Swedish and Danish are closely related. And yet if often turns out that we have trouble understanding each other when we speak. If you are a Swedish-speaker wanting to learn Danish, you need to learn the differences and similarities in a systematic way. It is also crucial that you get the right kind of help with the pronunciation. This is what you get on our course in Danish for Swedes.
There are lots of everyday words that are completely different in Danish and Swedish. There are also lots of ‘trick words’ that sound the same, but mean something different. And finally, it is becoming ever harder for Swedes to understand Danish because the gap between spoken and written Danish keeps increasing.
We teach the differences and the similarities between Danish and Swedish words and expressions. We also focus on the aspects of grammar where the two languages differ. And we have special focus on working with pronunciation and listening practice in order to improve oral communication.
On our course in Danish for Swedes you will learn:
- The differences between Danish and Swedish
- How to communicate in Danish
- Danish pronunciation
- How to understand Danish when spoken relatively clearly
