These are practical lessons to improve your conversational ability, pronunciation, and grammar in daily conversation, and are especially helpful for those who have difficulties with spoken Norwegian.

 

About conversation courses

For each session, you will receive a controversial article or "hot topic" which can be discussed further with friends or co-workers outside of these sessions. Working with current events will also improve knowledge of Norwegian society. You will receive the session subjects beforehand so that you may also prepare vocabulary before joining the discussions.

You need to be on level B1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)
 

Completing the course

You can complete this level as a whole (8 weeks) or in two parts (2 x 4 weeks). Sessions are held twice per week, either on Monday/Wednesday OR on Tuesday/Thursday. Each session consists of 2 lesson hours. Each lesson hour lasts 45 minutes.
