You will often encounter alternative material, on the same subject or aspect. For instance, by registering to the Computer-Assisted Listening & Speaking Tutor (CALST), which is gratis, and where you can do so through either facebook or Google mail, you will not only be able to hear the pronunciation of each of the 29 letters of the Norwegian alphabet, but also be able to see the lip movements for each of them ( In addition, this site (CALST) provides similar pronunciation for 43 other sets of subjects and terms associated with daily objects and activities etc.

To a certain extent, you are therefore, able to select what material you want to use. Of course, if you already possess some knowledge of the language you can freely proceed to the subjects you want to become familiar with, or improve your knowledge of.

Since you best learn the language by concentrating your learning within the language itself, and minimizing your reliance on translation from your given language, you will find that the lessons will be formulated progressively in Norwegian, after you have achieved a grasp of the fundamental aspects and words, gained through images, textand captions.

Iterative use will aid memory and retention. Make sure to carry out regular reviews of the material that you have studied, as your retention and familiarity will greatly depend on it.

To enable you to check your own progress there are various quizzes (multiple choice, fill-in-the blanks, etc.). Flash cards represent another useful utility to reinforce vocabulary.

The grammar is dealt with either separately, or as an integral part of the lesson or the given material.

There is no officially sanctioned standard of spoken Norwegian. Norwegians speak their given dialect, some of which may be difficult to understand, especially by foreigners.

Finally, you will also find a compilation of resources that you may find useful for your study.
