About the course

The course includes individual and group work, discussions, listening exercises, and homework. The course focuses on Chapters 1 to 5 of the book "På Vei" (2012 edition). This course begins at level A1 based on the language levels described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Sessions are purely in Norwegian from day 1, so no English knowledge is required. This means that using the language is a must from day 1, which leads to a faster progression.

After completing the course, you will be able to greet people and have very basic conversations involving everyday activities such as buying groceries and ordering in a café. You will be able to tell the time, count, and ask basic questions using simple sentences.


Completing the course

The course meets four days a week, Mondays to Thursdays, and lasts for three weeks. Each course day consists of 3 lessons of 45 minutes. The total number of lessons is 12 per week and 36 lessons for the entire course to complete one level.


Course materials

Use of textbooks and other teaching aids on levels A1-A2 (På vei 2012 edition), B1 (Stein på Stein) and B2 (Her på Berget) is mandatory. Books are not included in the price and can be purchased at our school or at most bookstores. Materials other than the text and workbooks will be used, but these will be provided by the teacher. You will be given homework based on the text and workbook that will be used on the course.


Course certificate

At the end of the course, if you completed 80% or more of the sessions and paid the course fee, you will receive an official digital course certificate.
