    Comments about Danish, Compact:

    I bought the CD set to use in my car on the way to work. They have been great for that. The lessons are progressive and build on each other. These are much better than some Spanish CDs I tried from another company. Clear sound quality and not rushed. I hope they come out with Danish 2 soon.

    Comments about Danish Phase 1, Units 1-10:

    I downloaded Pimsleur Danish lessons without knowing what to expect. I listened to the audio courses everyday and I was surprised by how much fun I was having. Each lesson starts with a conversation. You're then taught the vocabulary words slowly and you repeat them often. By the end of the 30 minutes lesson, you can understand the conversation held in the beginning. You won't have a large vocabulary at the end of the 10 lessons, but what you know you will know very well. It's not just mindless repetition either. At times you will be asked to say things you haven't heard before, but by using previously taught sentence structures you can figure out how to say them. There are a few words you will learn that do not show up on the reading lessons, so you will know what they mean and how to say them, but not how to spell them. The hardest part about Danish, though, is the pronunciation. The Pimsleur method is great for developing a near native accent. My biggest issue is that there are only 10 lessons and I'm kind of addicted. I can't seem to find any other resources that are as satisfying. PLEASE ADD MORE LESSONS!!!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Make sure all vocabulary taught is represented in the reading lessons.
    ADD MORE LESSONS PLEASE! TAK

    Comments about Danish, Compact:

    This is an excellent ways to actually learn how to speak or even write the language. Rather than lists of words to memorize and never feeling like you can converse, this program helps you to use the language.

    I use this in the car when i'm driving to places as it makes excellent use of my time. The big down side is that there is not enough lessons and it only helps with the mere basics. It helps get you started but if you already know how to speak the basics you are better grabbing a grammar book and painfully practice constructing sentences.

    Generally the speed and pauses they give you are perfect, but I find myself on occasion stumbling and speaking while the correct response is spoken. Going through the lesson a couple of times helps.

    Comments about Danish, Compact:

    I am Danish and bought this for my husband so he can learn some Danish. He listens to it on his way to work. He is already getting a better grasp of pronunciation and the lessons can explain things better to him than I can. When we are together we use the things he has learned and add phrases and words.
    I am sad to see that there are no more phases of Danish available since this really seems to work for my husband. I guess we will just work on it on our own now when he has some of the basics down.

    Comments about Danish Phase 1, Units 1-10:

    Preparing for trip to Denmark in September. A great help provided by this program for the difficult pronunciation of Danish, More documentation would help the learner. I hope an intermediate And advanced version can be offered since Danish instruction is a limited resource elsewhere. This is a most helpful start, however.
