Come to Norway and experience our language, culture and nature. Enjoy spectacular nature scenes, as well as music, food, art and fun. Learn Norwegian - both in the class room and in your free time.
Norwegian language and culture
At Folkehøgskolen Sørlandet you will get to grow and develop both academically and as a human being in an international community. In the dorms, during meals, on trips, interacting with others, through play and studies – you will be challenged to get to know both yourself and other people better.
Learning Norwegian we use a teaching method called “suggestopedia”, which is a fun, intuitive, joyful way to acquire a second language. The method is very well suited for beginners, which is where we start – at the beginning. Even if it is useful to know English, it is not necessary in order to attend these classes and learn Norwegian. Join the different activities at school in your free time – get to know Norwegian students and practice your new language skills.
In addition to studying the language, we want you to gain insight in the Norwegian culture and society – music, traditions, art, cultural treasures and nature – equally we want you to talk about your culture and society. Learning about each other at a personal level is key to understanding the world we live in.
Internasjonal will explore the area around the school, including small cities along the coast – for concerts, food and museums - and hiking trails – for views, fresh air and exercise.
We will also do lots of fun stuff together with other classes or even the whole school :
- food and much more.
There are so many possibilities, we heartily welcome you to Norway!
