Finding out more about Danish

Did you think Danish was only spoken in Denmark?

In fact it is also spoken in Greenland and the Faeroe Islands, with a smaller pocket of speakers just across the Danish border in Germany. There are over 5 million speakers of Danish - that's a lot of people to talk to if you know their language!

At BBCi there is a nice summary of facts about Danish, and some more phrases for you to practise. Visit BBCi Languages >>

Or you might want to take a short online course to build on what you have already learned about Danish. A site called SpeakDanish offers you a chance to practise short pieces of Danish and listen to how it is pronounced >>
