Welcome to Elementary Norwegian Course Level A1. As mentioned in the course information, you will learn quite a lot of Norwegian in this first course. The course will provide you with all the learning materials you need and new resources will be presented as you go along.
In this lesson, you learn how to introduce yourself and tell people where you come from.
An online course is a great way to learn a language, however if you just sit by yourself and don´t get feedback on your work and progress it´s hard to really succeed. You will sooner or later come to a point when you´ll need a tutor or teacher to help you out and guide you through some of the subjects covered in this course. This is why I offer several possibilities for interaction with me.
First of all you can send me 5 minutes audio recordings using Audacity or any other recording software you might have. Make a recording of you reading the text and I´ll send you back an audio file with comments and hints on how to pronounce the text. It may also be questions concerning the content of the text as well as grammar. You can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and add your sound file as an attachment.
You may also add me to your Skype contacts (Skype ID: henning55) if you like to pay for Skype lessons with me either 1 on 1 or in a group. More on this in the video.
From time to time I will also offer very cheap Webinars for as many as 100 students where I cover topics related to what you learn in this course.
The next course in this series will be Norwegian Language Course A1 Part 2.
As mentioned in the introduction, this course is following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). In short this mean that by following this course and do the exercises pointed out you will be able to reach the level that is needed to take a formal exam in the Norwegian Language. This is necessary if you would like to live, study courses in Norwegian at Colleges and Universities or get work in Norway.
My goal is to make all the courses from A1 to C1. At the end of B2 or the beginning of C1 you will reach the level that is required to take the Official Bergenstesten.
It is however important that you practice speaking Norwegian. I recommend that you make recordings and send them to me in order for you to get correction on your pronunciation. I also offer group lessons at affordable prices that can help you a lot. Text writing is also important, though the Norwegian grammar is considered easy; getting hang of the sentence structure requires some practice.
