Norwegian courses in Oslo


About Us

Alfaskolen has since 2006 organized language courses for individuals and businesses, and has grown into a major player in the local market. We use modern teaching materials and a variety of interactive teaching methods, leading to innovative and fun ways to learn languages. Alfaskolen is a well known provider of courses from beginner to advanced levels and offers small classes in modern premises located in downtown Oslo, as well as a high quality learning environment consisting of students from around the world. Alfaskolen AS is a partner school of Dutch First BV in Utrecht, The Netherlands . Both schools use the same teaching method.

Our courses

We offer a variety of Norwegian courses throughout the year ranging from six-week evening courses and ten-week intensive courses, to our intensive One-Year Program. Our secret to effective teaching and student success begins with our small class size. Our course size ranges from six to sixteen participants, which enable teachers to maximize their attention on the individual student while guaranteeing them a dynamic learning environment. Our courses progress at a fast pace and require familiarity with the latin alphabet. Courses are taught in the same language that is being taught and suit students on track 3 (spor 3).

Our teachers

We selectively recruit qualified teachers, linguists, and language specialists as educators so we can ensure the highest possible standard of instruction. We have an international team with teaching experience in Norway as well as other countries. Our main goal is to help you reach your goals and give you the opportunity to learn in an agreeable and friendly atmosphere
