Introduction to Norwegian:
Lesson 42

The usual answer is I have it fine. You already know how to say that. However, for the answer to this question, Norwegians traditionally use another word for good. Let’s learn it:

Another Norwegian word for good is bra.

Think all is good with my bra, thanks bra-the.

You can use both god and bra to mean good almost interchangeably but Norwegians tend to use bra in I am doing good (this is in contrast to Swedes, who use the word bra all the time). You could think of bra as the word for fine while, god is good if that helps you to remember it.

How would you answer to the question:

I have it good.

Answer: Jeg har det bra.
