Hello all, I have been studying Danish for a while and I’m trying to test out and improve my knowledge base. I have done this by translating newspaper articles. As you can see, there are a lot of things that I’m not sure on so can you let me know what’s correct and incorrect with my sentences/translations. Please indicate where I went wrong in my analyzing the sentences and grammar. For example, if I mess up a grammar pattern, please let me know this and then indicate the correct way. Thank you very much.
My goal for studying is to be able to talk to people on the street and to my friends. Please feel free to list any places where I can find and translate very colloquial Danish articles, essays, etc.
I break up the articles so there's not a lot of text in one post. I'll post other articles after we finish with each one.
