Norwegian language

Norwegian (norsk) is a Scandinavian language and part of the Germanic language family, which makes it related not only with other Nordic languages such as Danish, Swedish and Icelandic, but also, more distantly, with languages such as English, German and Dutch.

Norwegian has two official written standards or forms, Bokmål (literally "book tongue") and Nynorsk (literally "New Norwegian"). Bokmål is heavily influenced by Danish, while Nynorsk is built on Norwegian dialects. Of the two, Bokmål is used by approx. 85% of Norwegians.

Good to know:

- Most institutions that offer Norwegian language courses use the levels, defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), where A1 is the beginner level and C2 marks near-native proficiency.

 

-  Some employers and universities require an advanced level of Norwegian, in which case applicants must take the Bergen Norwegian Language Test or Bergenstesten. Much like TOEFL in the US or IELTS in the UK, it consists of oral and written parts, is arranged several times a year in various places in Norway and costs a fee. 

                                 

- Not all Norwegian courses are paid: the various municipalities (kommuner) offer courses in Norwegian language and social studies (needed for a permanent residence permit) free of charge. However, this generally applies to immigrants with a residence permit who are not EU/EEA citizens. For more information, visit the website of Directorate of Integration and Diversity and The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI).
