So, I may have (fortunately) evaluated my level wrongly. I feel a bit more comfortable
about reading now. Today Google Translator wasn't working properly, so I couldn't get the
translation in Portuguese to Dag's subtitles. And yet I could understand the show with no
problem! I only translated some unknown words I couldn't infer from context or weren't
used in a different context. I also had much less trouble with Framtidslandet's text and
I'm paying more attention to my sentences deck. Not to mention the audioblog podcast
which i'm doing in no time. Do I foresee a change in status?! ;)

It got a bit easier to read from Framtidslandet (short stories mostly about Christmas).
On the other hand, I'm not a big fan of Hellfjord, I find it too gross. It's only 7
episodes so next week I'll probably be doing Lilyhammer, which has the drawback of having
too much English.

I'm about to finish the first season of the Advanced Audioblog, so 1 more season to go
and I get a free slot for Norwegian in the morning, even though i'm still going to study
it rather intensively considering 20-30 min series and a book with stories.

The other day I came across this website rather serendipitously: Bridge to Norway and I couldn’t help remembering what you wrote here on your log a few weeks ago:

I don’t know whether your situation with Norwegian has much changed in the meantime, but if it isn’t, you may want to have a look at that website where apart from a grammar, a dictionary (I haven’t checked whether these are any good: I’ll leave it to you if you’re interested) etc, you can find reading texts at different levels of difficulty. Each text has a rather extensive English glossary and may be helpful to bridge the gap between textbook materials and authentic Norwegian books.

Anyway, you seem to be going strong with Norwegian, so keep up the great job!

Hi! Wow, you are really doing a fantastic job with your Norwegian. If you feel like practising a little, send me a PM and we can connect on Skype.

Congratulations on finishing Appelsinpiken! I have sworn to myself never to read anything by Jostein Gårder again, but I have heard good things about this book.

Thanks Emme and Cristina! I'm looking forward for more practice, it's time I write and
speak a bit now.

Oddly enough, the situation did change in the past days. I've checked the texts and
they all seem easy to me =D , so I think I'm ready for contemporary resources. Nowadays
I tend to look up 1 word every other sentence from a contemporary novel, or a news
item, so I think it doesn't seem that painful anymore.

Cristina, may I ask you why no more Jostein Gårder? Feel free not to answer, too =D I
didn't like Kabalmysteriet that much, but since the books deal with subjects I want to
read about somehow, I keep going. It's like in French, I read an author that sounds
rather dry and superficial but the plots always contains something intriguing which
keeps attracting me to read other books.

Det går fint med de norske studiene. Jeg skal bli ferdig med leksjonene fra podcasten
neste uke, etterpå vil jeg lese en kort grammatik. Jeg lurer på om jeg skal slutte å
bruke lærebøker deretter. Hvis jeg bestemme meg for å slutte med dem, skal jeg begynne
med å lre tysk - faktisk skal jeg starte med tysk på nytt. Jeg lærte litt tysk åtte år
siden, men i dag er norsken minn mye bedre enn tysk. Naturligvis vil jeg fortsette med å
lese romaner og se på norske serier - jeg har det veldig bra med disse daglige
aktiviteter.

Watch it while it's fresh!! (And still available).

Looks really great, though I'd need to translate subtitles to get the most out of it.
