The role of English and English instruction in Norway is reviewed. English is important in many of Norway's industries and most Norwegians speak or understand some English. Within the education system, English instruction is introduced around the age of 11. The role of English instruction within the education system, English examinations, English at the postsecondary level, teacher training, instructional materials, adult education, and the British and American roles in English instruction are examined. In conclusion, rapid and sweeping changes in the Norwegian educational system are having unpredictable effects on English education. (RW)
