Lingobee selected as a satellite for Norwegian on the Web

Lingobee has been identified as a satellite application for the learning Norwegian, using a web portal Norwegian on the Web (NoW). NoW is an online course in entry level Norwegian, where all the teaching aids are integrated on one website, free of charge. This is an effort by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) to offer Norwegian when you like – where you like, to the increasing numbers of international students that study in Norway. NoW offers a formal course in Norwegian, supplemented by a textbook.

The NoW website was launched recently in a seminar, where four other applications that support various aspects of language learning were identified as satellites or complementary technologies that can complement NoW and would support learning Norwegian. Lingobee was presented as one of the satellites. The participants at the seminar recognized the added value that Lingobee could bring to language learning and appreciated the new insights it would provide in bringing the thoughts and interests of the learners themselves into the classroom.
