Publisher's Summary

The Pimsleur® method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You'll be speaking and understanding in no time flat!
This course includes lessons 1-5 from the Danish level 1 program, featuring 2.5 hours of language instruction. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons is included in each lesson. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension and on learning to speak Danish. A user's guide is included.
The Danish language, a North Germanic language based on Old Norse, is spoken by some six 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.

Unexpectedly amazing.

Seriously, this course is amazing. It’s really effective. I strongly recommend it. I didn’t expect it to be so effective.

Not suitable for holidays

The method of teaching is fine - lots of repetition which seems to work ok. Could do with slightly longer pauses to think about your answer, so not really suitable for listening to while doing other things (which I wanted to do) as you need to able to use the pause button.

My BIG complaint about this is the content. The first three and a half hours are learning to ask people if they speak Danish and tell them you are American! (I gave up after that).

As a Brit going to Denmark for 3 nights I just need to learn some basics like 'yes, no, please, thank you, sorry, excuse me', and how to ask for train tickets, check platform numbers, ask where to find a taxi, or a toilet or a tourist info office, booking into a hotel, ordering food, paying a bill, shopping etc.

In practice you never need to ask if someone speaks English as whatever language you speak to them in, and no matter what you say, they will probably realise you are foreign and if they speak English they will reply in it and if they don't they will reply in their language and shrug.

This is much more suitable as an introduction to learning the whole language for if you are going to be living in the country and want to be fluent. Either that or they are just dragging it out to get you to buy more sections - either way it's a waste of time, money and effort if you just want practical basic phrases to get around abroad for s few days.

The best language courses for basic, holiday language are the Collins ones, such a pity they don't do Danish.

Really disappointed. with this one.
