September Saturday mornings are for…  coffee and conversing in Norwegian, of course! Maren Johnson, Associate Professor of Nordic Studies and Director of the Torgerson Center for Nordic Studies at Luther College, will be there to help keep the conversation lively and engaging. One enrollment gets you signed up for all three Zoom sessions and even includes a 12-oz. bag of “Vesterheim Blend," roasted by Decorah’s own Impact Coffee and delivered to your door in time for your first conversation hour. Sign up together with a Norwegian-speaking friend or plan to meet some new ones!  

Supplies: A computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

Special Instructions: When registering for the class, please make sure to use the address you'd like the coffee shipped to, and the email address you'd like the Zoom meeting invitation sent to. You will receive links to the Zoom sessions by email sometime during the week prior to the first group meeting.

Enrollment Deadline: September 2, 2020
