He who wants to speak must write!

Learning foreign languages is not always easy. Language students often find speaking particularly difficult in the beginning. Many do not have the courage to say sentences in the new language. They are too afraid of making mistakes. For students like this, writing can be a solution. For he who wants to learn to speak well should write as much as possible! Writing helps us to adapt to a new language. There are many reasons for this. Writing is different to speaking. It is a much more complex process. When writing, we take more time to consider which words to use. In doing so, our brain works with the new language more intensively. We are also much more relaxed when writing. There is no one there waiting for an answer. So we slowly lose the fear of the language. Furthermore, writing promotes creativity. We feel freer and play with the new language more. Writing also allows us more time than speaking. And it supports our memory! But the biggest advantage of writing is the impersonal form. Meaning, we can closely examine the outcome of our wording. We see everything clearly in front of us. This way we can fix our mistakes ourselves and learn in the process. What you write in the new language is theoretically not important. What's important is formulating written sentences on a regular basis. If you want to practice you could look for a pen pal overseas. Then you should meet in person sometime. You will see: Speaking is now much easier!

Guess the language!

Danish is the native language of approximately 5 million people. It is a member of the North Germanic family of languages. That means that it is related to Swedish and Norwegian. The vocabulary of these three languages is almost identical. If a person speaks one of these languages, he can also understand the other two. Therefore, there is some doubt that the Scandinavian languages are different languages. They could just be regional forms of a single language. Danish itself is divided into many different dialects.

However, these are increasingly supplanted by the standard language. In spite of this, new dialects emerge, particularly in the urban areas of Denmark. They are called social dialects. With social dialects, the pronunciation of words reveals the age and social status of the speaker. This phenomenon is typical for the Danish language. It is much less distinct in other languages. This makes Danish a particularly exciting language.
