Skal means Shall/will and Får means Gets. Hun skal - She is going/going to. Han SKAL til skolen - He 'is going to' school And Å få - to get Hun får - she gets Han FÅR det han vil ha - He gets what he wants.

Hope this helps

But in this translated sentence, the people used "shall" that "tår" get meaning is "get", i am really confused.

Rephrase the English wording into: 'you will see what it means'. 'Shall' seems a bit odd here, like meaning 'thou shalt'. I believe the correct understanding of this exercise can only be: "In the end you will get the meaning of it", which then translates with FÅR.

Norwegian isn't a V2 language ? I wrote "du skal se hva betyr det" but this isn't correct ? where should I place the "betyr" ?

Betyr is placed before "det" What you wrote in english would sound like this - You shall see what "means it"..

I still get tripped up by this sometimes. "får" in the suggested translation or "skal" in your suggestion is in the second position. You don't have to follow V2 in subordinate clauses.

And vil vs får? Will and shall ore interchangeable, as I understand it, but seitching them can impart emphasis.
