Prepairing for a new language

An inspiring way to prepare for your move to Norway is to familiarize yourself with the Norwegian language. There are many ways of doing this. Which train of action suits your needs and wishes best will depend on the amount of available time and resources.


  • If you wish to receive formal Norwegian language instruction prior to your departure, we recommend you contact the Norwegian Embassy or Consulate General in your country of residence for information on providers of language courses and private tutors.
  • Self-learners might enjoy Klar tale (, Norway's easy-to-read Norwegian newspaper.
