Very helpful

Interesting stories with a good layout. Full story, summary of the events, then questions on the story. Very helpful learning to listen to Norsk conversations. Jeg anbefaler det, tusen takk.

Always excellent

Such a useful resource…familiarises your ears to the language…listening to the stories repeatedly..i initially just did the first story for weeks then added the next. It does really work…I find the language becomes very automatic…I have owned this book…on audible ..but also a book version (to follow along) for over a year and still get new understanding from them.
Other books in this series have the same stories which then gives us a step up to understand the next language. I did ‘cheat’ and buy an English version to speed my understanding. Very much against advice but helped me enormously as my vocabulary was initially too limited.
