Premium is now free for everyone and there are therefore no rewards for the most active members.
As you may have noticed, there has been added a new function in the forums called Points.
The rules are simple:
You earn 1 point for each topic and post you publish in the forums (and you lose 1 point for each of your own posts or topics you might delete).
Why should I care about points? Where do I find my points?
Every month the user with most points will win a free month of Premium-access on Learn Norwegian Naturally. This normally costs 9$. If you are a Premium-member and you win, you will get the next month for free. If you are not a Premium-member and you win, you will get your first month as a Premium-member for free (and you may then decide to pay for Premium-access for the next month if you like the content).
You can find out how many points you have in many ways:
1. The amount of points you have stands right below your avatar in the forums.
2. You can see it in your user profile.
3. If you’re on the top list, you can see your name in the sidebar to the right along with your points.
What do I get as a Premium-member?
This is a quick summary of what you get as a Premium-member:
- Daily readings of Norwegian texts and articles + access to archive of all previous readings
- Daily words (basic and advanced) + access to archive of all previous words + weekly quizzes to see how many words you learned
- Norwegian transcripts with English translations of all episodes (side-by-side translations)
- Quizzes/exercises to test your skills
- Text comprehension – Norwegian texts with comprehension questions at the end
As you can see, you actually get new content every day when you’re a Premium-member.
Can anyone sign up to be a Premium-member?
Yes! The gates are now open for everyone. Simply head over to the membership-site and follow the instructions. All payments are done through Paypal.
This sounds great, but I have some questions…
I would love to answer your questions. You can post them as replies to this topic or you can contact me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am sceptical to online payments…
I definitely understand what you mean – I am too. That’s why all payments are made through the extremely popular Paypal or Stripe (if you pay with a credit card) to ensure that your sensitive information is in the safest of hands.
Can I get a sneak peek?
Yes, absolutely! I am glad you asked.

Til alle som leser dette: når man bestiller Premium, må man ha penger på Paypal-kontoen sin. Les denne kjapt hvis du ikke vet hvordan du gjør det: Payment information.July 13, 2014 at 2:01 PM #2075
Husk på at i dag er siste dagen man kan bruke koden Youtubefan for å få Premium for 5$ i stedet for 9$ den første måneden!August 1, 2014 at 1:06 PM #2715
Congratulations to Heather for her active participation in the forums and for being the winner of July! She will get a free month of Premium. The leaderboard is now at zero again – who will win in August? We’ll see! 🙂August 1, 2014 at 1:25 PM #2718
Yay! Thank you Peder! 😀
Now, go and enjoy your holiday! 😛August 1, 2014 at 7:16 PM #2719
He he, thank you! 😀
Some news as well: at the start of each month I will announce the number of people in the forums who will get a free month of Premium. Normally it will be 1, but sometimes 2 or 3. In the month of August, the 3 persons with the most points will get a free month of a Premium-membership. Good luck!
Dia and Nummmere will also get this month for free as a thanks for their participation this month. 🙂
