Danish Vocabulary

Video to listen to the most common Danish words

Why and how to learn Danish vocabulary with audio?

Hans Christian Andersen's tales have rocked all of us as children. So we all have a mind full of magical places, directly inspired by the landscapes of this country. Beyond these magical aspects, Denmark is one of the most important pillars of the world of sustainable development: it is a model to follow.

With our vocabulary sheets, we suggest you to go further in your curiosity for this region. Essential expressions will be easy to learn (Godmorgen for "Hello" for example), and you will arrive early at the stage of learning more practical vocabulary (Er der nogle gode steder at spise ? for "Where are the good places to eat?" for example). You can visit many cities with varied landscapes if you have the time, so don't hesitate to ask about hotels (Hotellet) as soon as you arrive !

These are some media suggestions to help you familiarize yourself with vocabulary, accent and speaking speed, so that you can have the best possible experience during your first stay, in addition to our sheets!
