Recreation & Leisure - An Introduction to Norway, Land of the Midnight Sun, and Electric Cars!
Did you know that Norway has the second longest coastline in the world? That Norway is a young country, at 114 years old? That Norway leads the world in electric car ownership? A third of new cars sold there last year were electric. And that the world's top chess player, is a Norwegian? This class is perfect for anyone planning to travel to Norway, or for those curious about this modern, Viking society. The course will offer basic language phrases, travel tips, culture tips, food information, and a brief overview about Norway´s system and economy; a look at immigration, and the latest news. Instructor Berit Mason is half Norwegian, and has visited her family there, no less than 25 times. You will learn about how Norwegians celebrate "Jul" Christmas, what they do on holidays, and other fun facts about those people who are "born on skis".
