We're looking to expand the Danish Team! Apply, apply, apply!

Hey guys!

The year says 2015. Last year we were promised hover boards and self-tying shoes. None of them really happened, so instead let's get the Danish course graduated from beta. In order to make this happen we are expanding the Danish team, and we need YOU!

So anyone who's interested should send us an application at incubator.duolingo.com/apply. Be sure to select Danish for English speakers.

What we are looking for in particular:

  • Motivation! We need you to keep working even after the novelty wears off ;)
  • Time! There are a lot of sentences to correct, and a lot of forum posts to answer.

If at all possible, we need someone who can also hang around the forums and explain all the crooks and edges of the Danish language. So a deep understanding of language constructs in Danish as well as in general are valued, as well as, of course, the communication skills to explain them!

Trembling with excitement to hear from you,

Team Danish.

I'm finding it absolutely hilarious that loads of people I know don't believe I'm learning Danish from my phone! XD

Dear Duolingo,

Firstly, I'd like to thank you for the amazing work you're doing! It's extremely helpful and inspiring. Secondly, I could really use some suggestions, based on your experience :) I've been studying in Denmark for 3 years now, and Danish only for one. I am currently able to speak conversationally, ( more or less :)) ) and understand about 50% of a conversation. I guess what I am wondering is, at what level can I get only by studying with Duolingo? I am also working part-time in a store, where I speak only Danish with clients, but basically most of my day-to-day life is in English. Can I actually get to speak fluently with Duolingo, or do I need advanced classes?

Thank you in advance! Loyal user

Sounds great to me, getting real-world experience with a language like that! Now, I hope this question is not too rude: You've been living in Denmark for 3 years, working part-time in a store, and you're only able to understand 50 % of a conversation? That sounds kind of demotivating! I would have expected someone with this kind of immersion to be able to understand, I don't know, say 90 % of a conversation. Is it really that hard to understand real, spoken Danish? I don't want to insult you in any way! I'm not saying it's your fault or anything. I'm just really confused and I'd love to hear your opinion about this. Keep it up!

Haha, no problem :) Well, I've met people who've been living in Denmark for 6 years, have been to language school and still can barely understand :D It basically depends on the topic, at my part time job I can understand more than 90%, but if it's about my school program for example, or business in general, wrv.. it varies because I don't have the vocabulary :D There are actually also a bunch of accents.. people from Jutland talk very differently from the ones in Cph, and its harder to understand them. There are actually jokes made on it, that Danish people from various parts cannot understand each other :D Plus, Danish people speak English so well, all of them :)).. that you don't need to speak Danish in your everyday life.. since you'll always be more comfortable expressing yourself in English.. but well, I'm working on it ^_^

Thank you for your reply. Good luck as well! ^_^

Nós estamos olhando para expandir a equipe dinamarquesa! Aplicar, aplicar, aplicar-se! Ola pessoal!

O ano de 2015. No ano passado, diz que nos foi prometido placas pairar e sapatos de auto-subordinação. Nenhum deles realmente aconteceu, então ao invés vamos começar o curso dinamarquês graduou-beta. A fim de fazer isso acontecer estamos ampliando a equipe dinamarquesa, e nós precisamos de você!

Então, quem está interessado deverá enviar-nos um pedido em incubator.duolingo.com/apply. Certifique-se de selecionar dinamarquês para falantes de inglês.

O que nós estamos procurando, em especial:

Motivação! Precisamos de você para continuar trabalhando mesmo após a novidade desgasta fora;) Tempo! Há uma série de sentenças para corrigir, e um monte de posts no fórum para responder. Se for possível, precisamos de alguém que também pode pendurar em torno dos fóruns e explicar todos os bandidos e bordas da língua dinamarquesa. Assim, uma compreensão profunda de construções de linguagem em dinamarquês, bem como em geral são avaliados, bem como, é claro, habilidades de comunicação para explicar a eles!

Tremendo de excitação de ouvir de você,
