Norwegians start learning English in elementary school so you will be understood if you instruct in English. Stavanger has many americans due to the oil industry so they are probably quite used to hearing and speaking English.

It will take you about three months before you understand what people are saying in Norwegian and probably six before people understand you. You can buy some simple learn Norwegian books called NY i Norge from Amazon. The arebeidsbok is a workbook in case you are wondering. It has traslations from the text book in the back of so it is handy in addition to having the text book. It was the same text book used in community language classes for foreigners.

Do you work for the oil industry?
