Norwegian YouTube Recommendations
Here is a list of youtubers that I like to listen to for listening comprehension of Norwegian along with some small shows and educational channels to watch. I mainly made this list to help everyone with some exposure to spoken Norwegian, since in my opinion it’s a bit difficult to find Norwegian speaking youtubers.
(not all of the youtubers are from Oslo/speak the Oslo dialect/standard østnorsk, but I think it might help quite a bit with some exposure to other dialects too. It’s helped me at least.)
Alfonso Dingo Torres - channel that posts Steven Universe videos/songs in other languages. He doesn’t have a Norwegian specific playlist but if you scroll through his videos, I’m sure you find the
Norwegian ones right away.
Cartoon Network Norge - It’s Cartoon Network, but in Norwegian, which means shows like Steven Universe and Adventure time are available (but not the full thing usually).
Hei Briskeby - Okay, yes, I know they aren’t going to upload again but they are from Oslo and there are transcripts of their videos in English. I feel like that might help you get used to just understanding how the language is supposed to sound along with a translation to help attach sound to meaning.
Hjartholm90 - I’m pretty sure he’s from Bergen. His dialect sounds either bergensk or similar but I might be wrong about that. (correct me if you think or know otherwise). Also is a gaming channel if you’re into that.
Lykke Sofie Myrås - She is from Stavanger. Miscellaneous channel, from makeup to vlogs to routine videos. She hasn’t uploaded much recently but she does have a snapchat which is lykkesofie
makeupmalin - She is from Holmestrand, which, is eastern Norway. She does makeup as well as other things and is a pretty big channel.
Miriam Lie - Definitely from the west (please correct me if you know). Does mostly makeup videos.
Nellie - She is from Tigerstaden. She does a wide variety of types of videos, such as humor and relate-able videos.
NorskTegnefilmSang - a channel for cartoons dubbed in Norwegian
Norwegian Teacher - Karin - Obviously from Oslo. Remember, she doesn’t just do teaching videos, she does vlogs and other videos about life in Olso as well as other places she goes.
NRK P3 - Literally NRK’s channel, with music, interviews and more.
OLEJOHA - He is from Oslo. He does vlogs as well as funny videos. He also talks about Skam ;)
Sangfugl - From Oslo. She does a big variety of videos and has subtitles both Norwegian and English on most of her videos. I just think she deserves more subscribers to be honest lol.
Stina Talling - She is from Bergen. She does a wide variety videos, specifically comedy and entertainment videos.
Sunny - She is from Oslo. Yes, I know she doesn’t do much speaking in Norwegian but she have some videos where she explains slang terms or swears
tim lektor - mainly grammar lessons that are pretty in depth plus some audio books
Veernacular - You might know her as Vee or letslearnnorwegian on here ? She just has a pronunciation video but I feel like this is a good place to get started if you still don’t know some pronunciation, plus she’s going to be making more videos soon !
Weird Norwegian - from Trondheim (specifically Steinkjer). Doesn’t specifically speak Norwegian all the time but will do videos about his dialect, Norwegian swear words or translating things into Norwegian.
x, x, and x are episodes of Charlie and Lola, a children’s show, that, to me, are very simple and easy to understand for listening comprehension in my opinion. (it’s also on the nrk website, but unless you know a way around it, it’s blocked there.)
x is a playlist for a show called The Moomins (Mummintrollet in Norwegian)
x is a playlist for the little mermaid (songs and speaking) in Norwegian
x is a playlist for Moana songs in Norwegian
x is a playlist for Pocahontas I & II songs in Norwegian
x is a basic guide on norwegian
Annd that’s all I have. Please please please feel free to correct or add to this list, I’d greatly appreciate it. And I hope you enjoy ! ♥️
