It may feel a little bit slow, but you actually need it to get the vocabulary memorized.

Excellent Program

If you could sum up Norwegian Phase 1, Unit 01 in three words, what would they be?

Easy, Enjoyable, Interactive

Any additional comments?

I found this program to be very effective and easy to follow. The fact that this first unit was free was a no-brainer in deciding to try it out. It was so enjoyable that I bought the full Unit 1-30 version (where I will write a fuller review when I have progressed a bit further).

Unit I of Pimsleur Learning for Norwegian

This self-study audiobook was actually helpful! I may not have the pronunciations right but I can tell you how to say every part of the conversation in Norwegian. I think the Pimsleur learning technique works because it will surprise you with something random after having focused on a new segment (in this case "I understand a little bit of Norwegian" then a quick slide back to "Excuse me"). The only thing I would ask be improved upon is the pronunciation of each word. I still cannot pronounce the Norwegian word for English. I'm trying but I can't seem to pin point how it is pronounced exactly. Maybe if I run through it a few more times I will get the hang of it but for just hearing this lesson once I have remembered a lot.
Highly recommended if you're trying to passably learn a foreign language.

it is just a ample, but I like it.

The rest of the course seems to be available for one credit per every five lessons. It is recommended to do one lesson per day.
