The Norwegian Language
Norwegian is spoken by approximately 5 million people, primarily in Norway, although there are some speakers in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, the UK, Spain, Canada, and the United States. It is closely related to Swedish and Danish. In Norway, no official standard of spoken Norwegian exists, and there are hundreds of spoken dialects. Generally, the dialects are mutually intelligible. Because of the great number of dialects spoken in Norway, there are variations in pronunciation from place to place to place. In the Pimsleur program, we adhere as closely as possible to the pronunciation of the inhabitants of Oslo, the capital of Norway.

Blending in with the locals!
I just came back from a trip to Oslo. I spoke as much Norwegian as I possibly could and I truly believe that this program made that more than possible for me. I had locals as me if I was Norwegian on many occasions and told me my accent was impeccable. I made sure to give shut credit to this method of language learning. I did have some trouble understanding the locals at times, but they reassured that if I moved to Norway with the base I have now, I would be in no time. I'm seriously considering it!
