Use of verb
A verb is a part of speech that tells us what a person or a thing does. Verbs focus on the actions. Some examples of verbs in English are come, study, see, go, etc.
There were two verbs used in this lesson: å være – to be; å hete – to be called. This is a neutral form of a verb, also called an infinitive. This is the form of a verb we find in dictionaries. Particle “å” before verbs, corresponds to the English “to”.

å hete – to be called
Jeg heter Adrian. – My name is Adrian (I am called Adrian).
