Language Learning at Oslo Municipality
Adapted Norwegian education is offered to pupils who do not have sufficient proficiency in the Norwegian language and cannot follow the teaching in Norwegian. Mother tongue instruction and bilingual subject teaching are offered if the pupil needs this help. This service is offeredas a right for newly arrived non-native speakers and other language minority pupils who are not sufficiently proficient in Norwegian to follow the teaching in Norwegian. The aim of adapted language education is that the pupil will become sufficiently proficient in Norwegian as soon as possible so that he/she can follow the normal teaching. When the pupil is sufficiently proficient in Norwegian, he/she will no longer be given adapted language education. Available languages for adaptive education include: Arabic, English, Somali, Tamil, Turkish, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
