Task 1 Short Answer
Task 2 Long Answer
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.
