Language skills

In addition to having have a good and thorough understanding of the Norwegian language, both orally and in writing, I speak English fluently and write quite well. These webpages are a good example of my English skills. In a pinch I can also make myself understood in German, and understand some (if they keep their tempo down, that is). Learning Spanish now.
