Norwegian Course for Beginners: The Mystery of Nils

Learn Norwegian – Enjoy the Story.
(Level A1/A2).

Are you tired of boring Norwegian courses?

We are. Definitely. We know that learning Norwegian is hard work, but why shouldn‘t hard work be fun? That‘s why we created The Mystery of Nils: a Norwegian course based on a coherent story instead of dull dialogues, which starts very simply, but develops into a fascinating novel. Can’t stop reading? Well then – you will have to learn Norwegian!

This is the story:

Erna Langvik gives her eight year old granddaughter a special birthday present: a doll inspired by the traditional Norwegian mythical creature Nisse. Nils ‒ as the doll is called ‒ leads a happy life with his new family in Oslo. But due to an accident, Nils finds out that he means a lot more to Erna than just being a birthday present. Without knowing it, he has been carrying a painful secret, and during an adventurous trip to Northern Norway, he helps Erna to make one of the most important decisions of her life.

Relevant vocabulary
We have carefully selected the most frequently used words in the Norwegian language and made sure that the story is primarily made up of them. Separate texts and exercises focus on conversational topics that will prepare you for living in Norway. Recorded video of the vocabulary will make it easy for you to pronounce new words correctly.

Visualized, simple explanations
Grammar is a headache? Not with The Mystery of Nils. Uncover the structure of the Norwegian language with casual yet comprehensive video explanations, pictures, and a lot of easy to remember examples.

Practice online as much as you wish.
Repetition is the key to learning a language.

How much time should I dedicate to this course?

Since this is a monthly subscription, you can dedicate as much time to this course as you wish and learn at your own pace. There is no risk of "falling behind", and you can repeat as much as you want. However I do recommend that you work with this Norwegian course every single day - even when you have just a few minutes. It is much better to learn 10 minutes every day than one hour once per week.

I have another question that is not answered here.

Are the 26 sections of the course only made available month by month?

No, once you purchase the course you have access to all 26 sections right away. You have full access to the course so you can also jump between lessons. This means also, the faster you go through the course, the cheaper for you!
