The Danish tree ending story / Den danske træ slutning historie
Her igen nogens historie om en et færdigt træ.
I started this course 2 months ago and learning Danish went very fast for me, because this language has a lot in common with English, German and Dutch. So, I have ended most of the skills very fast. The most difficult one was the present continuous. I still don't understand the logic behind this one :)
A Danish difficulty and challenge for foreign learners will remain the pronunciation of this language. My impression is that Danish don't speak out every letter of their words, something that confuses me a lot. But I guess practice will make me understand it more.
What is my plan with Danish? I will keep it for the moment at level I understand it, which means a lot for me.
What's next? I am going to improve my German, French and refresh my Italian by being more active on French course for German speakers and the Italian one for French speakers. Next to these, I must stay up to date with my Hungarian as well, so I am very eager for the Hungarian course :)
For the people who made this course: Mange tak til jeres passion, kreativitet og sans for humor (meget vigtig den sidste ;) )
kan forstå hvad du vil sige med det. Jeg lærer dansk for 2 måneder siden, også på Duolingo. Kan skrive og læse næsten alt.... men hører eller snakker er umuligt. Danskerne snakker for hurtigt for mig. Har min kæreste at snakke dansk med mig på skype... Det er meget svært for mig, men jeg prøver! :( Jeg behøver en ide hvad jeg skal gøre at lære det. :p
Du kan prøve at lytte på radio. Jeg har lyttet til DR P1 og jeg synes de taler meget tydeligt, hvis man sammenligner med annen dansk.
du kan også prøve med børnefilme (finding nemo, cars... for eksample). De snakker lidt langsomere og med enkel sætninger

And who does?
The Finns! Finnish sounds exactly like it's written :)
There are some other difficult things about their language though…
Nice, unlike some other languages, like Danish shown above, and Pinyin Chinese, with all those vowels that make sounds you don't hear, or in French, eau, eaux, or other sounds that all seem to be too many vowels for one sound. And don't get me started on English, where the ø sound is made with oul, in could, and would, and should, and other sounds. Anyways, yes, I love Finnish for sounding as written, and it is a beautiful language, if I do say.
