I can’t figure out how to pronounce ø correctly 😭 any suggestions?
hello! Ø can be a pretty tricky sound to learn, but like any new sound it just takes a lot of listening and practice! here are some things that might help:
this is a video by Norwegian Teacher - Karin where she demonstrates how to pronounce Æ, Ø, and Å
this is Forvo, a website where you can hear words pronounced by native speakers. listen to the word being pronounced, then practice saying it yourself
there’s not really a direct English equivalent to the Ø sound, but it’s similar to the U in “hurt”. the best thing you can do is listen to more spoken Norwegian so you know how a native speaker would make the sound, and then just practice and practice some more!
what can really help with practicing pronunciation is singing along to a song, it can help take away the pressure of feeling like you have to say the right thing and let you just enjoy yourself, but you’re still learning while you do it!
lykke til! :D (anyone else, feel free to add advice if you have any!)
headcanon: after even drew that heart for the first time in 3x08, it became a thing™. ever since that fredag whenever one of them is waiting, the other draws a heart onto the glass upon arriving. it’s totally a thing™
will i ever get over isak asleep on even's chest and even looking up like he's so thankful to the universe for getting to have isak
and it’s something he purposefully showed him by putting it in the video?? He wants him to know he’s grateful to have him?
Even is such a demonstrative person, in both words and actions. I don’t think he leaves Isak in the slightest doubt about how much he loves him but, with all that, I get the idea he still feels like it isn’t enough? Like, he hasn’t gotten across just how much he loves him? This video is him trying to bridge that gap, trying to capture what Isak means to him and how thankful he is to have him. Showing it in a way Isak (and the whole world) could see it. :`)
