Dear all,

I bought this precious book and the accompanying audio CDs around 2 months ago and I am currently reading page 100 of the book. It is amazing! I have had so many Norwegian learning books from "P�??�??�??�??�??�??�??�??�??�??�¢??�??�??�??�¢??�??�??�¢??�??�¢??�??�?�¥ Vei" til "Norwegian in 10 minutes a day" , but I am telling you this book is by far better than any other book that I have soon in this area. I do highly recommend it specially for self study purposes. Lykke til alle sammen (Good luck in Norwegian) og tusen hjertelig til Teach Yourself Norwegian :)
