Hvordan lærer du norsk?
Hi, i recently started learning Norwegian and i would be happy if you could suggest me some tips on how to do it faster and better :)
You can tell me about your experience, what sites you use and so on. And if there are some cool norwegian youtubers, please tell me :)
Takk på forhånd!
First, check Norsk Lærer Karense on Youtube. She is a Norwegian teacher and make great videos about Norwegian grammar.
Listen Norwegian music, watch series with Norwegian subtitles and use the language every day. If you don't have any language partner, speak with yourself.
Some good websites:
Probably you know this but I'm gonna remind it, study with Memrise or Tiny Cards.
I've always used the site "bab.la" as a dictionary, I recommend it, but its datatable is not much wide.
Most important thing..... SING IN NORWEGIAN! Robin og Bugge, Morgan Sulele, Katastrofe and Alexander Rybak are my favourites actually, I recommend them ^_^
Lykke til med å lære norsk, velkommen til verden til en kjempebra kultur!
If you haven't seen it already, the Norwegian team have a welcome post in these forums (check the Popular tab when you're in the Norwegian forum) with much information, grammar explanations, links to (external) resources and so on =)
As to YouTubers... as Tombe-93 already mentioned there is Norsk Lærer Karense but there is also Norwegian Teacher Karin. I think I have watched videos from them both in the past but I didn't realise they were from two different channels up to now... hmm, learned something new I guess =)
Other sites I use personally include (they are also included in the "resources link" above I believe):
Give it as much time each day as you possibly can, and study EVERY day. My Norwegian improved hugely when I upped my daily XP to 100 (but if you can do an hour a day, that would be even better). And don't be too proud to go back over stuff, even if you think you know it. Repetition is the key!!
Mostly Duo, but I've also used Memrise (which I found really useful), Tiny Cards (not so useful for me – I don't like the silly interface), Stein på Stein (which is fabulous, imo), Teach Yourself Norwegian (fairly useful book & audio download, my early review here. I also had a go at this free online-course from the University of Oslo, but was disheartened by the speed of the speech. I might have another go soon.
But there are many other resources out there too. Just keep trying things out until you find what works for you.
I met a cool girl at a bar a couple years ago. Before that i had no Idea Norway existed. Then i started noticing Norwegians were literally everywhere (here in NYC).
Now every time i meet a Norwegian i just ask them in Norwegian: How do i say "X" And they always want to stick around to teach me everything about their hometown, pics, etc.
Being Peruvian it blows their minds when you say a little phrase like, "Jeg liker brunost".
