Hi! So I have just started to learn Norwegian and I could t find many resources that were easy to use and made sense to me. So I was just wondering what resources you use? And if you have any tips for learning Norwegian? Thank you so much!

Hi! Well, I’m Norwegian so I’m not exactly learning Norwegian, but I did some research for you and this is what I found.

Dictionaries 

http://www.babla.no/engelsk-norsk/ Is a Norwegian-English (and vice versa) dictionary.

http://nob-ordbok.uio.no/perl/ordbok.cgi is a digital dictionary. I don’t know how useful this is as it is in Norwegian though.

http://www.heinzelnisse.info/ is a German-Norwegian Norwegian-German dictionary

http://lexin.udir.no/ is another dictionary; this site was made for minority students in Norway. Therefore it has the translations in languages such as Persian, Arabian, Dari, Kurdish, Tamil, Thai, Turkish, Russian, Polish, Tagalog, and others. 

Listening

http://www.ling.hf.ntnu.no/nos/ this is a site where you can listen to Norwegians from all over Norway’s recordings of a story called Nordavinden og sola. You can familiarize yourself with different Norwegian dialects or just practice listening.

http://radio.no/ Norwegian radio. You can listen to whatever is currently getting streamed in Norway at some of the channels.

http://norwords.com/index.html/ once you’ve made an account and signed in, you can listen to authentic audio recordings of text books. And you can also do other lessons here. (If you do make an account I suggest you go to http://norwords.com/news/). 

Games

http://www.tekstlab.uio.no/grei/ is a grammatical game made by students for students learning Norwegian. It has the explanations for the games written in English. 

http://www.digitaldialects.com/Norwegian.htm here you memorise greetings, numbers, colours, et cetera and you have to click the correct English translation.

Pen pals

http://www.mylanguageexchange.com/Learn/Norwegian.asp you can find Norwegian pen pals here; if you’re willing to teach them some of your own native language as well. (I’m not sure but I don’t think it works if your native language is English, I’m afraid.) 

Norwegian lessons

http://www.learn-norwegian.net/ has lessons for beginners

http://norwegianlanguage.info/norword/index.html on it’s site it says that “NorWord was originally written during summer and
fall of 1995, by Nancy Aarsvold (currently at St. Olaf College) and Louis Janus,
(currently at CARLA, U of Minnesota). The lessons presented above have been
edited to use proper æ, ø and å characters on the web.” Keep in mind that this is from 1995.

http://www.learnnorwegiannaturally.com/ is another Norwegian lessons website. They also have a youtube channel.

Newspaper

http://www.klartale.no/ is the only easy-to-read Norwegian newspaper that aren’t made for children/teenagers.

Youtube

Michelle Alexandra seems to have a few Norwegian lessons. So does Karin and learnnorwegiannaturally. I’m sure there’s more but these were the best I could find.


I don’t know how much of a help this was, but I hope you figure it out. I suggest you check out Duolingo and/or Memrise if you haven’t already. Lykke til!
