In this Podcast we talk about sentence structure from Norsk Dialog.  We look at word placement in both basic statement and question sentences.  We also introduce a simply compound sentence with conjunction.

These podcasts are designed around the My Little Norway Norwegian Lesson Series. For us to provide a wide variety of listening and vocal exercises, it is essential for listeners to view the text in focus. This text can be found in each podcast post, or in the associated Norwegian Lesson post.

This podcast is taken from Norwegian Lesson 103.  The length of the podcast is 7:20 mins.
