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 Norwegian Instructor Evelyn Galstad. 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.
One enrollment gets you signed up for all eight Zoom sessions on Mondays, February 8 to March 29 (7:00 PM - 8:00 PM CT). Enrollment also includes a class workbook and a study treat ($20 value). Bli med! (Come join!)
If you have completed the Norwegian Language Starter Session, consider taking the Continuing Beginning Norwegian Class with Maren Johnson.
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 workbook 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.

About the Instructor
Evelyn Galstad, or Eddy as she is known to many, is an instructor of Norwegian language with 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 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 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 at Vesterheim and cannot wait for the adventures ahead!
