Utdrag
Now I will give examples of workplaces in Norway where English is used. Norwegians must use English language when they travel or study abroad, or work in firms or organizations with international contacts and activities.

Many Norwegian firms even use English as the main language at work. The same is often the case in workplaces with foreign bosses or foreign co-workers.

Besides that, workers in Norway often must-read manuals and other documents in English.

If we look in our largest Norwegian newspapers, you will find that many firms and organizations advertise jobs in English.

They obviously expect the job applications to be written in the same language. All you must do is turn on a computer and access the net to find out how important English really is.

Here I will explain the advantages of using English at work. In the future you may well have colleagues who don’t speak Norwegian, which means your working language will sometimes be English.

Also, Norway has tens of thousands of foreigners coming to the country each year, as guest workers, immigrants, refugees, or simply as tourists.

No one expects them to have learn Norwegian, but most of them will expect us to speak English. And it’s important that you can talk to them.

This is the advantages of using English at work. Now I will describe the challenges of having to use English at work. After work, businessmen and women often meet their contacts for dinner, cultural events or trips.

The small talk, of course, is in English. Sometimes this can be a challenge for Norwegians when they have contacts quite different cultures.

I will discuss of whether me would like to work in one of these workplaces. Well, I don’t like to work one of these workplaces right now because, my English is not good.

First, I think that I must learn English and second, I have to full confidence to talk in English with someone. After that I can think about to do job in this workplace.
