The best guide for a successful relocation


English and other languages in Norway



If you are about to move to Norway but do not speak any of the country's dialects, don't panic. English is spoken at an excellent level by most of the population under 60 years and foreigners can survive perfectly without speaking one word of Norwegian.


Apart from English, German and French are also widely taught in schools, even though they are not as popular as English. In the last few years Norwegians have also become increasingly interested in learning Spanish and Italian, which are taught mostly in large schools and in big cities.


The Norwegian capital, Oslo, is a cosmopolitan city where a wide range of languages coexist. Due to the increasing migration flow, it is now possible to hear people speaking Romani, Finnish, Kven and Urdu. Lots of immigrants are also from Arab countries like Iraq and Pakistan.
