Not upto the usual Colloquial Standard,
This review is from: Colloquial Norwegian: A complete language course (Colloquial Series) (Paperback)
The first thing in using a book to learn a language is you feel confident about the book and I don't with this one.
For example the scripts of the dialogues are not complete and don't feel to flow. One says for example here you are not expected to remember then it finishes with a test on them (Numbers pg 25)
Also not sure who uses cassettes these days so why can't the book give references to the actual sound clips.
The grammar certainly could have been written better, the description of word order(pg 22) doesn't seem to mention object??
Final dislike is there is not much of a specific vocabulary for each chapter.
Feels sort of cobbled together.
As said could do a lot better.
