✅ Why should you learn Norwegian?

Norwegian (norsk) is a North Germanic language spoken mainly in Norway, where it is the official language. Along with Swedish and Danish, Norwegian forms a dialect continuum of more or less mutually intelligible local and regional varieties, and some Norwegian and Swedish dialects in particular are very close. These Scandinavian languages, together with Faroese and Icelandic as well as some extinct languages, constitute the North Germanic languages.

There are two official forms of written Norwegian, Bokmål and Nynorsk, each with its own variants. Native speakers‎- ‎5.2 million.

✅ How long does it take to master Norwegian?

In order to learn the communication phrases used by tourists in daily situations a couple days in the language course will suffice. However, if you want to master written and spoken Norwegian more properly, you should allow one to three years. In order to achieve an academic level, you will need at least five to seven years.

With time and motivation you can master Norwegian faster. The more time you dedicate to learning the language, the faster you will achieve the result. Daily communication in Norwegian will be a great advantage. And do not forget the media (radio and television), press, cultural events, music, and films in Norwegian.
