Fortaeller mig om borer i Danmark. Jeg tror mig har danske forfaedre. Sorenson.

I want to go back to Denmark again. It has taken me 20 years to 'find the time' to learn Danish.

I feel so lazy now.

Seriously though, the internet wasn't available 'back then' and with duolingo i can learn so quickly and even brush up on my other language skills! I am excited to say that I am ready to go back to Denmark....possibly find me a nice Danish husband and just live there forever. :) lol

Couldn't hurt to visit anyway. xoxo Does anyone know how difficult it might be to move to Denmark?

I wish sometimes I would have tried to stay when I was younger, when times were simpler....

Does anyone know how difficult it might be to move to Denmark?

It depends. If you work in a specialized/very "in-demand" field, then no, it probably wouldn't be that hard. If you qualify for Family Reunification, probably not.

Otherwise, you're probably going to have to immigrate like everyone else, or basically:

\1. Find a job in Denmark. There are specific requirements for these like "it needs to pay over x amount" OR "it needs to be off this list", or etc., but I don't have the full details off the top of my head.

OR

\2. Study in Denmark (higher education).

OR

\3. Marry a Dane (lol).

I'm sure there are more ways of moving, all dependent on situation of course, but these are the three "main/general" ways.

I can understand what you're feeling though! I was in Denmark this past January and leaving was so hard :(

I think you have an error in the first sentence in your title. At least, I don't understand what you mean. Do you want to tell us about living in Denmark? Or do you want us to tell you about it? Or something third?

The second is much better, but you've confused mig/jeg, which is easy to do. The correct would be "Jeg tror, at jeg har danske forfædre".

I wonder, though, why your last name ends in -son and not -sen, as most Danish last names do. On the other hand, I don't think Søren is a common name in any of the other Scandinavian countries.

I meant to say, Tell me about living in Denmark. I believe I have danish ancestors. lol.. I didn't do any research on those sentences. I was just up late and babbling online probably.!! ;)

I heard a story once why my last name has -son instead of -sen. It goes something like they came into America from Canada and our name got changed then. I have thought about changing it back, but.....meh.. no real reason.
