Beginner level

This course is especially designed for health care personnel who wish to obtain basic Norwegian language skills parallel to acquiring health care terminology. We focus on developing communicative skills needed in health care and medical settings right from the beginning.

The MedNorwegian course is intensive, held three times a week. The beginner level is divided into two courses: Beginners1 and Beginners2. Each course includes sessions to develop skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. We practice pronunciation and work with everyday and health care vocabulary. Beginners2 ends with an oral and written test qualifying for further Intermediate courses.

We use the following book, På vei, text- and workbook (2012 edition), which can be bought in all bigger bookstores in Oslo. Your teacher will also use materials containing expressions used in medical and health care environments.

Both courses require a working knowledge of English. Beginners1 requires no prior knowledge of Norwegian and covers chapters 1-8 of På vei. Beginners2 covers chapters 9-16.
