Sett i gang is an introductory Norwegian curriculum designed for use in the first year of university courses, the first two years of community education and high school classes, or for self-study. Brimming with colorful images of Norway and numerous activities, the curriculum engages students in exploring contemporary Norwegian language and culture from the very first chapter.
The materials are carefully sequenced and organized around 10 main themes relevant to learners of all ages, providing an interesting and varied context for the students as they learn to understand texts in Norwegian and communicate with others both in the classroom and in the larger Norwegian community. Through the lens of Norwegian culture, students learn to view the world from multiple perspectives, bringing them new insights about their own culture and language as well as about Norway and its role in the world.
