Hoping to travel to Norway someday? Want to connect with Norwegian friends or family in their native language? We’ve got you covered! Start your Norwegian-language learning or refresh stale language skills this fall with instructor Evelyn Galstad, graduate of the Nordic Studies program at Luther College. During the eight-week session, we’ll cover the basics of grammar and vocabulary to get you ready to connect with other Norwegian speakers.
The weekly class meetings will happen on Zoom for an active, conversation-based hour. If you like, you’ll get activities to extend your learning between class meetings. There will also be opportunities to connect with Luther College students who will be beginning their study of Norwegian language with you.
One enrollment gets you signed up for all eight Zoom sessions (7-8pm CT) and also includes a class workbook and a study treat. Tuesdays (December 1, 8, 15, 22, January 5, 12, 19, 26).

Evelyn Galstad, or Eddy as she is known to many, is an instructor of Norwegian language with the Vesterheim. She is a recent graduate of Luther College, where she studied Vocal Performance and Nordic Studies. Last spring, Eddy worked closely with Professor Maren Johnson in an internship focused on curriculum development for the Vesterheim’s after-school program, Norsk Skole. Her interest in Norwegian language and culture started young, beginning with her family ties to Norway and then deepened as she started attending Skogfjorden, the Norwegian village at the Concordia Language Villages in Bemidji, Minnesota. For the past four summers, Eddy has taught Norwegian at Skogfjorden and has loved her time there. She is so excited to continue teaching this fall and cannot wait for the adventures ahead!
