Intensive B2-1 is the first of three courses in our advanced level of Norwegian offered at Alfaskolen. The course is intended for those who have successfully completed their work with "Stein på Stein" or an equivalent book, have a regular, working knowledge of Norwegian grammar, and wish to improve their performance in Norwegian.

 

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 "Her på Berget". Participants of this course begin at level B2 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 also means that you must use Norwegian from day 1, which leads to a faster progression.
 

After completing the course, you will be able to speak more fluently using more advanced phrases, verb conjugations, and descriptions. You will use more complex sentence structures and use more sophisticated language. Transactions and conversations will be easier and you will more easily understand and speak Norwegian. You will begin to vary your word choice due to the broader vocabulary you developed. 

 

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) is 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 workbooks will be used, but these will be provided by the teacher. You 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.

Course price

NOK 4 760,- per course level.
