                    Nice to see a thread about languages considering I'm a foreign languages teacher!! I wish the majority of my pupils would realise the benefits of being able to speak another language. For the record English is my native tongue and I'm fluent in French and German which I teach. Have also learnt Dutch and Japanese whilst at Uni (the japanese was whilst in France. Learning a foreign language in a foreign language is quite interesting!!) Also learnt some Portuguese for my trip to Brazil last summer. Did Latin at school as well which frankly was and is a waste of time. My headteacher at school is keen on kids learning Esperanto. God help us!!!!

                      Also i forgot to add i speak very little French. I got an E in my GCSE Haha. Also my mate taught me 'gibberish', yes it is actually aform of language. You add 'adakee' to the end of a word, so you can speak about whatever you want infront of anyone and they dont know what your saying

                                And I guess you didn't succeeded on that one?

                                The modern spoken Danish is characterized by a very strong tendency of reduction of many sounds making it particularly difficult for foreigners to understand and properly master. Since I meet alot of people in the Food and beverage business, alot of people, tourists, business folks or whatever asks sometimes how certain words is pronounced correctly in danish. Some has difficult as I have said to pronounce the letters that are non-appearant?, Is there even a word like that ? in the normal alphabet. Anyway such letters as ", , ".. Thats an a+e, an o with a slash (/) over it and an a with a little o on top of it. Again those vocal-letters has different sounds to it. hence it is harder to pronounce and master the danish language. But with little help on the grammar in school or anywhere else should do it.
