It is now time to bid farewell to the Vidals. They are now enjoying every aspect of the life in Norway, and we hope that you too have enjoy learning Norwegian with them. What a journey it has been, full of ups and downs and perhaps have long hours spent on grammar and pronunciation, but we hope you found this journey challenging in a positive way and fun. Think about all that you have learned. That’s quite impressive. We hope that you would continue to deepen your study of the Norwegian language and that you will further improve your communication skills.
Skip to 0 minutes and 52 seconds We know that you would do that. First and foremost, we hope that we now have the experiences and memories that can bring us closer together, no matter the background, and that you have learned a bit more about Norway and us Norwegians. To all of you, thank you so much for taking part in this adventure, for your time and dedication. We wish you all the best and hope you come and visit us in Norway.
Congratulations and Goodbyes
We want to compliment you on your efforts during these past few weeks and on your achievements by completing all the three courses in our series LearnNoW - Norwegian for beginners, level A1-A2.
The journey that brought you here has had its ups and downs, but we hope you also found it enjoyable and fun, and that you now know Norway and us Norwegians a bit better.
By now you should have reached the level A2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
That means that you now can:
Understand and use familiar everyday expressions and sentences related to basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, study, employment and spare time.
Introduce yourself and others and ask and answer questions about personal details such as where you live, people you know and things you have.
Interact in a simple way, provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.
Communicate in a simple way about familiar and routine matters.
Describe in simple terms aspects of your cultural background, your immediate environment, what you like or dislike and be able to put that information on a timeline from past to present.
Feel comfortable to start reading and writing more complex sentences and to listen to and engage in longer conversation in Norwegian.
That’s quite impressive!
You should be proud of what you’ve learnt! It hasn’t been easy.
We hope that you will continue to deepen your study of the Norwegian language and that you will further improve your communications skills.
To all of you:
Thank you so much for taking part in this adventure, for your time and dedication.
We wish you all the best and hope you’ll come and visit us in Norway!
PS: If you are an exchange student and are planning to study at NTNU, you might enrol in one of our Summer Courses. While if you are an NTNU’s employee, you can apply for one of our Campus Courses in Norwegian, just be aware that we have long waiting lists.
See you in Norway!
