    Hi any of you Norwegian speakers still alive in here?

    I really want to learn Norwegian! I really love the sound of it (and Alexander Rybak hehe :love:) and this summer a Norwegian friend of mine has invited me to stay in Oslo with her, so I thought it would be a good time to start. She got me to read a text message of hers in Norweigan for a joke and apparently, apart from the numbers and letters we don't have in English, I read it with a perfect Danish accent :lol: and my Swedish friend has confirmed that when I say my few sentences of Norsk I sound more Danish than English. So I kind of thought I actually may be able to do this!

    I was wondering what resources any of you guys used to help you? I am still on the basics, and this is my second foreign language so I know how language learning works but obviously there isn't loads of material out there to help like with Spanish or something. Though I don't need that quite yet, I'm only on teaching myself numbers and days of the week haha.... gotta start somewhere!

    Ok, and the way to pronouce the letters Æ, Ø, and Å. To me Æ sounds just like A, Ø sounds just like E and Å sounds just like O. I tried listening on youtube to a video of the alphabet but with all the different letters between them you kind of forget if there is only a minuscule difference.

    Any help will be very much appreciated... took me so long to find this thread as I misspelled the word Norwegian as "Norweigan" :facepalm:

    Well I don't know any good websites that teach you, but if you need a dictionary I use http://www.tritrans.net/
    I also use http://www.verbix.com/languages/norwegian.shtml for verb conjugations.

    well, I'll try to ask a question, but it'll probably be the worst norwegian sentence you ever read ... well, not learning for a long time ...

    Hvorfor bruker noen mennesker (noen mennesker = there is probably something better to say, right?)"eg" i stedet for "jeg" i skriftlig norsk?

    hope so, too, but would prefere trondheim
    well, you'll have to look it up at the unis ... at last most of german unis write these information on there website, don't know for uk

    if they don't offer something you could still try to organize something (erasmus) by your own.

    Fordi 'Jeg' er 'Eg' i Stavanger dialekt
    don't like all your dialects. don't make it easier to learn the language
