Our teachers have a relevant university degree, along with a wide experience that enables them to work as a tutor with us. The teachers are monitored and coordinated by our pedagogic leader.

With us you train all the communicative skills, i.e. you will become better when it comes to listening, speaking, reading and writing. Our courses focus on the practical use of the language, having the grammatical structures as a support so that the students can express themselves well.

We offer courses on four different levels, from beginner to higher intermediate according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. These levels have from one to three parts. Each of these parts contains 30 teaching hours (with 45 min). Each course represents one part, and will qualify you for the next one.

The courses meet twice a week and last 5 weeks. Our groups have between 6 – 15 students, which allows the teacher to focus on every one of the students. The classes take place at Kristelig Gymnasium, at Bislett (Homansbakken 2 – 0352, Oslo).
