    This advice was from a (now) Professor of German Linguistics, so I trust it quite a lot.
    Ah okay, hmmm does make me concerned now :lol: that said, I do like the fact that Norwegian gives you the best grounding for Danish and Swedish compared to the other two so I may as well continue

    Je déteste * concrete generalisations with no recognition that people vary. But I believe it's fine for me to have strong opinions on things I like/don't like!

    Ultimately you'll just have to dabble, linguistically and culturally, and find whichever suits you best for now. There's no point hitting a wall with one and therefore ending up not learning any of them if you'd still have retained a good level of interest in another at that point. It's difficult to choose, though, so there's nothing wrong with starting with one and switching in a few weeks if you change your mind once you have more to base your opinion on.

    Ignoring the fact that this is a later edition, back when I was starting A-Levels in 2004, these dictionaries were £35 as well. I bought one of each, and then soon after they were down to (about) £17.50 in WHSmith. Don't go in feet first if you don't particularly want to, it's not necessarily that great a deal. Plus free online dictionaries are quickly eradicating any need for those things. I don't have any of mine in Denmark and don't plan on bringing them over, either.

    That's true, I do think I'll stick with Norwegian, I know more Norwegians than I do Swedes so it'll be easier when asking for help and I can always change down the line like you say

    I see what you mean but I hate using the online ones..(or maybe I just dont know of any good ones :confused: ) yet find the dictionarys so much easier to use..

    Anyone with German knowledges? What would an English speaker say, if he wants to express that something 'wäre gewesen'. Here are two examples:

    Das wäre es gewesen!
    Wenn du nicht gewesen wärst,...
