Danish is such a maverick language, it's probably best to just approach the pronunciation from a fresh perspective. But really, that should be the only major difficulty. There are some minor differences in the vocabulary (-else vs. -ing differences bl.a.) and some different idiomatic constructions, but otehr than that, they are the same, AFAIK

The similarity between the two written languages is what makes me think I should start Danish from scratch, even if I speed through it a bit - just to create a "Danish" section in my brain. Something that would make it possible for me to write and speak Danish, real Danish, not just overly Danish-accented Norwegian.
