Can anyone recommend any Danish youtubers or youtube channels that are entertaining and fun to watch ^-^? And maybe with subtitles :D in Danish
- Kamelåså - okay this is actually Norwegian, but it's a fun video to watch over and over again.
- This American guy somehow managed to get his Danish on a really good level, he also explains how he did that. Highly recommended.
- This Danish guy explains the Danish pronunciation in a very detailed way. Listen to this when you get on more advanced level.
I think Danish is quite hard to understand but easy to read. Watching some good TV shows (they have plenty of those!) helped me with my listening skills. I watched Borgen, Broen (Bron in Swedish), Forbrydelsen with English and/or Danish/Norwegian subtitles (used this site to merge two subtitle files into one).
I know I didn't answer your question but hope this helps a bit!
could you help me with where you found broen/borgen/forbrydelsen online or as a download? I have searched for all three of these shows but didn't really know where to find them. And buying them in real life is a bit hard for me since no place sells them, so I prefer finding something online :)
That makes me laugh to read that Matador "is in an older Danish (1970s and 1980s Danish)". I was living in Denmark back then when Matador began, and I saw the first episodes when they were first broadcast. I am very curious how the language has changed since then -- and also curious why Matador didn't use the even older kind of Danish spoken during the time it was set, 50 years earlier. One thing I have noticed in recent Danish movies is that people use a lot of English swearwords when speaking Danish. Forty years ago, I heard Danes use a lot of Danish swearwords when speaking Danish (and "sgu" was so common that I didn't even know it was a swearword), and I heard Danes use a lot of English swearwords when speaking English (OK these were teenagers), but I never under any circumstances heard Danes use any English swearwords when speaking Danish.
Although I'm not a huge fan of the genre, vloggers seem pretty popular in Denmark too.

I found two children's films from the 1980s very entertaining: Krummernes Jul, best watched during Advent in the lead up to Christmas, and Buskers Verden, though the latter I watched complete a little while ago but the complete film seems to have vanished, but there are various chunks of it available.
