Tusen takk for et utmerket kurs!
Norsk (Bokmål) lag:
Tusen takk for et utmerket kurs! Jeg har nettopp avslutta det norske kurset. Da jeg kom til Duolingo flere år siden, det fantes intet spor av et norsk kurs. Jeg håpa at det skulle være, og sannelig, det kom. Jeg blei svært glad da jeg så kurset. Jeg hadde studert litt norsk av meg selv forhånd, men ikke bra. Dette kurset var ei ypperlig mulighet til denne norskamerikaner som blei oppdratt uten hans morsmål til å lære det, og for det takker jeg dere. Ennå skriver jeg ikke bra, men jeg skal forsette å øve. Bokmål i dag, og nynorsk i morgen. ;)
Tusen takk igjen til Luke, Linn, Aleksander, Andreas og Leon,
I see you still have a few things to learn, but this is still impressive from a person still learning! I wish you good luck in the future and if you ever have any questions, you can always come here and ask.
And thanks for contributing by asking questions on sentences. It greatly helps us improve the course!
As I was writing it I was cringing at my own uncertainty in a lot of places, haha. I'm going to be reading a lot of newspapers and listening to radio in the near future, so hopefully I'll be able to pick up on some more of the nuances of syntax and such as time goes on.
On the topic of that, are there any grammar books (not language learning books, but proper grammar books, probably in Norwegian themselves) that you would recommend? That would be incredibly helpful.
Nobody can speak a language perfectly at first try. Trying and failing is an essential part of learning :)
This course has been following the rules of NTB-språket, so I guess that would be a good one. (Haven't read it myself)
There are also a few good ones on the Internet as well:
And a good dictionary for quickly checking the meaning of a word:
It's particularly cool when Icelandic and Faroese are taken into account as well. Another cool spectrum in general is the Goidelic/Brythonic specrum (which includes all of Irish, Scottish, Manx, Welsh, Cornish, Breton, Galician and Canadian Gaelic.) It's awesome to see how language develops like that!
