The Scandinavian Language Institute, a Washington State non-profit corporation and tax-exempt organization, is located in the Seattle Community of Ballard at the Nordic Heritage Museum, 3014 NW 67th St.. Other classes meet in Edmonds.
The Scandinavian Language Institute gladly welcomes students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin to attend classes.
Fall quarter classes start the week of October 5th and runs 9 weeks. All our class offerings are posted! Unfortunately our Icelandic teacher Margret retired last year and we haven't found a new teacher so Icelandic will not be offered this fall.
NEW FALL CLASSES START NOW! - Pass the word about this unique cultural experience. Danish, Norwegian and Swedish language classes are on now! LIKE US ON FACEBOOK - Scandinavian Language Institute.
As always, the Scandinavian Language Institute will be hosting two Nordisk Film Klubb events featuring films from Scandinavia. One is planned for October 29th and another on November 24th. The annual JULEFEST Celebration is set for Sunday, December 6th.
You are encouraged to help us PASS THE WORD about our upcoming language session and other programs of the Scandinavian Language Institute. We count on your willingness to tell others about this community based cultural program. Thank you in advance for you support!
The 36th annual celebration of JULEFEST was held Sunday evening, December 7th. We began with a potluck dessert hour in the lower social hall of Ballard First Lutheran Church. We continued with a musical program in the sanctuary and finished by dancing around the tree in Haavik Hall. We had great attendance at this annual event. Thank you to all who participated and attended!
