Become Part of the Norwegian Course! [Contest CLOSED]
Today marks the beginning of the first ever contest to have your sentence be included in the Norwegian course for English speakers! Below are the rules:
Create a Norwegian sentence & English translation using only words you have learned in the Norwegian course on Duolingo.
Be creative, dramatic, colorful, and fun!
Students are encouraged to use the up-down-vote system to vote for their favorite sentences/translations.
Norwegian speakers (such as myself) will point out any corrections that need to be made.
The top-voted sentence will be added to the course, assuming the following criteria:
The sentence is subject to the Norwegian Team's approval, meaning we can ultimately veto the top choice.
The sentence must be appropriate for all audiences (not profane).
The contest will end at 12:01am (US Pacific time) on the 6th of September, 2015.
Multiple selections may be added if we think the sentences would fit well in the course.
Keep in mind that any comment on this post is considered an official entry.
Lykke til, kjære venner!
I'm just curious -- is this a true tip for travelers? I could see it being one. I know Norwegians are said to be a little indifferent to small-talk from strangers, thus adding the variable of the enclosed space in an elevator would make it worse. On the other hand, most Norwegians I met on my trip this past summer were happy to chat a little.
