Why is Norwegian an important language to learn?
Imagine wandering through a gorgeous playground that is not filled with jungle gyms or swings but has amazing landscapes and numerous tourist destinations instead. Norway is all that and more, and that is the reason why so many people choose to go there for vacation. When you are in Norway, you can spend your days spotting glaciers, hiking through the mountains, participating in outdoor activities, and seeing the abundance of wildlife everywhere that you go. As intriguing as the country areas are, you should not discount the cities, despite the busyness and crowds.
Visiting Norway is much easier when you learn Norwegian, because you can then communicate with the five million plus people who can speak that language. This is the easiest of all the Scandinavian languages, but once you are fluent in it, you can easily figure out both Swedish and Danish. There are many career opportunities in Norway, but the only people who get those positions are those who can speak the language in addition to speaking English. After learning Norwegian, you will find that you can appreciate the local works of art, the architecture, and the food much more. In fact, everything seems better once you know what everyone is telling you and your world will suddenly seem that much brighter!
