As good a starter language book as I've seen.
***About 86.2% of the pupils in secondary schools in Norway receive education in Bokmål, while about 13.8% receive education in Nynorsk. Of 4,549 state publications in 2006 8% were in Nynorsk, and 92% in Bokmål. The large national newspapers (Aftenposten, Dagbladet and VG) are published in Bokmål.***
I like the format, shame its not bokmål.
There are of course the usual language exercises with translation / matching quizzes and so on, but they are presented in full colour and illustrated throughout, making for an engaging, fun course.
As with all the 10 minutes a day courses, one of the big strengths is the wealth of support material you get - sticky labels so you can label the objects in your home and be reminded of the word every time you see it; cut-out flash cards with Norwegian on one side and English on the other, so you can test yourself (or better, get a friend to test you!); and now a CD-ROM with some simple games on it for a bit of extra practice.
You won't be fluent at the end of a course like this, but you will have gained a good foundation of Norwegian vocabulary and simple grammar, which will serve as enough to get by on a trip to Norway, or the basis for further study with a more in-depth course like Colloquial Norwegian: A Complete Language Course (Colloquial Series). Don't be scared of languages - it can be quite a painless process to get into it with a course like this!
I ORDERED THIS BOOK ONLY BECAUSE IT INCLUDED THE CD ROM AS I THINK IT IS NECESSARY TO HEAR A LANGUAGE IN ORDER TO LEARN IT.
