We offer a variety of language courses throughout the year ranging from six-week standard courses and thirteen-week semester courses, to an intensive One-Year Program. Our secret to effective teaching and student success begins with our small class size, which enables teachers to maximize their attention on the individual student while guaranteeing them a dynamic learning environment. All of our courses are conducted in the target/taught language.
Alfaskolen follows the CEFR levels when teaching Norwegian. A table is provided below to clarify how Alfaskolen courses align with the Norwegian Language Plan and CEFR Levels.
The language requirement in order to apply for permanent residence and/or Norwegian citizenship is a passed exam at A2 level.
