Norwegian Upper-Intermediate

Norwegian Upper-Intermediate is for those who want to be more independent when communicating in Norwegian. The course prepares you for a higher level test in Norwegian (the Bergen test).

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.
