Introduction to Norwegian:
Lesson 23

So we know how to talk about needing (å trenger), wanting (å ville), having (å ha) and so on. The problem is, we can’t use this knowledge fully until we learn to talk about the things that we are doing. For this reason, let’s learn some more words. On the upside, we will be learning words that are similar to those in English (because a lot of the words in Norwegian are anyway).

Norwegian for a house is et hus.

Look at this et again. This is the same et from det. This et actually stands for a (the indefinite article in English).

You could say:

I want to have a house.

Answer: Jeg vil ha et hus.
