Chris never explains exactly what he means by speaking fluently, but I would like to have conversational Norwegian skills in six months. In his talk, Chris says knowing 3,000 English words allows you to understand approximately 98% of daily conversation. This is where I would like to be in six months.
To become fluent in six months, I am going to be using mostly online FREE resources to learn Norwegian. Additionally, I will have my Norwegian fiance, Karoline, as my language partner to practice at home. My goal at the end of six months will be to speak to have a great conversation with Karoline's grandmother who does not speak English. I have known her grandmother for almost 5 years and have never truly had a conversation with her without an interpreter.
This blog will be the place which keeps me on track. I will highlight websites I have found with great language learning information, feature unique FREE online language learning tools, and most importantly, share my experiences in the journey to learn a second language.
