Flashcards to read The Little Match-Seller more easily in Danish (Work in progress)

Hi everyone,

So following my previous post (https://www.duolingo.com/comment/19058981$comment_id=19083553), I have started doing a course on Memrise to help people learn the vocabulary of The Little Match-Seller, Hans Christian Andersen's famous short story. That is a lot of work, but a very good way to learn new words. I tend to get bored easily though, and I might need your help to finish set up this course!

If anyone is interested in helping me, give me your id on Memrise and I will add you to the contributors.

Link to the original short story in Danish: http://www.andersenstories.com/da/andersen_fortaellinger/den_lille_pige_med_svovlstikkerne

Translation in English: http://www.andersenstories.com/en/andersen_fairy-tales/the_little_match_seller

If you like the idea but don't want to work on that specific story, there are lots of short stories by Andersen and the Grimm brothers on these websites:

Anyway I will let you know when I am done, which might be in a few weeks/months.

Sadly, I don't have the Immersion tab. It is supposed to appear next to the Discussion tab, right? Because I only have Home, Activity and Discussion.

You might have it on Italian but you won't for Danish. You have to get a little sneaky to upload Danish Immersion articles.

I tried to upload this article and I am not entirely sure what uploaded, but here it is -

Were I not pressed for time at the moment, I would try translating a little of that to figure out what went wrong where? I have been translating a couple of articles myself, here is one about a boy named Holger -

And please, correct my translations of the little cat girl story
