It is always nice to be able to say a few words when visiting a country. In Denmark the main language is Danish, but most people speak English, too, especially the younger generation. If you drive around in Denmark and visit smaller villages in the country side, the older folks may not speak much English and knowing a few phrases and words will help you and Danes are ALWAYS impressed when foreigners can speak a little Danish!

The Danish language is very influenced by other languages especially French, German and English. The special thing about the Danish Language is that it has 28 letters. There are three more vowels; æ, ø and å
