All quite true, which is a big reason I'm taking this course! (My grandmother, who wasn't Norwegian but embraced her husband's culture, encouraged my wife te learn Norwegian as well, which she is also doing through Duolingo.)

Both of my mother's parents came from different ends of the country. What they usually spoke together was Danish though, the dialects of Stavanger and Lærdal are a bit indecipherable in common.

So, by effect I'm half Norwegian, and my kids are half German. Tysk tysk!
