It's almost as if the Scandinavian languages share certain qualities with each other.

Hun er en kvinne--isn't "kvinne" a feminine noun? Shouldn't it be "ei kvinne" ? Same for "girl" too--"ei jenta" not "en jenta" ?

All feminine nouns can be treated as masculine. «en kvinne» and «en jente» are equivalent to «ei kvinne» and «ei jente». (Note the -e in «jente».)

I'm having trouble with kvinne. I wonder if it's pronounced "Kin-nah" or "Koon-nah." I"m sure I'll pick it up soon with my tin ear. Haha.

Hmmm ... I was under the impression that the V was silent. Well, I did the first lesson today. I'll review it tomorrow and I'm sure I'll catch on eventually. 74 lessons total. Hopefully I'll be done 74 days. Thanks for all the hard work, Luke. Really cool having this!

Only in the vowels /a/ and /u/. In contrast to Italian the leading h always pronounced.
