Stavanger is an international city. It is also the “oil capital”, with many oil companies based in the region. Several other companies also have employees from quite a range of countries. Well, then it became necessary to have an International School etc. etc.
From what I understand out of the stats from the council, most “foreigners” are from Britain, followed by Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, U.S.A. France, Russia, India and the Netherlands.
Today I want you to meet RAJA, from Aix en Provence in France.
Her husband works as a geologist, and they have been living in Stavanger for three years.
She has been attending a Norwegian course, and I have to say that I was really impressed by how well she speaks the language! She works at the shop “L´Occitane” in central Stavanger.
