The teaching consists of lectures (in Norwegian/Danish or English if needed) which introduce the hieroglyphic script and the use of study aids like dictionaries and sign lists. Then follows a basic introduction to word and sentence construction in Middle Egyptian which should enable the student to translate simple text passages. The teaching includes translation exercises from Egyptian to Danish (or English) and from Danish (or English) into Egyptian.
