Hei Norsk!

In spite of the biting cold and the icy wind of January we must endure here in Hamburg, we are working very hard and we have a new language for you to check on bab.la: Norwegian Bokmål and its English-Norwegian (and vice versa) dictionary.
Come to think of it, Norwegian is a rather appropriate language to add in January 🙂

And so, if you are planning to go skiing to Norway, this could not come at a better time: find how to say ski jumping, make your own vocabulary lessons to learn how to order your food in Norwegian or have a break and take our quiz about how to flirt in Norwegian!

Unlike what you may think, Norwegian is not so hard to learn, especially for English speakers: similar roots, easy grammar and almost no changes in conjugation! What are you waiting for?
Well done Meri for all the hard work you put into the launch of our 24th language. We hope you enjoy using www.babla.no 🙂

Happy 2013 and may your resolutions include learning languages!

Merhaba, hola, hallo, hello!

We welcome our Turkish users and say hola to our German users! As you might have noticed we added two new dictionaries to our dictionary list: Turkish-English and German-Spanish. We say: let’s keep up this speed, five language combinations done, about one zillion more language combinations to do. OK, our mathematics brain Patrick says it’s actually 23.891.328 combinations based on 6912 known languages. Fair enough, then we have about 23.891.323 more to go. I would say: enough for the next couple of months 😉
