Knowing adjectives in Norwegian is a powerful skill. It can make it easy to have a conversation about different topics by simply knowing some key words such as “good”, “bad”, “right”, “wrong” etc. Adjectives are words used to describe or modify another person or thing in the sentence for example: I am happy. Norwegian is easy.
