This is a digital intensive course that runs over the first three weeks of the summer session. The course provides a systematic review of Norwegian grammar where the Norwegian language is partly placed in a contrastive context. Emphasis is placed on topics that are perceived as problematic when you do not have Norwegian as your first language. The course also works indirectly with Norwegian vocabulary and idiomatics. Development of students' own language skills is also key.
