I have a holiday planned for later this summer to Norway and have been trying to learn a little of the local lingo.
I have several phrase books which are all reasonable but not a patch on this one which dates from the late 1980s, if I recall correctly.
The newer versions concentrate on giving you stock phrases to use, but don't give much idea of how the language is formed. I'm a bit 'old school' and prefer a proper setting out of the grammar etc, though.
It covers most things that you might need help with - things like at the airport, customs and passport control, as well as shopping and social interactions with the locals.
