This intermediate workbook, like the other materials in the Norsk, nordmenn og Norge series, regards communication as the primary goal of language learning. Experience has shown that students need to pass through a period of meaningful structural practice as they develop their communication skills. The workbook aims to provide that practice in psychologically realistic and useful ways, combining entertaining activities with more traditional exercises.
Toward these ends, the workbook features:
•an extensive overview of the basics of Norwegian grammar, providing a ready reference throughout the course
•a thorough review of elementary Norwegian vocabulary and grammar, allowing students whose preparation in the language differs to share a common knowledge base
•Hvem er du? sections that encourage the learner to personalize the material
•Litt av hvert sections that provide short summaries of the anthology’s reading passages (lesestykker) while reviewing common problems with vocabulary and grammar
•crossword puzzles and cartoons.
Norsk, nordmenn og Norge: Arbeidsbok (Workbook) is a companion to the Norsk, nordmenn og Norge: Antologi (Anthology) and Lærerveiledning (Teacher’s Manual).
Audio Companion to Norsk, nordmenn og Norge 1 is the audio component designed to complement the textbook and workbook of the beginning Norwegian language series Norsk, nordmenn og Norge 1. The audio companion supplements the language textbook, Norsk, nordmenn og Norge 1, by Kathleen Stokker and Odd Haddal, by featuring listening exercises tied to each chapter of the textbook. The audio companion also contains listening exercises and dictations related to each chapter of the beginning Norwegian language workbook Workbook for Norsk, nordmenn og Norge 1 by Louis E. Janus. The final four tracks of the audio companion are dedicated to pronunciation exercises covered in the workbook.
In the golden age of polar exploration (from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s), many an expedition set out to answer the big question—was the Arctic a continent, an open ocean beyond a barrier of ice, or an ocean covered with ice? No one knew, for the ice had kept its secret well; ships trying to penetrate it all failed, often catastrophically. Norway’s charismatic scientist-explorer Fridtjof Nansen, convinced that it was a frozen ocean, intended to prove it in a novel if risky way: by building a ship capable of withstanding the ice, joining others on an expedition, then drifting wherever it took them, on a relentless one-way journey into discovery and fame . . . or oblivion. Ice Ship is the story of that extraordinary ship, the Fram, from conception to construction, through twenty years of three epic expeditions, to its final resting place as a museum. It is also the story of the extraordinary men who steered the Fram over the course of 84,000 miles: on a three-year, ice-bound drift, finding out what the Arctic really was; in a remarkable four-year exploration of unmapped lands in the vast Canadian Arctic; and on a two–year voyage to Antarctica, where another famous Norwegian explorer, Roald Amundsen, claimed the South Pole. Ice Ship will appeal to all those fascinated with polar exploration, maritime adventure, and wooden ships, and will captivate readers of such books as The Endurance, In the Heart of the Sea, and The Last Place on Earth. With more than 100 original photographs, the book brings the Fram to life and light.
This intermediate-level anthology offers a lively collection of writingsfor students learning Norwegian. Introductions to selected Norwegian authors, vocabulary lists, and maps promote discussions of Norwegian history, culture, geography and literature.
