Lots of similar words
In English and Norwegian there are a lot of words that are fairly similar. After all, the vikings invaded Britain in the Middle Ages, which means that a lot of Norwegian words came into the English language.
Three funny letters: Æ, Ø, Å
They are at the end of the alphabet (so don’t look under A if you need a phone number in Ålesund).
In the video below you will learn how to pronounce the letter Å and how to write the letter Æ (feel free to practice this a few times on paper). You will learn the pronunciation of the other two letters later.
How to write these letters on your computer
The best way is to install a Norwegian keyboard and switch to it whenever you are working on this course.
