We have adopted an objective and efficient approach to learn how to speak a language easily and quickly. We suggest you start by memorizing words, phrases, and practical expressions that you can use in everyday life and that will be useful when traveling.

Culture on a Daily Basis

Danish culture may have already filled your childhood with adventure and magic through Lego and Hans Christian Andersen's tales, which showcase the inventiveness of these people.
Other notable cultural figures include the intense films of Lars von Trier and the literary masterpieces of Karl Gjellerup and Henrik Pontoppidan, both Nobel Prize winners in Literature.

A Giant of Sustainable Development

A member of the European Union, Denmark forms the Kingdom of Denmark with the Faroe Islands and Greenland.
Denmark is a major player in the history, economy, and culture of Northern Europe. It is one of the most developed and wealthy countries in the world, ranking fourth in terms of HDI and 36th in terms of GDP.
Beyond the exceptional quality of life, business opportunities in Denmark are remarkable. The country is a world leader in sustainable development and its economy is heavily focused on foreign trade, particularly in environmental technology, design, the electronics industry, healthcare, and more.

Make a Success of Your Stay in Denmark

Whether you are going to spend a few days with friends for a leisure trip or are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful than being able to slip in a few words in the language of your interlocutors. They will appreciate your effort and be certainly more willing to help.

How to Succeed in Having Good Pronunciation Within a Week to a Month?

Often perceived as a difficult language, Danish does pose some challenges in achieving correct pronunciation, but all that is required is some effort and a few tips to get started:

  • C: Pronounced [s] before e, i, y, æ, or ø; and [k] before a, o, u, or another consonant.
  • D: Not pronounced after l, n, or r, and before t and s.
  • H: Not pronounced before v or j.
  • R: Vocalized after vowels.
