Norwegian Survival Phrases. Lesson 1.
How to say thank you in Norwegian.
Hello, hei. My name is Filip and I'll be your language teacher and cultural guide throughout this introductory course.
Wherever your destination may be, manners are a must! And in this respect, Norway is no different. So in our very first lesson, we'll be teaching you a simple phrase that is bound to come in handy throughout your trip to Norway. I can't stress this enough: a little bit of language can go a long way!
In Norwegian, "Thank you," is Takk. Takk. Let's break it down by syllable: takk. Now let's hear it one more time: takk. You can emphasize takk by adding mange in front, which literally means, "a lot." You could say mange takk, which would be equivalent to, "Thanks a lot," a more polite expression than just takk. Again, mange takk. Mange takk. Let's break it down by syllable: mange takk. now lets hear it once again: mange takk.
In Norwegian, there are other ways to express one's gratitude but they are all variations using takk, which is a verb, and adding other expressions like the adverb "thousand," can make the expression very formal like, "Thank you very much." There will be occasions where you will really want to show your appreciation and politeness. During occasions such as these you can use the number tusen and repeat it before adding takk. "Thank you very much" in Norwegian is tusen takk. tusen takk. Lets break it down by syllable: tusen takk. Now lets hear it one more time: tusen takk. The number tusen "thousand(s)," is used to make the phrase very formal. This is followed by takk, which literally means something like "(A) Thousand(s) of thanks." Now lets hear it one more time: tusen takk.
Okay, the closeout todays lesson, would like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll provide you with the equivalent of the phrase and you're responsible for shouting it aloud. You have a few seconds before I give you the answer. Sรฅ lykke til, which means good luck in Norwegian.
Thank you

Hei Katie!


Thank you is said the same in both nynorsk and bokmรฅl, which helps as sometimes the words can be quite different!


Thank you for your question, and please enjoy the rest of your lessons!
