Why Speak Norwegian While Traveling?

A Land of Natural and Social Wonders

With around 5 million inhabitants, Norway is a dream destination with its fjords, forests, glaciers, and islands that inspire the imagination of many authors and screenwriters around the world. Beyond these natural wonders, the country is extremely attractive to researchers thanks to its successful policies of social capitalism.

These policies have made Norway one of the richest and most developed nations in the world, ranking at the top of the HDI rankings and among the top 50 in terms of GDP. With embassies in 86 countries and diplomatic relations with many others, Norway is a major player in international negotiations, mainly regarding peace and diplomatic relations.

A Rich Language and Culture

Composed of dialects, Norwegian has two official languages: Bokmål and Nynorsk. Linked to the Danish occupation period, Bokmål is the language of books and administration, being prevalent in urban areas. Nynorsk, on the other hand, is the heir to the language of the countryside, which has not been as influenced by the Danish crown. Whether in one language or the other, during a visit to Norway you can immerse yourself in the works of great names of Western culture, such as composer Edvard Grieg and painter Edvard Munch.

So, do you dream of experiencing the dazzling landscapes of Norway, discovering the legends of the trolls, or reading Ibsen's classics in their original language? Start learning Norwegian now with Loecsen!

Make a Success of Your Stay in Norway

Whether you are going to spend a few days with friends on a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful than being able to slip in a few words in the language of your interlocutors. They will appreciate your effort and be more willing to help.

How to Succeed in Having Good Pronunciation Within a Week to a Month?
