I thought I would give Danish a go. I am doing French but some days I stall and want to give up all together. So perhaps a change might spur me on. I have an uncle in Denmark and we only ever write in English, so it would be nice to try and impress with some Danish...............Here goes

Good luck with your learning! I've only just started learning Danish myself, and so far it's quite interesting. :)

Good luck! I've been enjoying Danish over the last few months. It;s challenging but also a lot of fun. Watch out for bears on bikes and those sneaky badgers!

All in good fun --- when a bear gives birth to a duck and a little boy eats a spider, you can't help but chuckle. Offbeat sentences like those helped imprint the words in my memory.

As an English speaker Danish seems a lot more intuitive than many of the Romantic Languages. I have been enjoying it a lot! Good luck!

Well three units in and I am really enjoying it. The duolingo speaker is a lot clearer in Danish than the French speakers. Still getting to grips with words that sound like they end in an L when it's actually a D.

Looks like you're making good progress. The more you listen, the clearer the words will become. A little bit every day will add up to a lot before you know it.

I was on and off with French in general. I actually learned about duolingo from my classmates and instructor at a language learning center while studying French. Getting engaged was key for me. I am food-obsessed so I have immersed in all things cheese and food to get better at French. With that said, learning Danish has been awesome and fun with duolingo. Where I found the sound of spoken Danish a little funny, I now find it interesting and fun! Give it a go! Again, the recent food trends have helped me get engaged and find materials to study the language.

Thank you 21Wordup. It is a refreshing change not to have to think as hard about articles, feminine and masculine and plurals with extra e's and different extensions in every sentence you write. I enjoy the challenge but sometimes it just blows my mind. Good luck yourself.
