Lesson Transcript

Welcome to DanishClass101.com’s “Dansk på tre minutter”. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Danish.
Hej, jeg hedder Louise. Hyggeligt at møde dig. “Hi, I'm Louise. Nice to meet you.”
In this series, you’re going to learn basic Danish expressions. It’s super easy and it only takes 3 minutes!
In this lesson, you’ll learn how to introduce yourself in Danish. There are only two sentences you need to do it.
Let’s see how Danish people introduce themselves.
Hej, jeg hedder Louise. Hyggeligt at møde dig. “Hi, I’m Louise. Nice to meet you.”
[slowly] Hej, jeg hedder Louise. Hyggeligt at møde dig.
Start by saying Hej, jeg hedder... then, say your name. Hej, jeg hedder Louise. Finally, say Hyggeligt at møde dig.
Hej, jeg hedder Louise. Hyggeligt at møde dig.
And now let’s see the same sentence in a different format.
Goddag, jeg hedder Louise. Rart at møde dig. “Hello, my name is Louise. Nice to meet you.”
[slowly] Goddag, jeg hedder Louise. Rart at møde dig.
So, what has changed from the previous introduction?
Let’s take a closer look at these together.
Hej has been substituted with an alternative greeting Goddag, Danish for "Hello" or “Good day.”
In a formal setting you would say your full name, but it is better to just use your first name when you’re being introduced to new friends.
The Hyggeligt in Hyggeligt at møde dig has been changed to Rart. When you meet someone in a formal context, for instance in a job context, “rart at møde dig” would be the most appropriate greeting, while hyggeligt at møde dig is for when you’re introduced to new friends.
One more time- One way to introduce yourself in Danish is Hej, jeg hedder Louise. Hyggeligt at møde dig.
An alternative way to introduce yourself is
Goddag, jeg hedder Louise. Rart at møde dig.
Now it’s time for Louise’s Insights.
When you introduce yourself, it's a good habit to shake hands in Denmark. While rart at møde dig is slightly more formal than hyggeligt at møde dig, you don’t need to worry too much about which one you use.
If you use one of these sentences with Danish people, they’re definitely going to be impressed!
Do you know how we say “thank you” in Danish? You’ll learn how to say this and many other words in the next lesson. Tak, og vi ses næste gang. See you then!
