How can you learn Norwegian?
Do you want to learn Norwegian but you have no idea about where to start, how to progress, where to find content etc.? I definitely understand that it can be difficult, but I want to share with you that I want to help you. I want to see you succeed in learning Norwegian online. I am very committed to this project and will do everything to help you in your language adventure. That’s the reason for all of the articles I have written and am currently writing. That’s the reason for the videos I have uploaded to Learn Norwegian Naturally’s Youtube-channel. That’s the reason for the Norwegian forums where I will answer all your questions as best as I can and correct your Norwegian sentences.
Learning a new language can certainly be overwhelming. Where should you start? What should you focus on? How can you progress as fast as possible and be capable of speaking your target language naturally? We’ve now touched upon the very core of my vision with Learn Norwegian Naturally. I want to teach you how to speak Norwegian naturally. I want you to feel comfortable speaking and writing Norwegian. That is the ultimate mission of this website and Youtube-series.
Why should you learn Norwegian?
There are countless reasons for learning Norwegian. Firstly, Norway is in my eyes a beautiful country with a diverse culture and history. Although Norwegians and Scandinavians in general are capable of speaking English, it’s something entirely different to be able to communicate with someone in their native language. These are some of my reasons for encouraging you to learn Norwegian:
1. Norwegian, Swedish and Danish
If you learn Norwegian, you also understand both Swedish and Danish quite well. There are obviously some differences in words, pronunciation and expressions, but if you have good control of Norwegian you will understand spoken Swedish and written Danish easily in most cases. You can also understand written Swedish and spoken Danish, but that’s in my opinion a bit more difficult (especially spoken Danish…).
2. Norwegian literature
By learning Norwegian, you can enjoy Norwegian literature in Norwegian. No more need for English, French, Spanish etc. translations of the classics in Norwegian literature for you! Henrik Ibsen, Sigrid Undset and Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson are some of your classic choices when it comes to classic Norwegian literature. If you’re a more modern reader, you might have heard about the famous Norwegian author Jo Nesbø as well.
3. Job possibilities
The job market is good in Norway with high salaries and low unemployment rates. If you want a job in Norway, it’s often required that you must know how to speak and write Norwegian fluently. Don’t worry – by using all the resources on this website that have been released and that will be released, plus asking me all the questions you want about the Norwegian language and let me correct your Norwegian, I am sure you’ll handle that well!
4. Norwegian music
Wouldn’t it have been cool to understand what they say in your favourite Norwegian songs? There are many famous black metal bands in Norway if you’re into that genre of music.
5. Norwegian landscape, tourism and attractions
I think Norway is a great country to visit if you’re planning your holidays. Impress your friends, your family and/or the native Norwegians by being able to speak Norwegian!
