hmm

my husband to-be would like to learn Norwegian. and as a Norwegian myself, I would not recommend this. Already in the intro it seems like the beginning of every paragraph is skipped, as if they clicked on the new voice file too soon. In the first lesson with "Excuse me" the voice file says and repeats "yll" which is the sound of the ending of the word "unnskyld". so the whole "Unnsk..." was missed. sadly misinformative and only one who knows the language would be able to tell.

Great start to speaking and listening Norwegian

An excellent learning tool which has over 2 hours of recordings to help learn Norwegian. The repetition after around 7 minutes for each word ensures that you learn how to pronounce and understand the word when listening. This is only the first 5 units - there are many more to help listening and speaking.

Very good course!

Even though I've learned Norwegian before, I found it very useful. It teaches you to speak rather than just memorize the words and then not know what to say when the time comes.

Great way to learn

Struggled previously to pick up the language. Provides an excellent introduction, and opens the gate for further learning full stop.

Best course I have tried.

Would you listen to Norwegian Phase 1, Unit 01-05 again? Why?

Yes again and again....some of the words are hard to tell what first consenent they are using is since everything is auditory. So you will have to pick up a dictionary to double check

Any additional comments?

This course makes it really easy to feel confident with speaking the language.
