Want kind of reply are you expecting? I think you need to be a little more specific ...


I'm a native speaker, but by no means a very good teacher. I have often offered people to help them practice speaking Danish, by talking over Skype (or similar) - but until you speak Danish somewhat fluently, I'm afraid I cannot be of much help.

På svenska du kann också säga "vara så snäll".

Man kan bruge ''vær så venlig/sød'' på dansk.
Andre muligheder er, fx ''kør langsomt, tak!" eller "kør venligst langsomt". Men alle disse er kun alternative konstruktioner, der indikerer høflighed.

Brikken har ret, at skandinaviske sprog ikke har en ækvivalent af ''please''. "Vær så snill" betyder ikke det samme.

It's really nice you want to learn Danish, but what I see from your post is just unwillingness to actually make an effort. Instead of making native speakers translate your word lists, you can actually find plenty of vocabulary on the Internet.

Maybe you can start your quest from here:

Good luck!
