Hi Gabriel and everyone here on the forum. I am a 27 scottish guy finally inspired to cross language learning off the bucket list after hearing the art of charm podcast/ purchasing fluent forever. My chosen language is Norwegian due to family/personal reasons and would be keen to find out if anyone knew of specific additional resources I should be checking out. I will be using anki to create my word list to start off and happy to share.

    i am a native spanish speaker and I am learning norwegian as well (I live in Oslo now)

    i just bought this book (and I haven't received yet) http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Norwegian-Two-Audio-CDs/dp/1444195042/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1421591818&sr=1-1&keywords=teach yourself norwegian

    and also i have the book På vei that has some pronunciation training as well, but I am not sure about if it contains minimal pairs

    at some point I was trying the pimsleur lessons, they were ok but too basic i think, and at the end, they do have pronunciation help for word lists

    I haven't found/bought good frequency lists/dictionaries and a mono-lingual dictionary

I've made twice the progress I made with Spanish in the previous year, have started experimenting with new Anki deck formats and have just begun to enjoy learning from mistakes in spoken and written language.
    Past experience of language learning has been a bit of a mixed bag, with many more fails than successes.
    I've now started to spot occasional spelling errors in fast written English that look suspiciously close to Norwegian. Discover your inner Viking!
