Finding yourself with extra free time lately? This is a great opportunity to *learn some Norwegian or improve on the language skills you already have. Beginners can learn the basics on our website. (Members, log in to hear phrases pronounced by native speakers.) Intermediate learners looking to expand their comprehension skills can practice by listening to the following podcasts for kids. The pace tends to be more learner-friendly, and the speaking is clearer than in podcasts geared toward adults. Kos dere! (Enjoy!)
