Failing to Understand your Scandinavian Neighbours?

I've discussed it with people many times and now I finally found an investigation that shows that norwegians are best at understanding the languages of their scandinavian neighbours. In addition to that norwegian is also the language that danes and swedes best understand, swedes prefering modern norwegian (nynorsk) over the old variant (bokmaal) since the latter one has more in common with danish.

Myself I'm still struggling with danish and I've decided to take a course now to speed up my learning...
