I taught myself Danish...

I am Dutch, so to read it is quite easy. To understand it is quite another matter, but listening to P1 and watching Danish television on the Web helps a lot. And a good friend of mine is Danish and I always ask him to speak Danish to me just to 'get my ears around the sound'. Most of it I can follow quite easily. Sometimes I'm missing something because I don't recognise the word. But often I can 'reconstruct' it afterwards from the context.

Too bad I don't speak Danish, but it's good to see him, and to finally hear how his name is pronounced!  ;D

I'm listening to the guy talk in that Norgard show.  Is it normal for Danish to speak slowly like that, or is it just the host?  He seems to talk in spurts. 

Nice language though :)
