There are many ways and methods to learn a foreign language.
As far as I am concerned I tried to learn Norwegian and encountered many difficulties mainly those related to pronunciation and grammar. So I decided to acquire as much vocabulary as possible and try later on to synchronise that with grammatical rules. For this purpose I opted to use translation of so common, familiar and thematic phrases and sentences, from Norwegian to English and vice versa and I hope this can helps to learn Norwegian language. This could be helpful to many who learn Norwegian because there are some who can master grammar but lacking vocabularies and expressions.
