Velkommen! :) The Danish can be tricky but so much fun. Hope you enjoy it here. :)

Welcome to Duolingo! What language are you thinking of focusing on?


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

Thanks! I originally started on Dutch, but I didn't like it so I've switched to Danish. What about you?


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

You can see the array of languages I'm studying next to my name :)

Although I've mostly focused on German here, I'm doing quite a lot.

Wow! Doesn't it get confusing sometimes?


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

As long as you have a strong grasp on one language before you move on to another, it's not that confusing. With similar languages, confusion is more common. With totally different languages, like Mandarin and German, I hardly ever mix them up.

Whenever I try to learn more than one language, my brain goes zonk. I'm learning Latin as a second language and I've tried to learn Swedish, but I just got everything mixed up. I just can't do it. I find Danish is pretty similar to Swedish though.

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

Yay! I like being friends with someone. Well, I'm currently learning Danish, but I started on Dutch - I got bored of it.


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

yea. but ducth is one of similar to english. but many of them youll not understand. Try Spanish, or german. German has similar to english


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

I find Dutch is very different. The closest word I know to English is sandwich.


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

yeah. goodluck in ur duolingo.

Dutch might be a difficult language to learn. At least it is our reputation. ;-) I do think that there are many similarities between the German and the Dutch language. Yet I've been told that it is harder for a German to learn Dutch than for a Dutchman to learn German. I am not so sure about that though. There are some similarities to English and French too. I think the major difficulties when learning Dutch are word order and pronunciation (especially the hard 'g' and combinations like 'sch..' 'spr..' and 'ui'). Overall, I think learning Dutch is not more difficult than learning French or German.

Hello Sandie!!!Welcome on duolingo!!!Do you like the website?


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

Thanks! I love it! All the other websites I've tried to learn other languages on are extremely complicated. Mom just randomly found this website and showed it to me and now I think my life is changed. (P.S. my name isn't Sandie, It's actually Sadie :) )
