Speaking in Swedish, you can talk to any of the inhabitants of the Scandinavian countries - and grammar rules read in Swedish, Danish and Norwegian are very similar, and a large number of cognate words will allow you to understand the meaning of the conversation. Swedish will not cause problems, if you speak English or German, because it reminds peculiar mixture of these two languages. However, difficulties still possible: there are many dialects in Swedish, and because Sweden is one of the most liberal countries in Europe, all the dialects have equal rights, so that, for example, the announcer on TV can report the news in their native Swedish variant, and avoid misunderstanding allow ticker subtitles at the bottom of the screen.

Learning Norwegian language you should start if you want to grasp the essence of Scandinavian culture or in touch with the times and fearless Viking kings. Grieg, Hamsun, Bjornson, Nansen, Heyerdahl, the famous Norwegian galaxy goes on and on. And ambitious energy projects such as Stockman, implemented jointly by Norway and Russia make the Norwegian language promising business. Norway has two official languages​​: Bokmol and Nynorsk.
