Do you know if they are used in other parts of the world?

I just finished the 3rd lesson. I realized that I couldn't do the lesson without entering the special characters, and I thought that it may be useful to others here.

Jeg liker å hjelpe.

Sorry to disturb guys, but here is an online dictionary
 
Allow me one little comment. The correct term for "learn" is "lære" - not "erfare" which has a related meaning, but is normally not used in this connection. 
 
Usage of learn/lære:
to learn Norwegian = at lære Norsk ~ He is learning = han lærer
 
"Erfare" is normally used in the sense: I have learned that this guy was xxxx - It was brought to my attention that xxx, and so on.
In Denmark the word is a bit outdated (but still valid), and I believe that applies for norwegian as well - you only rarely hear a young person using it.

Yikes, I'm already falling behind.  So, are we going to have like a day or two for catching up once a week?

Sure we can do that. Do you want to set up a specific day for that like Fridays or something?

What language group is complete without its members worshiping the country where the language is spoken?

Here is a beautiful slide show with the modest name called,
Norway: The Most Beautiful Country in World

If you look around on the related videos, you will find one called, "Norwegian Beauties." I thought it was going to be about the beautiful architectural and natural sights of the country. Instead it is what I would have called, "Norwegian Cuties."

Hvordan gammel er dine to barn?

Yes, that would work for me.  I guess whatever day is best for everyone.
