Learning the language.

March 15, 2013

As job offers come in easier when you master Norwegian, it is best to start learning right away!
The language seems pretty funny at first.
One of my friends said it sounds like talking IKEA. That made me laugh!
I also feel it’s a bit like talking with a hot potato in your mouth. (I know you will try it next time you eat potatoes!)
I’ve been looking into courses and places to learn this magnificent lingo and there are many options.
Unfortunately many are rather expensive.
I will take a course with my husband in his company after Easter, but I’m afraid 1.5 hours twice a week won’t bring significantly fast improvement.
The Johannes Learning center offers different types of courses, including an online one for 1655 NOK/month.
I’ve also found lots of free courses and tutorials on YouTube, such as this one here that I particularly like. Every lesson just takes a few minutes of your time and it’s pretty helpful to get the hang of the basics!
So hot potatoes for dinner tonight and repeat after me : hvordan går det?
