Thanx, Polarfrog!s

A Danish course? Cool! That's a part of the "language planet" I've never visited, and I think it'll be great to finally have the opportunity to have a look around it. I'm in. ;)

I don't really have time to learn Danish, but I'll keep an eye on this course. I think it's interesting. :)

Froggie, is it always possible to start later? Because I don't want to learn Danish before I've reached a certain level in Norwegian (it's so easy to confuse them) and I don't think I've reached that level yet. I think when I've completed my Norwegian course, I might give Danish a try.

Hi Car!
Sure it is, I have only written one unit yet, which I willpost here, and the other will be also posted hre, so you can start whenever you want. Norwegian and Danish are VERY similar, except the pronounciation, so it would be too confusing studying both at the same time. In fact, my Norwegian has drowned in all the Danish I learned...

Ditto. :) I find Scandinavian languages to be interesting, as little as I have looked at them. :P

As I mentioned before, I had never really "explored" anything related to Scandinavian languages — although I've got a couple of Swedish and Norwegian films taped, I'd never paid attention to the languages themselves, for instance. After getting into the thread, though, I started goggling around and looking for more information on Danish. Delightful new world! :) The history, the sounds, the spelling, the structures... Thanks a lot for having had me get into it, Froggie dear! :)

I am happy that youlike it. Certainly Danish is not a beautiful language, but i like it very much, because it means so much to me, as my friends, my town and my time in Denmark. Iam terribly "homesick" and I am happy that we can talk here a bit about this cute language :)

Froggie, would you happen to know about any places where I could download some sound files with samples of the Danish glottal stop? I'm having a hard time "reproducing" it, especially in pairs where it's necessary to distinguish the meanings (such as "hun" and "hund")... :(

And, even though this may sound silly, would you also know about any handwriting image samples around the web? I confess I'm quite curious about how to write ø, Ø and Æ in cursive... :oops: The only sources I could find myself were samples of 19th century handwriting, or even older than that... I guess I could figure æ out, though, but I'm happy Danish doesn't use œ, or else I'd probably mistake them all the time. ;)

Tak!

Hej Psi!
I don't know any Danish recource on the net, sorry... But I will try to find some. In Southern Denamrk they don't use the glottal stop, so I am not good in that either, I never learned it conciously, just by speaking and listening... There is certainly a differencebetween the words "hun" and "hund", the "u" in hund is short and there is a glottal stop after the "n". I will record a sound sample of the tekst in the unit 1 when i am home again, here in cologne i do not have the facilities :(. Do you know how to pronounce a glottal stop?
In handwriting it is almost impossible to distinguish between æ and ø.....

I'm sorry, but did you intentionally spell "text" wrong, or am I lost? :o

Oh, sorry for not having written anything about it, teacher Froggie! :oops:

Well, the first lesson was very nice for me. There was the dialogue, with a glossary and a full translation, then some grammar (which I love! :) ) and then even more new words, followed by an exercise. Some might say this is 'traditional', but I like it very much. :) Oh, yes, and you even wrote something about pronunciation — that was very interesting, as it's hard to find such information online. :) I wouldn't mind you adding even more grammar to the lessons, Froggie, but since I know some people hate grammar, I'm not going to suggest it. ;)

I'm looking forward to receiving the second lesson! Kunne du lære mig dansk? :)

Danish is coooool!

I noticed some things are similar to Dutch, but at least what we have learnt during this lesson is easier. I got a mess with pronounciation... I'll have to listen to some Danish music to get used to it!

Do you know some Danish bands?

I'm ready for lesson 2, you can send it to duil@correu.vilaweb.com
