Danish is a Scandinavian language, but English and Danish developed from a common parent language (Germanic) and have many words in common. When the Vikings came to England, the language they heard (Old English) was so similar to Old Norse that they had no great difficulty understanding it. Words from this period include: liv ( life ), hus (house ), spinde ( spin ), sommer (sommer ) and vinter ( winter ).


This is one reason why it is easy for an English-speaking student to learn Danish vocabulary. Another is that both Danish and English have borrowed from Greek, Latin and French, e.g. biskop ( bishop ),alter ( altar ), soldat ( soldier ), journalistand garage . Then, with the dominance of English and American culture in the 20th and 21st centuries, Danish has borrowed English words without changing their spelling, and modern Danish is full of words like pyjamas, software, hotdog, interview, television .


Danish and English also have a shared grammatical background. Languages are not static; they change over time. Both Danish and English have moved a long way from a grammatically complex language with three genders, several cases and a heavily inflected verbal system. The structure of phrases and sentences in Danish and English relies on word order and the use of prepositions, because the relationship between words can no longer be established through the use of cases.


The Danish alphabet has 29 letters: the 26 letters that are found in the English alphabet plus three vowels that are listed at the end: æ, ø, å . Danish has thus nine vowels (including y ), and since these can also form diphthongs, the student of Danish is faced with a large number of vowel sounds. Most of these do, however, occur in English. In the pronunciation section on the CD, all the Danish sounds are demonstrated by native Danish speakers.
