Learn to speak Norwegian!

Updated on October 2, 2014

Learn to speak Norwegian!

Norwegian is a beautiful language spoken in Norway.  It's sing-song sound is very unique.  Norwegian is very closely related to Swedish and Danish, and often people can speak to each other in these different languages and understand each other easily.

I learned to speak Swedish as an adult and have found that I can easily read Norwegian newspapers and websites. In fact, I think Norwegian may be easier than Swedish!

There are plenty of teach-yourself resources available at Amazon as well as online classes you can enroll in if there isn't a Norwegian class in your area. My mom learned a bit of Norwegian (a few pleasantries and the Lord's Prayer) from and elderly woman she voluteered with.

Take a chance and learn Norwegian. Lykke til!

Great Norwegian Language Learning Resources on Amazon - You can even rank your favorites!

      My stepfather was Norwegian -- a Knudson. My mom and he visited Norway a couple of times. Would love to learn the language and visit some day ... and then drop by Sweden!

      I have been there to visit several times and I'm slowly learning the beautiful language.

      I had a friend from grade school whose family came from Norway. The only word I can remember now is Fleki Fiyord (which I know I didn't spell right but that's how I recall saying it!)

      Excellent lens! And thanks for commenting on mine! My dad is actually Norwegian and I studied the language at University of Oslo on exchange when I was a uni student, men jeg har glemte hele sprÃ¥ket! I have lived in Japan since '95 so understandably that insane language has taken up the little of my brain that remains. ãã¾ã£ãï¼

      I would love to learn a bunch of languages. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at it!

      I would love to learn to speak another language, but it would be Finn. Never did pick up much Finn growing up, even though it was spoken in the home. Mom and dad could talk in front of us and we wouldn't know what they were saying. lol

      I'm part Norwegian and would love to learn the language. My grandfather is long gone but my father was proud of his Norsk heritage, often calling me Norska flicka as a child.
