For your money you get a slim booklet with lots of useful Norwegian phrases with their English translations and phonetic pronuncuation. This is accompanied by an hour-long CD which demonstrates how real Norwegians say these things. So far, so good.

The presentation of the material is a little odd, however. Sections 2-4 focus on a detailed survey of numbers, telling the time and days of the week. This is very old-style teaching and a touch irrelevant when you really want to say "Help! I have fallen in a fjord!" or "Do you serve any fish which is not raw?". After that, the material perks up and recognises that English-speaking visitors to foreign lands will spend most of their time eating, drinking, and interrogating the locals about their personal lives. There is also a handy section on new technology so you can visit Norwegian Internet Cafes with a degree of confidence.

This is, at heart, a tourist phrase-book with aspirations to be a little more. But, it is a fair and inexpensive introduction to basic Norwegian (and, of course, you should be able to make yourself understood in Sweden and Denmark, too).

A bit of a downer is the final entry which reads "Det har skjedd en ulykke" - "There has been an accident" - but we are not told what happened next or how to call an ambulance; would have been far more useful than all that counting.

Good for a quick introduction to Norwegian just as it says. It sticks to the main stream things you do need to know but a bit limiting.

Very helpful and easy to use in the car, with the I-POD, and good to use when one is too tired to actually consciously study. One can learn by osmosis!

This CD was great to listen to and repeat. A great help when we arrived in Norway. The Norwegians appreciated our attempts too!
