Innledning

Velkommen til norskleksjon 127! In this lesson we practise reading from Norwegian food information.  I find it very helpful to learn Norwegian when I include it in my daily tasks (like going shopping).  However, I know that some of you don’t have the luxury of popping down to the store and practising your Norwegian on the shop assistants.  But the next best thing?  Cook using Norwegian language recipes.  Here is one of our foodie posts: Good Norwegian Food Websites It lists a whole range of popular food websites in Norway and gives an outline of each one.  You can even subscribe to some of these sites to get new weekly recipes.  This is a good way to use your Norwegian but you can make some good Norwegian food too! (However, most of the recipes are very modern – but also have that certain ‘Norwegianness’ to them.)

Hope you enjoy the lesson.

Up and Down
Lyrics by Sharon MacDonald

Up and down are places
That I’m supposed to know;
Just like in and out,
Off and on, and high and low.
But I’ve noticed when I get there,
All tired and out of breath,
There’s just another up and down
To other places left!

Chorus:
Up and down, high and low,
Off and on, fast and slow,
Back and forth, big and small,
Here and there, short and tall.

Use Lexin Dictionary or Google translate to help you.  Remember when translating, words do not have to be exactly translated, they only need to have the same meaning.  (You know lots of words that you can use instead of the exact translation – see how you go.)

127.2

Using Norwegian – i Butikken
The most place where I have had to use my Norwegian is at the shops.  When you first live in Norway you have to read everything to know what it is.  This can make shopping take a little longer than normal.  The trick is to get used to scanning for the information you know.  (Remember, Norwegian looks like English spelt badly, so it is a little easier than other languages to read like… Chinese.)

a. Here is a waffle recipe in Norwegian.  See if you can find all the words you already know through these lessons.  Check with the answers at the end of this lesson:

vafle-recipe
matogdrikke.no

If you have a waffle machine, see if you can make the waffle recipe.  First translate it into English on your own.  Then translate the words you don’t know using a dictionary.

Toro – Saus

Spørsmål
b. Answer the questions about the gravy pack on your own (guessing is part of learning language).  When you’ve finished just look up some of the words that really stumped you.

toro-gravy

What is this gravy specifically for?

How many minutes does it take to make?

How many portions per bag?

How many packs are there in the box?

Who is the company that makes them?

What do you think ‘økonomi’ means?

toro-gravy-back

What is the top ingredient’?

What can you have this meat gravy with?

How much energy is in each 100g 0f gravy?

Where is the contact office?

How do you store the product?

What are the two serving tips?

How do you make the gravy?

What else could you add to the gravy ‘if you wish’?

How much do they suggest is one portion?

127.3

Grammatikk – Ut
When talking about something that you see it is easy to think you would write/say:

Bananene ser gode.  (you think you are saying: The bananas look good.)

However, this sentence is incorrect in Norwegian.  What this sentence is actually saying is:

The bananas see good!

This is because ‘se’ means both look and see – and in this context it means ‘see’.  So, in order to make sense of your meaning the word ‘ut’ is used to clarify that YOU think the bananas look good and not the BANANAS see good.  So this is how the sentence should read:

Bananene ser gode ut.

Likewise with other items:

Bordet ser godt ut.

Flaska ser god ut.

Sjokoladene ser gode ut.

Skriv
a. Write in the correct ‘adjektiv’ form into the spaces:

billig –

Den bananen ser ______ ut.

Disse bordene ser ______ ut.

Det huset ser ________ ut.

dyr –

De ser ______ ut.

Denne lua ser ______ ut.

Ser dette skjørtet ______ ut?

Fortelling
b. Write a story about what you regularly do when you go shopping – do you stop for coffee at a cafe?  Do you go shopping with friends?  What do you buy? Clothes?  Food?  Electronics?  Furniture? What do you say to the cashier?  What does the shop assistant try to sell you?  Using all your word and sentence knowledge (pronouns, prepositions, adjectives, nouns, verbs) describe your usual shopping experience and share it with us in the comments section below.
