A language programme giving a great step-by-step introduction to the Norwegian language.

På vei is a well thought-out language programme covering topics from everyday life as well as education and work life. 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 På vei

The textbook consists of 16 lessons, of which the first 9 covers level A1. The programme has a clear and systematic approach with a steady progression through the material.

Each unit is topic-based and contains a number of varied texts and/or dialogues. They are followed by a presentation of pronunciation, grammar points and a summary of useful language and expressions.

The mini grammar section at the back of the textbook gives an overview of the basic grammar patterns.

The workbook complements the textbook really well. Each unit contains a wide variety of both vocabulary and grammar exercises, as well as knowledge checks.
