Danish Assignments (overview and QA)


There will probably not be any more assignments anytime soon ): Sorry!

Check out my videos on YouTube for listening exercises, grammar explanations and pronunciation help :)

The channel is called "Sofiadcs" :)

Danish Language Assignments

Is Duolingo getting a little too repetitive for you? Do you crave writing in Danish, but don't know what to write about? Do you want to become better at understanding spoken Danish? Then stay put!

Your eyes are not lying to you, we are attempting an experiment and we will be perfecting this along the way. We are going to start posting a new Danish assignment as often as possible. The assignments will mostly be writing and occasionally with some reading or listening included.

Q: So what is this?

A: This is an opportunity for you to practice your Danish and have somebody correct your work

Q: Who's doing the correcting?

A: Anybody can help correcting. Think a bit like the Immersion, where people will "vote" for the best correction

Q: So how will this work?

A: Every assignment will have its own thread here on Duolingo. To submit your assignment simply make a comment in the related assignment thread (a list over all assignments can be found below). If you feel authorised to correct an assignment do so by answering the comment containing the assignment you want to correct or praise. #*Keep a decent tone. We are all here to learn, learning is difficult and mistakes are inevitable :)

Q: How difficult will the assignments be?

A: We are going to create 3 different levels which the assigments will be in: Beginner (I), Intermediate (II), and Advanced (III). Assignments will be assigned recommended levels, e.g. some assignments will be recommended for only Advanced, some will be recommended for Beginner and Intermediate, but nobody says you can't do the assignment no matter your level. We will also have assignments that are recommended for all levels.

Q: Where will I find the assignments?

A: You will find a link to all the given assignments right here!

Q: Great, when do we start?

A: Right now! Your first assignments are already down below! Please do not submit your assignments in this comment section, but use the links below to get to the correct thread. :)

All assignments:

Held og lykke! Vi glæder os til at høre fra jer - Team Danish Dynamite

March 8, 2018

awesome to learn

April 23, 2016

I've started to learn Norwegian first, you know that Norwegian and Danish are almost the same languages, at least as grammar. Yet i can't understand Danish although i'm pretty good at understanding Norwegian. So, how may i resolve this problem? Thank you all already

April 20, 2016

Okay, im danish i have lived here all my life (sorry if you cant understand my english), but i understand you, i can understand a Norweagian, but dont think you are bad beacause you cant understand danish, danish is hard too learn, but i dont know how much you have seen danish or norwegian television, but if you see danish youtuber or norwegian you can learn a lot from that. Just say if you want help with your danish @Blurhead.

September 16, 2016

sweet. i finally digitally know a real danish person.

October 26, 2017

Danish is a beautiful course

July 31, 2017

totes. i think it qualifies as a romance language in my book

October 26, 2017

it is in fact a north germanic language. It is one of my native languages too.

October 30, 2017

Thank you :-)

Sounds like great practice. I've just started the Beginner Danish lessons, and will try the Beginner assignments as soon as I have some experience.

March 16, 2016

Are these still live to use and be assesed, as i think this is an excellent idea and a bit dissapointted that the Danish curse does not have a n Immersion feature like other courses?

April 8, 2016

jeg elsker dansk

May 1, 2016

does that mean 'i speak danish?'

October 26, 2017


November 23, 2017

no, it means "I love Danish". You are lvl 4, you should know that by now.

October 30, 2017

Sofia, your Yourtube channel is gone! ):

September 19, 2017

The most difficult is to find natives to practice.

June 29, 2015

Have you checked this out?

June 29, 2015

June 29, 2015

Just a question; how would you say I like ....

And would I like... apply to anything about you?


November 11, 2015

"I like" would be "Jeg kan godt lide". I don't understand the second part of your question, though...

November 25, 2015

"I would like.." is "Jeg kunne godt tænke mig..."

December 7, 2015

You're right about this, but look closer, Appelsinen does not seem to be asking for "I would like", but for something concerning the usage of "I like". I just don't get, what that is :)

December 7, 2015

Me neither, i just though he wrote something wrong xD

December 8, 2015

jeg kan godt lide

I have a friend who speaks fluent Danish but wanted to use Duolingo to improve her English. No such course exists! Why is this?

March 25, 2016

Would your friend be interested in a language exchange of sorts via Skype? I could help her with English and she could help me with Danish :) (I'm Irish by the way!)

July 5, 2016

Hello! Because one thing is that there's not a great demand for it, most Danes speak decent English - but we actually wanted to create such a course, and I can't remember Duolingo's exact answer, but they would have to create a whole new Danish interface to make an English course for Danes, and then they would have to do it for the Swedes and Norwegians too. We suggested a joined interface for three nordic language (just like on shampoo bottles in the north), and I think they said they would think about it - but that's a long time ago now so maybe she should try memrise? She could learn some vocabulary there :) Also just reading English books or hearing English audio books helps a lot :P

October 10, 2016

i don't know. i was wondering why there is only a spanish to catalan course and no english to catalan course. i want to go to andorra if u were wondering why

October 26, 2017

It is unfortunate that most of the Danes speak Englesk even though I will be nice and let them learn it.

April 1, 2016

May 9, 2016

September 10, 2016

September 2, 2017

Yes, Danish, Norwegian and Swedish people will understand each other with a little effort.

September 2, 2017


September 3, 2017

yeah it is. i took a little bit of norweigan (didnt like it) and it is a more rough translation of danish, i think

October 26, 2017

I don't know what you mean by that, but Norwegians won't be happy.

October 26, 2017

i am a american and i come to say goddag
