Introduction to Norwegian:
Lesson 18

Alright then, let's learn the next thing:

The word for shall or will is skal in Norwegian. It is used to form the future tense just like the English shall was used for the future tense!

English kind of stopped using the word shall for the future, and, most of the time, will is used. But Norwegian hasn't. You use skal where the English will (or sometimes shall) would be when you are talking about the future. How would you say:

I will have it.
