Start Learning Norwegian

The Best Ways to Start Learning Norwegian

Norway is a prosperous country with a rich culture, making Norwegian a popular language to learn if you want to travel to Scandinavia. Learning Norwegian will open you the doors not only to nearly 5 million people, but also to the fascinating Scandinavian culture, arts and literature. You will also be able to understand Danish and Swedish, which are very similar owing to the common history between the Nordic countries.

With so many language learning options available ranging from evening classes to online courses, it is often difficult to know where to start your Norwegian language learning journey. It’s important to assess which type of language course or combination of courses is the most appropriate for you. To help you make the right choice, the experts at Cactus have compared the benefits of each alternative and provided a comprehensive list of language learning options to get you started.

Norwegian Private Tuition

If you can’t fit a group language course in your schedule or you prefer to study in your own time, one-to-one Norwegian classes are the perfect solution. Cactus offers both face-to-face and Skype Norwegian language lessons. These are tailored to your needs and can take place anywhere, anytime.

Online Norwegian Courses

Online language courses are an excellent way to practice a language when and where you want. Such courses can’t fully replace lessons with a qualified teacher who will not only motivate you throughout your language learning journey, but will also answer any questions you may have. Nevertheless, they are an excellent way to supplement your lessons with a teacher. As it can be difficult to choose quality resources from the considerable number of courses available online, Cactus has carefully assessed and listed free online Norwegian resources for your reference.
