Specifically the ø and æ, but if any other letters are pronounced differently from their English counterparts, please let me know.

I'm loving the new course by the way! It's great so far.

Thanks so much! I wasn't even planning on learning Danish until I learned Swedish and Norwegian, but I love it so much that I think I'm going have to put those on hold.

I would like to add that the danish keyboard is not that different from the english one, it only has the danish letters and then the letters keys are all the same. I just added it and Im learning to use it.

Using the "US International" keyboard layout, you can use the following: AltGr+z = æ AltGr+l = ø AltGr+w = å

I actually use that despite Danish being my mother tongue.
