What are online courses at Speak Norsk?
Online courses are pre-recorded lessons, vocabulary lists, exercises, quizzes and listening exercises. The course is 100% automated (self-study) , but you will get to ask your questions and get quick answers by our teachers through comments on our online platform. You will be able to assess your progress yourself, get immediate automated feedback on your tests´and exercises´ results.
What are virtual courses at Speak Norsk?
Virtual classes are live lessons conducted on a regular weekly basis with our teachers on online platforms, for both grammar and conversation classes. Teachers will conduct the lessons as you were in a classroom, being able to ask questions on the spot, review and learn on-goingly with other students in the virtual classroom.
Can I combine an online course with a virtual course?
Our best recommendation is to combine an online and virtual course to get the full classroom experience, attention from teachers, just as you would in a classroom-based lesson. It is our most-requested and popular option to learn Norwegian from the comfort of your home, as well as the best value of your investment in the course.
What is the difference between online courses and virtual courses?
The main difference between online and virtual courses is the level of interaction between students and teachers.
- Online course – pre-recorded videos and lessons
- Virtual course – live lessons
Who is the online course for?
The online course is suitable for those who do not want to have a fixed schedule for classes and want to learn on their own time and availability. It is also recommended for those who want to practice and learn by themselves.
Who is the virtual course for?
The virtual course is preferred by students who need guidance and support from our teachers and prefer live interaction. Since virtual classes are held morning and evening, they are often chosen by those who would like to dedicate their time either before or after work to learn Norwegian with other students in our virtual classrooms.
