Norwegian Language Classes
We are delighted to resume in-person Norwegian language classes at Norway House on January 19. Classes will meet every Thursday at 6 p.m. (beginning), 7 p.m. (intermediate) and 8 p.m. (advanced). Lodge members pay a discounted fee of $15/class. Non-members’ fee is $20/class. Beginning and intermediate students will use the same textbooks used before the pandemic interruption: Påvei for beginners and Stein på stein for intermediate. Materials for the advanced class will primarily be articles distributed by the instructor.
Our wonderful instructor, Anne-Grethe Phillips, is returning to teach the classes. Anne-Grethe is a native Norwegian speaker who has many years of experience as a certified Norwegian/English teacher. She was born and raised in Norway, where she lived until she moved to Virginia eight years. ago. She is a graduate of the University of Oslo and has worked as a high school teacher in both Norway and the US. She is now working as a language instructor in Washington, DC. Anne-Grethe is looking forward to helping everyone in her classes enjoy their studies. Welcome back, Anne-Grethe!
