Cultural Insight
Sydney: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Asger: If you want to answer negatively but without being too direct, you can add the word rigtigt after the ikke. This will mean "I don't really…." So if you want to say "I don't really know," it will be jeg ved det ikke rigtigt.
