This is the course for you who, by passing the Bergenstest, wants to lay a solid linguistic foundation for further study, work and career in Norway.
The goal is that the participants should build up a good foundation for passing the Bergenstest exam.
During the course, we work purposefully and intensively on the types of assignments that the written Bergenstest's sub-tests consist of: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, grammar, words and expressions, minutes (report, summary) and written presentations in various genres.
In this way you become familiar with, and confident about how the exam looks like and how it takes place.
Results at Bergenstest: B2 and C1
B2 level opens many doors to working life in Norway. When applying for undergraduate programs through The Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service, the result B2 on norskprøven or the grade bestått (passed) on all the sub-tests on the Bergen test, is converted to the grade 4 on the Norwegian grading scale, which goes from 0 to 6). If one recieves the grades godt bestått (passed well) which means level C1, of 3-4 sub-tests in the Bergen test, it is converted to grade 5. If one achieves a godt bestått grade (passed well) on all the sub-tests, it is converted to the grade 6.
We emphasize that each course participant will receive individual feedback on their written submissions. This helps you to a larger vocabulary and to become safer and better in grammar and sentence building.
