22. Prometheus Bound
Prometheus Bound

It all depend of their parents.. if the parents have been active, and try to learn children the language in Norway, many if not all have a great ability to learn both their native language - and Norwegian perfect.. But some parents just doesn't want their children to learn to speak and write Norwegian before they go to school, and then they hit the wall.. Teaches have trouble learning the kids what they need to know, and the children doesn't learn what they are supposed to learn from young age.. Some manage to get true the school and pick up enough to understand it, some never manage to "crack the code" and end up never really learn the language at all..

And as one have pointed out here, in a small population like Norway with just 5 million speaking the language, it is difficult to learn a language, it is far more easy to knit together, and be inside a small community, than to embrace the new world, and to learn Norwegian properly..

And, it is maybe not easy to get to know Norwegians, as we are not the most easy to get to know in the first place.. But as one from US once said to me, if you really got to know a Norwegian, you get a friend for life, but dam you have to work hard to get there...

And that is maybe a part of the problem, that Norwegians are not easy to get to know, and therefore it might be little difficult to "break the code" about how to act around Norwegians..
