How long have you been learning Danish?
I’ve been learning the language since September 2010. 


Has it been an easy language to learn?
I came to Denmark as an adult, so to be honest I found it quite difficult.

How different is it from your own language?
It’s very different because a Danish word can have 2-3 different meanings, which can confuse things.

Have you started speaking Danish in your everyday life here?
Yes, because of my job I have to speak Danish every day, which is a great way of learning.

What advice would you give to others about to start learning Danish?
I recommend that they start lessons straight away and continue to both speak and write Danish every day.

Did you know

The Danish alphabet has 29 letters and uses the basic 26-letter Latin alphabet plus the three additional letters Æ, Ø, Å.
