    Course Info


    Each class will have max 15 students and we are utilizing the Cappelen’s “På Vei” and “Stein på Stein” book sets as our primary teaching material. Please contact us if you need assistance with ordering.


    The courses are intensive and there will be given adequate homework for the students to reach the required competency of the beginner and intermediate levels.


    At the end of each level we will administer a level test before taking registrations for the next level.


    We do not issue any kind of diploma or certification, the only valid certificate of Norwegian proficiency is your test result from the official language tests held by Skills Norway or Bergenstesten held by Folkeuniversitetet. Both tests are only held in Norway at specific times.


    We highly suggest using a laptop or a tablet with a stable internet connection for the online class (minimum 1.5 Mbps up and down). We are using the Zoom platform for facilitating the lessons, details on how to install and use the platform will be sent to you once you register

    Norsk language course is based on the ”Common European Framework of Reference for Languages” and teaching methods from the Official Adult Learning Centre in Norway. Classes will primarily be held in English and Norwegian.

    We should also be well within the recommended hours to achieve beginner level proficiency, which is 60-80 hours (homework included) per level. This estimation of time does not take the category of the students in consideration. Filipino students would mostly fall within what we define as track 2, students with a standard level of education and minimal experiences in learning other languages, and progress is estimated to surpass the general recommended hours.

    For those of you who are registering for level A1, no previous knowledge of Norwegian is required, A1 is aimed at complete beginners. To register for A2 we expect you to pass the A1 final test at the end of the semester. For more information about what the different levels entails please download and read the curriculums below:

    We also offer 1-on-1 and pair tutoring to those of you who do not have the opportunity to attend our classes. Estimated time to complete level A1 doing tutoring is 25 hours or less. There will also be more focus on pronunciation and conversation, utilizing more varied teaching material. We can also customize the material dependant on the student`s needs and wishes.
