Hi,

I've come across this sentence in a coursebook that I attached below:

'It is great here in Norway.'

Does it sound wrong to you? Isn't it supposed to be 'It is great to be here in Norway.'?

Thanks.

They are both correct, but the two phrases actually have different meanings. Can you figure out what they are?

Sorry, no. :oops:

What's the difference?

Norway is a wonderful place.

I am having a good time here in Norway.

See the difference?
