Web-based language learning (Norwegian)
Interdisciplinarity is an important priority to the department, and several cooperation projects are well under way, e.g. between Norwegian as a second language and phonetics, and linguistics and applied linguistics. Our staff is currently participating in various local and international research projects, such as:
Do you speak a foreign language in addition to Norwegian? Or maybe you teach foreign students Norwegian? If yes, I guess you probably know how difficult it can be to learn how to pronounce words correctly. The computer programme CALST may be of great help to those learning Norwegian.
NoW is a web based Norwegian course for beginners. All teaching materials are integrated in one single web site, free of charge. The NoW project is developed by the Norwegian teachers working at the Department of Language and Literature.
NTNU has collaborated with other educational institutions in order to create tailor-made versions of NoW. These may be used free of charge.
LearnNoW - in collaboration with VOX (Norwegian Agency for Lifelong Learning) - an agency of the Ministry of Education and Research.
NoWiN - in collaboration with Narvik University College (HiN).
