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.
Flexibility and material
Learning a new language
To Fast paced for me
The course was simple in understanding and more emphasis on grammar content
The course was good but can be taken little bit slower pace
The Lingu course structure was good
the friendly atmosphere
the class was a lit bit crowded at the begining
Easy to learn, online extra materials are useful
The energy in the class
It's tooooo fast...I wish it would be a bit slow. Difficult to cope up with work :(
I need to revise a lot, hopefully I will be well prepared for A2
Klasserommet var litt fylt
The way the course was taught
I feel like it was too much information and there was a clear and concise plan for the course.
It would have been good to have the opportunity to speak more in Norwegian between course mates
Teacher made grammar interesting ans easier to understand
Sprak cafe and online classes Were on the same day and time
Overall very good experience with Lingu and having no hesitation to refer it to others
The teacher and her way of teaching. The course pattern and the material.
a bit intensive
The course teacher - Benedicte has an unique way of teacher. I would prefer her as my next level teacher.
Lærerne er flinke å foklare selv om veldig intenst og vanskelig.
I am opening a new world and starting to be able to communicate to norwegian people.
I like the way they teach Norwegian, because it makes me understand norwegian more, gotten more vocabulary and made me confident enough to speak Norwegian. :D
Nothing came to mind.
Keep up the good works to help people learn Nowegian
I can practise speaking a lot in the class. Also Mary tried to explain in Norwegian which help us improve listening skill as well
I start the class right after finish working, so it's quite tired
The speaking cafe can be held in Saturday
The lessons clarified the book.
I did not like the time the course is given. I think it is too late.
The teacher made the class interactively good and you wouldn't think you like to miss a class because you know you would learn a new thing. I can measure my transition of understanding with the way the teacher (Marianne) presents the materials, the open candor to answer and relate the answer in the right proportion. The sentence structure, verbs, negation, adjectives and grammatical elements and others are the the things I took in the A1 class. I am grateful.
I like the course and I look forward to A2 class
For me the attending the class and doing the online materials and the also the free webnars, with the flexibility it provides, makes at a great match. Thank you .
Interactive and everything was well explained by the teacher
Very interesting way of learning
The tutor encouraged us to participate. He included everyone not just a few students.
I thought it was all good.
I really enjoy having different modes of learning available and the sense of momentum
The class vibe
Sometimes it can feel a bit rushed but overall it's a great experience.
