I'm interested in learning both German and Norwegian (not simultaneously, of course). With which one should I start? Will it be easier for me to approach Norwegian after knowing some German? Or the opposite?
Norwegian is closer to English than German is, but it'll be much easier to learn Norwegian after German than it would to learn it first. Then you can also branch out and learn every other Germanic language.
>>7327250 From a grammatical perspective Norwegian is the easiest to learn (from my experience). Although like >>7327280 said you should start with whatever you want to learn the most.
Although keep in mind that Norway has two standard written varieties which vary greatly from a non-native speakers´point of view.
If you think from the perspective of literature you should start with Norwegian since large chunks of it is yet to be translated into English. German literature has had more exposure and is thus more available.
>>7328445 Well, I got interested in Norway through black metal, Norse folklore and all that stuff. I'm abstractly thinking of moving there (or to Germany) one day, seems like a beautiful land and a good country to live in.
