Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsVERUSKA de CARO-BAREK: Welcome to Learn Now 3. Thank you for coming back.

Skip to 0 minutes and 13 secondsThis is our last course on the series Learn Now: Norwegian for beginners A1-A2. You've already done a lot of work on Course One and Two. So, what are you going to learn this time? In Course One and Course Two, we went through the basics Norwegian grammar. By now, you can read and listen to more complex texts in Norwegian and we hope you're feeling confident enough to produce longer sentences and perhaps talk a little bit more Norwegian with your friends, family, or study partners. Therefore on this course, we won't have as much grammar as in the previous ones, but you will still have just enough to keep you busy.

Skip to 0 minutes and 55 secondsYou will notice that more of the course content will be about Norwegian culture. We will even have a whole week about traditions and celebrations alone. We hope that by showing you more of our culture, you also will understand more about us and how we live here in Norway and perhaps you'll find out that we're not so different. The Vidal family will still accompany us in our study journey and with them, we will learn more about the Norwegian lifestyle. We have attached PDFs with cultural resources to most dialogues and we have linked out to useful and interesting websites if you wish to expand your learning.

Skip to 1 minute and 35 secondsYou will find the English versions of each dialogue in the Downloads area, but we really want you to work with the texts on your own first before you rush to the translation. After all, learning happens in the challenge zone, not your comfort zone. You can't learn languages without putting in a little bit of effort. Without further ado, click away and start the final chapter in our Learn Now saga. (UPBEAT MUSIC)

Fyrtårn - Lindesnes (Lighthouse at Lindesnes)

Many of you will remember me from Course 1 and 2, but for the new participants, my name is Veruska and I will be your lead educator on this course.

I’m an assistant professor in Languages at NTNU and a researcher on technology-enhanced language learning. You can read more about me here.

This is a self-paced and self-tutored language course, so I will not be physically present to teach you and assess your learning, unfortunately. However, I will pop by from time to time and answer questions and comments you might post in the discussion area. So I encourage you to get involved in the learning community on the platform!


In course 1 and course 2, we went through the basics of Norwegian grammar.

We believe that, by now, you have acquired enough language skills to read and listen to more complex texts in Norwegian. We hope you’re feeling confident enough to produce longer sentences and perhaps talk a little bit more Norwegian with your friends, family and study partners.

Lofoten - vinter (Winter in Lofoten)

On this course, we won’t have as much grammar as in the previous ones, but you will still have just enough to keep you busy.

You will notice that more of the course content will be about Norwegian culture.

We will even have a whole week about traditions and celebrations!

We hope that by showing you more of our culture, you also will understand more about us and how we live here in Norway. And perhaps you’ll find out that we’re not so different!

Vesterålen archipelago

Tur til Spjøten i Vesterålen (Tour to Spjøten, Vesterålen archipelago)

The Vidal family will still accompany us in our study journey and with them, we will learn more about the Norwegian lifestyle.

To most dialogues you’ll find attached Pdfs with cultural resources and links to useful websites if you wish to expand your learning.

In the Downloads area you’ll also find the English versions of the dialogues. However, we recommend that you work with the texts first, trying to understand the meaning and sentence structure on your own, before you rush to the translation.

Learning happens in the “challenge zone”, not your comfort zone.

Library

Use the learning community on the platform when you need help and share your doubts and frustrations with your fellow course participants.

We’re all in the same boat, as they said, so why not rowing together?


We hope you’ll enjoy the next four weeks and wish you all the best on the course!
