Benefits of learning Norwegian

Whether it’s to level up in the workplace for a new position in Norway’s pioneering hydropower industry, or to converse like a local when visiting the majestic fjords, learning Norwegian has never been faster or easier thanks to Babbel. For work, travel, friendship, adventure or just life, teaching yourself Norwegian has countless benefits. The Babbel App shows users how to learn Norwegian the easy, fast and convenient way. With a free first lesson, speech recognition technology, live instruction options, courses for all levels, an ad-free interface, and multiple ways to learn on any device, Babbel uses cutting edge methods and technology to make learning Norwegian accessible and rewarding.

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.

Learn Norwegian with courses from beginner to advanced levels

Classroom instruction with a teacher and other students is the most traditional approach to learning Norwegian. But what if you had the classroom in your pocket? With Babbel Live’s fully accredited native speakers, you do – no commute necessary. For learners who want even more flexibility and value, Babbel offers flexible online Norwegian courses at all levels with a free first lesson (on every course, not just one!), and a quick and a quick placement test to ensure the content you learn is tailored to your language level. Best of all, the Babbel App is available on mobile, tablet, and desktop and the interface is always ad-free for an uninterrupted Norwegian learning experience.
