Product Description

Norway’s population is growing fast, as well as the demand for Norwegian speakers. Norway has the fourth-highest per capita GDP in the world and its very high standard of living continues to attract business development and immigrants.

This popular introduction to Norwegian has been revised and updated, making it even easier to learn at home or in the classroom. Each lesson opens with a dialogue of an everyday topic which is then broken down to study the vocabulary and grammar. Cultural notes give a proper context, exercises help the student master the skills, and the audio CDs reinforce the lesson by helping the student learn the language as spoken.

The new edition includes:

  • Thirteen lessons covering everyday situations complete with vocabulary, dialogues, and exercises
  • Introduction to Norwegian history, culture, and language
  • New pronunciation section on Norwegian diphthongs
  • Easier-to-read Norwegian-English and English-Norwegian glossaries
  • Two-way glossary of expressions
  • Answer Key for self-correction
  • Two audio CDs with native Norwegian speakers
