Group interaction and friendly behavior of Teacher
Availability of Online course
moro, attraktiv, og lett å bli forstått
forklaringen på materialet er for rask
den vanskeligste delen er å starte den, men når den allerede er startet, går det lettere
Teacher needs to spend some more time in each lesson. Few students are already know the language hence they give the answers to teachers question and course went fast. But person like me who is totally new to the language is falling back. Please take some action on this.
The interaction with other classmates and group dynamics
I think we needed more homework
I will continue with A2
Friendly environment, polite instructor, less number of students, focus and attention of instructor towards students, group activities, students involvement, frequent online classes, daily updates and material provided.
So far for A1 level, there are no such things which I didn't like.
Veldig bra :)
The class was crowded
På dette kurset var mange nye ord og ny informasjon. Men disse informasjonen blir presentert på en interaktiv, morsom og enkel måte.
The classroom was engaging and atmosphere was full of joy.
The most important part was everyone was participating in some or the other ways.
There is nothing I can mention at this point.
Excellent experience so far with Lingu. I am looking forward for the same in A2.
Jeg likker Kari.Kari forklarer Norwegian på en enkel måte og Bære hjalp meg veldig.Takk
Jeg er glad takk
How the material is prepared

Very active class environment
Over all best
Everything was so good. Really efficient.
Thank you Ingrid, you are so good!
The interaction with other students to make the practical exercises.
At the moment anything. Everything is good.
I am happy to learn a New language.
Fast track and friendly
Ability to speak freely Norwegian a lot and a good teacher
Not so many obligatory home tasks which are necessary for me to force myself into learning
More home exercises and less pauses. Takk=)
Very nice energetic and good group/social bonding
I unfortunately did not have much time to spend on the courses outside of the contact hours -- I think I would have gotten much more out of it if I were able to attend these.
