What if I grew up in an English and German speaking household? Which I did. I understand a lot more German naturally. Should I still go for Bokmål first, you think? Thank you for your time and help! You are a big influence to the community and say so many useful thing on here. I wish this existed 30 years ago! If I had started studying at 11......I may be truly multilingual :) Take care!
Yeah, if you already know german, stick to norwegian. Remember, Norway is mess of dialects. Even if you can read anything on a news website and write like a norwegian person, it won't mean that you'll be able to understand what norwegians say. Even norwegians themselves have difficulties understand norwegians from other parts of Norway. If it's difficult for a native, imagine for a non-native. Also, Bokmål is a written dialect. No one speaks bokmål (or nynorsk, for that matter). If you want to have spoken conversations in norwegian, you'll have to think of something, like going to norway and spending some time there.
In Norwegian, all nouns have a grammatical gender.
'et' is the indefinite article for singular neuter nouns.
'en' is the indefinite article for singular masculine nouns.
'ei' is the indefinite article for singular feminine nouns, but with feminine nouns you also have the option of using the masculine article, 'en'.
