Haselnuss: Excellent answer, thanks for that.

I agree that working systematically through a book, like you did, would be beneficial. I have to consider if that will be worth the time and money for me.

My Italki teacher told me that my pronunciation is good. That is in large part due to the fact that Norwegian and German pronunciation are fairly similar. However, the teacher I've got doesn't seem to have much insight into intonation patterns. It is not something I really "need" to work on to make myself understood, but it would be fun to have a more native-like intonation.

For me, I think I'll use the Frölich Deutsch video as a model for practicing and not spend too much time on it.
