On To The Next One



I have now completed Danish module 1! A little over 3 months later, I can now understand what the cashier at the grocery store is saying to me, I can talk about myself and my friends and family, and I have expanded my vocabulary. But going to Danish classes each day is not always easy. Sometimes I feel as if the class is going too slow or that we keep repeating the same things. And other days it's nice to get to know some of my classmates better and to learn new things that I can use. I would like if the class moved faster and that it would be a bit more challenging. I also think it would help if they actually gave us grades or did regular testing so that I would put more effort into it. But that is how it is, so, I'll keep pressing on. And now it's onto module 2!

(Oh and here is a picture I took a few weeks ago of an amazing scented candle I got as a gift (alongside some mini vases that were also a gift). It is called Campfire but doesn't smell much like one. Instead, it is a wonderful blend of coconut, woodsmoke, and vanilla. I love it! Do any of you have a favorite scented candle?)

  1. Hej :) I'm also learning Danish in Copenhagen. Which school are you going to? Since a few weeks ago I was attending the ntensive course at IA sprog - only twice a week and pretty effective! Have you considered something like that?
    I love the vases by the way!

    1. Hi Julia! It's great to hear from you :) I am living in Frederiksberg so I go to VUF. I am taking classes 4 days a week and in the "fast" class. I haven't looked too much into other schools yet... Are you enjoying your classes? Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Karen! I just switched over to an online course (Skype-conversations and lots of homework), because I don't have the time to go to class at night anymore. I enjoyed my classes and they were just right in their pace (I think it was 1 module in around 2 months. I'm pretty impatient and I hate feeling like wasting time :P), but after working a full day those extra 3 hours + 1 hour transport could sometimes get a little too much. I have to admit though, that after each class I instantly felt like I got a little better!
    I'm still having trouble with the language, but it's such an amazing feeling to finally be able to understand what the people around you are talking about... at least for the most part! :)
    Since the weekend is almost over, I wish you a nice, fresh start into the new week!

    1. The online course sounds interesting! I will have to look into it more. I'm sure we will be perfect in Danish soon ;)
