I am learning Dutch and Swedish and I really like both languages (Swedish a little more than Dutch) and I stumbled myself into a question:

If I'm already studying Dutch and Swedish why not try Danish?

And I did, just a couple of minutes ago. I just simply loved it! I made a decision. I'll live Swedish and Dutch aside, and see how Danish goes.

Since I'm new to Danish, I want to start leaning it differently. I never started learning a language just by talking, so I would like to try:

That's pretty awesome! Danish is one of the hardest pronunciations to perfect, so getting started speaking ASAP is ideal. Dicte is a really great crime drama in Netflix, and the Danish Guide to Grammar is online in a free PDF format. Good luck!

Thanks! Is Danish really that hard to pronounce? Even with the language learning experience I have?

I'm afraid so. My personal favorite description is "Swedish with a potato in your mouth." I find that my German and Japanese experience only makes the complicated sound system more difficult to follow (because I tend to pronounce the whole word.) But with a lil effort, you'll be fine. There are lots of pronunciation guides from Danishpod101 and plenty of miscellaneous sound bytes around the internet to check out. :D
