Powerful self-test drills
And what’s more, it’s a powerful drill tool, with several games for self-testing. These include:
- Infinitive quizzes – drill those meanings!

There’s also a nifty performance section, where you can see the verbs you’ve found trickiest throughout the exercises.
Norwegian verb quirks made easy
Typical for German languages on the Indo-European tree, Norwegian features a raft of so-called strong verbs. This means that the infinitive, simple past and past participle forms often differ in their vowel, amongst other things; compare “do – did – done” in English, another German languages. A good example is ‘to see’: in Norwegian, “se – så – sett” (see, saw, seen).
Norwegian Verb Blitz is full of these quirky strong verbs, giving learners plenty of material to chew on. But you’ll also find lots of regular, everyday verbs too, providing a rounded introduction to some essential core vocab in the language.
