Other Components of Håndbok i Grammatikk og Språkbruk
Unfortunately, this Norwegian grammar book does not come with a separate workbook. However, it does come with online support material.
The online, interactive support material can be found on the publisher’s portfolio page for håndbok i grammatikk og språkbruk. It consists of a number of interactive exercises that complement the grammar reference book very well.
In fact, every exercise is clearly cross-referenced with a page in the reference book, making it easy to read up on the grammar point before attempting the exercise itself.
