Fast-track beginner Norwegian course

Lingu’s fast-track Norwegian language courses are designed for adults who want to learn to speak and understand the Norwegian language and who need more flexibility in their training. The course will get you started on the journey to master the Norwegian language.

Hva likte du mest ved dette kurset?

Flexibility time-wise, interactivity, access to all materials, variety of tasks, short videos (and possible to change speed when needed)

Hva likte du ikke ved dette kurset?

The clarification of the requirements needed for getting a certificate has been unclear to me from the start. Also sometimes it seems that a lot of work has been done but the progress bar hasn't moved forward:) The percentage bar moves forward very slowly (perhaps an idea to split it to 2 - A1-1 and A1-2 - to get more sense of achievement).

The teacher (Ann-Magritt) has great teaching skills, she is also very humble and patient with the students and deserves all of our gratitude. I noticed a lot of effort from her, she is there before us and leaves the school very late and still she is available to send us material to study and answers her emails. 5* teacher!!
