Project Description

Our students come to training with little or no experience with Norwegian. Over the course of 6 months, they attain fluency. A large part of that process is finding opportunities to speak and use the language. Interns have been an invaluable resource to our students in the past, setting up weekly and bi-weekly skype sessions with students to talk on a large variety of topics of interest to you as well as them. It will give you the opportunity to learn more about the Foreign Service and the State Department and ask any questions you may have. You can be creative with the project by creating videos and other activities for the students to use to improve their listening skills and serve as a guest speaker for the class.
