Which languages do we teach?
NordStudeo offers courses and individual lessons in Germanic languages – Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch and Danish – and also in Finnish.
Swedish is a North Germanic language spoken by approximately 11 million people. Mainly in Sweden and partly in Finland, as well as on the Åland islands. Swedish originates from Old Norse and is currently the most widespread Germanic language. It is close to Danish and Norwegian both from grammatical as well as from lexical point of view, since they belong to the group of North Germanic languages.
Dutch belongs to the group of Germanic languages and is spoken by approximately 21 million people (mainly Dutch and Flemish). A variant of the language spoken in Belgium is unofficially referred to as Flemish. The accepted academic term for the language is Netherlandic, although it is often called ‘’Hollandic’’ due to the widespread name of ‘’Holland’’ for the Kingdom of The Netherlands, which includes the provinces of North and South Holland
Norwegian is a North Germanic language. It is the official language in Norway and is spoken by approximately 5 million people. It has two official variants in terms of writing – Bokmål and Nynorsk. Bokmål is accepted as the main literary language and is used by about 90% of the population of the country.
Danish is a North Germanic language. It is spoken by approximately 6 million people in Denmark, Southern Schleswig, The Faroe Islands and Greenland. The pronunciation is unique, but the language is close to Norwegian and Swedish since they are all a part of the North Germanic languages.
Finnish (Suomi) is a Finno-Ugric language. It is one of the two official languages in Finland (alongside with Swedish). It is an agglutinating and declension language, which changes the noun and verb according to their role in the sentence.
