During the course:

Your online teacher will contact you within one week after the registration and after the course fee is paid. 

The course is a combination of self-study with the digital learning resource Basar and 6 Skype meetings with your private teacher.

During the Skype meetings, you can practice new vocabulary, test new grammar and ask questions. The meetings are in Norwegian from day 1, so no English knowledge is required.

In addition, you will receive feedback from your private teacher on the writing exercises and various tasks in Basar.

You decide the course progression, but usually participants utilize about three hours per week over twelve weeks. If you want a faster course progression, you can use six hours per week for six weeks. We do not recommend a faster progression than this to get the full benefit of the course.


Equipment you need

  • An online device (laptop, tablet, smart phone)

  • Skype (basic account)

  • Optional, but recommended: Headphones with microphone and web camera
