The text starts simple but, even early on, gives a real feel for what Danish culture is like. The typical chapter has a short dialogue, glossary, grammatical notes, and exercises, as well as "ordsprog" and "talemaader," proverbs and sayings which give you a great introduction to the sly and ironic Danish sense of humor. The book provides an especially clear grasp of the "Jysk folkekarakter," the character of the people of Jutland, which is pretty impressive for an introductory language-learning text. If you work at it, after a while you even come to bits and pieces of the Ugly Duckling in Danish, the language of Hans Christian Andersen. This book may be a Special Order, but in my view it's well worth waiting for.
