Norwegian Language Classes

Norwegian language instruction is offered by the Norwegian House Society and our qualified instructors. There will be a mix of online Zoom classes and in-person classes at the Centre in Burnaby. Please see below for details.

Adult Classes

Note: We are no longer accepting new students for Fall Term 2022. If you have prior Norwegian language experience and would like to register for Winter Term 2023, please email NorwegianClassesSCC@gmail.com.

Adult language classes for beginner, lower intermediate, upper intermediate and advanced levels all take place one evening per week from 7-9 pm. Classes focus on speaking, listening, reading, and writing, along with discussion of Norwegian life, culture, and history. The aim is to move students from complete beginner to fluency as you progress from one level to the next. Taking language classes gives students a year’s membership in the Norwegian House Society and is a gateway to the many cultural offerings at the Centre.
