Besides English I speak Norwegian, which is my mother tungue. Like other Norwegians I can also understand and kinda speak Swedish and Danish. (Danish is much harder than Swedish, though.) I also know a little German, and even less Icelandic.

I tried to teach myself German a couple of years ago through German music and stuff, and I was getting quite good at it but then I just stopped. Can't remember why. And earlier this year I started to teach myself Icelandic online. It's funny to see how similar Icelandic and Norwegian sometimes are. Icelandic basically just sounds like a really strange Norwegian dialect.

Other languages I'd love to learn are Italian, Russian and Chinese. Or Japanese. Not sure. But probably Chinese.

So if everything goes as planned, I'll end up speaking 9 languages. Mwhahaha!

Apparently there's an Iceland landmark called the "Eyjafjallajo(dots over the j and o)kull." Yeah, I seriously doubt I'll be picking that language up anytime soon.

I'm learning Spanish, but who isn't nowadays?

Eyjafjallajökull. Yeah. Respect for the journalists who could pronounce it like it was a piece of cake in the time when that ash cloud was news.
Fyi: You can put two dots on letters by shift + button with two dots + the letter.
Oh hi. So, how are you holding up? Because I'm a potato.

Tenkte jeg skulle demonstrere mine fantastiske norskkunnskaper når jeg først var her inne. Sikkert ingen som har peiling på hva jeg skriver, med mindre noen bruker Google translate eller noe sånt. Uansett: slik ser norsk ut. Jeg kunne ha demonstrert mine engelskkunnskaper også, men iogmed at alle her allerede snakker engelsk så tror jeg ikke det hadde vært like fascinerende.
