  • Norwegian language Norway has three official written languages: Bokmål, Nynorsk and Sami. Bokmål is based on written Danish, which was the official language of Norway for several hundred years. Nynorsk was created in the 1850s by linguist Ivar Aasen, and is a compilation and combination of some regional dialects. Generally, if you understand Bokmål you can understand Nynorsk fairly easily, and vice versa. Officially Bokmål and Nynorsk have been accorded equal status, although Bokmål is more widely used in Oslo and the larger towns. Sami, a member of the Finno-Ugric branch of languages is a minority language used by the indigenous Sami people. English is widely spoken and you can manage quite well in Norway without knowing any Norwegian. However, knowing a few words and phrases may be useful.
