I finished the Norwegian tree
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!
Yay, Congratulations Mari! Now you can sit back and relax for a bit until they bring out the upgraded tree. :)
Thank you, Naomi. I need to recap the final skills, and then it is back to Russian for me.
You are such a highly motivated person! You really deserve the recognition. You have worked so hard. Congratulations! Best wishes for the New Year!
Wow, that was quick! Congrats! The course is great, which is "bedre enn greit" in Norwegian, right :)?
Thank you, Helen. I admit that I rushed the last 15 skills. I was afraid that they will upgrade the tree before I finish it. I have to go through those skills again.
Miau and thank you! I agree - the Norwegian tree is my favourite tree. :)
You're welcome! Now I just need to hurry up and finish my Spanish tree... :P
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.
YLE broadcasts Lilyhammer, and I have seen a couple of episodes. You actually have given me the link to NRK before, and I have been trying to watch the news 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-)
Takk, Annika! I have been listening to Yle Mondo for news in French, German, Italian and also Norwegian. It is a great resource to have. I watch YLE Fem regularly, too. I am especially interested in documentaries.
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:)
Gratulerer! I just watched Skavlan tonight and noticed he at least throws in some Swedish words when talking to the Swedes. I enjoy the mix of probing questions and entertainment -- a talkshow for intelligent people.
Jeg vil også støtte norsk sportsmenn i begge eventer, men Janne Ahonen skal forbli min favoritt skihopper for alltid.
Unfortunately, Team Finland have trouble with qualifications round, so I am rooting for Team Norway, as well. :)
Hi , I have a question ... is that now that you have finished the Norwegian tree you know good speak ,read, write ? thks
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. :)
yes i learn danish ^^you know where i can find some information about tree 2.0 ?
Unfortunatly no jaja most are "reggaetoners", they dont know about good music.
