  • you should already be familiar with the Latin letters and the Norwegian alphabet
  • you should be able to understand English or some Norwegian

This course is for you who want to be able to start practicing the Norwegian language immediately. Either as a tourist or as a newcomer to Norway.

You will have a brief introduction to the grammar, to understand some main principles.

But most of the course will cover knowledge connected to the oral language. Like different rules for pronunciation, ask/answer questions, numbers, phrases to introduce yourself, express feelings and opinions, and phrases for everyday use.

The intonation and the pronunciation you will hear and learn through the course, because I speak Norwegian. (you can read in English) I speak slowly and clearly so that it is easy for you to follow along.

This course consists of 7 sections (+ bonus section) with more than 30 lectures, and most of the lectures are videos with downloadable documents/pdf's, and there are some exercises for you to practice.  All the slides I use are downloadable.

Who is the target audience?
  • this crash course is suitable for you who want to start to use the language immediately
  • for you who will visit Norway as a turist
  • for you who plan to work/live in Norway
  • or if you just like to learn new languages
  • this course is not for you who are already on a more advanced level
  • it is not for you if you are not willing to put in the effort to learn a new language
  • it is not for you who are searching for a course that goes deeply into all of the grammatical details (that comes in an other course)
