Norwegian is closer to English than to German. And keep in mind that the (German) Swiss speak quite a peculiar German dialect...

really ?? that great i may travel to norway and  i`m so afraid of language

Many people in Norway speak English pretty well - you'll be fine with English. Nevertheless, it is a foreign language in Norway and people will always appreciate a few words in their own language. Buy yourself a small phrase book and learn some basic words like "please", "thank you", "excuse me", "I don't speak Norwegian" and "do you speak English".

Planning to stay longer for work, study? Do invest in a good language course. Colleagues will be happy to speak a bit of English with you for the first period of time - but after a while they might get fed up with "always speaking English especially for you". Learning Norwegian will be *the* most important step to get integrated in society.

yea yea you right Twan i hope so thanks a lot

I only heard great things about  those guys: www.germanonlineinstitute.com, friends in Switzerland study with them and only tell good things. They have a free trial, so checking them out won't hurt I guess ;) and for self-study I would recommend duolingo. I love to practice with this app. Feels like gaming instead of learning. Hope I could help. Good luck!
