Norwegian 1-to-1 General

These Norwegian lessons are more general in nature and are targeted at students with a whole range of different needs. While all beginners level students can expect to cover Survival Norwegian - required for short visits to a country where English may not be spoken and/or the intention is to make good contacts with the local population, students then generally progress in different directions depending on their needs. Typical students include those buying property overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people about to set off on that long-awaited world trip, Norwegian culture enthusiasts and those who are keen to pass a particular Norwegian examination.


Norwegian 1-to-1 Business

These lessons in Norwegian are meant for those that feel that learning Norwegian would make a change in their work. For starters, it is expedient to learn how to say hello/goodbye, as well as basic business protocol; once the basics have been mastered, reading and writing come to the fore. Students who have greatly benefitted have been involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where another language is required, and those working in the international academia and government circuits. Even on our most fundamental beginner's lesson, students can anticipate ending the lesson with basic telephone Norwegian and e-mail Norwegian skills for communicating, as well as survival Norwegian if a short visit to the country is needed.

Norwegian Closed Group Lessons

2 or more people can benefit studying Norwegian together as these Norwegian lessons are also offered to groups (Two-to-One Norwegian Lesson or Small Group In-Company Norwegian Lesson). Every student must have the same degree of knowledge of the language, the same business or language needs and the ability to study at the same time and place as everybody else. The booking has to be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advocate group sessions of more than 6-8 people, though Taster Norwegian Lessons can be experienced by up to 12 people.
