Ny i Norge

Ny i Norge is the best-selling textbook in Norwegian as a second language of all times!

This is an excellent language programme based on a communicative teaching model.  It is suitable for learners on both language streams (spor) 2 or 3.

The language programme is fully aligned to the CEFR and covers all the learning objectives for levels A1 and A2.


The Components of Ny i Norge

The textbook consists of 20 lessons, of which the first 11 covers level A1. The textbook is methodical and has a systematic approach to each lesson topic. The accompanying workbook supplements the textbook and reinforces the language points well.

Listening is a integral part of language learning, and the textbook offers plenty of variation between dialogues and narrative texts. The textbook is accompanied by 4 separate audio CDs which contain the entire textbook in an audio format.

We have chosen this language programme as the basis of our General Norwegian self-study course. The systematic approach of the programme, combined with its gradual introduction of vocabulary and grammar, makes it ideal for anyone wishing to get a really good foundation in Norwegian.
