    I'm off to Norway later this week for a wedding. So I thought I would watch Youtube to get just the absolute basic phrases, altho I'm told that every Norwegian speaks English. Ok I found this. It struck me as incredible funny. Seriously, why should people in their own country speak someone else's language? I just know the cab driver is going to take me a ride and they wont find my body until the Spring thaw. ...oh I have been advised to bring a sweater cuz it can get cool at night....in AUGUST! Srsly? ... icon_eek.gif



    Are there any RJers in Trondheim?

    Well, let me search for Bokmål.

    I know Google translate doesn't understand what the fuck she writes on Facebook. Maybe that's why.

    The instructional video was fun, shes a good teacher and the language seems easy to learn to learn.

    Funny thing is I've always heard Dutch people will talk to foreigners in English even if foreigners talk to the locals in Dutch. Apparently some insist that it's just easier for both people to speak English than to have a foreigner speak mediocre Dutch.

    I would learn some phrases for sure.. I do speak Spanish but I live on the border with Mexico so it's practical.

    Btw.. That guy was probably Irish, not American, he had an accent.
