This might not be much of a problem, but there were some mispronunciations on the listen and translate sections of the Danish for English speakers course, most notably of 'fyrre' (pronounced as though it were the word 'fyr' - very different words). I only notice this because I speak Danish (and am taking the course for fun), but it could be a problem for people who don't speak Danish trying to say '40' and saying 'young man' (or possible 'fire' as in 'to fire somebody') instead.

Tusind tak. Have been taking the course now for a couple months and although not there at 'fyrre' - have heard the word out in the wild and was curious.
