The visit of the Norwegian representatives was part of the project "Learning English in intercultural perspective: Norway and Russia". Within this project the colleagues from both universities attended English lessons in the schools of Murmansk as well as lectures on the experiences of teaching and learning foreign languages in Russia.

The Norwegian guests got a lot of useful information for conducting a comparative analysis on different approaches of teaching and learning foreign languages in Norway and Russia. After this visit five students of the International Institute of Business Education visited Alta, Norway to observe the methods of teaching English in the schools and universities of the city of Alta.
