Absolutley, swedish danish and Norwegian are (as I'm sure you're aware ) very closely related. Most swedish people have an easier time with norwegian though. It's really not that much of a difference. The difficulty with Danish is the pronunciation they have which makes it hard to snap up what they say, but once you get past that the words are just about the same. Same thing goes for norwegian but they have an much easier an proniunciation. Sure there's the odd word and they way that sentences are spoken. For me personally I find norwegian very charming.

And we all get to make fun of the Finns, which is always a lot of fun. Though Finland and Sweden share a special bond due to history, we might enjoy it a bit more
