I teach Norwegian in “one-to-one” setting for companies and individuals alike.

Norwegian books and learning material
The classes I offer on the main site do not require any investment in learning material.
Regardless of your level I will go through all the language elements in appropriate order.
For longer courses, however, there are advantages to use formal material as they have a large number of training tasks.
The same applies for those who wish to study only as a self-study.
Most of the books below I have used both in my tutoring classes and as a professional teacher in language schools.
På Vei - Basic Norwegian Textbook
This is the most common textbook in Norwegian schools when teaching basic Norwegian to immigrants. Such as Folkeuniversitetet.
Stein På Stein - Intermediate Norwegian TextbookThe next book used in Norwegian schools, for the intermediate level, is Stein På Stein.
As with the book in basic Norwegian, På Vei, the book is only in Norwegian and therefore not ideal for self study.
However, the texts are not extremely difficult and at this level you should be able to understand them with the help of a dictionary.
With the current formats of Norwegian tests - the topics are highly relevant.
For each text there are also several discussion topics.
This is therefore a great book for private classes.
Because this book is also very expensive in Amazon - it should be bought by a Norwegian site such as Adlibris.
Her På Berget - Advanced Norwegian TextbookFor the more advanced student it is common to use the material in Her Pa Berget.
It is by the same authors as the other books mentioned above.
I would also recommend this work. Primarily because the topics it handles are related to topics on an exam.
Many of the text can be quite dull, however, and it is clearly on the political left pretending to be "objective" which can be somewhat anoying.
For many who don't intend to take an advanced Norwegian test - regular news sources can be a good alternative.
Other Norwegian TextbookOne book that is quite popular in Norwegian classes is: Norsk Grammatikk.
The above work book can be quite useful - be sure to download the answer key.
As with the other books - the answer key is not provided.
The book also has a textbook.
This book is primarily for people with a passion for grammar. It primarily contains a long list of various grammatical rules.
