Product Features

Learn Norwegian through conversations

Travel back in time to the land of the Vikings and trek your very own path through Norway’s breathtaking glaciers, fjords, and mountains. Embrace the country’s lively folk music, strong farm culture, and unique cuisine and end the night at a friendly neighborhood pub. When you’re feeling adventurous, travel to Northern Norway to view the legendary Northern Lights, cruise the Lofoten Islands, or take in the view from atop the Jotunheimen Mountains – the tallest mountains in Norway. There’s no telling where your Norwegian expedition will take you, so you might as well find out.

Grammar Notes

No interpretation is created equal. Grammar Notes, color-coding, and features that focus on specific grammatical nuances between target and source language strengthens your understanding of Norwegian language structure.

Culture Notes

Etiquette, body language, gestures — set the mood. Culture Notes provide a backdrop to learning material and let the Norwegian culture come alive, setting you up to forge deeper connections with Norwegian culture and make a positive impression.

Vocabulary

Critical thinking and memory-building exercises blend new vocabulary into lesson progress, allowing you to pick up on the structure of your target language so you can apply new content that will be presented in various contexts throughout the course.

Pronunciation
