Introduction

Velkommen til Norwegian Lesson 115! This is the last lesson about ‘time’.  I’ve added in a fun exercise of reading a Norwegian TV-guide.  It is good to get into the habit of using your Norwegian so I will be introducing more Norwegian sites for you to visit and poke around in in the lessons to come.  If you know of any Norwegian site that you’d like to share with us please feel free to post them in the comments section below.

Hope you enjoy this short lesson.

Les
a. Have a look at the TV guide below.  Are there any shows you recognise?

In Norway the government funded TV station is NRK.  They have two main broadcasts NRK1 and NRK2 and radio stations including NRK Radio.  TV2 (2) is the leading private broadcaster and TVNorge (N), which is entirely owned by ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG – a European media conglomerate is in fourth place.  Norway, of course, receives other broadcasts from cable and satellite TV.

Skriv
b. Answer the questions below in full Norwegian sentences.

Hva er det på NRK1 klokka seks-tjuefem, om morgenen?

Hva er det på TVNorge klokka ti over halv tre?

Hvem er programleder på TV2s Tabloid?

Hva er det på TV2 klokka halv åtte? Hva slags program er det?

Hva er ‘NRK nyheter’ på NRK2?

Hva er det på TV2 klokka fem over halv to?

Hva kommer etter klokka to på TV2?

Hvilket program liker du å se på klokka sju om kvelden?

Hva er det på NRK1s barne-TV?  Når er ‘Bear in the Big Blue House’?

Hva slags program er på NRK2 klokka sju?

Grammatikk – Hvilket, Hvilken og Hvilke
Even though ‘hvilket’ is a spørreord it is affected by the gender of the noun in the sentence.  This word has neutral, masculine/feminine and plural variations.  This is the only question word that does this.  We will be moving onto gender next week.

Gratulerer!  If you are reading this you have made it this far!! lol.  If you have done all the lessons you’d be now half way through Nivå 1 in the Norwegian standardised system of learning Norwegian.  As mentioned, next week we are going onto gender – you better sit tight because your whole Norwegian world is about to explode!  Things like gender and tense will change your whole perspective of the language.  It might be a little daunting at first but the more you practise the more it will become normal.  So, enjoy your weekend ;D
