It is a fantastic book! I have never studied norwegian before but now I can speak and read it quite easly! The grammar sections are very complete and tapes helped me to understand the right pronunciation. I found some new norwegian friends thanks to this book,,,,, Now I can write them a letter and understand what they say, It is great!

I'd messed round with Norwegian in the past - using the old (very old) Teach Yourself Norwegian which I found in a second hand bookshop - not the easiest of books to read! I decided to do it properly with the latest edition.
It was easy to follow, entertaining (what did eventually happen between John and Bente?), and extremely informative. The grammar is explained well, the exercises are good, and the vocabulary at least as extensive as the old edition. Indeed, at times it is so entertaining that I didn't want to put the book down!
Last summer, I went to Norway. Before going, I realised I was only really guessing at the pronunciation - though the book attempts to give a guide. I realised I was pronouncing it quite badly in parts, but with the aid of the cassette, I really got it quite good. Whilst in Norway, I had many compliments on my Norwegian, and felt confident enough to use the language in shops, campsites, and in simple conversation with people I met. I've never been to a Norwegian class; just about all that I know came from this book.
The only thing I regret is that there's not more. I'd really love it if Margaretha Danbolt Simons could write a follow-up.

Six weeks after starting this course, from being a complete beginner, I am able to talk out loud about many topics, whether or not anyone is there to answer! The grammar is explained so well that I can transfer it easily to other areas and re-use the vocab to my own ends. My daughter is also learning, and with my 8 units (so far) and her 3 units (and a dictionary and her flair for grammar) we are able to email each other in respectable Norwegian. For me, that proves the success of the course.
My only criticism is that in some units the speaker uses different phrases to those that are transcribed, and some vocabulary is listed which isn't used. I hope these errors will be rectified in the new edition which is due out soon, because it is confusing to hear something different. Also, I was disappointed to find that on the second tape, many parts of the units are omitted - perhaps a CD would manage to fit all the items on? Still, it is very nearly a perfect course. Brilliant, in fact. The author should write some short stories to follow up!

For anyone who is considering the Norwegian language as a hobby (like I am) or for more useful purposes, then I'd suggest getting this book. The dialogues tell the story of an Englishman named John and a Norwegian girl named Bente. There are also excercises and very grammatical points. It's not too extreme in both, so it mixes the two. Since Norwegian is a "tonal" language (not to the extent of Chinese) like Swedish, I'd really suggest buying the version with the tapes. And if you're interested in Scandinavian languages, but not any in particular, then Norwegian is the way to go. It's close to Danish and Swedish.
