The “Beginner Episodes” is a podcast series of fifty episodes with small essays and dialogues about travels, art, literature, science, history, vikings, greek mythology and the good life in a square with friends. The episodes are centered around the grammar points from the “Basic Grammar” series on the Practice Norwegian Podcast, included in summary form as the second part of this book.

From Episode 5:
– Hei, hvordan går det?
– Bra! Vi er på kafé igjen.
– Så deilig. Er dere ute?
– Ja, vi er på Piazza Santo Spirito. Her er det sol og fint.
– Spiser dere mozzarella igjen?
– Ja, en dobbel panino!

From Episode 49:
I dag våknet Maurice tidlig og gikk til jobben i den lille bokhandelen sin. Han måtte være der kl ti, men ville stoppe på et lite torg og ta en kopp kaffe i solskinnet først. Våren hadde nettopp begynt, så det var ekstra fint å sitte i solen og se på trærne med de små grønne bladene. Han skulle lese litt i en bok, og kanskje han burde skrive litt i notatboken sin også, om nye ideér til historier eller prosjekter i bokhandelen. Han kunne prøve, tenkte han, og se hva slags inspirasjon vårsolen ville gi.

Note: This book is primarily a companion to the member podcast and not intended as an stand-alone book, though it could well be used for independent language practice with 50 small essays about travels, art, literature, history, science, vikings, and the good life in Norwegian!
