Norway does not dub films or television for people over like the age of six or seven.Children’s shows are dubbed, but Norwegian adults always watch shows in their original language.I will never forget the ubiquitous sight of Converse sneakers or the atrocity that is a Canada Goose jacket donning just about every person in Norway.Conformity still rules in Norway, but much less than when I first arrived in the country. Norway, along with the other Scandinavian countries, ranks as the top English speaking countries in the world that are not native-English speaking places.Norwegian people aren’t PC (politically correct) and have no problem poking fun at themselves and their lifestyle or traditions. I find that Norwegians don’t really make small talk unless provoked and they often don’t move too far from where they grew up.Because they stick to the same area, even though they will state they moved ‘far away’ with that distance of 45 miles in between their new home and their parents’ home, they keep the same friends a lot of times. But, alcohol in Norway is expensive, adding to its appeal. I have never seen the levels of intoxication on the streets that I witnessed living in Norway.They will likely switch over to English once realizing you’re not fluent in Norwegian, but they will definitely appreciate the effort. they genuinely love speaking it and are happy to converse with you if they make that switch. But after living in the United States and later moving to the complainer capital of the world, Germany, I can officially confirm that Norwegians just don’t really complain.I worked in a cafe for a while and getting a complaint was a rare event.
Same-sex marriage laws were passed in 2009 and there is not a group of ignorant people trying to merge state and religion together by protesting a law that in no way affects them like in some other countries around the globe (ie: my own). It is estimated that only 3% of Norwegians go to church on a weekly basis.
And their English skills are much, much better because of that.
While Norwegians speak exceptional English, it is still wise to learn a bit of their language if you’re looking to move or travel there.
After moving from Norway to other countries in Europe and Asia, I realized that Norwegians are actually some of the coolest people and most relatable people on the planet.
Below I dish on what I learned about Norwegian people from my four years of living in Norway.
When you’re around the same people for so long, I imagine it is difficult to bring someone new into your group with ease. This is obviously a generalization, but I have found it is pretty accurate.
