A very clearly written book, but you will definitely need the MP3 if you haven't access to a Danish speaker. My main gripe would be that the notoriously difficult Danish pronunciation and mismatch between the written and oral forms of the language have not been sufficiently highlighted (though perhaps if they had, it would put people off). As it is the MP3 together with the book form an excellent introduction to the language, which, apart from the pronunciation, is not so difficult for English speakers to pick up.

I am only a few chapters into this course, but so far so good. The blend of written instruction and audio is working well.

I LOVE IT 4 Feb. 2015
By Lady of K - Published on Amazon.com
I love this book and if you listen and learn the characters and the chapters you will really be ready to talk to people in DK. To be clear, I am half danish and I speak it conversationally and have grown up with it in my ear every day of my life. To me, as someone who wants to get better and knows the sounds and the lilt it is a great book. It goes quickly to a place where I can learn rather than starting slowly on basic phrases for half the book. It really captures the colloquialisms, the speed of phrase, and the regional accents (the characters are each from a different region so you can learn to hear different accents). There isn't a young person KBH, an Arhus or an Odense as far as I can recall, but you will get the idea.

The chapters go in an ever more complicated narrative that ends up at train offices, dinner, weather, food, restaurants, political discussions, visits to museums, arguments, etc. It is a very danish narrative and if you finish the whole thing and go to denmark you will start laughing every time you are called upon to recreate (almost verbatim) conversations.

Very Helpful 28 Jan. 2015
By Sarah Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
I don't understand the negative review...this is the best Danish language course on the market. Each CD has dialogues that you can listen to and follow in your book. Listening to native Danish speakers is extremely helpful in learning how to pronounce words and also helps you get the rhythm of the language. This is worth every penny.

Don't use this if you're trying to teach someone 25 Mar. 2015
By Christine Ringsted - Published on Amazon.com

Trying to teach my boyfriend Danish with this book wasn't easy.
It might be my way of teaching, but most of the stuff in the book is not important to what i want him to learn. Too much technical stuff (grammar and things like that) and not enough "trial and error" where i could just correct him. It made him give up... We didn't make it through the first chapter... Bought an app instead that seems to motivate him more.

Very confusing to follow. I've picked up the book and tried the CD a few times and it is all very confusing. I'm learning more from free podcasts. $40 down the drain :(
