The Norwegian language online course for beginners, the so called A1/A2 level consists of 85 school classes (duration of one school class being 1 hour). For the basic curriculum we are using a textbook for beginners, called „På vei“. After this course students should be able to master the basics of the Norwegian grammar as well as being able to express themselves both orally and in writing about everyday topics. At this point of the learning process the students’ vocabulary should contain about 1000 words. Their writing abilities related to short texts, letters, specific descriptions, messages, introductions etc. can be understandable, even with a few grammar mistakes. Course program The course can be taken in various forms. That depends on what the students think would be best suited for them: Two-hour-long class, two times a week; Three-hour-long class, once a week; The course’s intensity can vary, depending on what was agreed upon ahead.
This intermediate online course, the so called B1 level, consists of the same number of classes as the beginner’s course. After completing this one, students should be able to: read simple and authentic texts about everyday life, write about everyday topics and talk about these topics with a fairly good pronunciation, express intentions, agreements and disagreements. In terms of grammar, students should be able to master the basics of: sentence intonation, irregular verbs and nouns, the use of adjectives and verb tenses, word order in a sentence, emphasizing main parts in a sentence and everyday vocabulary. We use textbook "Stein på stein".
After completing this course (the so called B2 level) students should be able to: read newspaper articles, write fairly complex texts, take notes, understand simple lectures and conversations both on radio and television (as long as the standard language is being spoken), converse about complex subjects, master the grammar and vocabulary basics. Language skills on this level should be in accordance to advance leveled Norwegian language tests.
Norskprøve exam preparation begins after completing the B2 language course. The preparation takes eight weeks. We are working on areas such as vocabulary, synonyms, writing skills, hearing comprehension and group topics for an oral exam. Exam preparation can be individual or within a group.
You can start your Bergenstest preparation after completing the B2 level course. The exam can be taken twice a year. This year the exam takes place in April and December. There are two parts of the exam – written and oral, that you can take separately. If you pass one of the two parts, that can be enough in case you are planning to go to one of their universities (both bachelor and master studies), or it can be enough of a requirement in some professions. On the other hand, if you are planning to work as a doctor, dentist, physical therapist or a nurse, it is required that you pass both parts of the exam. Bergenstest preparation takes ten weeks. It is a three-hour-long class, once a week. If you are interested in preparing for the oral part as well, then the 90-minute-long class is also included. Preparing for the written part consists of going through six different types of texts that include topics such as science, medicine, culture, economy, politics, society. Grammar exercises are also included, as well as homework and going through previous Bergenstest exams.
We are organizing all kinds of remote courses through Zoom, Skype and other communication programs that help make online classes as comfortable as possible. The online course’s intensity can be decided in accordance to the student’s needs and wishes. The course’s duration is about three months (64 school classes).

I started learning Norwegian in January this year, in the Norwegian language school Saga. And now I am living and working in Norway, in December of the same year. I would like to share my experience in case it helps someone who is about to take the first step to life in Norway – learning the language. After completing the course, I have decided to try my luck and visit the country. The school helped with the authorization of my diploma, that was sent to me three weeks later to my home address. As a doctor I had no luck with finding a job in Serbia. In Norway I got a job after being here for two weeks, with my helsefagarbeider authorization. With my education and basic language skills I have accomplished something I could have only dreamt of in Serbia. The possibility to work and earn enough so that you can afford a normal life, help your family, travel and save money at the end of the month sounds like a dream. But I am living that very dream.
Finally! After a year-long hard work and mastering the language, here I am. In a not-so-small town in the north of Norway, with a steady job in a new pharmacy. Just two months ago everything seemed impossible and completely unreal. But all of that paid off in the end. It all began with Saga, a proper language school and a place where you can find all the necessary information related to the life in the land of fjords. There wasn’t any of us who was completely convinced that the Norwegian employers would actually come to talk to us and that we wouldn’t have to go through numerous work places for months trying to find a job. But… extraordinary teachers and great organizational skills give the best results. The were some misunderstandings and complaints over the time, but it is indeed very difficult to meet everyone’s expectations and needs, during one class with all of their different schedules. You can count on all kinds of help and these people become your friends over the time. True friends that get excited over your progress and success. The journey is long and hard, but it is worth it. Do not expect someone else to master the language in stead of yourselves. Do not blame the school nor the professors for your own excuses and failures. If you wish to learn the Norwegian language, Saga is the right place for you. And there is no bigger satisfactions than when an amazed potential employer says: „Du er så flink i norsk!“ Best regards from Mo i Rana!
What are the hardest goodbyes? Not the ones when you are going away with the people seeing you off, crying. Those are the most wonderful goodbyes. The hardest ones are those when you are going away and there is no one to see you off… The people who were by my side as I was setting of on this long journey were the people from the Norwegian language school Saga. They changed my life completely and I shall be eternally grateful for that. This journey hasn’t been easy for me. But these people have helped me start a new chapter of my life, a chapter I was not ready for at the time. They did all that with their support and their positive attitude. Not to mention their help with my authorization and their amazing organizational skills regarding the language course. I am currently working as a helsefagarbeider and I am about to get my doctor’s license. I lived in Serbia as an unemployed doctor without any goals or perspective. There is nothing more painful for a person than his or hers position in the world, the amount of unimportance that can not be handled, the sense of self that can easily be gone as if it was never even there. Then I came here and became happy again, learned to love my life and myself in it. Because there is nothing that makes less sense than to accept the lack of sense itself. I will certainly not do that. And with the way I live my life now I wish to prove that you can make a difference
A great opportunity to learn Norwegian and make it possible for yourself to go to this open-minded country with its numerous possibilities for both your professional and private life. In order to do that you are able to entirely rely on everyone working in the school of Saga. All of them will gladly help you to master language skills as well as help you with all of the procedures related to living and working in Norway. Besides, there is also a quality time with your fellow students, teachers and group leaders, who will gladly share with you their experiences and give all the help you need.

Every beginning is difficult and you have a feeling that you are going to fail, that it is not worth it. But you are wrong… You possess the main tool for the learning process and improvement – the will to give a 100 % in order to achieve your goals. While going through and checking a lot of schools, we chose the one that proved us that not all beginnings are difficult and that it is worth it. And we weren’t wrong. Every single class was interesting and unique. We got to know the cities of Norway without ever walking those streets. We would find ourselves wandering through their fairytales, meeting trolls along the way. We experienced magic while visiting fjords. We enjoyed the Norwegian holidays as if they were our own. We went through their history which left us with a strong impression. We became fond of their people, customs, traditions and the language. How is all that possible, you ask? It is indeed possible if you follow the right people, teacher who possess not only the necessary knowledge but also the skills to give you that knowledge. They have the ability to draw you in and inspire you to chase that knowledge which they are more than happy to give you. It is possible when the school is led by the right people who are above all good and honest. People who actually care about you, about your progress and improvement, who always give a 100 % and who grow on you. Without spending a single day in Norway, they managed to make us feel like we are sitting at a Christmas dinner, breath in the mountain air, feel the warmth of a fireplace during winter and they inspired us to go there as soon as possible and experience a different kind of reality.
In order to make my dreams come true I have decided to move to Norway. Learning the language was the first logical step towards that road. As per recommendation I decided to go with the Norwegian language school Saga, and let me tell you, it was an excellent decision. I have managed to master the necessary language skills as fast as possible, with their dedication and flexibility. While learning the Norwegian language I became familiar with their culture and many interesting facts related to Norway, that were unknown to me up to that point. And you know what? I made my dreams come true. I am writing this to you from Norway. The knowledge and experience I gained in Saga have been crucial for my success.
I can assure you that we have seriously dedicated ourselves to learn the Norwegian language. During that process we have been gathering information about a lot of schools and came to a conclusion that Saga is the only place where you can study JUST Norwegian. In my opinion that is crucial because one can not provide you with a quality curriculum, program and teachers if they are offering 10 different language courses. That turned out to be true because we found ourselves excellent teachers with outstanding organizational skills. Teachers that knew how to give us the necessary tools needed for mastering a language we have never even heard before. One more thing of great importance is that the classes are taken within smaller groups, six people in our case. That gives everyone the necessary attention and a chance to learn new things and repeat what they learned before, at the same time. Thank you
Hello everybody! My name is Milan and I am one of the Norwegian language school Saga’s students in Kragujevac. I am also one of the satisfied ones because Saga has met all of my expectations when it comes to learning Norwegian as a foreign language, especially when it comes to organization of lectures and the teachers above all. I was lucky enough to learn from the best teachers through all of the courses and levels, who helped me master the necessary language skills. All three teachers are very dear to me and we kept contact even though I am now living and working in Norway. The school in Kragujevac may not have as many students as the one in Belgrade, but during all three courses we managed to establish a great cooperation, closeness and we had a great time together. There was also a great deal of support from the school management when it came to adjusting the time of classes, considering all of us had different jobs and schedules. There was also a huge advantage related to the short amount of time between courses and levels. In other words, the groups were formed quickly and we didn’t have to wait long in order to start with the next course. That helped us a lot not to forget what we learned in the previous ones, so we kept building our language skills. I consider that being of a huge importance, especially when your goal is to master a foreign language in order to live and work in a foreign country. Thanks to that I managed to finish all three courses within a year. Saga also helped a lot with dealing with documentation required by the Norwegian officials in order to get a work license. That was a huge advantage on job interviews because all of the paperwork was ready beforehand, in Serbia. That is why I highly recommend Saga. Not only for their long tradition in teaching and focusing on Norwegian, but also for the effort they put into their work, excellent teachers and the help they provided when it comes to the first steps toward job seeking in Norway. The latter is very difficult to get in other Norwegian language schools in Serbia. Greetings from the North.
