The Pimsleur® Method has worked for millions all over the world. Totally portable; simple to use; Pimsleur works so you don’t have to. Norwegian Phase 1, Unit 1 contains 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. The lesson contains full practice for all vocabulary introduced in this unit. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Norwegian.

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
This self-study audiobook was actually helpful! I may not have the pronunciations right but I can tell you how to say every part of the conversation in Norwegian. I think the Pimsleur learning technique works because it will surprise you with something random after having focused on a new segment (in this case "I understand a little bit of Norwegian" then a quick slide back to "Excuse me"). The only thing I would ask be improved upon is the pronunciation of each word. I still cannot pronounce the Norwegian word for English. I'm trying but I can't seem to pin point how it is pronounced exactly. Maybe if I run through it a few more times I will get the hang of it but for just hearing this lesson once I have remembered a lot.
Highly recommended if you're trying to passably learn a foreign language.
Easy, Enjoyable, Interactive
I found this program to be very effective and easy to follow. The fact that this first unit was free was a no-brainer in deciding to try it out. It was so enjoyable that I bought the full Unit 1-30 version (where I will write a fuller review when I have progressed a bit further).
Yes, because it is a good complete language course.

He is precise and repeats himself a lot
It may feel a little bit slow, but you actually need it to get the vocabulary memorized.
