Swedish classes begin in April

Can you say “tack så mycket?”

Gammelgården Museum can help with that.

Swedish classes are offered in the spring and fall.

This year three levels will be taught: beginning, progressive, and intermediate.

All three classes will be held on Monday evenings in the Välkommen Hus, upstairs in the Passage Room.

Beginning Swedish is for those who have no idea what the “å” sounds like, but would like to greet the hundreds of Swedish visitors who come to the St. Croix Valley each year. This class will meet at 7:30 p.m.

New for 2013, Intermediate Swedish is for those who have taken the beginning class, have a general knowledge of pronunciation, and would like to work toward conversational Swedish. This class will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Progressing Swedish is for those who can converse in basic Swedish but would like to improve, practice and perfect their Swedish. This class will begin at 6:30 p.m.
