I've started learning Danish with this book and I think it's great! You DO need the tapes if you want to get anywhere. But the exercises, drills, etc. are great in my opinion (I HAVE BEEN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHER FOR YEARS).
This kind of book is better approached with a "no rush" attitude and you will get better benefits. Also have the TEACH YOURSELF NORWEGIAN and I think these books are worth the money. But remember! It all depends on you! It's not fair to give it up and then blame it on the book... :)

I have found this book very challenging to work with. When I bought both the book and the accompanying cassette I was a little disappointed. The book itself is very good for explaining the grammar in the danish language but I found that the cassette does not play some of the conversation dialogues in each chapter which I would have found useful. The cassette was a little disappointing too.Anyone who has learnt danish will know just how hard it is to pronounce some of the letters and for me the tape does not go deep enough into the actual knowledge of pronouncing these letters. I also found that the speakers in the conversation speak very fast at times and I do not feel that this was at a level suitable for beginners.However, my efforts to persevere must have paid off because I am now able to write reasonable letters in danish to my danish relatives and on visiting them recently they said that I had done well to reach a reasonable level in 8 months!!I have managed to use this book and cassette only through making time and effort and would advise anybody thinking of buying it that they will need to commit time and patience because this is certainly not the idiot's guide to learning danish!!!

Bente Elsworth presents a clear and truly helpful guide to the basics of the Danish language. At the start of the book there is an indispensable pronounciation guide and throughout the book are places for self testing; essential for successful language learning. Tak, Bente!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, as long as you have the CD 14 Oct. 2004
By Angela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book in anticipation of a two month stay in Denmark. I find that it is fairly complete in the amount of vocabulary covered, and very helpful. After faithfully going through the entire book, you should be able to purchase a grammar and a dictionary and continue your studies fairly easily by studying the grammar and reading a Danish newspaper.

However, a warning: DANISH IS NOT A VERY PHONETIC LANGUAGE! It would be A WASTE OF YOUR TIME to purchase the package of the book that does NOT include the CD! You will not be understood, or understand people around you. (By the way, this is a situation unique to Danish: Norwegian and Swedish are totally phonetic languages). I highly recommend this book.
