Tailor-made Norwegian courses for the workplace

Lingu is a market leader in tailor-made business Norwegian courses for business and industry and the public sector. We offer a broad range of tailor-made, flexible courses geared towards the requirements of the world of work. With small-group teaching carried out by our highly proficient teachers we can guarantee high levels of participant interaction and a healthy learning curve.


Course structure 

The course encompasses key themes in Norwegian culture, history and society as well as thematically linked fictional texts. The objective of the course is to increase the participant’s Norwegian proficiency and communication skills in administrative posts or similar roles in the public or private sector.  

The course develops the participant’s communication skills in relation to Norwegian administrative language and the demands of Norwegian business and industry. Within the framework of job-relevant example scenarios, participants will practise their oral and written language skills in order to equip them linguistically to take part in working life. Suitable for employees from all sectors.

People and companies have different needs when it comes to language courses. The key to a successful course lies in the ability of the teacher to meet those needs. So we carry out a free needs-analysis interview with each course participant before every course to enable us to design a customised language, culture and communication course that is relevant and useful and directly based on the participant’s level, requirements and wishes.

Teachers prioritise extensive use of example scenarios based on actual work situations and requirements in terms of practising professional/specialist terminology. Participants may be offered video conference lessons if meeting the teacher face-to-face proves problematic. Lingu has had extremely good results from this type of teaching as an alternative to classroom teaching.
