The Easiest Language to Learn

While other opinions were expressed in the comments, the Page F30 blog makes a convincing case that Norwegian is the easiest language for English speakers to learn. If you happen to be an English speaker willing to accept this challenge, we've got some tools you can use.
First, check out Byki, an online service the library subscribes to so that you can learn languages online at home. To do so, head over to our site, click on Online Articles and More on the left, and after logging in, scroll down and look for Byki in the Language section.
Byki may want your library card number again, but after that it will ask you to create a user name and password. Once in Byki, look for the language menu on the right, and select Norwegian. After that, you can click on the Overview and Grammer buttons near the top of the screen for info about the Norwegian language, or dive right into the flashcard lessons.

We also have books and audio materials that you can check out from the library.
