Nynorsk or Bokmal
Learning this language for interest only. I dont have any immediate need to go or speak to people from there although who knows in the future. I hadnt realised until I began that there were two types of Norwegian. Is there any plan for a Duo Nynorsk course and if there was, which would be most useful during a visit? I think I read that Bokmal was only helpful for Oslo.
Hi! I think that a Nynorsk course would be unlikely, at least for the next few years. I definitely think Bokmål is much more useful than Nynorsk. Most Norwegians speak both since school anyway, so you wouldn't have to much of a problem if you only spoke Bokmål. Bokmål is pretty much everywhere around Norway, and Nynorsk is confined to the west coast.
"Most Norwegians speak both since school anyway" This is incorrect: Bokmål and Nynorsk are written languages.
