Norwegian for beginners

Norwegian for beginners is for those who want a thorough, practical introduction to the language. The aim is to quickly be able to get by in simple everyday situations.

Language teaching is undertaken using a communicative method. Participants  are encouraged to use the language actively in practical, everyday situations, with plenty of opportunities to practice and repeat. The aim is that participants quickly gain confidence using the language.

Folkeuniversitetet is an officially recognized provider of tuition. Hours undertaken in our Norwegian courses are approved by the UDI in applications for a permanent residence permit.
