"Something even easier?" But the header says "verb"?!
Verbs aren't easy!
Your first surprise! The easy thing is,
believe it or not: verbs!
The first verb you are going to learn is the most frecuent one: to be.
But tell me now: Why is it so easy?
If you are one of those who have struggled themselves through heavy verb conjugation
tables in the French or German classes or whatever,
your fear of verbs is understandable. You have probably been thinking: "Why
have they been so stupid that they have invented 6 different forms of each
verb in each tense? Wouldn't it be enough to have one form for each
Here is what you've been waiting for! In Norwegian that's exactly how
it is. Take a look at the table of the verb to be in the present
å være (to be)
det / den er
||you (pl.) are
As you see, the verb in Norwegian looks the same through the whole
column. That makes it 6 times easier to learn a verb in Norwegian than in
most other languages!
