How we work

Norwegian at Lynganor

At Lynganor, you can follow a Norwegian private course online. The lessons will be adapted to your level and your needs by flexible use of teaching materials. The course is after all for you!

The video conference
The course will be organised via video conference.
You are probably familiar with some video conferencing programs—like Skype, FaceTime or Zoom. At Lynganor, we use another program called Vectera. This is an online platform where we will be able to look at any text, e-book or website together. We can also write a text together using the digital whiteboard. For you as a student, there is no need to download anything. Instead, the teacher will send you a link. Vectera works on computers, tablets or smartphones of any brand.

Teaching material
During the lessons, there will be a lot of emphasis on oral practice. However, reading and writing is also very important. In most cases a textbook is of great help when learning a language. Nowadays, many textbooks are also available as e-books. Using an e-book, the teacher and the student can look at the same page together. Written comments can also be shared.

If you prefer to use a printed book, it is still possible to combine this with online resources. In addition, short videos and listening exercises can be used for online lessons. Of course, exercises can be sent by e-mail as well.

Recommended textbooks
The Norwegian editor Cappelen Damm has s series of very good textbooks. There are both printed and electronic versions available.Are you a beginner or do you have just a basic knowledge? In that case, maybe you will find that På vei suits you. However, we recommend Norsk på 1-2-3 if you prefer a fast track study program. These books cover level A1 and A2, as defined by CEFR. At higher levels, we will use Stein på stein or Her på berget.
If you already have a textbook, we can consider whether it is suitable.

The price is 24 euros for one hour (60 minutes). The first lesson is free.
