PostSubject: [Norvegian] School - Litt. Hist. Geo   Fri Jun 04, 2010 2:40 pm

In this topic, I would like you to talk about the school in your country, in order that my characters sound real if I write some part at school or if I talk about homework. And that's interesting to know what we learn in other countries.

1. First, I would like to know in which grad we are at which age ? And how you call the schools ? because there is different organization in the different countries.

2. I would like to know what is your program at school for Norvegian class or Litterature ? Maybe you can copy me the program of you Litterature book for me to see the autors that you study or the book that your teachers ask you to read. You can do that for your grad, and hopefully many fans will come from differents grads

3. I would like to know the same for History.

4. I would like to know the same for Geography.

5. What are the languages that you can learn at school ?

1. you are 13 years when you start Junior High in Norway, first year in JH is called 8th grade, you are around 14 when you enter the 9th grade, and 15 when you're in 10th grade.
you only go to JH for 3 years (8th, 9th and 10th grade), then you can choose if you wanna go High School, there is many choices when it comes to what kinda schools and lines/classes you want to go to, you can for example go to a design line, or a music line, or an sports line, that is basically normal school only with subjects within f.ex. music or sports.
in first year of HS you are 16 years old, 17 in second year, and 18/19 in your last year. High School as well as Junior High is only 3 years. Together you go 13 years in school (7 in elementary school). These 13 school years you get for free, you have to pay to get further education in other schools...

2. We don't have the subject 'literature', but we've read books like 'Q&A' and 'Sumitra's Story' in English... but in 3rd year of HS I think we can choose to take English with Literature or something...

3. We have History in 1st year at HS (and probably at JH too, but can't remember much from then) we study suff like ancient Norway and old Egypt history, and basically history...

4. I'm sorry, but I don't really remember much from Geography, but we only had it first year of HS...

5. French, German, English and Spanish.

Ah cool. I found some other name on wikipediia ^^

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bj%C3%B8rnstjerne_Bj%C3%B8rnson

Quote :
Il a été présenté comme l'un des quatre plus grands écrivains de l'histoire de la littérature norvégienne avec Henrik Ibsen, Jonas Lie et Alexander Kielland par la maison d'éditions Gyldendal. Il a écrit les paroles de l'hymne national de Norvège. Il reçut le prix Nobel de littérature en 1903.

He's one of the 4 greatest writer of Norwegian Litterature ^^ with Henrik Ibsen, Jonas Lie and Alexander Kielland.

Now let's hope I can find a book translated in french or english...
