To cope with the increasing pace and change of modern world life, we need new life skills and, of course, languages . Lingu's course catalogue has a variety of languages, which are important nowadays. Norwegians are proud of their role as a little country helping the world do big things in peace, and I feel that Lingu .no teachers together with the founder Odd Bjerga try hard to do their best in teaching. Encouraging with good Norwegian humor, explain every grammatical phenomenon several times if it is needed. Fantastic!

I have had very good experience with Lingu. As an online user for their courses, they have a very streamlined process. And they are continuously improving themselves; I can say that since I have used their services in 2015 and then in 2017.
