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. 

Our main focus is to build practical conversation skills from the first lesson, so you can use the language independently and efficiently.

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 :)

Kristine is a great teacher. She translated to Spanish when needed and answered all questions clearly.

Hva likte du ikke ved dette kurset?

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.

Noen flere kommentarer til din kursopplevelse?

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.
