Norwegian language courses

We offer Norwegian language courses for adults with a background of higher education. Our courses are intensive and have a fast progression. Spring courses will be open for registration in mid October, starting end of January. Fall courses will be open for registration in mid april, starting end of August.

Our language courses aim to provide  skills in speaking, reading and  writing Norwegian. They also give an introduction to Norwegian culture. The  teaching methods are communicative,  and students will be challenged to use  the language actively. The syllabus  follows the standardized objectives of the European Framework of  language, and the curricula follows  the national “Læreplan i norsk og  samfunnskunnskap for voksne  innvandrere.”

Our language courses are non-credit  courses. An attendance of 85 % is  required for completed course. A  certificate is provided after the course  is finished.
