- Some corrections:
shy: sjenert
to rest: å hvile (although I use "kvile" while talking)
Languages is my goal: Språk er mitt (or Mine) mål.

Also:
Would you like to do now? - Hva vil du liker å gjøre nå?

Both sentences are wrong. I'm guessing ilovelang meant:
What would you like to do now?
Hva vil du gjøre nå?

- Also, in English one would say "Languages are my goal" unless you were to say "Learning languages is my goal"

- Minor correction :)

Get up! = våkn opp (wake up), stå opp (get up).

Long -lang, langt, lenge.

shy: være sjenert, instead of bli sjenert.

- uff da!! tusen takk for rettelse :)

Get Up!: I forgot to include stå opp. Where I come from we use the term get up! meaning either wake up! or stand up!

Long: oops.. I got a typo in my post, I'll go and change it.

Shy: I forgot what shy meant at the time of posting and looked up my dictionary I have downloaded to my computer... what I posted was the meanings it gave me... guess I should have asked my husband :)
