It's a very friendly learning environment & I like the small class groups & handouts
How much work I had to do online because I don't like spending much time on a computer
Having a chance to practice speaking in Norwegian
Classes in the last few weeks were not so structured
Lingu is a great place to learn Norwegian! But I feel like different instructors have different methods of teaching, some might focus more on the materials in the books while some might prefer letting students learn by themselves. I'll come back to Lingu when I come back to Norway :)
Certification is not being given after completion
The course is fun
This is my first norwegian course, so a bit fast for me
Hun er veldig fokusert og lidenskapelig
Making sentence was tricky
Every one at lingu is quite supportive and understanding . Always willing to help students to clear doubts . All the very best
Jeg liker alle
Kristine is a great teacher. She translated to Spanish when needed and answered all questions clearly.
That we had a sub for two weeks, which is 50% of the course, and were not advised of this prior. If I had known Kristine was going to be away, I would not have paid for February as I didn’t find Eleonora’s style ideal for my way of learning.
I would add more in class hours. Otherwise, the book progresses too quickly for the learning pace and we have to do a lot outside of class to keep up.
Jeg liket at kurset er interactive og veli god grup!
Jeg liker ikke at Saira ikke skal være meg lærer for A2
Jeg elsker det!
Jeg synes at kurset var bra
Det var ingenting som var negativ
Jeg likte at er dynamisk og vi snakker mye. Jeg synes at kurset var veldig interresant og vi brukte mye annerledes lærehjelpe.
Jeg likte ikke at noen ganger var vi for langsom fordi noen folkene var ikke forberedt
Jeg likte mye det nettoppgaver
Jeg likte at kurset er dynamisk og gøy

I like everything
Per was good at explaing questions and going at a good pace in class
Maybe access to more exercises other then just the textbook would be nice for practice
