Read this article to find out some of the reasons why you should learn Norwegian through becoming an Au Pair.
1. Key to learning other languages
Learning a Scandinavian language such as Norwegian is a good starting point to learn other Scandinavian languages, like Danish and Swedish. They are not exactly the same but they are very similar, so it would be easy for you to at least understand them.
Additionally, as it is not a very commonly spoken language, competency in Norwegian is highly requested, especially in business. It is true that many Scandinavian people speak English perfectly, but being proficient in Norwegian will make you stand out in many different ways.
Plus, it is apparently much easier than German, so how hard could it be?
2. Beautiful language
Many people say that Norwegian is a very musical language for the different tones that are used when speaking. It also contains a lot of interesting words that are intertwined with the culture of the country. The most famous example of this is the amount of different words used to talk about the different types of snow: slippery snow, no snow, soft snow, etc. This definitely makes it much more interesting to learn!
3. Norway has the best quality of life in the world
Other than offering great natural landscapes, the northern lights, beautiful fjords and wonderful cities, Norway is recognised as one of the most peaceful countries in the world, which offers high standards in terms of quality of life. By moving there to start your Au Pair adventure, you will be able to experience the culture and lifestyle firsthand and, who knows? Maybe move there permanently one day.
4. Fascinating culture and history
Being fluent in Norwegian will definitely give you the chance to travel to Norway and get to know this amazing country.

You will be able to understand the wonderful history, traditions and customs directly through your language skills and you will be able to communicate with your Norwegian Host Family and become an additional member of their family.
