The Easiest and Fastest Way to Learn Danish
Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what’s going on in the world around you, learning Danish will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life.

The best part is that it doesn’t have to be difficult or take years to master. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and we get you speaking right from the first day. Pimsleur courses use a scientifically-proven method that puts you in control of your learning. If you’ve tried other language learning methods but found they simply didn’t stick, then you owe it to yourself to give Pimsleur a try.

Why Pimsleur?
- Quick + Easy – Only 30 minutes a day.
- Portable + Flexible – Core lessons can be done anytime, anywhere, and easily fit into your busy life.
- Proven Method – Works when other methods fail.
- Self-Paced – Go fast or go slow – it’s up to you.
- Based in Science – Developed using proven research on memory and learning.
- Cost-effective – Less expensive than classes or immersion, and features all native speakers.
- Genius – Triggers your brain’s natural aptitude to learn.
- Works for everyone – Recommended for ages 13 and above.

What’s Included?
- 30, 30-minute audio lessons
- 60 minutes of reading instruction to provide you with an introduction to reading Danish designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent
- in total, 16 hours of audio, all featuring native speakers
- a Reading Booklet and User’s Guide

What You’ll Learn
In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

In the final 10 lessons, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Lesson 30 to provide you with an introduction to reading Danish. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent.

The Pimsleur Method
We make no secret of what makes this powerful method work so well. Paul Pimsleur spent his career researching and perfecting the precise elements anyone can use to learn a language quickly and easily. Here are a few of his “secrets”:

The Principle of Anticipation
In the nanosecond between a cue and your response, your brain has to work to come up with the right word. Having to do this boosts retention, and cements the word in your mind.

Core Vocabulary
Words, phrases, and sentences are selected for their usefulness in everyday conversation. We don’t overwhelm you with too much, but steadily increase your ability with every lesson.

Graduated Interval Recall
Reminders of new words and structures come up at the exact interval for maximum retention and storage into your long-term memory.

Organic Learning
You work on multiple aspects of the language simultaneously. We integrate grammar, vocabulary, rhythm, melody, and intonation into every lesson, which allows you to experience the language as a living, expressive form of human culture.

Learning in Context
Research has shown that learning new words in context dramatically accelerates your ability to remember. Every scene in every Pimsleur lesson is set inside a conversation between two people. There are no drills, and no memorization necessary for success.

Active Participation
The Pimsleur Method + active learner participation = success. This method works with every language and every learner who follows it. You gain the power to recall and use what you know, and to add new words easily, exactly as you do in English.

The Danish Language
Danish, a North Germanic language based on Old Norse, is spoken by some 6 million people, primarily in Denmark, although there are some speakers in Norway, Sweden, the Faroese Islands, and Greenland. Within the country of Denmark, there are many different dialects spoken. Generally, the newscast or Standard Danish (also referred to as rigsdansk), which is based on the dialects spoken in and around Copenhagen, is considered the most desirable dialect. This course adheres as closely as possible to Standard Danish. Because of the large number of similarities between Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish, knowledge of any one of these languages makes it possible to understand the others. This is true for both spoken and written forms.

I have been patiently waiting for this to come out for years!! I already have the smaller 10 lesson course in Danish, and now I will finally begin to continue my learning with the Pimsleur method. An all around great way to learn a new language. Danish is a difficult language to learn because the resources are very limited outside of Denmark. I have tried many methods of learning it, and have found that the Pimsleur method works the best for me and is the simplest way to pick it up. I listen to them on the way to work, good for getting your mind all stretched out for the day... Now I can start my campaign to get a Danish 2 and Danish 3 put into production!! Thanks Pimsleur people, I'll be ordering my copy later today!

My wife was born in Copenhagen and we may move there to retire. I've chose n Pimsleur to learn Danish sufficient to pass the citizenship test. So far, because I have really bad hearing, I've not progressed well. I have trouble with soft consonants. My wife corrects me but I'm frustrated by having to relearn a word because it may end with an "l" instead of a "T." The program would be absolutely excellent for anyone with normal hearing or if there were a textual workbook to go with the audio.

Comments about Pimsleur Danish Level 1 MP3:

I found the Pimsleur Danish course a low stress way to learn. It was quite fun & almost addictive, listening to the program while driving to work and back daily. I learnt a lot and feel comfortable now with the basics. It was so good, I was genuinely sad to come to the end of the course. I have tried to find other programs to follow on with, but have not come across anything to equal the Pimsleur course. I am very much looking forward to Pimsleur developing Danish Part II, and hope you will email me ASAP when you do.

        Definitely not an easy language to pronounce ... I found myself speaking Danish to a Dane ... and he replied me without asking me ... "can you repeat it please" ... don't need to say more ... it worked for me

          I have tried learning a new language before. With Pimsleur I learned and retained each lesson. They have you speaking immediately. I have learned and retained so much since starting. It is a fantastic product! I only wish they offered more lessons in Danish! Please

          Service and delivery comments:

          The customer service was excellent, and it was delivered early. I was very happy.

          I love to travel, and I love to speak with the people when I get there! I have listened to Pimsleur in French, Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese, and now Dutch. If you want to learn a language, start with Pimsleur before you do anything else!
