Norwegian B1-1 is the first of three courses in our intermediate level of Norwegian offered at Alfaskolen. The course is intended for those who have successfully completed their norwegian studies on level A2 or work with "På Vei" book. At this level of instruction, participants will establish a working knowledge of Norwegian grammar.

 


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 "Stein på Stein".Participants of this course will start level B1 based of the language levels as described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Sessions are taught in Norwegian from day 1, so no English knowledge is required. This means that using the language is a must from day 1, which leads to a faster progression.
 

After completing the course, participants will be able to vary sentence structure by using phrases of time and reason. They will be aware of how to use adjectives in the correct way to describe and compare actions and things. They will feel more comfortable having conversations due to their developing vocabulary, and will be able to express their opinions about such topics as education, family life, and personal economy.
 

Completing the course

Sessions are held twice a week on mondays and wednesdays, tuesdays and thursdays, or fridays and saturdays. Each session consists of 3 lesson hours for a total of 36 lesson hours. The course is about six weeks long with a total of 12 lessons. Each lesson hour is 45 minutes.
 

Course materials

Use of textbooks and other teaching aids on the course are mandatory. Books are not included in the price and can be purchased at school or at most bookstores.
