2.4 To go
The verb å gå means to walk:
|Vi går til Fjordvik.

In order to express that you are going somewhere, but not necessarily walking, you need to use another verb like å dra (to leave):
|Vi drar til Fjordvik.
We are going to / leaving for Fjordvik (by any means of transport).
In some contexts, å gå is also used for to go:
|Jeg går på norskkurs.
I go to a Norwegian course.
|Bussen går til Fjordvik.
The bus goes to Fjordvik.
We also use å gå in some other expressions:
|Hvordan går det?
How are you? (Literally: How does it go?)
|Det går bra.
I am fine. (Literally: It goes well.)
