on your skill level, please contact our Program Administrator, Krista Schweppe, and she will be happy to help you determine where you belong.
