Cultural Insight
Sydney: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Asger: It can sometimes be tricky to talk about possession in Danish because of the pronoun sin, "one’s own." Sin is the reflexive form of hans and hendes, "his" and "her," and can be used only when referring to the subject. However, for some Danish dialects it’s fine to use hans or hendes instead of sin.

Outro

Sydney: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Asger: På gensyn!
