Lesson 13 - Invitasjon til fest

Invitasjon til fest

Invitation to party

An invitation to a party


Hei Ole. Det er eg, Maria.

Hi Ole. It is I, Maria.

Hi Ole. It is I, Maria.


Vil du komme fest i kveld?

Will you come at party in evening?

Would you like to come to a party tonight?

«Kveld» = «Evening»

«Natt» = «Night»

However, norwegianers call it «kveld» far later into the night then we do in English. Therefore, «kveld» must often be translated into «night».

Sjølvsagt! Kor då?

Of course! Where then?

Of course! Where?


Hos meg.

At me.

At my place.

You can refer to the place a person is living only by a pronoun.

Eg skal vere der.

I shall be there.

I will be there.


Bra! Vi skal verekjøkkenet hos oss.

Good! We will be at the kitchen at us.

Nice! We will be at the kitchen at our place.

«Kjøkken» is a neuter noun. Neuter nouns use the article «eit», and you use the ending «-et» to make them definate. Note that in this ending, the «t» is mute.

Det passar bra. Dokker har eit stort kjøkken!

That fits good. You (plural) has a big kitchen!

Sounds good. You have a big kitchen!


Skal eg ta med dei godteria vi kjøpte i går?

Shall I take with them the candies we bought yesterday?

Should I bring the candies we bought yesterday?

«Å ta med» = «to bring»

Godteri» is also a neuter noun. The ending «-a» makes a neuter noun definate plural.

Ja, ta dei med! Nam!

Yes, take them with! Mmm!

Yes, bring them! Mmm!

You can say «nam» to something which tastes good. Either just a single «nam», or more often «nam nam».
