Should I make a Norwegian vocab list?

Disclaimer: I put this in the English forum so I get quicker and better insight.

So I'm learning Norwegian, and there's no word list. So I figured, should I make one??

I'm doing it on Google drive, and every skill get's it's own document of words (foods 1 + foods 2 = foods)

I did the first three skills in one document so far, and it's taken quite a long time. It helps to review though.

But I probably won't look at it much more again.

Should I make a vocab list for the whole tree?

August 5, 2017



Use Memrise's DuoLingo Norwegian flashcards:


Every word in the course is there, and it's faster (and arguably more effective) than making your own list due to the spaced repetition.

Most of Duo's courses have counterpart vocab lists on Memrise.

Why do you have to hurt my feelings, Bob? :(


Hahaha I put it in the English forum because millions more are subscribed so there's a better chance of receiving insight, nothing against the Norwegian team :)

Should I make a list though?


If you're on the 2.0 version of our tree, the Memrise course Eyl already mentioned should be updated to match it.

If you're on the 3.0* version of our tree, then you might want to create your own list to make sure you catch all the words. Writing by hand aids memory, so perhaps you could keep a little Norwegian notebook on your desk rather than tabbing between Duolingo and a Google document.

*If your tree contains the skills "Games" and "Literature", you have the newest version.


I'm on 2.0.

Will there ever be a word list for Norwegian?


I wouldn't get my hopes up about that.

The incubator courses are built on a different framework to the in-house courses that currently have the words tab, so it would require a rewrite of either the words tab itself (and a simplification of its features), or a rewrite of the course platform.

The former is not out of the question, I suppose, but neither is it mentioned on this list. The latter would be a very large undertaking indeed.
