Kudos to the danish team

I hope this isn't considered spam but I feel like I have to congratulate the danish team. I really like how they have structured the lessons and it's pretty fast paced, as they teach some important things earlier than other courses.

Keep up the good work! :)

I agree. The sentences and constructions have been getting harder and more complicated at a rate that makes me feel like I'm progressing and keeps me interested, without being too daunting. I also find that there are more 'into Danish' questions than there are 'into German' ones in the German tree, and personally I find that those are the ones that really cement my knowledge (and catch me out if I don't really know it!) And also it's often very funny.

I as a Dane (being English and German teacher by profession) am very satisfied with the level of English we are working with - often better English than many of the major language courses . Also as Danish is taught, but not a language to be taught in, my English students can run the Danish as a reverse course for English.

My main problem is the terrible voice in the Danish course (sorry, whoever did that) - sounds kind of annoyed or bored most of the time. Even annoyed at having to speak slowly, when pressing the turtle button!

A minor detail is the lack of guttural stops in certain words where it should be present; and they chose the long "lide"-pronunciation (to like), when most Danes actually say "li'" (with the guttural stop) all the time instead and never pronounce the rest.

"At lide" also means to suffer, which will only make it wiser for foreigners to stay with "li'" as the expression for "kunne lide".

Since this information is not presently available if you could provide some more examples so we can incorporate it into our daily speech, we would be quite grateful.
