Moving forward with very slow steps with the book I’m following to learn Danish “Colloquial Danish”.
It’s not a bad or boring book, but the ordinary methods of learning a new language [with books,formal curriculum & courses] don’t work well with me, I keep forgetting what I just learned from them!
I learn much more from movies, radio & social media. But the ordinary ways are very important [I know ] it’s important to learn systematically and understand the grammar and all that.
Specially, that I’m serious about learning Danish and planning to join Folk high school in Denmark next year, so it’s not just only because I love Denmark, the Danish culture and the language sooo much. ♥️
So, I should continue with the book and move forward faster.
Anyway, I’m now on chapter 7 and it’s called “små problemer – small problems” and there is an interesting exercise that I want to share it with you now.
It’s for practicing the various ways of expressing Liking & Disliking in Danish.
