Lesson 2 - Hallo!




Another common greeting. Mostly used in informal situations, or when answering a phone call.

The vowel «a» is pronounced as the «a» in English «large». In this case however, the «a» is short. A vowel before a double consonant (in this case «ll») is always short.

Eg heiter Maria.

I am named Maria.

My name is Maria.

Eg er frå Fillipinane.

I am from The Phillipines

I am from the Philippines.

Norwegian has three special vowels which you don't find in the English alphabet. «Å» is an «a» with a small ring on top, and is pronounced as the «augh» in «caught». Originally this was a long «a» sound, and in older texts you will see it written as a double «a». Use «aa» if you need to write it, but don't have a key for it on your keyboard.

Eg skal ta fly til Noreg.

I shall take aeroplane to Norway.

I will take a plane to Norway.

The Norwegian word «skal» is the same word as the English word «shall», but it is used a lot more in Norwegian than in English. When translated into modern English, it is usually translated into «will» or «going to»,

A Norwegian «y» is pronounced close to the «y» in «softly».

Eg skal studere i Bergen.

I shall study in Bergen.

I am going to study in Bergen.
