Lesson 2 - 7

Another easy thing

In English the -ing suffix is used to express that an action is happening during a longer period. This kind of suffix is used in many other languages too.

Examples: I am walking, I am talking, etc...

In Norwegian you can simply forget it. This is the translation of the above sentences:

I am walking. Jeg går.
I am talking. Jeg snakker.

As you see, this system doesn't exist in Norwegian, you simply use the present tense. Knowing this, it should be easy for you to translate this question and answer (remember the punctuation):

What are you doing?

I'm learning Norwegian.
