My teacher, she eplain very well everything
i don„t have any unconviences
In general teachers, material and live lessons are good. Teachers resolve any doubt. Kari is an excellent teacher, very professional.
Even though Saira is good teacher, I always have bad luck because my time is not considered when I take the full hour. I am not sure if there is a problem in the system.
Also, it is not possible to download the material. It would be good to have it to consult afterwards.
good vocabulary and chance to speak norwegian
contents could be better
Jeg fått en veldig god introduksjon til norsk
jeg likte dette kurset.
I enjoyed the teacher, class size, and positive learning environment.
Only twice week.
It would be helpful to have a few extra classes for grammar in addition to the regular coursework.
Learning by playing, detailed explanations made it dynamic and interesting.
It was an option
I didn’t attend the evening classes
Undestandable information about norwegian language basics.
Everything is great.
The emphasis given on Grammer and mix of Norge and english while conducting kurset
Some more classroom session of alteast one hour a week to listen and understand Norwegian from Instructors and more visuals in the course.
I would prefer if Instructor Benedicta continues for A2 course as she knows the where the students level is and will help in improving skills in A2.
The interaction with other students
Flexible time for self-study, flexible times for virtual classroom classes, course materials, games and quizes, breakout sessions with one or two people..
Can't think of anything
Jeg kan lære norsk hvor jeg vil og når jeg vil. Jeg liker det mest om dette kurset.
I kan ikke tenke noe som jeg likte ikke ved dette kurset.
Dere at Lingu gjør fantastisk jobb og jeg sier - Tusen takk!
In house classes
Jeg kan snakke med lærere og andre studenter.
Teknologi er ikke min venn.
Jeg gleder meg til å begynne A-2
First, the punctuality, patience, and aptness of instructors. 2nd, the flexibility of the course schedules. 3rd, the depth of the course content
Convenience , flexible to learn, lingu is great.
The multiple ways to learn. Connecting in person with other students & the teacher.
I would have enjoyed extra classes focusing on grammar only & classes for speaking/listening only.
Lessons are well-structured
Needs more listening and speaking exercises. It would also be nice to work more on pronunciation by reading and repeating texts line-by-line after the instructor
It would be nice to have a more intensive language course that has daytime classes with longer hours and possibly every day of the week.
