Teach Yourself Norwegian

These vocabulary drills are keyed to the 1997 edition of Margaretha Danbolt Simons' Teach Yourself Norwegian, which should available at any Barnes & Noble, Borders or B. Daltons bookstore. It can also be ordered on-line from or Barnes & Noble. Two versions are available: the book by itself, or the book with two cassette tapes. (Note: Contrary to the information on's web site, Margaretha Danbolt Simons is the sole author of the current edition of Teach Yourself Norwegian. Alf Sommerfelt & Ingvald Marm were the authors of older editions, but Simons' edition is an entirely new -- and better -- book).

Prototype Vocabulary Drills

These are a couple prototype lessons I put together when I was writing & testing the vocabulary drill software. They are based on Marm & Sommerfelt's 1971 edition of Teach Yourself Norwegian. The vocabulary tends, shall we say, to be a bit quaint.
