When do you need "at"? It seems like it doesn't always correspond to where "to" is in English.
After modal verbs (can, will etc.) the infinitive doesn't need the "at". In Danish, wanting something is sometimes expressed using the modal verb "ville" and the adverb "gerne" (unlike the English that uses "wants" or "would like" where "to" always follows)
Is 'vil gerne' something you can say in passing or is it an immediate request? As in could I casually mention to a friend that they want a house using 'vil gerne' or should I use ønsker.
I feel like 'vil gerne' is like they are talking to a realtor over the phone telling him.her their need.
