Intensive B1-1 is the first of three courses in our intermediate level of Norwegian offered at Alfaskolen. The course is intended for those who have successfully completed their Norwegian studies on level A2 or work with "På Vei" book. At this level of instruction, you will establish a working knowledge of Norwegian grammar.

 

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 "Stein på Stein".Participants of this course will start level B1 based on the language levels described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Sessions are purely in Norwegian, 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 vary sentence structure by using phrases of time and reason. You will be aware of how to use adjectives in the correct way to describe and compare actions and things. You will feel more comfortable having conversations due to your expanded vocabulary and will be able to express your opinions about such topics as education, family life, and personal economy.

 

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), B1 (Stein på Stein) and B2 (Her på Berget) are 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 work books will be used, but these will be provided by the teacher. Participants 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.
