Exam preparation for the Norwegian Bergenstest

This course can be provided as group tuition,
however one-to-one tuition is much more effective for the preparation of the Bergenstest.

about the tutor:

experienced Norwegian tutor

exam details:
The Bergenstest consists of 4 parts: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, written language use, and oral language use.

You need a vocabulary of more than 2500 words to be ready for the Bergenstest
To get a general idea, Englisch speakers living in Norway already
will need at least a year or a minimum of 250 hours on average
learning Norwegian to pass the Bergenstest.

The Norwegian knowlege level required for the Bergenstest can be described as follows: when you feel comfortable reading Norwegian newspapers
(like Aftenposten or Dagbladet) being able to freely talk and write about
the read articles, then you have the right level.
The European Framework defines the level as C1.
At that level you're supposed to be fluent and know all the grammar.

course content:

According to the content of the Bergenstest:
