If you want to progress quickly from the basics to understanding, speaking and writing Norwegian with confidence, then Teach Yourself Norwegian is the book/CD course for you. Although aimed at those with no previous knowledge, it is equally suitable for anyone wishing to brush up existing knowledge for a holiday or business trip. Key structures and vocabulary are introduced in 16 thematic units progressing from introducing yourself and dealing with everyday situations to writing a letter and making a complaint. In the later units you will become familiar with many aspects of Norwegian life as well as the language. The emphasis is on communication throughout with important language structures introduced through dialogues on the accompanying recording. The course is centred around two main characters: an English student, John, and a Norwegian girl, Bente. You will follow them through their ups and downs in a variety of situations during a year in Norway. There are plenty of exercises to practise the language as it is introduced and tips throughout to help with grammar. Cultural information tips give useful advice and information for anyone planning a trip to Norway.

Teach Yourself Norwegian is written in Bokmål. Bokmål is the standard Norwegian language, used by approximately 85% of Norwegians. It has developed from Dano-Norwegian, which originated during the 400 or so years when Norway was part of Denmark.

The new edition retains the tried-and-tested structure of the lessons but has been updated to include a brand new double CD of the audio material. Popular features of the previous edition have been retained:

- an English-Norwegian vocabulary,

- a glossary of grammatical terms,

- a taking it further section directing you to further sources of real Norwegian.

The book (ISBN 0340 887559) and CDs (0340 887575) are is available separately.

* comprehensive - covers a wide range of topics and language structures

* enjoyable to use - a storyline running throughout the book keeps new language in context

* easy to use - the language is presented in thematic units
