About

Hi, I am Kevin. I am a Norwegian learner from Mumbai, India. By profession, I am a software developer working with mobile and POS terminals.

So why is a guy from India learning Norwegian?

In 2008, I had the opportunity to visit Oslo, Norway as part of my work. I lived there for around a year and a half. I found Norway to be a very beautiful country and my Norwegian colleagues friendly and hospitable.

I started learning Norwegian as a hobby and got hooked! Like you, I searched the Internet to find good resources for beginner’s Norwegian. I found some good resources like I have mentioned at http://norsk.rkevin.com/resources but they were just basic and not adequate enough.

The first good resource that I found was a book mentioned by one of my colleagues. The book was Teach Yourself Complete Norwegian and I found it to be the best book for beginners to learn the Norwegian language.

Slowly I was improving at my Norwegian skills and one day a friend recommended that I should try the Norwegian Tests. So I studied for the Norsk Prøve 2 and successfully passed both the written and the oral tests.

I have also collected all my lessons on Norwegian vocabulary and grammar into an ebook, Beginning Norwegian.

Why you should subscribe to my website?

I started this website to provide beginners like you and me with free Norwegian lessons that will guide you till you are fluent enough to hold Norwegian conversations.

An added benefit of the Norwegian lessons I provide are that it will help you succeed at the Norwegian tests if you do apply for them.

I keep creating ebooks that will help you with learning Norwegian. So do check out my books section.

I also keep updating a list of resources for learning Norwegian that I find on the Internet.

Here are a few of the Norwegian lessons you will learn on this website.

So if you are a beginner who wants to learn Norwegian, please join the 2500+ learners by subscribing below. As a BONUS, you get my free eBook, 500+ Norwegian Nouns.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope to see you succeed in learning Norwegian!

    Hey Kevin. Thanks for helping us with things that would take us load of time to access. A friend just recommended your lessons after my Norsk class i dag.

    I have to ask for a big favor, though. This is completely unrelated to Norsk. I’m setting up a website and I”m planning to buy this WordPress theme called Catalyst (http://catalysttheme.com/). I’ve already bought the domain name and hosting plan. Problem though is I know nothing about these things. Also I stay in a very small town in Northern Norway (Svolvær) where its very hard to find any one to help me with this. This is compounded by the fact that I don’t have any friends here. Any help that you can offer will much appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Kevin,
    Thank you. That will help. In fact, my host(Dreamhost) installs word press for clients who want that service. Problem is I want to tweak many things here and there yet I literately don’t know anything about websites. What i need is kind of an advanced install of WordPress. My knowledge of this stuff on a scale of 1-10 is ”one”!

    Talking about Norsk, what is your advice on nailing the correct pronunciation? Thanks

    Hi Kevin …. I’m French but using your site as I can speak English. I bought myself the Assimil method with MP3 but I think your lessons will be a formidable resource for me as well as an agreable change. Thanks a lot already for the list of 500 words. Could you give me a name of a good Norwegian/English dictionary not too expensive. I have looked on the net but they are awfully expensive if I order them from Norway.
    I want to learn Norwegian so I’ll be able to manage to welcome our Scandinavian customers in my future pub !!
