I just really love saying "veldig viktig". sounds as pleasant to my ears as the fjords LOOK to my eyes.

How do the fjords sound to your eyes?

"Utdanning" sounds a lot like the Swedish word for "utandning", which means exhalation. I became very confused, haha!

Duh, you have to remember to exhale every once in a while!

Why exhale when you can inhale? ;)

Education, training, learning. What Norwegian words best express these? You'd say "Learning is very important" in several circumstances in which you might also say "Training" or "Education" is very important.

When I said An Education… I got dinged, even if that is normally accepted English. So which article/gender/whatever would Utdanning take?

I guess I heard "uTanning" instead of "utDanning". Is this the correct pronunciation?

We don't say the d very strongly. It is there, but you won't notice it that much. When we don't pronounce a letter in Norwegian, it is "stum"
