Intensive course on level A2 takes you through the second half of the På Vei books (edition 2012). In short time, you will learn vocabulary and expressions, basic grammar and pronunciation. The course is intensive, meaning that you need to estimate enough time to work both with homework and new vocabulary on a daily basis. The course is based on group work, individual assignments, discussions, lectures, and homework.

About the course

Attending courses every day from Monday to Thursday allows you to gradually build up a greater knowledge of the Norwegian language by

  • working regularly with various texts
  • using new vocabulary in everyday life and
  • applying grammatical structures

All this with guidance from a professional and qualified teacher.

The purpose of learning Norwegian every day is to give you the opportunity to practice the Norwegian language and feel confident when using Norwegian outside the school.

Classes are purely in Norwegian from the beginning, and therefore no English language skills are required. In this way, you are forced to use the language from day one and you will see a faster progression.

During the regular sessions, students will focus on studying texts, vocabulary and grammar. They will be gradually introduced to new topics and grammatical rules. Students have one hour of practical Norwegian every day, focusing on one aspect of the learning process. Practical Norwegian lessons vary from day to day from conversation, self study, project work, and language lab. Conversation sessions focus on pronunciation, and the teacher is present to correct and guide students through conversations. For self study, students are split up into small groups to work independently with various tasks such as grammar, texts, etc. Project work focuses on working on various projects in small groups, in order to improve everyday Norwegian. Language lab lets students work individually in the school's language lab in order to improve their listening skills.
