Norwegian Intermediate

Norwegian Intermediate is for those who want to be more independent when communicating in Norwegian. The course is on level B1 and prepares you for Norwegian Test A2-B1.

Language teaching is undertaken using a communicative method. Participants are challenged 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.
