    Comments about Norwegian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    Having lived in Norway in the 1970's as an exchange student, I learned the language, but have not used it (except to mumble about my husband) for some time. A friend recommended Pimsleur (they used it for Japanese), so I bought the program to 1)brush up on my Norwegian and 2) teach my children Norwegian. I thought the course was excellent, even though I only learned one word I didnot know before. My children are enjoying the course and even my 'language-resistant' husband has learned a little. I loved the sense of humor in some of the conversations and, frankly, am worried that the young landy may never get to Oslo. The Norwegian man's sense of direction might explain why the Vikings traveled everywhere -- they asked "Hvilken vie gar til Oslo". My only complaint is that the course is too short -- it would have gotten a 5-star review if there were more lessons.

    Comments about Norwegian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    This product was great for me creating a great foundation in the Norsk language. My Father's side of the family comes from Norge. And this product really helped me learn this language for my heritage. I can talk more with my grandmother in Norsk now. I will defenetly pursue this language until I am fluent. Great Product!

        Used while taking daily walks and also in the car. This method had me speaking right away, and I find that coupled with thumbing through a English-Norwegian dictionary, I can express a good amount of my thoughts. Many more than what I would have expected after 30 lessons. Wish there was a unit 2. It even made me laugh a few times ("are you here with your wife" "yes" "thats too bad" LOL).

          Comments about Norwegian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

          This course is working very nicely for me. It is very convenient and I expect that I will be quite conversational by the time I leave on my trip.
          In the MP3 format, I am able to keep the course with me at all times and can work through the lessons on walks, commutes, and any other time I can manage to get in a 30 minute lesson.
