I want to try practice the english language :blush:

    You are doing great, nothing in your post suggests you are not a native English speaker.

    We have been in the same boat, we moved to france from england 5 years ago. I could speak around 20 words of french. Google translate literally kept our heads above water for a couple of years. Now i only use it occasionally when i come across a word ive not heard before or to verify official documents.

    Only Norwegian word I know is "lutefisk".
    Verb or adjective?

    A Dutch friend has a restaurant and offers it during summer for the north European tourists. I had some, ok, like cod but with a squidgy texture.

    Hmmm...I'm not missing much.
    Ever tried Surstromming?
    Or rotten shark?

    Tasting surstromming is a once in a lifetime event, once is enough for me. But I'm told some people like it
    I have eaten shark, but not rotten, I'll eat almost anything edible but draw the line at rotten food

    Ive had oysters, i don't particularly like the texture, but i do have mussels now and again.

    As a joke friends brought us some casu marza back from their holiday last year. They didn't tell us what it was until we had eaten some. The aftertaste put me off a second bite

    Not had any of the rest but beef brain was common when i was a kid

    I won't link what live monkey brain is about.
    Let's just say that you will never ever try it.
