The Danish Course Graduates from Beta!

Hej allesammen!

I have very exciting news to share with all of you! Or it will at least be news for some of you.

Anyhow, on to the big news! We have finally graduated from beta! Okay, I say finally as it is a bad thing, but we have been working hard to stabilize the Danish course and make it the best it can be for you.

That is right, we graduated just this morning (and with flying colors too, if you ask me). The reason for the delayed post about it is because the Danish team consists of a bunch of night owls who go to bed late at night and thus were not awake at around 8 am this morning, when it occurred.

Rune and I have been very blessed to have such a good team around us, even though one member is especially annoying. Sofia already received praise when we got into beta, so now it's time for the man of the hour: Xneb (Sean). This guy has been a solid rock with an amazing work ethic every week. Xneb has been working his butt off for this course, and the entire team is very happy with his efforts. Picking up Xneb is about the best thing we have done since turning to the dark side, and this is even though he was rather reluctant at first.

So let us celebrate this day!

And a British Duo for Xneb:

British Duo

Moving forward we are not done working on the course. We are also looking to add a few people in order to provide more feedback on the Discussion boards. Our goal is that the Danish Duolingo course should be the best resource available for learning Danish!

I will take this moment to remind you of this amazing post that Rune keeps up to date: The Danish Collection (Overview of Threads). This contains a lot of information that we find useful and also some information on how you can socialize with other people who share your interest in Danish.

Må kraften være med jer!

Hyggehejsa

Team Danish Dynamite: Rune, Sofia, Sean, and Bjarke.

I will look into this, but it might take a while seeing as other courses who graduated recently do not have Immersion yet either.

Wooohoo, I'm really happy to hear about this. Soooo excited. :) This course has helped me so much. Thanks again for everything. I've been literally dying for this course to release. Have been waiting for it months. I just cannot believe it graduated from beta now! And I can tell that this is the best source to learn danish already. I didn't think I would come this far. Thanks, I do appreciate it with all my heart.

Congratulations for all your hard work. The danish course is absolutely fantastic. You made a fantastic work.

I'm sure that the work is not done yet, but it's awesome anyway. Can't wait to see what you will make to make this course even better. :-)

Personally I am eager to see the "Immersion" possibility. :-)

"You have my approval" as in "it's okay with me if you do that" would be: "Du har min tilladelse." But something like "You share my happiness" is: "Du deler min glæde!"

I'm really happy for everyone involved, and I'm glad that we could help improve the course by submitting issues for resolution. Thank you so much for your time and effort. I really appreciate being able to learn one of the languages of my ancestors.

I'd like to know if voice exercises are in the works. I've been eager to test my pronounciation! Though I doubt I'll be as good at it as Ambassador Gilford is.
