Learn the Norwegian language! Norway is a country that consistently tops the list as the best and happiest country in the world. It ranks high in terms of gender equality, government transparency and practices in sustainability. Norway is known for its majestic scenery and commitment to nature, and it has a long tradition of exploration going back to the Viking Age.  Perhaps you want to develop a foundation in the language before studying or living in Norway, or you want to explore your Norwegian heritage, be able to communicate with a friend, read literature in Norwegian, admire the Norwegian government, or study a language that will make your resume stand out.
