Danish phrases and voice recognition
What you need to know about Danish phrases and common sentences? Danish can be tricky to pronounce as an English speaker when you're new to the language. Vowels can be pronounced in 17 different ways! That's why text-based courses or language books are less likely to be useful as you won't have feedback on your pronunciation. Conversational practice requires being able to talk with a Danish speaker, and in-person classes are inflexible for your schedule and don't let you learn at your own pace.
