Curriculum and track


The mainpart of our Norwegian courses follows the National curriculum in Norwegian language and social studies for adult immigrants (2005).

Level of language skills

The curriculum is based on the level descriptions of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The framework stipulates three main levels, A, B and C.
A is defined as an elementary level, B as an independent level and C as an advanced level.
The levels are further divided into the sub-levels A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.
The National curriculum in Norwegian language and social studies describes the language skills of four of these levels: A1, A2, B1 and B2.

Track and level

The curriculum operates with 3 tracks or progressions adapted to users with different abilities. Track 1 is designed for those with no or very little formal schooling. The courses of track 1 have a very slow progression rate. Track 2 is adapted to students who have some formal schooling and in many cases a certain level of competency in a foreign language. The variations in background and learning ability are extremely great within this group, so here we make a distinction between courses with slower and more rapid progression. Track 3 is designed for students with a good basic education.

Native language also plays a role in determining the most suitable instruction programme. Individuals whose native language is extremely different from Norwegian will generally need more time to learn Norwegian than those whose native language is from the same language family as Norwegian. Some individuals with a good basic education or higher education will nonetheless benefit from the instruction of track 2 rather than track 3 for a period of time due to their native language.
