Alex: Katten

Basic grammar, listening and understanding

Alex og mamma kommer hjem. På trappa utenfor huset sitter en søt katt. Katten ser på dem. Alex vil klappe den.

Mamma: Kom inn, Alex! Vi skal spise.

Alex: Katten vil også komme inn.

M: Den kan ikke komme inn. Den er ikke vår.

A: Men den er så søt. Den vil ha mat.

M: Den får mat hjemme. Kom nå!

De går inn. Mamma drikker en kopp te og spiser brød med skinke. Alex får et glass melk og ei brødskive med gul ost. Han drikker melka og spiser brødet.

A: Kan jeg gå ut nå?

M: Er du mett allerede?

A: Ja da, jeg er god og mett.

Alex går ut. Katten sitter ute på trappa og venter på ham. Alex klapper den. Han tar ei skive ost opp av lomma. Katten spiser osten.

Alex liker katten. Nå har han en venn.

More learning

As you have noticed, we are not displaying the text in English any more as we believe that you can now understand the basic grammar in this course with just the help of the vocabulary list.

However, we don’t want you to panic if you have forgotten these basics, so we have included the translation in English under the “Downloads” section. We hope though that you will consider giving it a try and translate first on your own before jumping directly to the English version.

Finally, as we did in course 1, we have also added Flashcards after each section of text, so that you can practise what you have just learnt with the aim to maximize your learning.

Start with Alex!
