5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 17 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Teach Yourself Norwegian Book/CD Pack (Teach Yourself Complete Courses) (Paperback)
Overall, and excellent and fun experience!
It is well organised and in manageable chunks.
I worked through this in 4 months, doing approx 1 chapter a week, spending approx 8-10 hours on each chapter. It helped to keep my own vocab book, and write down useful phrases in a phrase book to aid learning. At the end I typed up my phrase book to consolidate.
Ok I admit I still struggle to understand spoken Norwegian simply because it is so fast, ie faster than the dialogues on the CD, but this is inevitable and probably the case with learning any language. However I can pick up words, and once someone realises Im not Norwegian, I can hold conversations as they slow their speed etc.
The topics and phrases seem so useful for real life situations.
There is a storyline moving through the book, and the dialogues sound quite 'real'. Infact my family understood the 'gist' of the plot, and were waiting for the next 'episode'!
I go on holiday to Norway and hope to live there one day and this is a great start. I now plan to read articles on the web to expand vocab, and to try the specific conversation packs that are part of the same course.
