Adults participate in speaking and increasing amounts of reading and writing as levels advance. Some fun cooking or craft evenings may be arranged. Instructors present material suitable for a range of skill levels in each lesson and will help set students into the most appropriate course. Children participate in speaking, reading, singing, folk dancing, games, cooking, and dramatic events. They also perform when possible at Norwegian House Society events. The children’s class will be split into age groups depending on enrolment and teacher availability.
