Learn Norwegian
at the Beverly Hills Lingual Institute

Hallo! Spoken by almost five million people, Norwegian is one of the Scandinavian languages, and is relatively easy for English speakers to learn.

The standard languages of Norway, Sweden and Denmark are mutually intelligible, meaning that the populations of each country can more or less understand each other's languages in both written and spoken form. Norwegian and Danish are particularly close, as Denmark and Norway were unified for four hundred years prior to 1814. If your aim is to communicate in all three countries, learn Norwegian first. A Dane can deal comfortably with Norwegian, but much leess so with Swedish. A Swede can deal comfortably with Norwegian, but much less so with Danish. A Norwegian is comfortable with both Swedish and Danish.

Your best choice to learn Norwegian in Los Angeles is the Beverly Hills Lingual Institute. Our faculty and courses are proven, effective, and extremely popular with residents of the Los Angeles area.

Why Learn Norwegian?

Learn [LANGUAGE] in Los Angeles

In any list of non-English-speaking countries with the highest percentage of people fluent in English, the three Scandinavian countries - Denmark, Norway, and Sweden - are close behind Holland. You may never need their language no matter where you go or who you deal with in Scandinavia, but Scandinavians are among the most appreciative people on earth if you're prepared to make the effort.

Besides, the Scandinavian languages are relatively easy for Americans to learn. They're Germanic languages, related to English, but vastly easier to learn than German. The verbs don't change for person and number, and only slightly for tense. The word order follows English obligingly most of the way.

Learning a language can change your life.

Knowing how to say at least a few words in another language will break the ice at any business meeting, and will certainly make your vacation more pleasant.

You may also want to get in touch with your heritage by learning some of the language that your ancestors spoke. Language is a particularly good bridge in this regard, as it can often be a guide to the ways in which different cultures express not only ideas, but emotions. By exposing you to every aspect of the human condition, language allows you to study the past, understand the present, and ponder the future.

The Beverly Hills Lingual Institute invites you to learn Norwegian at our award-winning school, where we are proud to offer Norwegian and more than 35 other languages.

Our language school hires and retains exceptional Norwegian teachers, eager to share their knowledge and love for their native land and the Norwegian language.

Our attractive location, on-site parking and schedule all combine to facilitate your Norwegian courses.

Why a Classroom Instead of an On-Line Course?

Clearly there are those who have been successful using on-line courses.

However, we have found that most students who are serious about learning Norwegian do better in a classroom setting with native-speaking teachers, using college-level texts.

The best way to discover a new language is to immerse yourself in it. Listen to the way it sounds, concentrate on the pronunciation, and look at how it is written. Above all, speak it. By listening and repeating, you'll enter a new world of ideas and peoples. A word spoken between ten and twenty times is remembered more readily than a word seeen fifty to one hundred times.

Being surrounded by others who are interested in the Norwegian language and culture will reinforce your interest and motivation. Learning together, with shared commitment, creates a pleasant and exciting education experience. As we're often told, acquiring a language through immersion really does feel like magic!

Research has shown time and time again that motivation is a crucial part of learner progress, and that the establishment of clear goals from the beginning will contribute to your success.

More About Norwegian

Norwegian has two official forms: the more formal Bokmål (influenced by Danish and dating from the Danish Empire period), and the more modern (and Norwegian) Nynorsk. Although Norwegians are educated in both, Bokmål enjoys much more widespread usage in formal writing, whereas Nynorsk - which is based on everyday Norwegian - tends to be more informal.

Private Lessons

Some students prefer private lessons instead of a scheduled class, or occasionally take private classes to augment their existing scheduled course. Private lessons are tailored to specific needs, and can be useful if a student's language knowledge is uneven, if a more intensified study program is needed, or if scheduling and privacy is a concern.

With our large staff of native speakers, we can schedule private lessons in most languages.

Private lessons are available in packages of eight, 80-minute sessions; or, if you are enrolled in a class, your private lesson can be scheduled individually.

Alternative Programs

The majority of our scheduled language classes are designed for adult students who want to learn another language. We also offer the following alternative programs.

English | Accent Reduction

Classes evaluate the student's problem areas and focus on exercises designed to target and remedy those areas. Our Accent Reduction course focuses on pronunciation, stress, enunciation, diction, tonality, musicality, syntax, and articulation, through vowel and consonant exercises, work chants, tongue twisters, and readings. Individual attention is given to each student's area of difficulty.

English | Native Speaker

These classes are for those who grew up speaking English but want to improve and refine their English. Designed to give you the critical edge in English communication, they target grammar, spelling, and pronunciation.

Little Linguals

Designed for children aged 6 – 11, our "Little Lingual" classes meet once a week during the afternoon for one hour. Class content includes Alphabet, Songs, Games, Practical Words and Phrases, and Basic Dialogue. Children aged 12 and above can join our regularly scheduled adult classes.

These exciting classes are geared to get an early start on language learning while helping children enjoy and appreciate a different culture. This is the best time for them to learn a foreign language. The younger the learner, the better they are at mimicking new sounds and adopting pronunciation. The brain is open to new sounds and patterns in preadolescence.

Young children have the luxury of taking in a new language naturally. A child's brain is like a sponge that soaks up new vocabulary, sentence structure, words stress, pronunciation and everything that makes up language quickly, easily and, most importantly, without explicit grammatical instruction.

Unfortunately, when you're an adult, learning a new language takes a bit more effort!

Young children have time to learn through play-like activities. Language lessons can be informal and children's minds are not yet cluttered with facts to be stored and tested. Before children become self-conscious, they can try out their newly acquired languages without fear of embarrassment.

Children who grow up learning about languages develop empathy for others and a curiosity for different cultures and ideas, and are better prepared to take their place in a global society. Furthermore, in later years, career opportunities increase for those with additional languages to offer.

Studies by Harvard University confirm that learning additional languages increases critical thinking skills, creativity and flexibility of the mind in young children. Moreover, pupils who learn a foreign language outscore their non-foreign-language-learning peers in standardized verbal and math tests, indicating that learning additional language is a cognitive - and not just linguistic - activity. The brain, like any muscle, functions better with exercise. Learning a language involves memorizing rules and vocabulary, which helps strengthen that mental muscle.

Travel Classes

Our Travel Classes are designed for those who are planning a trip and want to get more out of their travel experience. These classes are held twice a week for one month. They are language classes focused on travel conversation, pronunciation, and culture.
