Learn About Pronouns in Norwegian Part 1

A pronoun is called as pronomen in Norwegian. A pronoun is something that can be used in place of a noun. Pronouns are one of the most important part of the grammar and you should learn these well.

Below are some examples:

Han(pronomen) spiser frokost.
He(pronoun) eats breakfast.
Hun(pronomen) kjører bil.
She(pronoun) drives car.
Han(pronomen) leser boka.
He(pronoun) reads the book.


Pronouns can be classified into groups. In this lesson, we will learn about the first group known as personal pronouns.

Personlige pronomen

Personal pronouns as the name implies means that they represent people (or living things). They can be classified as subject form or object form as shown below. Learn these well because you will use them a lot in your Norwegian conversations.

      Hi Jasmin,

      I am staying in India so I don’t know someone. But you can find many online websites that provide online friends who will help to learn Norwegian. And you can talk and listen to them.

      Try searching the Internet. I may post such information in future posts.
