Norwegian Language Lessons

There are 4,741,780 speakers of Norwegian worldwide. Norwegian has two official standardised written and four main groups of spoken varieties. Bokmål (‘book language’) and Nynorsk (‘New Norwegian’) are the written varieties, while North (Nordnorsk), Central (Trøndnorsk), West (Vestnorsk), and East (Østnorsk) are the main spoken dialects. Norwegian is a Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family. It is closely related to Swedish and Danish. The three languages developed from Old Norse which was spoken in the areas of Scandinavia that are now Norway, Denmark and Sweden. To this day, Danes, Norwegians and Swedes can communicate with each other, although Norwegians tend to understand Danish and Swedish more easily than Danes and Swedes can understand Norwegian.


Norway is known for its exquisite scenery, from its fjords and northern lights to its lush forests and tranquil ski-slopes. Norwegian language lessons will help make your dreams of visiting Oslo (the home of the Nobel Peace Prize), gazing at a glacier, hiking and kayaking all day long, become a reality. Don’t forget the beautiful quayside city of Bergen! Norway also offers fabulous snowmobile safaris, igloo hotels and the chance to mush a dogsled (maybe while you search for the northern lights). Heavy metal fans will also know Norway as the home of Black Metal and a number of important metal music festivals such as Inferno, Midgardsblot and the Karmøygeddon Metal Festival. Since the Norwegian language is similar to other Scandinavian languages, Norwegian language lessons will prove useful beyond the country’s borders. Our flexible language training options will enable you to grasp the various Norwegian dialects and even recognize several English words that have Norwegian origins such as lemming, ski, fjord and telemark.


Norway encompasses a wide range of business sectors. It is one of the world's largest oil exporters and is among the world leaders in aquaculture, maritime industries, hydropower, the environment, energy, technology and telecommunications. Norway is the only one of the Scandinavian countries that is not a member of the European Union. It is a member of the European Economic Area (EEA) and a founding member of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), but has voted down every referendum to actually join the EU, most recently in 1994.
