Lesson 10 - På veg til Ikea

veg til Ikea

On way to Ikea.

Going to Ikea.

Ikea is a big store in the North of Bergen. It has cheap furniture, things for your house, and Swedish food. New students usually go there to buy the things they need for their new home.

Ole og Maria erIkea-bussen.

Ole and Maria are on the Ikea bus.

Ole and Maria are on the Ikea bus.

«Ikea-bussen» could be written is «Ikeabussen» instead. But sometimes you would like to insert a hyphen into a compound word to make it more readable.

Det er billig Ikea.

It is cheap at Ikea.

Things are cheap at Ikea.

Det er ein svensk butikk.

It is a Swedish shop.

It is a Swedish shop.

Dei har alltid vore populære.

They have always been popular.

They have always been popular.

Bussen dit er gratis.

The bus there (direction) is free.

The bus which goes there is free.

You can use the word «dit» to describe a direction towards a place.

«Der» = «there», but «dit» = «towards there»

Correspondingly we have the words «her» = «here», but «hit» = «towards here»

Det var kaos Fantoft i dag. Politi overalt.

It was chaos at Fantoft today. Police everywhere.

It was chaos at Fantoft today. Police everywhere.

Det er kjekt å vere borte litt.

It is nice to be away a little.

It's nice to be away a little.

«Kjekt» may be a tricky word to pronounce correctly if you are new to Norwegian. English doesn't have a sound similar to the «kj»-sound in the beginning of the word, and it's hard to say it correctly if you are not used to it. This sound is a kind of a mix between a «k» and a «sh»-sound, same as the «ch» in German «nicht».

You should try if you can say it correctly. But if you don't mange to do it, don't worry. Just use a «sh»-sound instead. The «kj»-sound is on decline in Norwegian, and many young people also use the «sh»-sound instead.

å vere, er, var, har vore

to be, am/is/are, was/were, have/has been

to be, is, was, has been

We will save most irregular verbs for later in the course, but this verb is so important that your should learn it early. Memorize it now!
