Welcome to the Danish Course!

Velkommen, vores kære elever, til beta-fasen! Welcome, our dear students, to the beta phase!

After almost three months of intense and hard work, we are now able to say that our course has reached the beta phase! We are very proud of it and can’t wait for your feedback!

We have been working so hard on this course ever since we started. Remember this year’s amazing summer? Yeah, we don’t. We sat inside working on the course all summer! But now it pays of! :D We are proud to say that we have created more than 70 skills and translated more than 16500 sentences – and if we should say it ourselves, we think they are pretty good. ;)

Nothing, of course, is flawless – but that’s why we need you guys! We gladly invite you to test our course. You should be looking forward to weird Danish dishes, zombies, ninjas, drunk cats, a scissor-stealing bear, and head-banging your desk in frustration over incomprehensible grammar. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? :D

A huge thanks to Duolingo for giving us the opportunity to make this course, to the teams who have kept us company when some of the skills were killing us, to our wonderful mentor and a huge thank you to YOU! This course would not be here without your enormous enthusiasm!

We hope you will love the course as much as we do. See you in the forums!

Danish is out!
Celebrations!!!

Now go get your late summer tans, you guys! ;)

After having done the first few lessons (I feel like a cheater, since I'm a native Norwegian speaker :-) ) I have to say that I'm impressed!

Small issue, when I level up the ribbon has the French flag. Did anybody else see this as well?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KuolleidenMaa

Speaking of Norwegian, i would love to one day see a Norwegian course. ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/finn.fr

and now there is :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zeak15

me too. i would love to learn that.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Illustris

I also noticed the french flag. :P


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Daniel_B

I noticed it, too.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bjarkehs

Yeah, we have reported this :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TobiasJacobsen

Yes I saw it as well


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DeZiple

Jeg tror Prinsgemalen er glad for det! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

Hahaha, thanks, Lavi, you're amazing! ;D<3


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/springbett

I am so happy! My life is complete…Danish and Irish…trembling with excitement! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

Amazing! My smile can fit on my face because of comments like that!! :D


[deactivated user]

    This is exciting :D Danish seems pretty tricky right now, but hopefully I can start to get the hang of it soon, it looks hella fun! Thanks Team Dutch!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    I'm sure you'll get the hang of it with time, keep practising and ask as many questions as you need! :D Good luck!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TobiasJacobsen

    Davs derude!

    Finally danish is out! That's so awesome! Huge thanks to the fantastic danish team, I'm really happy for the course so far.

    I've been following the discussions and comments everywhere about the danish course, and I've been waiting the whole summer for the course, as I am a danish native. I've not been able to work the whole summer, because I broke my leg in June in a water slide, so I've had a lot of time for Duolingo instead. Duolingo really helped me through that period! I've reached level 9 today until now, and I'm doing the final skills, so I can get my first owl. :)

    I'm at a danish "Højskole"/Bible college right now with a lot of foreigners, and I'm already encouraging them to use Duolingo to learn danish. I told my teacher about Duo today. He has has a PhD degree and he's really impressed by they way Duo makes language learning simple, like a game.

    Tusind tak!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Hej Tobias! Jeg håber dit ben er godt igen nu. ;) Jeg er glad for, at du kan bruge vores kursus og spreder budskabet! Det betyder meget for os alle, at få lov at hjælpe så mange som muligt. :) Og jeg er nødt til at give din lærer ret: Duolingo er virkelig fantastisk. Som du kan se bruger jeg det selv til en del sprog! Nå, men held og lykke med det hele! Send endelig gerne opdateringer/feedback fra digselv og dine venner på højskolen, jeg er meget nysgerrig!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TobiasJacobsen

    Hej Sofia! Det er blevet meget bedre siden da, og jeg kan næsten gå normalt igen nu. Det er godt nok dejligt, at det er ved at være overstået med krykkerne. Det er jeg glad for at høre! Det kan jeg godt forstå, det er præcis sådan jeg også har det, da jeg gerne ville fremme sproglære for alle der er omkring mig, ved at lære en masse selv og fortælle det videre. Jeg har fået flere til at bruge Duolingo allerede og er stadig igang med at "oplære" andre i det. Jeg skal sågar fortælle vores dansklærer om Duolingo meget snart, så de kan bruge i vores danskundervisning, som vi har til udlændinge på skolen. :) Ja det kan jeg se, det er fedt!! Der er så fantastisk mange gode ting ved at kunne tale og forstå flere sprog. Tak skal du have, og det vil jeg rigtigt gerne gøre! Skal jeg skrive til dig her på Duo, eller hvordan vil du gerne have updates? :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Hvor er det godt at høre, at dit ben har det bedre. :) Jeg er helt enig, sprog er fantastisk og forbinder folk på tværs af kloden - det er nøgler til så mange forskellige mennesker og kulturer! Jeg prøver også at få folk omkring mig til at bruge Duolingo, haha. Jeg håber din dansklærer vil tage det i brug, jeg tror mange af eleverne vil have glæde af det (eller også vil de bare hade det, men oh well xD). Du kan bare skrive på min stream, så vil jeg læse det! Jeg kan ikke garantere, at jeg altid har tid til at svare, men jeg vil med glæde læse om dine fremskridt! :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TobiasJacobsen

    Fedt nok, ja man må jo starte med ens omgangskreds. :) Jeg har snakket med min dansklærer om det nu, og hun er vildt positiv! Hun vil i hvert fald opfordre eleverne til at bruge duo i fritiden, jeg ved ikke om vil integrere det i undervisningen. Ja haha, de vil både glæde og hade det, helt sikkert! Det vil jeg gøre så fremover. Det er bare i orden, det kræver også meget tid at svare på utallige indlæg hele tiden, kender det alt for godt!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/km1

    Jeg håber ikke at det er for sent at sige "god bedring!". Har lige læst dit indlæg. I hvor langt tid skulle du gå med krykker? Du er sagtens blevet stærk i armene :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TobiasJacobsen

    Nej det er det overhovedet ikke, og tak for opmuntringen :) ! Jeg har stadig ondt i foden, men begynder at gå mere og mere. Jeg har gået på krykker siden juni, så det er snart 3 måneder! Jeg har vist vendt mig til dem nu (haha). Jeg er blevet en del stærkere i armene ja!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Charlotteis

    "zoombies" - Oh god, we have fast zombies now?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    We have brain-eating, grave-rising zoombies! >:D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alexinIreland

    Yay! Congratulations Team Danish! You guys are awesome! After all your hard work, I hope you guys enjoy the beta phase and get out what you put into this course! I can't wait to give the course a go. WOOOO!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Thanks, Alex! :D Lingot to you!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/leakielsholm

    Hurraaaa! Nu venter jeg bare på, at der kommer engelskkursus for danskere, haha! Nej nu skal I have lov at nyde denne sejr, før I går videre ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Mange tak! :D Det kan da godt være, vi gør det på et tidspunkt - puha, det har jeg slet ikke tænkt over endnu. xD Det kunne da være sjovt, hvis der var sådan et kursus - ville gerne selv have haft et, da jeg var yngre og lærte engelsk på den gammeldags, kedelige måde i skolen!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aL5X

    de fleste danskere har ikke særlig meget brug for engelskkursus.. de er gode nok til det og kan godt lide at vise at de kan


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/leakielsholm

    Sjovt, at du kommer med sådan en generaliserende udtalelse - for jeg er faktisk dansker ;) Og jeg vil altså gerne have det kursus!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/km1

    Der er faktisk mange som vil gerne har engelskkursus for danskere. Engelsk er min modersmål. Den nuværende danskkursus for engelsktalere er lidt for nemt fordi man skal mest oversætte fra dansk til engelsk. Jeg vil helst oversætte fra engelsk til dansk og glæder mig til den omvendte kursus eventuelt udkommer!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TokeBundga

    Men børn kan til gengæld have rigtig meget glæde af det. Er stor fan af hvordan DuoLingo generelt bygger deres sprogkurser op. ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CarlLockey

    Quality, been logging on for the last two weeks for this. Thank you guys for the course :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    You're welcome! ;) Good luck with it!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NohTaebin

    Amazing. Thank you for all your hard work Team Danish! We look forward to helping get it through Beta! :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Thank you so much. :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Equillibrium

    Danish! One of my favorite languages :) Thanks a lot for the course!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    You're very welcome. :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tbarasmussen

    Thank you. Finally my Norwegian friend who just moved to Denmark can learn some Danish!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Vi er glade for at kunne hjælpe. ;) Hils ham mange gange!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tbarasmussen

    Tak, tak. Han har prøvet det, men han slap med "you had a typo" alt for mange gange...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bjarkehs

    Præcis... Det skal vi have gjort noget ved. Dansk virker lidt for tilgivende pt.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marinia

    Thanks for putting this to life - bjarke, runem, sofia. I'm sure a whole lot of people here on duolingo are very grateful for the huge dedication and love you three have put into creating this course. I tried to find good ways to learn danish for a while now and I failed. I've been waiting for the release of this course ever since I heard of it a couple of months ago. I'm really impressed how sophisticated the course is, even though it's early beta stage. You really have done a great job and you deserve a honest thanks from the duolingo community who now finally is able to study some danish.

    I've been living here in Copenhagen with my boyfriend for like 1 month now, though without school or nothing I felt it's hard to learn anything. I feel dreadful when people outside talk to me and all I can say is "I can't speak danish". Therefore I'm deeply grateful for this opportunity to learn some danish through your course.

    Thanks :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Hej Marina! I hold this message very dear. Thank you so much for sharing your gratitude and your story. I know I say this a lot, but I'm so glad that we're able to help you out. Congratulation on being at level 10 already! Godt gået! I hope you'll enjoy Copenhagen more now - how are you doing?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marinia

    Hello Sofia, thank you for your kind words :) I'm on the highway with my bf right now. We visited his parents in southern Denmark. We are going back to Copenhagen now. I really improved big time in danish ever since I started learning 3 weeks ago. I'm able to read subtitles on tv with almost no problems. I can read well, though understanding spoken danish and speaking is still very hard for me. I will try my best to improve. Thank you once again. :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Wow, that's amazing!! You go, girl! ;D You'll learn the spoken language soon, I'm sure of it. ;) Keep going! And if you need any help feel free to ask! We'll do our best to help you out. :) Please keep me updated on your progress, if you want too. Held og lykke! :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marinia

    I definitely will :) just need more time since I've been learning for 3 weeks only. My plans are to finish the danish tree and then try learning to speak and probably move to Denmark next year. Thanks for the offer, I appreciate it. You're a really nice person :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marinia

    There is no reply below button unfortunately, weird! I will let you know of course! However I might need some more weeks to finish it. But one thing is sure. I will get there :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Rome was not built in one day. ;) Let me know when we shall celebrate that you've finished your tree! ;D Thank you very much. :3 And you too!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RUDI512

    Yes. Finally. Great job guys


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anna._

    I just came back from London and return to this!! I'm so happy yay! haha


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    I hope you enjoyed your trip. :D Glad you like the course. ^^ How is it going with it?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anna._

    I love how Danish sounds! Two days ago I got to meet a bunch of Danish students, I learned a lot about Danish from them so after that I'm hoping to really boost my levels on the course now. tusind tak!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    What an amazing experience! I'm so glad on your behalf. :) Selv tak. ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pcava

    Thank you very much! I've been following your progress throughout the year because I'm planning to make an academic exchange at Aarhus in January! I'm so excited to start learning Danish :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Wow, that's amazing! I hope you'll get here - good luck with it! If you want, please keep us updated! :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wizek

    I feel so joyous the course is out! :D I want to give you a big hug to show my appreciation! :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/quirkyowl

    YIPPEEE! Thank you so much guys! I've been waiting for this with great excitement, and it doesn't disappoint! I've just finished the first two basics skills, and the grammar notes are fantastic! Thank you! (I don't know how to say 'thank you' yet in Danish so you'll have to make do with 'Jeg er en kvinde og jeg spiser et aeble') :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Haha, that's a beautifully correct sentence (this is not, lol xD). Thank you = Tak. Thanks a lot = Mange tak. Tadah! :D Congratulations on being a level 8 already, wuhu! :D I'm glad you like the course and the grammar notes. Thank you for your feedback and good luck! :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/quirkyowl

    Mange tak! Jeg elsker Dansk! :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Jeg elsker sprog! :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aL5X

    Goddag! Jeg har allerede lært dansk i 3-4 år og jeg snakker dansk til dagligt, fordi jeg arbejder med danskere. Men jeg havde alligevel nogle fejl på placeringstesten. Jeg prøvede at teste flere kompetencer og nogle opgaver, men jeg fik fejl i nogle sætninger, som man kan sige på flere måder.. Ellers tillyke, det er godt arbejde =)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Hejsa! Mange tak! :D Hvor er du god til dansk, jeg ville tro du var native! Vi arbejder på at få oversat sætningerne på så mange måder som muligt, så I slipper for at få fejl. ;-) Held og lykke med det!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ChrSvensson

    Excellent work guys! As a native Dane I was disappointed when I wasn't able to ace the placement test. But I see I'm not the only one, so... Though it's flawed, the course is still in beta, but already quite amazing. Kudos to the three of you, you did great! :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Mange tak, du, hvor er det godt at høre, at du kan lide kurset! Der er en del fejl, men vi arbejder på at få dem fikset. Nu har vi fået en til med på holdet, som kan hjælpe os (sig hej til Xneb! :D). Jeg er sikker på, at det bliver rigtig godt, når vi engang er "færdige" - selvom vi nok aldrig bliver helt færdige. ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CypressL

    Tusind tak! Jeg bor i København og jeg gik til dansk, men nu er kursuset slut. Jeg vil gerne fortsætter, så jeg er meget glad for dette kursus! I er den bedste!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Hvor er det flot skrevet! Tillykke med at være god til dansk! :D Og hey, stort tillykke med level 7! Jeg er glad for at vi kan hjælpe. :) Hvor kommer du fra?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CypressL

    Jeg er så sent!! Undskyld!! Tak! Jeg kommer fra USA og jeg studerer i København. Jeg må desværre flytte tilbage til USA i december. Men jeg ville ønske, at jeg kan fortsætte med Duolingo. Jeg vil perfect (jeg ved ikke dansk ordet) min udtale her, og jeg vil bruge Duolingo derhjemme.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Du skal ikke undskylde, det er helt okay - jeg var vist også lidt sent på den. ;) Det lyder spændende! Hvordan kan det være, du valgte at studere i Danmark? To perfect something = at perfektionere noget. :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CypressL

    Tak for nyt ord :)!

    Well, jeg set Jagten et par år siden, og jeg kunne godt lidt det. Jeg vidste ikke, at Danmark gjorde så store film! Jeg begyndte at se flere danske film. Da jeg skulle vælge et land at studere i (jeg har ønsket at studere i udlandet, siden jeg var barn), var Danmark det oplagte valg.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Wow, hvor er du bare sej til dansk! Highfive! ;D Jeg håber du nyder dit ophold her! Hvordan har det været indtil videre?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Daniel_B

    Thank you so much! I am already at level 2! Something I noticed, though, that could be fixed is that when I go into my profile, the Danish flag looks like a French flag.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Thank YOU! :D And congratulations with reaching level six already!! :D The flag has been fixed, btw. ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/putinpresident

    Test to see my flags ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/quirkyowl

    That is an impressive number of flags you have there! :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Katrina.-

    Awesome! Thanks so much! (By the way, how did you customize your Duo?) :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    No problem. ;) We had an awesome friend make them for us. ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yeahbuddy34

    Jeg prøvede i lang tid, men jeg kunne virkelig ikke naile placement testen uden nogle fejl :P


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/runem

    Jeg ramte en del sætninger der ikke var accepterede, og endte med at mangle ca 20 skills XD


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Hvis det kan trøste dig har jeg lavet den samme skill om over 10 gange, fordi jeg blev ved med at få fejl. xD Det bliver forhåbentlig nemmere efterhånden som vi rettere flere og flere rapporter. :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bjarkehs

    Det er okay, der er en del fejl. Selv ikke jeg kunne komme igennem uden fejl, dog crashede den første gang da jeg var 80% igennem uden fejl :(


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marinia

    yay, I'm soooo exicted :))


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanXander

    I am so excited for this course (as evidenced by the fact I'm on level 3 already). Tak for all the hard work; y'all have done an amazing job! This is pretty much how I felt when I saw that the Danish course was open (hope this works; EDIT...oops, don't know how to embed gifs, sorry):

    Haha, I'm so happy that we can help you with our course! :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Prado39

    Thank you very much! It is awesome.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Glad you like it! :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mirifis

    Thank you thank you thank you ! I was soooo waiting for eat, checking the progress every day... I am on it right now !


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Haha, please, do not forget to eat! We do not want to be responsible for people dying of excitement, haha. xD


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mirifis

    Ahah, I really don't know how I ended up writing "eat" instead of "it" ^^ A big hunger maybe :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Hahaha best typo ever. xD I really thought you didn't eat, now I'm disappointed. xD


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bwana-b

    Awesome! Finally it is out! And I´m level 6 already (Ok I´m swedish so I know that's almost like cheating...;))! Thank you for all your efforts!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Thank you very much. Great job! :D Congratulations on reaching level 8!! I personally look forward to the Swedish course - always been curious about our "neighbor-language". ;D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeniusJack

    I am ready to learn Danish! Bring it on!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Haha, that's such a Danish picture. xD


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Daugaardjakob

    but where are the girls, and the liqour?? haha and "æbleskiver"?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andre_B_C

    Hi, I know no one has posted here in like 4 years but I would like to know if you guys are still improving and changing stuff in the course or if you are taking a break. Mange tak


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KurtThornb

    You aren't alone. I have been doing this for 767 days straight. I worked my way through the Swedish tree. I started doing Esperanto, Latin, Navaho, and Danish all at the same time. it took me 350 days to finish Swedish, which I am keeping up by watching every Swedish movie I can. I am about half way through Spanish now. My grandfather spoke Swedish and taught me some. Toward the end of the Swedish course i discovered he spoke a dialect which is intermediate between Swedish and Danish called Scane with a little circle over the "a". I'm not an admin. I did Spanish second because I found out I picked it up during my lifetime but I didn't have a big vocabulary and didn't know how verbs form when you get beyond the present tenses. I am hoping to be fluent in four languages (including my maternal language) by January 2021. Ses snart means the same thing in Swedish and in Danish. Incidentally to me French is to Spanish as Danish is to Swedish. The French and the Danes are always looking for ways to shorten words, while the Spanish and the Swedes enunciate every syllable. Ses snart!

    Hahaha, that's a funny gif! xD

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gothdiva1

    When will the app be updated to show Danish? I see it online, but not on mobile.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Charlotteis

    The Dutch course has been out for a month and is not yet on the app. Unfortunately it might be a little while until Danish is there.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gothdiva1

    Boo. I use the app almost exclusively. :l


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/quirkyowl

    I use a combination of the app and the website, but with the app you'll miss out on the amazing grammar notes, so it might be an idea to start off a bit on the site if you can, until you get the hang of the basics.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gothdiva1

    I get lots of notes on the app. They've been very helpful with my german course. But I'm going to give the site a try. I just hate typing on my laptop.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanXander

    Hej! This is MrsSiebert13 on Twitter aka Squiggles on FB. Glad to see another fannibal here. :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Knoxienne

    Thank you so much, friends! I am enjoying Danish so much. The sounds are elusive, but so beautiful!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    I'm glad you like it, ihhh, I'm so glad and excited, haha! XD All this positive response is making me smile "from ear to ear" as we say in Danish (and English? I really don't know). xD


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Knoxienne

    Yes, we say that in English also! :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    My brain just grew a little there. ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kimjohnbill

    thank you so much for your hard working : )


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    No problem - it pays of now. ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aufarizal

    wow... congratulations guys, your works are splendid, I've waited for this course :D btw why does the emblem for Danish course look like the emblem for French course? tak :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    I'm so glad you like it! :D That's just a mistake - it's fixed now. ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Reisam

    Thank you very much for all the hard work! Ever since I watched the popular Danish tv shows I've been wanting to learn to speak Danish. ;-)

    I downloaded an app on my iPhone, but it is nothing like DuoLingo. I also downloaded a text book + audio files for self teaching, but I had to force myself to study. Now that the DuoLingo course is out, I don't have to force myself, because learning on DuoLingo is so much fun!

    Tusind tak!

    P.S. the 'tips & notes' are exstensive and very helpful!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Hej Reisam! I agree - Duolingo makes language learning fun! :D I'm glad you feel likewise about the Danish course. I can see you're doing well already! Level 9, huh? Awesome job! :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/martymcfries

    i am so excited for danish!! thank you so much for your hard work, i look forward to studying this!

    Bravo!!! I've waited for months for this. I am trying to get a scholarship in Denmark, and hopefully the course will help me make that easier. Thanks a lot, all the contributors, for all of your efforts! You guys are doing a great job! By the way, I love your avatar pictures. They look pretty cool!

    Thank everyone for your hard work on this!! I am an American that works for a Danish-owned company and speak to Danes on a daily basis. I am so excited to learn and I can't wait to surprise them!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Haha, I'm so happy for you! Good luck with it! ;D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Krore

    Thank you guys so much for your work! I was not planning at all to do the Danish course, but I thought I would check out the first lesson. I was surprised at how much I like the language, though, and the notes were great--enough to make the grammar make sense but not so much as to be overwhelming.

    I'm obviously extremely early in the course, but I think I'm actually going to continue with it as my "fun" language. I am very impressed with the course thus far!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    I'm so glad to hear so. :D I'm especially glad to hear that our grammar notes are appreciated - they weren't that fun to make to be honest, haha. But it all pays of now! Congratulations on reaching level 6 - keep going and feel free to ask as many questions as possible! :D Good luck with everything!

    Yayyyy! I can't believe it came out 2 days ago and I'm only just finding out because I've been so busy at work!!! Hopefully I'll find the time to study hard on this course, I've been so looking forward to it!! Thank you so much Danish team. You're the best!!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

    Haha, you poor thing! I hope you don't feel too bad at missing the launch. ;) I'm glad you're excited for the course! I'm just so excited about all of our excited users, haha. xD You're awesome! :D

    Hej danske Duolingo-gruppe

    Stærkt arbejde med kurset! Det ser godt ud :-)

    One thing I stumbled upon: In the "tips and notes" section of the number skill the word "snes" is introduced. I find that to be a bit misleading, since the word "snes" has nothing to do with the names of the numbers! For instance, "halvtreds" aka "halvtredsindstyve" cannot be explained as "halv" + "tre" + "snes", but is instead: "halvtredje" + "sinde" + "tyve", which are old Danish words meaning 2½ times twenty. (This also explains why there is a 'd' in halvtreds, but not in tres). Read more about it here: http://sproget.dk/raad-og-regler/artikler-mv/svarbase/SV00000047

    I feel like I should have looked this up before I wrote it. I am very sorry that I wrote something that was not true, but I had heard it somewhere and found it to be a probable reason. I have now corrected the notes and it should be possible to see at some point later tonight/tomorrow.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/runem

    I can't believe I missed a chance to correct Bjarke! Fandens også.

    I feel likewise, bro. I feel your pain. pats back


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/km1

    I could never remember the Danish numbers until I learned what they meant. I'm glad you can include this explanation for other learners :)

    Thank you Danish Team for all of your hard work! I want to learn Danish to be able to study my husband's family history and culture (his grandfather came from Denmark), and hopefully visit the family homestead someday. So far I love the course!

    I didn't know Duolingo existed until three days ago but apparently I'm already addicted to learning Danish. Absolutely loving it! Thank you so much! (If there are any recommended basic 'reading in Danish' places on here or to buy good Danish/English dictionary recs, I'd love to know where to find them please.)

    Brilliant work!

      Thank you for the course it's wonderful! I just came across with a possible mistake with one task it was with possessive pronouns and in lesson 2 there was multi choice task with a sentence "you drink its water" and the correct answer was "du drikker dens vand" but shouldn't it be "du drikker dets vand" as the vand is et word? There wasn't even the option with dets so is it just a spelling mistake or is there an exception with rules that when the word is et it's mit, dit, dets and so on?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sofiadcs

      Hello! :) Glad you like the course and asks questions when in doubt - just remember to post questions in the discussion forum. I'll make an exception this time and answer your question here, but normally we don't. ;) It is correct that dets should be accepted, but it isn't because water is an et-word (though it is true, that water is an et-word ;)). It is because its is a pronoun. And a pronoun is a word, that replaces another word and change according to the word, they're replacing. For intance: I drink the girl's water -> I drink her water. Here "her" replaces "the girl". In this sentence You drink its water "its" replaces some unknown thing or animal. And since unknown things and animals can both be et- and en-words in Danish both dens and dets should be accepted. So as you see the pronouns change according to what they're replacing. I hope that made sense to you. :)

      Thank you so much for the hard work. The course looks very impressive - I'm Danish so I hope to give a bunch of beta-feedback and then get my American wife to work ;-). Great work!

      Hahaha, we'll look forward to the feedback - bring it on! ;D Mange tak og held og lykke! I hope your wife likes the course too. ;)

      Hej Danish Team. Jeg underviser i dansk på et sprogcenter i København, og har opfordret mine kursister til at taste jeres Duolingo Dansk. Jeg har dog selv et par bemærkninger. Den danske udtale som man høre undervejs i 'the lessons' er meget unaturlig og 'computer-syntetisk'. Hvis folk der lærer sproget skal kunne afkode (forstå) dansk i 'den virkelige verden', er det vigtigt de lærer at afkode sproget som det tales. Jeg ved det sikkert er en udfordring, men tag et kig på denne hjemmeside, hvor 'native speakers' udtaler ord (her på dansk. Bare en ide. http://da.forvo.com/languages/da/ Men fedt I er i gang :-)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanXander

      That site has been linked in the discussions elsewhere already by the amazing Danish Team. :) Unfortunately, the tts (audio) software that they use on Duolingo for the Danish course, I believe, is the best they have been able to find. We do have a Skype call every Saturday so we can practice our pronunciation and listening. We usually have at least one native Dane to help us...you are welcome to join us. :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/drcjones

      Skype call, great idea! How do I join this call?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanXander

      Just add danish.duolingo on to your contact list on Skype; once you do that, I will accept the contact request and add you to the group. :)

      Hejsa! Jeg kan ikke beskrive hvor glad jeg er for at høre, at vores kursus kan hjælpe dine elever. Det var mit håb, at vi kunne bidrage til dansklæring ikke kun i udlandet, men i Danmark selv. Må jeg spørge, hvorfra du har hørt om Duolingo? Hvad synes eleverne om det? Hvilket sprogcenter er det? (hehe, mange spørgsmål, beklager) Mht. til vores tts (text to speach) program, så er vi godt klar over, at vores søde oplæser lyder lidt robot-agtig, men det er det bedste tts-program på markedet lige pt. :P Jeg kender godt forvo.com og bruger den selv - fantastisk hjemmeside! Jeg regner med at komme til at henvise vores brugere til den mere i fremtiden. :) Tak for feedbacken og held og lykke med det hele! :D


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/thassager

      Hej med jer, Ja, jeg ved at tts for dansk' vedkommende stadig har lidt vej endnu før det kører. Dr.dk/ligetil (lette nyheder på dansk) har samme 'problem' med deres oplæsningsrobot. Men det kommer forhåbentlig. Men egentlig er jeg også bare glad, for jeg synes det er rigtig godt at så meget er undervejs. Duolingo har jeg hørt om via et feed fra The Guardian tech og efterfølgende fra en amerikansk spil-designer. Hun fortalte at 'dansk' var blevet lanceret på Duolingo. Det sprogcenter jeg arbejder på hedder Studieskolen (jf et af dine spørgsmål ;)). Desværre har jeg ikke hørt så meget feedback fra mine kursister endnu, men jeg følger løbende op. Hvis jeg får noget interessant feedback fra dem, skriver jeg det gerne til jer, hvis det kunne være noget I har brug for. Jeg har selv udviklet et e-læringssite og er i gang med et nyt, så jeg 'snuser' meget rundt for at se, hvad der er af sjove, gode og inspirerende sitets til sproglæring :) Og tak for svaret fra jer og held og lykke videre! :D

      I like Duolingo ...but it is infuriating. I have completed 'Basics 1' , 'Basics 2' and 'Phrases'. I can complete the practice tests without errors, but I a am still unable to figure out how to move onto the next level, namely 'Food'

      Hvad der er tale om?


      [deactivated user]

        Jeg prøvede at tage den sidste dansk test der var, og jeg ved ikke om jeg er dum eller hvad jeg er (der er en seriøs mulighed) , men jeg kan virkelig ikke gennemføre kurset?! (prøvet 10 plus gange)

        • Som dansker?! -

        Prøv at tænk hvad de andre har af besværligheder om vores sprog!?.. Pia K ville have smidt mig ud af landet for længe siden, havde jeg taget testen før.. Testen er fuld af at der kun er en måde at sige tingene på, og hvis man vil lave en anden fortolkning med samme betydning, så bliver man busted.. Og er betydningen af et sprog ikke vigtigere end at Picture bliver oversat som billed i et spørgsmål, men er fejl og skal være foto i en andet? Jeg har ikke hørt om billed når det er af ens far/foto når den bliver opbevaret i pung?

        Jeg har rapporteret hvad jeg har fundet indtil nu, men jeg må da tage det 12 tal fra gym og seriøst overveje om sensor var for sød den dag... hehe Jeg skal jo til og pakke mine ting... Pia K står allerede i døren...
