Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Becky: Hi everyone, Becky here, and welcome back to DanishClass101.com. This is Basic Bootcamp Lesson 5: Counting from 100-1,000,000 in Danish. This is the fifth and last in a five-part series that will help you ease your way into Danish.
Anna: Goddag, jeg er Anna. Hi, I’m Anna.
Becky: In this lesson, we'll continue with more Danish numbers, but we will venture into higher number territory - the numbers over 100 all the way to 1 million.
Anna: Sounds great!
Becky: You’ll be listening to 2 people at an auction.
Anna: That’s right!
Becky: Let's listen to the conversation.

Becky: five-thousand, ten-thousand, fifty-thousand, one-hundred-thousand, one million!
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Becky: Let's use these numbers a little and talk about how rich you are, if you are a millionaire in Denmark.
Anna: Ok - one million Danish kroner is equivalent to 180,000 USD.
Becky: So if you are already a millionaire in USD, your money will look pretty good in Danish kroner.
Anna: (laughs) yeah. You just might be a millionaire in Denmark!
Becky: That’s true. Ok, now let's take a look at the vocabulary for this lesson.

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Becky: Let’s take a closer look at the usage of some of the words and phrases from this lesson. Anna, how do you count over one hundred in Danish?
Anna: We've already learned "hundred," which is “hundred”. So, to build multiples of one hundred, simply place one of the numbers from 1 to 9 before “hundred.”
Becky: And we learned how to count from one to ten in Danish in the last lesson, so this lesson will be much simpler. Let’s try counting the multiples of one hundred in Danish, starting from one hundred.
Anna: et hundred - one hundred {pause} to hundred - two hundred {pause} tre hundred - three hundred {pause} fire hundred- four hundred {pause} fem hundred - five hundred {pause} seks hundred- six hundred {pause} syv hundred - seven hundred {pause} otte hundred - eight hundred {pause} ni hundred - nine hundred.
Becky: Alright, so now we know the multiples of one hundred. Let’s move on to the grammar.

Lesson focus

Becky: In this lesson, you’ll learn how to count large numbers in Danish. We’ll continue by talking about four-digit numbers. First, let’s learn how to say multiples of a thousand.
Anna: Okay, in Danish “thousand” is “tusind”. To say multiples of a thousand, add one of the numbers from 1 to 9 before “tusind”. The rule is the same as with “hundred”. So one thousand is “et tusind” and so on.
Becky: Anna, could you say them all in Danish? Listeners, please repeat after Anna.
Anna: et tusind-one thousand, {pause} to tusind-two thousand, {pause} tre tusind-three thousand,{pause} fire tusind-four thousand,{pause} fem tusind-five thousand,{pause} seks tusind-six thousand ,{pause} syv tusind-seven thousand,{pause} otte tusind-eight thousand {pause} ni tusind-nine thousand.
Becky: Follow the same rule for bigger numbers. Now, we move on to the numbers from 10,000 to 100,000.
Anna: That’s right. All the way up to “nine hundred thousand,” “ni hundred tusind,” the system is logical and easy, like the English number system. Just remember that all the numbers are contracted into one long phrase.
Becky: For example, “one hundred and thirty two thousand four hundred and ninety six” in Danish is
Anna: Et hundred to og tredive tusind fire hundred og seks og halvfems
Becky: It may be overwhelming to read, but you’ll gradually get used to it. And in Danish, large numbers like the one we just had are always written with digits and not letters.
Anna: Please also note that in English you put an “and” before the units digit of a number. But in Danish you won’t need to add it after “hundred,” when followed by a number of thousands like in the example we just gave, or after “tusind,” when followed by a number above one hundred.
Becky: For example, “ten thousand two hundred and eighty-seven” is
Anna: Ti tusind to hundred og syv og firs
Becky: Great, so we have learned up to four-digit numbers in Danish. And this rule works all the way up to nine-hundred-thousand. Oh and before we go, can you give us the last one? One million?
Anna: In Danish, it is “en million”. “Million” is million, so “en million” is one million. Again, “en million”. Please note that once you have more than one million, “million” changes to its plural form “millioner.” Once more, millioner.
