About us

Alfaskolen has since 2006 organised 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 an officially certified and approved provider of Norwegian 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 accommodating 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 methods.

Our courses

We offer a variety of Norwegian courses throughout the year ranging from two-week intensive / four-week standard 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 maximise 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 in 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
