Converse with 5 million native speakers
Why learn Norwegian? Teaching yourself Norwegian with the help of Babbel’s tailored app unlocks access to the 5 million native speakers in Norway. Plus, Norwegian is considered one of the easiest languages for a native English speaker to learn. (Imagine the structure of English with tons of cognates — or similar words — and fewer irregularities!) However, with Babbel speech recognition, learners will discover not just how to learn Norwegian, but how to pronounce it: Norwegian includes some sounds that English doesn’t have – but mastering new sounds becomes easier with practice. Not only is learning Norwegian relatively easy, speaking it offers a head-start to understanding other Germanic languages like Swedish, Danish, Dutch and German. With Babbel, you can teach yourself Norwegian without going to classes, hiring a tutor or investing in expensive software. Babbel’s affordable subscription offers many ways to learn, from real-time classes in your pocket with Babbel Live, to hundreds of hours of interactive courses, podcasts and other content at every level, available across all devices.Test first lesson of every course for free
