Finished with Pimsleur Norwegian!

Hei alle sammen! 
I dag vil jeg gjerne å skrive på norsk. Jeg skal prøve å skrive mye på norsk i loggen min uten Google Translate eller en ordbok!

Jeg studerer også Assimil Le Norvegien Sans Peine. Jeg er på leksjon 19 nå. Noen av temaene er elg, snø, vær, frokost, en sjømanns betraktninger, samarbeid, ekte vennskap, kaffe og kaker! Det er et veldig underholdende kurs!

I dag har jeg ferdig med Pimsleur kurset!!! 🙂 Synd, jeg kan ikke si mye ennå.
Jeg kan snakke om mat, drikke, reiser til Norge, venner, barn og tall. Ikke så mye!

Hello everyone!
Today I would like to write in Norwegian. I’ll try to write a lot in Norwegian in my log without using Google Translate or a dictionary!

 

I am also studying Assimil Le Norvegien Sans Peine. I’m on lesson 19 now. Some of the topics are moose, snow, weather, breakfast, a sailor’s reflections, cooperation, true friendship, coffee and cakes!  It is a very entertaining course!

 

Today I finished the Pimsleur course!! 🙂 Too bad, I can not say much yet.
I can talk about food, drink, travel to Norway, friends, children and numbers. Not so much!

THE SECOND VIKING CHALLENGE:  see here: http://tacviking.wordpress.com/2013/01/04/viking-challenge-2/

Write 3 sentences where you try to use as many of the words which in English are spelled with capital letters, and in Norwegian (and as far as I know also Swedish and Danish) are spelled with regular letters as possible.

1. Han er en riktig nordmann, men han snakker godt engelsk.
2. Neste fredag​​, vil det være den syttende mai.
3. Jeg liker ikke januar, er det for kaldt og ufyselig.

1. He is a proper Norwegian, but he speaks good English.
2. Next Friday will be the 17th of May.
3. I do not like January, it’s just too cold and nasty.

 

I am really enjoying learning Norsk. I’m not sure how badly my accent is butchering the language, but it is really fun to get my mouth around a booming, emphatic sentence of Norwegian. It is also fun following my fellow Vikings‘ logs. Even though the majority of you seem to be studying Swedish or Danish, I can definitely follow along with my ground level Norwegian! It is so exciting that by learning one Scandinavian language, it is almost like getting “three for one”

Now that I have finished the Pimsleur course, I’ll plan on concentrating on Assimil full time. Hopefully I will be able to complete a lesson a day, but we shall see… stay tuned!
