2 In Danish Learning Journey

Erm hello Danish?

3 months away from this space and I came back with a new language! That kind of sounds cooler than it really is (as with everything online).

Honestly, I don’t know where I’m going with this, nor how long this is going to last. But it appears that I’ve developed an interest in Danish recently (i.e. last week).

Pardon all the tentative terms. I’m still trying to wrap my head around how I just went from absolutely zero knowledge of Danish (and Denmark) to having an interest in the language. The geography noob in me can’t even pinpoint the country on the map…

So. It started with randomly watching The Chestnut Man on Netflix a couple of days ago. The premise looked promising and right up my alley. And indeed I enjoyed it very much.

And I got intrigued by the language.

I’m basically clueless when it comes to Scandinavian languages. It’s a region that I’ve never given much thought about and know next to nothing about. And that is going to change, hopefully.

So, I got intrigued.

And like every other language learning, I YouTube-ed “basic Danish lessons” and watched a couple of videos.

I switched my LING app to Danish and did a couple of exercises.

I went to watch ore YouTube.

I went to the bookstore to look for Danish textbooks in English. I saw three, none that I really liked.

I went to the Japanese section. They carried very few European language textbooks, none for Danish.

I googled Japanese textbooks for Danish.

I went to Amazon JP.

Yup. You get it. hahaha.

All these happened within a week. I’m glad I still have that ‘action-taker’ in me. Yeah, while I procrastinate on everything else I should do.

But I’m excited. 🙂

Send Danish resources my way please. And please say hi if you are also learning Danish!!
