Hei alle! You’ve probably been wondering why I’ve been absent from my blogging duties here. Ever since I selected Norwegian and went to Norway, I’ve been devoting my free time to studying the language, albeit quietly. In the time I’ve been away, I’ve also thought very carefully about how to advance my next goal: to […]Read more "BIG, EXCITING (and maybe a little sad) NEWS — a NEW Norwegian blog!"

I was all ready to learn, especially after reading this blog that spelled out how easy it is for Americans to learn […]Read more "Norwegian: Tusen Takk!"
