Norwegian courses

Are you interested in learning Norwegian? Perhaps you’re starting an education, pursuing a qualification, or exploring job opportunities? We have the language course that suits you need, whether you’re a beginner or want to enhance your Norwegian skills.


Who can benefit from our Norwegian courses?

Our courses are designed to accommodate all adults, tailored to your specific needs and your current proficiency level. Your language proficiency determines your skill level, categorized by letters and numbers. The levels start with A1-A2 as the introductory stage, followed by B1-B2 for intermediate proficiency, and reaching an advanced level at C1-C2 for those who are highly proficient in the language.

Find your language level by taking the proficiency test

AOF offers Norwegian courses for levels A1, A2, B1, B2, and C1. If you’re unsure which Norwegian course is right for you and at what level your language skills are, you can take a test. 

To simplify finding your level, check the language model and take the proficiency test.

The Norwegian Test

The Norwegian Test (Norskprøven) is a national exam held several times a year throughout Norway. Passing the Norwegian Test demonstrates your understanding of the Norwegian language and your ability to express yourself effectively in both written and spoken forms.
