"Tusen takk" is a very common thing to say. In order to teach "tusen takk", we need to introduce "tusen" and "takk" first.

Everyone knows that everything in Norway is expensive. You may find "tusen" useful sooner than you think. ;)

It might as well! if you live close to the Swedish border, it's very common to drive to sweden to buy beer because it's much cheaper.

As mentioned by lorua, it leads us to 'tusen takk' which could be translated as 'many thanks' or literally 'thousand thanks'. I think it's even more common than just 'takk'. At least that's how I remember it from visiting Norway 3 years ago. Things could have changed since then!

When saying "Tusen Takk" your saying "A thousand thanks" it's a more enthusiastic way of saying "Takk" - "Thank you"

In Portuguese, we don't use it with "thanks" but with "apologies": "mil desculpas" (literally " a thousand apologies").

"tausend Dank" in german works as well. not as common (I guess we don't like to be too friendly), but you could translate it directly.

"Tusen takk"It would translate: "Thank you very much!" In German there is the same expression: "Tausend Dank" but it's a little old fashioned, not so common anymore and more used in the south inkl Switzerland and Austria.
