Swedish VS Norwegian – Language Challenge with Halla.Helle


All right you’ve been waiting for this
for a long time. Let’s do language challenge Swedish versus Norwegian, with Helle. And Niclas who is holding
the camera with his right hand, is going to read the first
sentence in English. The first sentence in English:
the cucumber has cancer. And I’m gonna say in Norwegian?
Yes. Little more Rs. I’m from Skåne. We don’t do Rs.
In Swedish. She’s from Halland. Okay next sentence.
Okay. It is terminal. Okay, last sentence.
The sadness is real. Bosnian was way easier. Cantonese was way easy.
It is so difficult. It should be said that I have like one of
the most common Norwegian accents as well. Which is very Swedish-like.
Yes. It’s not Bergensich.
It’s like you can do the Swedish versus Norwegian challenge forever because there
are so many dialects to choose from. So like one hour from where I grew up you
would get like a completely different thing. How would that sound then? Drammen. Or from Bergen like: Alright, thank you very much for watching
Swedish vs. well a very easy Norwegian. Yeah! Bye.

  1. It would be interesting to see Swedish, Norwegian and Danish together! (Maybe with some happier sentences?) I love how similar the languages are, but how different they sound! And I love the variations in accents too.

  2. Gurken har kreft 🙂 Enkelt att förstå för en Svensk. Det låter väldigt lustigt dock :=)

    Kreften er dødlig. Nåja, även om kräftorna nöp mig i fingrarna när jag fångade dem, så var de inte så värst dödliga 🙂 Det är roligt/morsomt att leka med ord 🙂

  3. Very Interessting. Basicly it is more a matter of grammatical than sound differrences between Bokmal and Swedish, right? (If I may dar to suggest… )

  5. I'm a Spanish American looking to learn a Nordic language. I've decided against Danish (at least for now) but can't decide between Swedish or Norwegian. Could you guys tell me which one would be easier and/or more beneficial to learn in the long run? I love the cultures, history, and languages and would like to visit one day.

  6. Both are pretty languages but I think I prefer the sound of Norwegian more, even if Swedish is the more practical choice (number of speakers, etc). I speak French and German natively and want to learn Norwegian soon!

  7. I didn't know that norwegian language is more similar to swedish, than say spanish to portuguese. But then again, I'm not even sure how similar those are 😀

  8. “Agurken har kreft”

    It sounds like she says:

    “Agurken hold kæft”

    You will only get this if you understand Danish

    Im weird.
