NoW is an online course in entry level Norwegian, where all the teaching aids are integrated on one website, free of charge. NoW has been developed at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU, by experienced instructors.

Who is it meant for?

The course is designed for foreign students at NTNU, but it is open to anyone wanting to learn Norwegian. However, it does not give you access to a final examination. NTNU students can access a wider range of services including classroom instruction. Read more about NTNU's different Norwegian courses here.
