Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Norwegian Phrase Book & Dictionary (Berlitz Phrase Book)?
For British English speakers only Mar 11, 2010
Be forewarned, The phonetic spelling pronunciations written throughout the book are assuming that you speak with a British accent in order for you to be pronouncing the Norwegian word correctly. This doesn't affect too many words, but you may pick up some incorrect pronunciation if you're not careful. The accompanying audio CD (I bought mine in a local bookstore and it came with a CD) can help with this. Otherwise it's a fine book for travel. It has a very limited dictionary, as expected for it's size. The Menu Reader section has foods listed alphabetically in Norwegian, thus it can be time consuming to find the word for a food you would like to say in Norwegian - although they are broken up into some categories.
