This is a Norwegian language course based on a beginners level and for those who already has some knowledge. This course is a combination of learning and practicing Norwegian to a high level.

At Agder folkehøgskole you have the opportunity to gain fluency in the Norwegian language, make lifelong friends and explore the Norwegian culture. 

This Norwegian course is suitable for beginners and for students with little previous knowledge of the language. A wide range of teaching methods is used, including suggestopedia, to ensure that the students will be competent language users by the end of the schoolyear.The first semester we focus on basic grammar and use of everyday language in both oral and written production. In the second semester the students build upon their vocabulary and grammatical skills to further expand their knowledge of the language. In early Spring you will have a week of language practise in a place appealing to your interests, and you will also be a volunteer for one week at the local film festival.

Norwegian Language & Culture has a environmental profile with a focus on sustainable, slow travelling. For our class the travel is the journey itself, connecting with classmates, yourself and strangers along the road is a good way to get to know the country, language and the people living here. The course includes several excursions to historical, cultural and natural sites each semester. 

Living in a boarding school like Agder folkehøgskole, where the majority of the students are Norwegians, you have an unparalleled opportunity to practice your newly aquired language skills and to immerse yourself into the Norwegian lifestyle. Velkommen :-)
