Language and Coffee
Caritas offers free language training once a week, Fridays. This is not a course, but an opportunity for you to practice your language skills and meet other people who are on the same path as you are in. There are no registrations for språkkafe, you just need to come. We sit in groups sorted after language level, and our volunteers will help you.
Fridays: Caritas location 6:00 PM- 8:00 PM, Sigurds gate 8.
Caritas Bergen offers Norwegian course on A1 and A2 level. At the end of the course you will take a test and get a certificate that you can use when you apply for jobs. In Norway, you often need to speak Norwegian in order to get a job. At Caritas we say that if you master the Norwegian language, you have the key to get a job in Norway. Therefore, our courses have a work-oriented goal. Each course will be twice a week.
After a big demand coming from both Norwegians and Spanish speaking migrants, Caritas has started a class called norsk-spanskkurs where a group of people with two different languages (Norwegian and Spanish) will exchange language competencies. Norsk-spanskkurs is twice a week. Contact Caritas for more details.
Norskkurs B1 (Ny i Bergen kurs)
Caritas Bergen received a big number of request of starting again the Norwegian B1 level course. Caritas offers a more dynamic and community related B1 language course.
Caritas is opening a new course. Spanish course A1 level aims to offer quality language training for Norwegians and migrants who wish to learn Spanish language and culture.
The course will be twice a week for three months.
Caritas will start a computer course for basic computer users. It is a 6 weeks course. Registration is open. This course is for free.
Caritas Bergen is the best place to get help, learn Norwegian and find your way in Norwegian society.
We are here to help you!
