Thank you, Danish team.
In case my many problem reports failed to identify and get me booted from this website, hey >:)
Dear all concerned,
Today, 29.10.2014, I have finished the Danish tree - your Danish tree. I am writing to thank you very much for your effort. I know our one-sided correspondence of written missiles was matchless in many uncomplimentary terms, but it was sweet while it lasted. Alas, I'll miss it.
I wish you the best. Be proud of yourselves. Duolingo is revolutionary and the Danish tree reflects a considerable amount of care and hard work. I went through many language courses, Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone, to name a few, many textbooks and even more notebooks. Yours is different, better.
You, as part of Duolingo, brought the Danish part of something particularly remarkable in our particularly silly world.
I wish you all the best, Eb00kie

PS. This letter, with slight alterations, can also be found among the problem reports :)
Tillykke! Congrats! Always interested in learning what inspires people to learn a particular language. Why are you learning Danish?
I am likely going to Copenhagen for my Study Abroad next year. I know from experience that living in Denmark with English alone can get slightly frustrating :)
Me too, I am going to study in Copenhagen business school :). Therefore I am working my way through my tree now. Good luck with everything, also How is your level of Danish now? I know we don't really need to learn but I just want to be respectful and talk in their language not mine.
"Respectful" ... works, but you might consider "survival" :P Trust me, I lived a year in Denmark on English alone and while they are most of them advanced bilinguals, everything else is in only Danish: websites, signs, food (ask for flour. Please. "Blomster?"), to name a few. I also visited the capital, which I still consider one of the hardest in Europe to navigate as a tourist - with a map.
I think learning Danish before you get there is a good idea and Duolingo will get you what you need and more. Duo offered a solid base to improve on. Myself, I have a copy of "Den lille Virgil" by Ole Lund Kirkegaard, which, despite being children's lit, is hilarious. When you get yea halfway through the course, you could probably start reading some of his work. Maybe Hans Christian Andersen, too, and he wouldn't be under copyright :)
Tillykke! :D Great job! By the way, you won't get booted from this website for incorrect reports :)
Yeah, the Danish team is totally awesome! It brings a tear to mine eye thinking what a wonderful country Denmark must be. I'm in the best state in the US, but there's still an overriding sense of 'constant warring' here . . . and it's a hard way to live. . ..
Thank you, Danes, for being so kind to others.
