The course provides an introduction to Norwegian society, cultures, public institutions and social services. This course is particularly designed for newcomers to Norway who are required to complete the 300 hours of Norwegian language and social studies as part of their rights and obligations under the Introduction Act. Primarily conducted online, this course serves as the prerequisite for taking Vox’s Test in Social Studies for adult immigrants.
The course continues where basic level 1 left off, taking you several steps further in coping with everyday life in Norwegian.
The course provides a "Norwegian survival kit" for newcomers.
The course continues where basic level 2 left off, taking you several steps further into the language used in everyday life in Norway.
This course is the first part of the two advanced courses. We do not recommend students to go directly from level 3 to the advanced courses. One should first practise the Norwegian language for a while and build up a considerable vocabulary.
