All courses were taught in English and this was no problem for me because I had already completed many courses in English at my home university. The Norwegian courses offered at the Handelsh°yskolen BI are for beginners. Also the "advanced" course! After three semseters of (not very intensely) studying Norwegian in Switzerland I had to recognize that I learnt definitely more by playing ice hockey on Frognerstadion with Norwegians. This was also the best way to meet Norwegians. I met my best Norwegian friends there and we always communicate in Norwegian (E-Mails, when visiting each other). I have reached a level where I can easely and fluently communicate with Norwgians and read Norwegian literature.

The language of instructin is Englis, and I would have excepted just Italian as another possible language of instruction. In Norway practically everyone speaks English so I a not handikept by my gnorance of Norwegian. The Norwegian course was offered at school at a reasonable, but it was still too much for my budget. I do regret not having better knowledge of Norwegian language.

As all Norwegians speak English very well and my English is fluent, too, I didn┤t have any communication problems. Besides that I attended a Norwegian course. Living with families helped me a lot to cope with this language,so that in the end of my study period I was able to speak with Norwegians mostly in their native language.

English is a language largely spoken by everybody in Norway, so no language barrier appeared during my stay there. Norwegian is a particularly difficult language to learn, in my opinion, and the host university didn't put to much interest in assuring Norwegian courses for its foreign students.

I spoke English before going to my host university but to be with international students and to study in English made me to improve that language. People there was always friendly and that made me easier my communication experience.
