Publisher's Summary

Surprise your friends! Astonish your family! With Pimsleur® you'll be speaking and understanding like a native in no time. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes!
This course includes lessons 6-10 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.
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.

Does a great job teaching you on your commute.

Pimsleur won't make you literate, but it will help you understand and speak a new language.
It's a great reinforcement tool in the car, but would be best coupled with, or preceding, Duolingo (free) or Rosetta Stone (expensive)
