Fast and Fun - How to Learn Norwegian in a Different Way
This beginners class in "Norwegian" concentrates deliberately on the understanding of oral and written texts. In doing so the pupils learn by applying knowledge previously acquired when learning languages within the method of intelligent guessing. This method is a challenge, a game and a competition at the same time. Pupils concentrate on what they already understand, not on unknown vocabulary and sentence structures. They use authentic materials such as newspapers, videos and the internet. The method requires that the pupils are ready to practice filling in gaps of comprehension in a meaningful way. The reward consists in an immediate positive feedback as the pupils experience the feeling of understanding expressions in a new language from the very first lesson. Quick progress leads to higher motivation.
