Norwegian Pronunciation, Please Answer!

I understand there are two forms of written Norwegian, Bokmal and Nynorsk, and I plan on learning Bokmal before Nynork, but I also understand that those are written standards, not pronunciation standards and pronunciation is based on local and regional dialects. So, what dialect should I learn as my key to pronunciation?

    I would suggest that you learn to speak the kind of dialect closest to bokmål. It differs form town to town with certain words but basically it's just saying the words out like they are.
    They talk with this bokmål dialect in most eastern towns, the ones on Østlandet.
