My thanks to everyone who helped me along the way. I will be watching Skavlan, reading FilmMagasinet and hoping that my fellow Finns can beat at least some of the Norwegians on Tour de Ski. :) I will also be supporting Norwegian ski jumpers on Vierschanzentournee. Happy New Year everyone! I hope we get the upgraded tree soon!

Gratulerer så mye, Mari!!! :D Kjempebra gjort! You managed to finish before NO 2.0 comes out as well! I want to wish you the best of luck with Norwegian post-Duo:) (Just keep in mind that Skavland speaks a mix of both Swedish and Norwegian, since it aires in both contries. No need to adapt too much to that, you don't want to speak "svorsk" after all;))

Thank you, Hedvig! And thanks for the warning. The Finnish broadcasting company, YLE, likes Norwegian nature documentaries, so I will be watching those alongside Skavlan.

That sounds good:) if you have netflix, you might find some series there. Like Lilyhammer. And you can check out nrk.no/tv, (national broadcaster) there is lots of stuff there. :)

There are probably a lot of other Norwegian programs shown on YLE 5 as well, everything from reality TV to documentaries. The search function on YLE Areena doesn't allow to search for programs in Norwegian, but just searching for the word Norge revealed that the radio station YLE Mondo boradcasts daily half-hour long news in Norwegian (although you can't listen to them online later :-( so you actually have to listen at 13:30, or just skip YLE and go straight to an actual internet radio like TuneIn...).

You're really up to date with the news, then! :-p

I used to be a real YLE Mondo addict, and was introduced to many a new addiction that way (Car Talk by NPR being the main one). But the combination of smartphones and internet radio means the world is now my oyster, and I don't care about program schedules anymore... 8-)

Ahh ok;) links everywhere!! You can watch "supernytt" (on nrk3), it is a news program for children! So it should be a bit easier to follow if the regular news is too quickly paced:)

Hello, Youri. I can read Norwegian pretty well. I have been reading FilmMagasinet, because I like films, and I understand maybe 80% of the text and am able deduce what the rest of the text means. Once I get out of my comfort zone things get more difficult, though. Reading news, for instance, is much more difficult. I understand spoken language pretty well, too. I have been watching Skavlan's talk show and some nature documentaries. I can also write simple sentences. Speaking Norwegian is much more difficult, because Swedish keeps intefering.

thank you for your answer , I m causes for my studies at university because I return in a few months I will study translation and interpretation. I will first do a Bachelor of 3 years in Danish and English then a master 2-year applied Scandinavian languages ​​. How long does it take to finish the tree in Norwegian ? and how long you worked per day ?

Sorry that you had to wait for two hours. I was watching Vierschanzentournee. I really do not remember how long it took me to finish the tree. The amount of work I put into to the tree varied from 10XP a day to 400XP a day. I spend November and early December writing my seminar paper, so only did 10XP a day then. I also rushed the last 15 or so skills, because I wanted to finish the tree before Tree 2.0 is released. I need to go through those skills again. So I am not necessarily the best person to ask these questions. I speak decent Swedish, which helped a lot. I probably would have climbed down the tree a lot slower, if I did not speak Swedish. So you speak Danish then? That ought to speed things up. :)
