Language: Questions

Here are the key words to use when asking questions…watch out for “Hvor” …they’re tricky and can catch you out depending on whether you use “Hvor” on it’s own or “Hvor” followed by “mye” or “mange”…

Hva = What

Hva slags = What kind

Hvem = Who

Hvor = Where

Hvor mange = How many

Hvor mye = How much

Hvordan = How

Hvorfor = Why

Hvilken = Which (masculine/feminine)
Hvilken dag kommer du? = Which day will you come?

Hvilket stoppested er det? = What is stopping it?

Hvilke = Which (plural)
Hvilke dager går du på kurs? = Which days go you to the course?

Når = When
