where did "want to" go?


In Danish you can say both 'vil' and 'vil gerne' to say 'want to' or 'would like to'. The only difference is that 'vil' can also mean 'will', but that is most often used only when you are referring to a specific time in the future in the same sentence :)


"I will not die, I will live!" is not the same thing as "I do not want to die, I want to live".
