Link help? Just learning! - Hi all,

I really look forward to learning Norwegian. Firsty I am half Norwegian and our school has a foreign exchange student from Norway, so I would like to talk to her.

Anyways I was looking around this discuss and somebody posted at topic and then I think it was (PeterfromLA) but I'm not sure posted a site that sends you emails everyday with lessons and it takes like 160 days. The website has a pale blue backround. I plan on learning with my mom. I look very much towards learning and expect many questions from me. I also look to joining the class we have going.

Thanks!

- Hei og velkommen til norsk discussen :)

The link Peter posted was for Norword, It is an excellent resource for learning.

the link is [url]http://frodo.bruderhof.com[/url] or you can email the list manager directly and request to be added to the list at norword@bruderhof.com.

As Charon said, it is great to have new members and if you have any questions, feel free to ask! :)

I'm not sure where you are located but we have 2 norwegian classes being held. One is on Sunday evenings 7:00pm PST and the other on Friday mornings at 11:00am PST. you will be more than welcome to join either or both.

Stjerne.

- hey where is your school? like what state?

and yeah NorWord is really lame in my opinion. phrases you would hardly ever say. as if you'll walk up to a random person and say "Hva gjør du om morgenen?"

if you want to learn quickly then buy Teach Yourself Norwegian. i found my on ebay with a norwegian dictionary for 5$ but that was a screaming deal. plus there are excercises that help keep it in your mind.
