Online Norwegian Classes
Norwegian text correction for foreign students
The classes are online with the use of Skype.
In all classes there will be strong focus on speaking and listening tasks related to the language elements in focus.
Training in written Norwegian will be both as homework and in relation to the listening tasks.
With these private sessions you will therefore receive immediate feedback and correction, making it an extremely efficient way of learning!
Class Price is US$ 20/hour which includes corrections of texts (55 minutes) - No Monthly Fees
I now offer correction of texts US$10/text for those who only want that (aprox. 350 words)

Correction of Norwegian texts:
If you are not a student and only want text correction e.g. for tests. This option is ideal for you.
These corrections are not translations! My corrections will adjust itself depending on your level.
I will correct mistakes, but be less rigid if your level is low than high.
Texts should not be much longer than 350-400 words (If you are at a basic level and this sounds likea lot, you can combine several tasks).
You decide which tasks to send. If you are studying for Bergenstesten, you can send from there.
If you are studying Basic Norwegian on your own, you can send texts from the tasks in the book.
I will try to be fair and spend around 15-20 minutes on all texts.
Giving some explanations for texts with few mistakes, whereas I will just correct if the mistakes are numerous.
(All corrections must be paid in advance)
- Try to study a little every day even if it is just for 20 minutes.

About me: Norwegian Teacher
Classes in Basic Norwegian
For the classes in Basic Norwegian (level A1 and A2 in the European standard) I primarily use the same material as what is being used in language classes for immigrants to Norway. There is flexibility in the material used. However, it is highly recommended that basic structures of Norwegian are learned using more standard learning material.
In the beginning a standard material will provide very little communication and more learning standard structures.
For example expressing your name, where you are from, what you do etc.
Normally after 5-7 full lessons we will be able to have more free communication in Norwegian.
The format for the classes is not set in stone. Other books, including phrasebooks, can be used.
Phrasebooks are, however, not ideals for properly learning the language.
If you do not want to invest in material - we can work with material I send to you!
After only 3-5 lessons you will be able to provide written tasks which will be corrected free of charge.
If you are new to Norwegian it is Highly recommended that you use a professional teacher.
Firstly, this will avoid the development of bad habits. Without correction from the start you can fossilize some habits that will be difficult to change later.
Secondly, pronunciation is one of those elements you should train and get corrected from the start.
City center of Bergen in Norway
For the Intermediate level of Norwegian I usually use two different books. "Stein på stein" contains 14 chapters and is used for Basic Intermediate (B1).
"Stein på stein" is also only in Norwegian and after completion will put your skill level firmly in Intermediate level.
Second book being used
for Intermediate is "Her på Berget" (B2).
This book also contains 14 chapters and put you at a level where you are prepared to take Bergenstesten.
If you complete through this level you will be able to fluently speak with Norwegians!
This includes not only topics you are familiar with but you should be able to study advanced topics.
To train for the test - Bergenstesten - and to be able to increase your fluency, this course uses a lot of discussions both written and orally,
with topics that are relevant both for Bergenstesten and in your daily life.
If your aim is to learn Norwegian for personal and professional use without learning it for a particular test, we can naturally use different learning material. If you wish to discuss news of the day - this can be great training for someone not living in Norway.
Of course you can custom the courses according to your needs.
If you have any questions or interest in starting you lessons
