Introduction to Norwegian:
Lesson 5

Alright. Let’s learn more Norwegian words:

Norwegian for to be is å være.

Now that’s a mouthful, but you don’t have to worry about pronouncing it very often: just like in English, the words am and are are spelled and pronounced differently from to be. The good news is, they are a lot less different in Norwegian:

Norwegian for am, are, is is er.

You could imagine that the word to be å være is å e instead, and then add the ending r to it.

Try this out in a sentence:

I am Johan.

Answer: Jeg er Johan.
