    Completed this course after learning Norwegian on Memrise for a few months. I found it got difficult near the end where there was lots of grammar dumping. I wish it'd been explained earlier and more spread out.
    It's unclear what certificate you'll get, whether it's a language one or just a participation one, so I didn't get it.
    Wish it was made clear on this page too.
