LC and LING Courses for Spring 2018

In addition to language-specific course offerings, the school offers courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels which are not specific to a particular language. These courses, with the LC or LING designator, cover more than one language or the content varies from language to language in different semesters.

LC 596 READING SCANDINAVIAN LANGUAGE
Instructor: Prof. Sundquist, John
 “Reading Knowledge of Scandinavian” provides an elementary reading knowledge of the Scandinavian languages in one semester.  This approach is facilitated by a relatively simple grammar and a vocabulary with many similarities to the Germanic languages, including English. Initially, we will focus on Norwegian while in the last portion of the class, we will work with Danish and Swedish materials, concentrating on the commonalities between all three languages.  The aim of the course is to help students learn to read Scandinavian texts with the help of a dictionary.   Although the focus of the course is on reading, we will also work on simple conversation and pronunciation to help with vocabulary retention.  This course will be particularly beneficial to grad students wishing to fulfill their MA/Ph.D. language requirement; a passing score on the language exam at the end of the semester may serve as fulfillment of this requirement.

LC 596 SECOND LANGUAGE SPEECH
Instructor: Prof. Dmitrieva, Olga
