JAH!

In norway, when people say "ja" many of them breath in at the same time. I really have no idea how to explain it. But for us exchange students here, it is quite a weird thing at first. A lot of norwegians also use the word "mmmm" when they speak, kind of like a conversation filler. So we decided to make a video of us trying to do this, yes it is pretty much a joke, so no offense to anyone norwegian! Its supposed to be funny:) We really love norwegians!

  3. hi. this is kind of off topic but anyway; a while ago you wrote in norweigan in your blog, but you stoped after to days. Why? was it too hard or?
    I envy you a lot, I have been living aboard too but with my family so its a totally diffrent thing ,and I would like to exhange someday too, but its probobly too hard, because I turn 18 soon and then theres basically no options. besides au paires.
    Ha det.
    Du skriver bra.

  5. I stopped writing in norwegian because all my friends and family in the US said they couldnt understand haha. So I just decided it was easier to write in english so everyone could read it! You should definitely study abroad if you get the chance:) I was 18 when I left to come to Norway, so maybe you could travel with AFS? Or you can study abroad in college! I think I will do it again then:) I love it soo much! Its my first time actually really traveling, being out of the US.
    Tusen takk

  9. That is really funny ... and very true. I lived with a girl from Noway for a while, and when she was on the phone she sounded exactly like that!

  10. If I were to wager a guess at why, I’d say that users don’t “browse” forms. The interaction style users engage in with forms is different, and requires its own study and design best practices.

    study abroad
