The lessons with Knut were very pleasant, and I was always looking forward to the Norwegian course. Knut is very patient and was always ready to answer my questions (.…) I have learned a lot in this course, and I can recommend it to everyone. Thank you very much for this intense, and valuable, study time.

Knut is a clever and nice teacher. I have been following lessons with him for a while, and I like it a lot. (…) He also speaks Norwegian with me, and thanks to the lessons that I have followed, I can usually understand it well. I need to work on my pronunciation, which is why we exercise that part a lot. I easily manage to understand the texts from the textbooks, and I also make fast progress. Knut’s lessons are very pleasant, and we often have some funny moments. Knut is patient, serious and an open and interested person. The Norwegian language is logical and is rich in sounds, what Knut happily explains to you. I can recommend Knut to everyone who is interested in learning Norwegian.

Knut is a very skilled teacher. He combines good teaching with a sense of humour. He is a pleasant person and the lessons we have are tailored to our individual needs. For us it means not so much grammar, but more training with daily Norwegian conversations.

I studied Norwegian with Knut for half a year, I had found him online. Starting studying with Knut is one of the best choices that I have made. The teacher is very professional, but he also has a good sense of humour. All the lessons were very interesting and useful. If there was anything that was not clear to me, he would explain it untill I understood it. Studying Norwegian with a genuine Norwegian was very useful, and I am very happy that I found such a good teacher. The best recommendations from me.

I have followed several Norwegian courses in Oslo, but I can confirm that I have never had a teacher with the same experience and competence as Knut. Every lesson is different, and I have learned a lot about grammar and pronunciation. In the online classes we used digital boards and screen sharing – extremely useful for learning. However, if you miss something, you can check the material that Knut sends together with the homework after the lesson.
I was very satisfied and will definitely take more lessons with Knut.

With great pleasure, I have followed private lessons with Knut, and I will follow more lessons. I began as an absolute beginner, and I found Knut’s method very clear. The explanations are always precise (…) I particularly enjoyed his ability to let you learn at your own pace, his habit of including some curiosities about Norwegian culture, and his commitment to explain pronunciation. During the lessons, there is room both for studying grammar as oral practice. I recommend the Lynganor courses for anyone who wants to approach or to improve his or her knowledge of the Norwegian language.



Had 10 online lessons with Knut for improving my Norwegian skills. Very efficient and flexible, can recommend to anyone who wants to learn Norwegian!

I had the honor to take the classes of Norwegian with Knut. The classes were very interesting and engaging, Knut is an amazing teacher, very patient with students, great at explaining the subject matter in various ways to make it fit the student’s preferred learning style, which makes Norwegian with him a particularly enjoyable and valuable experience. Knut makes sure to actively involve you in the language and he also introduces you to the peculiarities of Norwegian culture, which is an indispensable component of studying a foreign language. Overall, I would absolutely recommend everyone Norwegian with Knut.

Jan and I took private lessons with Knut as a preparation for our relocation to Oslo. We could not have wished for a better preparation. Knut is a very flexible and competent teacher; he knows how to  to adapt the lessons to your needs. He is very knowledgeable. As well as introducing us to the language he provided us with knowledge of Norwegian culture and habits.

“Before moving from the Netherlands to Norway, I decided to take a private Norwegian course (beginner, A1-level) with Knut. As I was close to moving to Norway, it was very convenient that Knut was flexible and we managed to work out a good schedule for the course. What I really liked about his style of teaching is that he put emphasis on speaking during the lessons, as this was important for me. Although this was quite challenging at first, he made me feel comfortable and encouraged me to try anyway. This really helped me to get used to hearing and using Norwegian words and (simple) sentences. So all in all, I have had a very good course with Knut and it gave me a proper kick-start in Norwegain!”

I have followed a few lessons with Knut this year. Knut is an experienced and passionateteacher who is more than happy to bring the knowledge over to you. As a real Norwegianhe knows the language well, but he also speaks perfectly Dutch, so that the lesons couldproceed with ease. The lessons have been very useful to me, and it has helped meunderstand well the basis of the Norwegian language. This year I emigrate to Norway, andI notice that by following these lessons, I have made an important step ahead which hasbeen a huge gain to me.
Besides that Knut is good a good teacher, he is also a niceperson, making the lessons pleasant. I can recommend Knut to everyone in search for a teacher of Norwegian.

In just eight private lessons, Knut taught to me quite  a lot of Norwegian for beginners. During my hike of six weeks in Norway, I could keep simple conversations, at some occasions I even received compliments for my Norwegian. Actually of course compliments to Knut.
Besides this good result, I also found Knut to be a pleasant person. He is open to questions and he is flexible in his approach. I can recommend him to everyone.

Thank you Knut for your professionalism. I’ve learned a lot in a short period, and I have appreciated your kindness and your patience. Learning norwegian with someone who speaks your own language is quite incredible. Well done, a polyglot teacher!
