My girlfriend and I are working on learning Norwegian. It is not a particularly difficult language, as languages go, and it is closely related to English, our L1.
Have any studies been done on how we can most effectively practice our conversation skills one-on-one? If so, which method is the most effective, primarily in terms of vocabulary retention?
I'm hoping someone has published something like "1000 words to know to talk about your day," like the Swadesh list, but for day-to-day conversation.
