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.

It's always nice to have new members to the Norsk discuss. Have a look around and ask away!


PS.- I think you're talking about NorWord. :)

- Hei og velkommen til norsk discussen :)

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

the link is [url][/url] or you can email the list manager directly and request to be added to the list at

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.

- 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.
