1. A Brief History of Counting and Number Systems

Abacus

1. The Ishango Bone

The origin of counting, and with it numbers, is not clear to historians. While their art showed that prehistoric man had a concept of numbers, the first indication of a formal system was found to be only between 20,000 and 35,000 thousand years old. This discovery came around 1960 in the form of the so-called Ishango Bone found in the Congo, Central Africa.

The 10cm/4 inch piece of bone was a fibula from a baboon. It showed markings with a neat, unified pattern of small lines - far too organized and sophisticated to have formed spontaneously. Archeologists believe that those thin markings were carved to keep score of, or count, something. The lines seemed to represent a sequence of prime numbers and a series of duplications. Some even called it the first-ever pocket calculator!

2. Mesopotamia and Greece

Yet, evidence suggests that it wasn’t until about 4,000 years ago that humans truly started counting and using numbers. Together with the development of civilization came developed agriculture, and the need for measurement and score-keeping was increased.

For this reason, a formal number system and mathematics were developed first in the Middle East, in what was then called Mesopotamia. Mesopotamia was roughly situated in the area of modern-day Iraq and Kuwait. Allegedly, the system was pretty simple at first. Citizens used tokens that represented a certain number of items, such as one token equalling four goats, etc. This eventually evolved into a system of score marks pressed into clay, which ultimately went on to influence Greek mathematics.

3. Hindu-Arabic Numbers

Zero, meanwhile, was conceived later and elsewhere. Inspired by the Hindu religion, which allows for the concept of infinity and eternity, the Indians invented a symbol to represent nothing. The magic of the zero lies not in itself but its combination with other numbers.

The Indians were also the creators of today’s numbers, which are often referred to as Hindu-Arabic numbers. These comprise one or a combination of just ten symbols or digits: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 0.

Europe learned of this numeric system only around 1200 A.D., when they were introduced to it by an Italian mathematician called Leonardo Pisano Bigollo.

Pisano, also known as Fibonacci, is famous for the discovery of a mathematical sequence with countless applications. Yes, math buffs, it’s the well-known Fibonacci sequence, also called the Golden Mean.

The Roman numeric system, which was clumsy next to the newer inventions, gradually lost popularity in the West. It’s from here that they “slowly spread to conquer the world,'’ as Steven Law puts it.


2. Why is it Important to Learn Danish Numbers?

For us at DanishClass101, this is an easy question to answer! Because we know that numbers are a global unifier.

Counting and numbers have made our lives easier since they were first formulated, even in their most primitive forms.

Numbers in Industry

Without knowing your numbers, you can’t properly communicate about or deal with the following:

1) Your date/time of birth, i.e., your age: This is vital information to be able to give to people like doctors, employers, law enforcement, and so forth.

2) Banking: Worldwide, our monetary systems are built on numbers. Interest, credit scores, and loans all rely on math beyond simple finger counting.

3) Time: Without knowing how to say numbers, you can’t talk or ask about the time and expect to get a useful response. You don’t want to miss an appointment or schedule something for the wrong hour!

4) Ordering data: Numbers bring order to a mostly random life! Scientists even say that numbers and the way they are organized underpin the whole universe. From using them to count your meals’ calories and the number of likes your posts get on social media, to drawing up intricate data charts and explaining existence itself - numbers are what makes these things possible.

All of the above and more are reasons why it is important to know your numbers if you plan on travelling or becoming a foreign worker abroad, in Denmark or anywhere else!

1. Talking about Your Restaurant Visit in Danish

Eating out is fun, and often an experience you’d like to share. Take a pic, and start a conversation on social media in Danish. Your friend will be amazed by your language skills…and perhaps your taste in restaurants!

Hans eats at a restaurant with his friends, posts an image of the group eating, and leaves this comment:

POST

Let’s break down Hans’s post.

Vi er godt i gang med hovedretten. Mums mums!
“We are well underway with the main course. Yum yum!”

1- Vi er godt i gang med hovedretten.

First is an expression meaning “We are well underway with the main course.”
You can also replace “main course” with other nouns to make it clear that you’ve been busy with it for some time.

2- Mums mums!

Then comes the phrase - “Yum yum!”
Use this phrase when expressing that something is tasty, such as food or drinks. Mostly children use this phrase, so if you’re an adult saying it to another adult, it’s clear that you’re in a playful, humorous mood. It is inadvisable that you use this in serious conversation, though. You might furthermore be mistaken for trying to make people jealous if you post a picture of your food online, so be careful.

COMMENTS

In response, Hans’ friends leave some comments.

1- Er da slet ikke misundelig…

His girlfriend, Johanne, uses an expression meaning - “Not envious at all…”
This is an ironic or slightly sarcastic or ironic comment, with the intent to joke a bit. It means that you are actually envious!

2- Hvor var min invitation?

His college friend, Isak, uses an expression meaning - “Where was my invitation?”
This is yet another way to express that you’re envious of whatever the poster is experiencing, and it indicates that you feel a bit left out. If you know the people well, it will be clear to them whether or not you’re seriously complaining, or just having some fun with them.

3- Det ser hyggeligt ud.

His high school friend, Frederikke, uses an expression meaning - “It looks cozy.”
Use this to express that you think the scene looks pleasant and comfortable.

4- Velbekomme!

His neighbor, Gitte, uses an expression meaning - “Bon appetit!”
This is a loan-expression from French that means: “Eat well!” It is commonly used to wish someone a tasty meal in many Germanic languages.

    1. Common Ways to Say Sorry in Danish

    3 Ways to Say Sorry

    Nobody’s perfect, not anywhere in the world. Everybody makes mistakes, and does and says regrettable things. Then it’s time to apologize, as saying ‘I’m sorry’ is not in vain. It can be very healing! Did you know that hearing a sincerely-meant apology can have a noticeable effect on a person’s body? Research has shown that it slows down breathing and heart rate, and even causes a drop in blood pressure.

    Sometimes we cannot fix what’s broken, but we can make the experience a bit easier for anyone who suffered on account of our thoughtless actions or words.

    Here are a number of ways to say sorry in Danish. In any language, just make sure you really mean it! An insincere apology will not go down well with anyone.

    Woman Apologizing

    Jeg er ked af det.
    I’m sorry

    These words should precede anything else you have to say. Use them sincerely and whenever you are clearly in the wrong. Acknowledging your guilt and apologizing for any wrongdoing will lift your spirits too! Often, remorse can eat away at us, and a simple ‘I’m sorry’, in Danish or any other language, can open the door for forgiveness and resolution of a bad situation. It can be a true gift!

    Jeg vil gerne undskylde.
    I would like to apologize.

    This is a slightly more formal way to say ‘I’m sorry’ in Danish. Use this phrase if you’re addressing your superiors and/or elders.

    Jeg beklager oprigtigt.
    I sincerely apologize.

    If you feel strongly about your apology, this is another slightly more formal phrase to use. Keep it handy for graver errors, or you might come across as insincere!

    Jeg gør det ikke igen.
    I won’t do it again.

    A promise you can only make if you intend to keep it! Few things feel as bad as having to hear repeated apologies from someone for the same behavior - it means the ‘sorry’ is not sincere. Don’t be that person!

    Jeg vil sørge for ikke at begå denne fejl igen.
    I’ll make sure not to make this mistake again.

    A beautifully strong phrase! Again, say this only if you mean it - not just in the moment, but always! A bit more formal, this is an especially good phrase to use when apologizing to superiors and/or elders. It will make an especially good impression at the workplace, where accountability is an excellent quality to display!

    Det mente jeg ikke.
    I didn’t mean that.

    This is a tricky one… What did you mean, then?! Clear up any confusion with sincerity. Also, use this phrase only if the harm done or mistake made was due to an accident, and then admit to thoughtlessness on your part, if appropriate.

    Det er min skyld.
    It’s my fault.

    If the fault is really yours, own up to it. You will gain respect in the eyes of others! However, don’t take the blame when it’s not truly yours. It won’t be good for you, and ultimately you will not be respected much for it.

    Undskyld, jeg er egoistisk.
    I’m sorry for being selfish.

    This is a good phrase to keep handy, especially for your close relationships. It is difficult to admit you’re selfish, isn’t it?! However, it’s good to know when to be honest. We get used to our loved ones, which often means we forget that they need our good manners and unselfish behavior just as much as strangers do.

    Jeg håber, du tilgiver mig.
    I hope you will forgive me.

    This is a polite and gentle wish that can smooth over many harsh feelings. It also shows that the other person’s opinion and forgiveness are important to you.

    Jeg tager fuldt ansvar.
    I take full responsibility.

    This strong statement is similar to admitting that an error or transgression was your fault. It speaks of courage and the willingness to take remedial action. Good one to use…if you mean it!

    Jeg skulle ikke have gjort det.
    I shouldn’t have done it.

    This phrase is fine to use if you did or said something wrong. It shows, to an extent, your regret for having done or said what you did, and demonstrates that you understand your role in the mistake.

    Undskyld for at give dine penge sent tilbage.
    Sorry for giving your money back late.

    It’s rotten to have to loan money! Yet, it’s equally rotten to have to ask for the repayment of a loan. So, do your best not to pay late in the first place, but if it can’t be helped, this would be a good phrase to use!

    Vær nu ikke vred på mig.
    Please don’t be mad at me.

    Well, this is not a very advisable phrase to use if you are clearly in the wrong. If someone is justifiably angry with you, asking them not to be mad at you would be an unfair expectation. However, if you did something wrong by accident, and if the consequences were not too serious, this request would be OK.

    Undskyld, jeg kommer for sent.
    Sorry I’m late.

    Punctuality is valued in most situations, but if you really cannot help being late, then apologize! This way you show respect for your host, and win their approval.

    Jeg undskylder for at være ondskabsfuld over for dig.
    I apologize for being mean to you.

    Acknowledging your own meanness towards someone is no small thing, so good for you! Use this apology only if your intention is to seriously address your mean tendencies, or these words could become meaningless over time.


    2. How To Refuse Something Politely in Danish

    Woman Refusing

    Congratulations! Now you know how to apologize in Danish! After you have apologized for a mistake, focus on fixing whatever you can, and don’t punish yourself over something that cannot be taken back or reversed. That’s healthy for you! Regret can eat away at the soul, and even destroy it. It is ultimately a useless emotion if it consumes you.

    However, in language, we use apologies not only when we’ve transgressed or made mistakes. They come in handy in other situations too, when there has been no wrongdoing. Sometimes we need to express regret for having to refuse a gift, an offer, or an invitation. This can be somewhat tricky. Learn from specialists at DanishClass101 about how to use the correct Danish words for this kind of ‘sorry’!

    1. 10 Lines You Need for Introducing Yourself in Danish

    ”About

    First impressions are absolutely everything! Right? No, wrong - who you are every day is much more important. But first impressions are definitely not unimportant either. Make sure to introduce yourself correctly, as it could mean the difference between getting a job offer or a polite refusal from an employer. DanishClass101 shows you how to read, write and pronounce these self-introductions and conversation-starters like a native speaker!

    But first, a tip - wait to be asked before offering personal details such as your age. Good conversation is about unspoken reciprocity, and giving too many personal details too soon can be embarrassing for your Danish friend. Rather use phrases that encourage your friend to talk about him or herself - most people like doing that! Also, it shows you take real interest in other people.

    1- Hello, it’s nice to meet you.

    Hej, det er rart at møde dig.

    This phrase is an excellent way to start an introduction. It is a greeting that immediately expresses interest in the other person.

    2- My name is Freja.

    Mit navn er Freja.

    Self-explanatory - just replace ‘Freja’ with your own name! Also, pay close attention to what your new Danish acquaintance’s name is. Remembering it will make them feel that you are really interested in him/her as a person!

    Countries

    3- I’m from Denmark.

    Jeg er fra Danmark.

    Sharing something about yourself is a nice conversation starter. It shows that you’re willing to engage meaningfully with the other person. In an informal setting, you can expect the other person to respond in kind. At work, this is probably information you need to volunteer only if asked. Again, remember to replace ‘Denmark’ with your own country of birth!

    4- I live in Copenhagen.

    Jeg bor i København.

    Same as above - replace ‘Copenhagen’ with your town or city of abode!

    5- I’ve been learning Danish for a year.

    Jeg har været i gang med at lære dansk i et år.

    Say this only if it’s true, obviously. And prepare to dazzle your audience! If you have indeed worked faithfully at your Danish for a year, you should be pretty good at it! Use this phrase after your introduction - it is likely to indicate that you wish to engage in Danish conversation.

    Two people talking

    6- I’m learning Danish at DanishClass101.com.

    Jeg lærer dansk på DanishClass101.com.

    This will be the best reply if anyone asks (Very impressed, of course!) where you study Danish! Simply volunteering this information, especially in a casual conversation, could make you sound like a salesperson, and you want to avoid that. Often, an employer will want this information though, so best to memorize and have this phrase handy!

    7- I’m 27 years old.

    Jeg er 27 år gammel.

    This is a line that may just get you a ‘TMI!’ look from a stranger if you volunteer it without being asked. He/she may not be willing to divulge such an intimate detail about him/herself right at the start of your acquaintance, so don’t force reciprocity. However, it’s a good phrase to know in a job interview; again, probably best only if your prospective Danish employer asks. Also, remember to give your true age!

    First encounter

    8- I’m a teacher.

    Jeg er lærer.

    You’re still offering information about yourself, which lends good momentum to keep the conversation going! Replace ‘teacher’ with your own occupation - and learn the related vocabulary with DanishClass101!

    People with different jobs

    9- One of my hobbies is reading.

    En af mine hobbyer er at læse.

    Your hobby is another topic with lots of potential for starting a good conversation! People are often eager to talk about their hobbies, and why they like them!

    10- I enjoy listening to music.

    Jeg nyder at lytte til musik.

    If you’re still talking about your hobbies, this would be a good line to go with the previous one. Otherwise, wait for your conversation partner to start talking about what they enjoy doing!

    2. Important Tips for Introducing Yourself

    Introducing yourself

    A correct Danish introduction will make a good impression upon meeting a person for the first time. Why is this first impression important? Simple - it gives an indication of who you are as a person. So, while you want to be truthful when representing yourself, you also need to be prepared to put your best foot forward!

    First impressions are often lingering and difficult to change. In addition, it’s easier to make a negative impression than a good one, often without intending to. So, how can you make sure that your self-introduction will impress Danish natives?

    1- Research: First, research the culture! Different cultures have different social rules, and you will be halfway towards making a great first impression if you know the proper Danish customs for self-introductions. It will also help you avoid social mistakes - sometimes, what is acceptable in one culture is insulting in another, such as making eye contact, or giving a handshake. In your culture, what is appropriate when a person introduces him or herself?

    Also, be sure to distinguish between introductions in different situations, such as a formal and a social situation. There are bound to be differences in how you address people! The internet can be an important tool for this endeavor. Alternatively, you could visit your local library to search for books on this topic, or you could ask Danish friends to explain and demonstrate their cultural habits for introductions. Honoring someone’s culture shows that you respect it, and as we know - a little respect can go a very long way in any relationship!

    Someone studying

    2- Study the Correct Phrases and Vocabulary: Be sure to learn Danish phrases and vocabulary that tell people who you are, and that encourage them to engage in conversation with you. Each situation will determine how to address the person you want to introduce yourself to. Also, make sure your pronunciation is correct! It would be most valuable to have Danish-speaking friends who can help you with this. Or read on for a quick phrase and video lesson on Danish introductions right here at DanishClass101!

    3- Appearance: This is pretty obvious - if you want to make a good impression introducing yourself to anyone for the first time, you need to be neatly dressed and well groomed! A shabby, dirty or careless appearance and bad body odor are to be avoided at all costs; in most cultures, these will not impress!

    Also, make sure to dress appropriately, not only for the occasion, but also for the culture. For instance, bare shoulders or an open-necked shirt is an acceptable gear in many Western countries. Yet, in some cultures, dressing like this could deeply offend your host. No amount of good manners and properly expressed introductions is likely to wipe out a cultural no-no! So, be sure to know how to dress, and take care with your appearance when you are about to introduce yourself to someone for the first time!

    Following are some neat phrases with which you can introduce yourself in Danish, and get a conversation started too!

    Fars Dag: How to Celebrate Father’s Day in Denmark

    Father’s Day (or Fars Dag), admittedly, isn’t the most celebrated of Danish holidays, but that doesn’t mean that Danish fathers are left out in the cold! Keeping in mind that it takes place on the same date as the Constitution Day of Denmark, the honor and appreciation fathers are shown means that much more.

    At DanishClass101.com, we hope to make learning about Danish holidays and traditions both fun and informative! After all, learning about a country’s culture is a vital step forward in mastering the language.

    So let’s get started!

    Log in to Download Your Free Cheat Sheet - How to Improve Your Language Skills!

    1. What is Father’s Day in Denmark?

    Father’s Day is easily overlooked because of Constitution Day, as both fall on June 5 every year.

    The day is in many ways similar to Mother’s Day, but a significant difference is that most fathers probably take it less personally if the family has not remembered what day it is. They have often forgotten it themselves.

    Of course, you can also find expectant fathers around the country on Father’s Day. And even more children with a guilty conscience about having forgotten it—especially adult children.

    It is believed that Father’s Day stands in the shadow of Mother’s Day because the father role has not had an equal need to be celebrated and receive extra attention like the housewife role over time.

    2. Father’s Day Date: When is Father’s Day?

    Father's Day is on a Sunday

    Denmark celebrates Father’s Day each year on June 5, which happens to be the same date as the Danish Constitution Day. For this reason, on Constitution Day, Denmark tends to put Father’s Day on a shelf, though there are still a few typical traditions which we outlined below.

    3. Reading Practice: Father’s Day Celebrations

    Showing Appreciation for Dad

    How do the Danish celebrate Father’s Day? Read the Danish text below to find out about Danish holiday food for Father’s Day, and other Father’s Day celebrations in Denmark. You can find the English translation directly below it.

    Men de, som ikke har glemt dagen, køber som regel gaver i form af øl, vin eller stærkere drikkevarer, chokolade, en god middag eller en oplevelsespakke. Nogle vælger også at købe, hvad man måske kan betragte som typiske ting, som fædre altid kan bruge. For eksempel værktøj, underbukser eller udstyr til grillen.

    Traditioner for fars dag varierer fra familie til familie.

    Har man for eksempel mindre børn, kan man som far næsten med sikkerhed forvente at få en hjemmelavet gave. Men noget andet, som normalt også hører med til gaven, er et hjemmelavet kort. I kortet står der venlige ord og kærlige hilsner, som måske betyder mere for en far, end blomster gør på mors dag.

    I nogle familier kan det være tradition at servere morgenmad på sengen eller bare gøre lidt ekstra ud af morgenmaden.

    Andre vælger måske at vente til om eftermiddagen og overraske med kage, hvorpå der for eksempel står skrevet ‘far’ med glasur.

    Selvfølgelig er der også nogle, som venter med at fejre fars dag til om aftenen, hvor hele familien spiser ude eller laver manden i husets livret derhjemme.

    Nogle fædre kan måske også lide bare at få lov til at være i fred.

    But those who have not forgotten the day usually purchase gifts in the form of beer, wine, or stronger beverages, chocolate, a good dinner, or an experience package. Some also choose to buy what one might consider as typical things that fathers can always use. For example, tools, underpants, or equipment for the barbecue.

    Traditions for Father’s Day vary from family to family.

    For example, if you have small children, as a father you can almost certainly expect to get a homemade gift. But something else that also normally comes with the gift is a homemade card. Kind words and loving greetings are written in the card, which may mean more to a father than flowers do on Mother’s Day.

    In some families, it may be tradition to serve breakfast in bed or just make a little extra out of the breakfast.

    Others may choose to wait till the afternoon and surprise with cake on which, for example, “Father” is written in icing.

    Of course, there are also some people who wait to celebrate Father’s Day until the evening, when the whole family eats out or makes the man of the house’s favorite food at home.

    Some fathers may also like to just to be left in peace.

    4. Communication Problems…

    Do you know why Father’s Day is not celebrated on the second Sunday in November as in the other Nordic countries?

    Because the Board of Nordic traders, who would rather have Father’s Day to be in the fall, forgot to communicate the changing of the date properly. So Denmark held on to June 5.

    5. Useful Vocabulary for Father’s Day in Denmark

    Coffee, Donut, and Gifts

    Here’s some vocabulary for Father’s Day in Denmark!

    • Søndag — “Sunday”
    • Søn — “Son”
    • Datter — “Daughter”

    3. How is it Celebrated?

    Jesus Image in Stained Glass

    How is Easter celebrated in Denmark? Read the Danish text below to find out (you can find the English translation directly below it).


    I påsken holdes der mange påskefrokoster, hvor man spiser retter, der unægteligt ligner dem, man får til julefrokost. Der er fisk og smørrebrød, lune retter og til sidst ostebord. De lune retter må gerne indeholde lam, kylling eller æg. Hertil drikker man oftest påskebryg og så selvfølgelig snaps.

    Påskens farve er gul og grøn, og pynten består af påskeæg, påskekyllinger, påskelam og påskeharer.

    Alle fire symboliserer frugtbarhed, men i gamle dage kunne ægget også være et tegn på, at man var fri fra skyld eller gæld.

    Derudover hører tulipaner, påskeliljer og vintergækker som forårsbebudere også påsken til. Og det er meget almindeligt at have grene med små skud. Nogle laver egen påskepynt ved at puste æg og derefter male de tomme skaller.

    I Danmark er påskeæg oftest af chokolade og kan fås i forskellige størrelser eller formet som en påskehare. Men man kan også få påskeæg af pap, som så kan indeholde slik eller små chokoladeæg.

    Dyrere påskeæg er med marcipan- og nougatfyld og er dækket af et tykt lag chokolade.

    En sjov måde at få påskeæg på især for børn er ved at tage på æggejagt i haven, hvor påskeharen har gemt sine æg rundt omkring.

    Til påske sendes der gækkebreve. Klip et mønster i et papir og skriv et digt og dit navn med prikker. Gætter modtageren afsenderen, skylder afsenderen et påskeæg. Hvis ikke, er det omvendt.

    During Easter, many host Easter lunches, where food quite similar to the Christmas lunch is served. Examples include fish and open sandwiches, warm dishes, and a cheese tray. Warm dishes are often lamb, chicken, or eggs. With this the drinks served will typically be Easter brew and of course snaps.

    The official color of Easter is yellow, and the decorations include Easter eggs, Easter chickens, Easter lamb, and Easter Bunnies.

    All four represent fertility, but in the old days, the egg often meant that one was freed from guilt or debt.

    In addition, tulips, daffodils, and snowdrops, which serve as universal symbols of spring, belong to Easter. And it is very common to see branches with small buds. Some people make Easter decorations by blowing out the contents of the egg and painting the shells.

    In Denmark, you’ll find that most Easter eggs consist of chocolate and are available in various sizes, or shaped like an Easter Bunny. You can also get Easter eggs made of cardboard that contain candy or little chocolate eggs.

    More expensive Easter eggs contain marzipan and nougat, and are covered by a thick layer of chocolate.

    A fun way to get Easter eggs, especially for children, is to go hunting for them in the garden, where the Easter Bunny has hidden its eggs all over the place.

    For Easter, people send each other gækkebreve. Cut a pattern in paper and write your name using dots; if the recipient can guess the sender, the sender owes an Easter egg. If not, the opposite is true.

    4. Additional Information

    Do you know the name of the day when the Easter brew is launched?

    It’s called P-Day and is mostly celebrated by students. The “P” obviously stands for “Easter brew” (Påskebryg), as the “J” stands for “Christmas brew” (Julebryg). The launch of the Easter brew isn’t as heavily celebrated as the Christmas brew.

    5. Must-know Vocab

    Black and White Photos

    Here’s some vocabulary you should know for Easter Monday in Denmark!

    • Påske — “Easter”
    • Påskedag — “Easter Sunday”
    • Fejring — “Celebration”
    • Anden Påskedag — “Easter Monday”
    • Folkekirke — “Established church”
    • Mindes — “Remember”
    • Opstå — “Arise”
    • Kristus — “Christ”
    • Discipel — “Disciple”
    • Helligdag — “Holiday”
    • Opstandelse — “Resurrection”

    1. Common Phrases You’ll Need for a Date

    So, you have met your Danish love interest. Congratulations! Who knows where this could take you…?! However, the two of you have just met and you’re not ready to say the Danish word for love just yet. Great, it is better to get to know him/her first. Wow your prospective love by using these Danish date phrases to set up a spectacular first date.

    Danish Date Phrases

    Would you like to go out to dinner with me?

    • Kunne du tænke dig at gå ud at spise middag med mig?

    The important question! In most cultures, this phrase indicates: ‘I’m romantically interested in you’. Flirting in Danish is no different, so don’t take your date to Mcdonald’s!

    Are you free this weekend?

    • Er du ledig denne weekend?

    This is a preamble to asking your love interest on a date. If you get an immediate ‘Yes’, that’s good news!

    Would you like to hang out with me?

    • Kunne du tænke dig at hænge ud med mig?

    You like her/him, but you’re not sure if there’s chemistry. Ask them to hang out first to see if a dinner date is next.

    What time shall we meet tomorrow?

    • Hvad tid skal vi mødes i morgen?

    Set a time, and be sure to arrive early! Nothing spoils a potential relationship more than a tardy date.

    Where shall we meet?

    • Hvor skal vi mødes?

    You can ask this, but also suggest a place.

    You look great.

    • Du ser godt ud.

    A wonderful ice breaker! This phrase will help them relax a bit - they probably took great care to look their best just for you.

    You are so cute.

    • Du er så sød.

    If the two of you are getting on really well, this is a fun, flirtatious phrase to use.

    What do you think of this place?

    • Hvad synes du om dette sted?

    This another good conversation starter. Show off your Danish language skills!

    Can I see you again?

    • Kan jeg se dig igen?

    So the date went really well - don’t waste time! Make sure you will see each other again.

    Shall we go somewhere else?

    • Skal vi gå et andet sted hen?

    If the place you meet at is not great, you can suggest going elsewhere. It is also a good question to follow the previous one. Variety is the spice of life!

    I know a good place.

    • Jeg kender et godt sted.

    Use this with the previous question. However, don’t say if you don’t know a good place!

    I will drive you home.

    • Jeg kører dig hjem.

    If your date doesn’t have transport, this is a polite, considerate offer. However, don’t be offended if she/he turns you down on the first date. Especially a woman might not feel comfortable letting you drive her home when the two of you are still basically strangers.

    That was a great evening.

    • Det var en dejlig aften.

    This is a good phrase to end the evening with.

    When can I see you again?

    • Hvornår kan jeg se dig igen?

    If he/she replied ‘Yes’ to ‘Can I see you again?’, this is the next important question.

    I’ll call you.

    • Jeg ringer til dig.

    Say this only if you really mean to do it. In many cultures, this could imply that you’re keeping the proverbial backdoor open.

    2. The Most Romantic Ideas for a Date

    You learned all the Danish phrases to make a date - congratulations! Now you have to decide where to meet, which can be tricky. Discuss these options with your lover to gauge whether you like the same things. Check out romantic date ideas in Danish below!

    Date Ideas in Danish

    museum

    • museum

    If you’re looking for unique date ideas that are fun but won’t break the bank, museums are the perfect spot! You won’t be running out of things to say in the conversations.

    candlelit dinner

    • middag med stearinlys

    A candlelit dinner is perhaps best to reserve for when the relationship is getting serious. It’s very intimate, and says: “Romance!” It’s a fantastic choice if you’re sure you and your date are in love with each other!

    go to the zoo

    • tage i zoologisk have

    This is a good choice for shy lovers who want to get the conversation going. Just make sure your date likes zoos, as some people dislike them. Maybe not for the first date, but this is also a great choice if your lover has children - you’ll win his/her adoration for inviting them along!

    go for a long walk

    • gå en lang tur

    Need to talk about serious stuff, or just want to relax with your date? Walking together is soothing, and a habit you can keep up together always! Just make sure it’s a beautiful walk that’s not too strenuous.

    go to the opera

    • gå i operaen

    This type of date should only be attempted if both of you love the opera. It can be a special treat, followed by a candlelit dinner!

    go to the aquarium

    • tage på akvariet

    Going to the aquarium is another good idea if you need topics for conversation, or if you need to impress your lover’s kids! Make sure your date doesn’t have a problem with aquariums.

    walk on the beach

    • gå på stranden

    This can be a very romantic stroll, especially at night! The sea is often associated with romance and beauty.

    have a picnic

    • tage på skovtur

    If you and your date need to get more comfortable together, this can be a fantastic date. Spending time in nature is soothing and calms the nerves.

    cook a meal together

    • lave et måltid sammen

    If you want to get an idea of your date’s true character in one go, this is an excellent date! You will quickly see if the two of you can work together in a confined space. If it works, it will be fantastic for the relationship and create a sense of intimacy. If not, you will probably part ways!

    have dinner and see a movie

    • spise middag og se en film

    This is traditional date choice works perfectly well. Just make sure you and your date like the same kind of movies!

    Valentine's Day Words in Danish

    You mean so much to me.

    • Du betyder så meget for mig.

    This is a beautiful expression of gratitude that will enhance any relationship! It makes the receiver feel appreciated and their efforts recognized.

    Will you be my Valentine?

    • Vil du være min Valentine?

    With these words, you are taking your relationship to the next level! Or, if you have been a couple for a while, it shows that you still feel the romance. So, go for it!

    You’re so beautiful.

    • Du er så smuk.

    If you don’t know how to say ‘You’re pretty’ in Danish, this is a good substitute, gentlemen!

    I think of you as more than a friend.

    • Jeg tænker på dig som mere end en ven.

    Say this if you are not yet sure that your romantic feelings are reciprocated. It is also a safe go-to if you’re unsure about the Danish dating culture.

    A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you.

    • Hundrede hjerter ville være for få til at bære al min kærlighed til dig.

    You romantic you…! When your heart overflows with love, this would be the best phrase to use.

    Love is just love. It can never be explained.

    • Kærlighed er bare kærlighed. Det kan aldrig blive forklaret.

    If you fell in love unexpectedly or inexplicably, this one’s for you.

    You’re so handsome.

    • Du er så flot.

    Ladies, this phrase lets your Danish love know how much you appreciate his looks! Don’t be shy to use it; men like compliments too.

    I’ve got a crush on you.

    • Jeg har et crush på dig.

    If you like someone, but you’re unsure about starting a relationship, it would be prudent to say this. It simply means that you like someone very, very much and think they’re amazing.

    You make me want to be a better man.

    • Du giver mig lyst til at være en bedre mand.

    Gentlemen, don’t claim this phrase as your own! It hails from the movie ‘As Good as it Gets’, but it is sure to make your Danish girlfriend feel very special. Let her know that she inspires you!

    Let all that you do be done in love.

    • Lad alt, hvad du gør, ske i kærlighed.

    We hope.

    You are my sunshine, my love.

    • Du er mit solskin, min kærlighed.

    A compliment that lets your lover know they bring a special quality to your life. Really nice!

    Words can’t describe my love for you.

    • Ord kan ikke beskrive min kærlighed til dig.

    Better say this when you’re feeling serious about the relationship! It means that your feelings are very intense.

    We were meant to be together.

    • Det var meningen, vi skulle være sammen.

    This is a loving affirmation that shows you see a future together, and that you feel a special bond with your partner.

    If you were thinking about someone while reading this, you’re definitely in love.

    • Hvis du tænkte på nogen, mens du læste dette, er du helt sikkert forelsket.

    Here’s something fun to tease your lover with. And hope he/she was thinking of you!

    I love you.

    7. 15 Most Common Break-Up Lines

    Danish Break-Up Lines

    Instead of moving towards marriage or a long-term relationship, you find that the spark is not there for you. That is a pity! But even though breaking up is never easy, continuing a bad or unfulfilling relationship would be even harder. Remember to be kind to the person you are going to say goodbye to; respect and sensitivity cost nothing. Here are some phrases to help you break up gently.

  • We need to talk.
    • Vi har brug for at tale sammen.

    This is not really a break-up line, but it is a good conversation opener with a serious tone.

    It’s not you. It’s me.

    • Det er ikke dig. Det er mig.

    As long as you mean it, this can be a kind thing to say. It means that there’s nothing wrong with your Danish lover as a person, but that you need something different from a relationship.

    I’m just not ready for this kind of relationship.

    • Jeg er bare ikke klar til denne slags forhold.

    Things moved a bit fast and got too intense, too soon? Painful as it is, honesty is often the best way to break up with somebody.

    Let’s just be friends.

    • Lad os bare være venner.

    If the relationship was very intense, and you have sent many ‘i love u’ texts in Danish, this would not be a good breakup line. Feelings need to calm down before you can be friends, if ever. If the relationship has not really developed yet, a friendship would be possible.

    I think we need a break.

    • Jeg synes, ​​vi har brug for en pause.

    This is again honest, and to the point. No need to play with someone’s emotions by not letting them know how you feel. However, this could imply that you may fall in love with him/her again after a period of time, so use with discretion.

    You deserve better.

    • Du fortjener bedre.

    Yes, he/she probably deserves a better relationship if your own feelings have cooled down.

    We should start seeing other people.

    • Vi bør begynde at se andre mennesker.

    This is probably the least gentle break-up phrase, so reserve it for a lover that doesn’t get the message!

    I need my space.

    • Jeg har brug for min plads.

    When a person is too clingy or demanding, this would be an suitable break-up phrase. It is another good go-to for that lover who doesn’t get the message!

    I think we’re moving too fast.

    • Jeg synes, ​​vi går for hurtigt frem.

    Say this if you want to keep the relationship, but need to slow down its progress a bit. It is also good if you feel things are getting too intense for your liking. However, it is not really a break-up line, so be careful not to mislead.

    I need to focus on my career.

    • Jeg har brug for at fokusere på min karriere.

    If you feel that you will not be able to give 100% in a relationship due to career demands, this is the phrase to use. It’s also good if you are unwilling to give up your career for a relationship.

    I’m not good enough for you.

    • Jeg er ikke god nok til dig.

    Say this only if you really believe it, or you’ll end up sounding false. Break-ups are usually hard for the receiving party, so don’t insult him/her with an insincere comment.

    I just don’t love you anymore.

    • Jeg elsker dig ikke mere.

    This harsh line is sometimes the best one to use if you are struggling to get through to a stubborn, clingy lover who won’t accept your break up. Use it as a last resort. Then switch your phone off and block their emails!

    We’re just not right for each other.

    • Vi er bare ikke rigtige for hinanden.

    If this is how you truly feel, you need to say it. Be kind, gentle and polite.

    It’s for the best.

    • Det er for det bedste.

    This phrase is called for if circumstances are difficult and the relationship is not progressing well. Love should enhance one’s life, not burden it!

    We’ve grown apart.

    • Vi er vokset fra hinanden.

    Cross-cultural relationships are often long-distance ones, and it is easy to grow apart over time.

    3 Reasons to Learn a Language Alone

    Learning Alone

    1. Learn at Your Own Pace and On Your Schedule

    In today’s fast-paced world, there just isn’t time for traditional classroom instruction. Between getting to class and studying on some professor or teacher’s schedule, traditional classroom learning is simply impossible to fit in. But when you learn Danish alone, you can study in bed if you like and whenever suits your schedule best, making it far easier to actually reach your goal of learning and mastering the language.

    2. Learning a Language on Your Own Reduces Stress and Anxiety

    Speaking in front of a class, pop quizzes, and tests are just a few of the stressors you will encounter when you learn a language in a traditional classroom setting. Specifically, these are external stressors that often derail most people’s dream of learning a new language. But when you learn Danish alone, there are no external stressors. Without the external stress and anxiety, it becomes much easier and more exciting to study Danish and reach your very own goals—all on your own!

    3. Learning Danish Alone Helps Improve Cognitive Function and Overall Success

    Learning a language on your own is indeed more challenging in some ways than being taught in a traditional classroom setting. In fact, while classroom instruction requires more rote memorization and following instructions, studying a language on your own requires more problem-solving and higher cognitive function to self-teach lessons and hit goals. So while it’s more challenging and requires higher levels of cognition, teaching yourself a language pays dividends throughout life by better preparing you for social/work opportunities that arise.

    Language Learning Tips: How to Avoid Awkward Silences

    Avoid Awkward Silences

    Yes, even beginners can quickly learn conversational Danish well enough to carry on real conversations with native speakers. Of course, beginners won’t be able to carry a conversation the same way they could in their native language. But, just knowing a few tips like which questions to ask to keep a conversation going are all you need to speak and interact with real native speakers! But before we get to specific suggestions, let’s first take a closer look at how having real Danish conversations is so vital to your mastery of the language.

    Learning to Carry a Conversation is Vital to Mastery of Any Language

    Communicating with other people is the very point of language and conversation is almost second nature in our native tongue. For beginners or anyone learning a new language, conversations aren’t easy at all and even simple Danish greetings can be intimidating and awkward.

    However, there are 3 vital reasons why you should learn conversational Danish as quickly as possible:

    • Avoid Awkward Silences: Nothing kills a conversation faster than long periods of awkward silence, so you need practice and specific strategies to avoid them.
    • Improve the Flow of Conversation to Make a Better Impression: When you know what to say to keep a conversation going, communication becomes much easier and you make a better impression on your listener.
    • Master the Language Faster: Nothing will help you learn to speak Danish faster and truly master the language than having real conversations with native speakers. Conversations quickly expose you to slang, cultural expressions, and vocabulary that force you to absorb and assimilate information faster than any educational setting—and that’s a great thing!

    But how can you possibly have real conversations with real Danish people if you are just starting out?

    3 Conversation Strategies for Beginners

    Conversation

    1. Ask Questions to Keep a Conversation Going

    For beginners and even more advanced speakers, the key is to learn to ask questions to keep a conversation going. Of course, they can’t be just random questions or else you may confuse the listener. But, by memorizing a few key questions and the appropriate time to use them, you can easily carry a conversation with minimal vocabulary or experience. And remember, the more Danish conversations you have, the quicker you will learn and master the language!

    2. Learn Core Vocabulary Terms as Quickly as Possible

    You don’t need to memorize 10,000’s of words to learn conversational Danish. In fact, with just a couple hundred Danish words you could have a very basic Danish conversation. And by learning maybe 1,000-2,000 words, you could carry a conversation with a native speaker about current events, ordering in restaurants, and even getting directions.

    3. Study Videos or Audio Lessons that You Can Play and Replay Again and Again

    If you want to know how to carry a conversation in Danish, then you need exposure to native speakers—and the more the better. Ideally, studying video or audio lessons is ideal because they provide contextualized learning in your native language and you can play them again and again until mastery.

    How to Transform Your Daily Commute Into Learning a Language

    Learn a language during your commute!

    Today, classrooms are no longer the only or even best place to learn a new language like Danish. More and more people are finding that they can easily learn a language just about anywhere they have a few minutes of spare time, including their daily commute to work. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average American spends over 50 minutes a day commuting to and from work, or over 300 hours a year.

    Rethinking Your Daily Commute to Work

    But rather than simply sitting in traffic and wasting the time, you can instead use your daily commute to literally learn Danish in just a few short months! DanishClass101 has developed specialized learning tools that you can use on your commute to work (and home again) to master the language in your spare time.

    But before we look at how to transform your commute home into a mini-classroom, let’s take a closer look at 4 reasons why traditional classroom settings just aren’t the best option for most people in today’s fast-paced world.

    • Difficulty Getting to and From Class
    • Learning on Someone Else’s Schedule
    • Very Expensive and May Cost $1,000’s to Complete
    • Can Take Years to Finally Complete Classes and Learn the Language

    The simple truth is that traditional classroom instruction is simply not a viable option for most people in today’s very fast-paced, time-starved world. Now let’s examine how you can learn a language faster, more easily, and at far less expense than traditional classes—all during your commute to work and back home again!

    Bus

    3 Reasons Your Daily Commute Can Help You Master a Language

    1. The Average Commute Time is More than 300 Hours Per Year

    Between the commute to work and getting back home again, over 6 hours a week is completely wasted and not helping you reach any goals or objectives. But thanks to online language learning platforms with audiobooks and other resources that you can access during your commute, you can easily transform wasted time into tangible progress towards learning a new language. With over 300 hours available annually, your daily commute could provide you with enough time to literally master a new language each and every year!

    2. Increase Your Earning Potential While Commuting to Work

    How would you like to transform all those spare commuting hours each week into more money for a new car, house, or even a dream vacation? According to research, someone making $30,000 per year can boost their annual income by $600 or more per year by learning a second language. Added up over the course of a lifetime, you can boost your total earnings by $70,000 or more while achieving your dream of learning a new language during your daily commute!

    How? From work-at-home translation jobs to working overseas, there are many ways to leverage your second language into more money in your bank account! So instead of wasting your precious time, you can make your commute more productive and profitable and the more languages you learn, the higher your income potential.

    3. Repetition is Key to Mastering a New Language

    Not sure if it’s practical to learn another language while commuting to and from work each day? Well not only is it possible—learning in your car on the way to and from work each day can actually help you learn and master Danish or any language much faster! The simple truth is that repetition is absolutely vital to truly internalizing and mastering any language. So, if you listen to audiobooks or even audio lessons on your commute to work and then repeat the same lesson on your commute home, the information is more likely to be “locked-in” to your long-term memory!
