Hi, I am Kevin. I am a 31 year old guy from Mumbai, India. By profession, I am a software developer working with mobile and POS terminals.

Why the Learn Norwegian blog?

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’ve always enjoyed learning languages so I thought of trying to learn the Norwegian language. Like most people who try to learn a language, I searched the Internet to find resources for learning Norwegian. While I found some basic lessons for beginners, it was hard to find good resources.

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.

Learning Norwegian was just a hobby till one of my friends 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 started this website to provide beginners with free Norwegian lessons. I also have a goal to create a good list of free and paid resources available to learn the Norwegian language.

I am surely no expert in the Norwegian language but the lessons that I post will surely help beginners. These lessons will also be quite useful to students who intend to appear for the Prøve 1 and Prøve 2 level of Norwegian tests.

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

Please feel free to subscribe to my free Norwegian lessons by email that you can study at your pace, as well as free access to my eBook, 500+ Norwegian Nouns.

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

If you have any comments, questions or would like to share some resources, please feel free to contact me.

    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 !!
