Speak Danish like a native: A weekend in Copenhagen
Denmark's capital is an ever-popular city break destination, and with good reason. It's home to the hippy enclave of Christiania, Michelin starred restaurants like Noma, a cluster of atmospheric jazz clubs, fantastic museums, and the multi-coloured harbour district of Nyhavn. Easy to navigate by bike, Copenhagen always has something new to offer. When visitors head to Copenhagen, they will only scratch the surface if they can't speak Danish. For starters, meeting Danes will be easier. Locals love to help out foreigners with their vocabulary and pronunciation, and will give you a lot more time if you attempt to master a few words. You don't need to be fluent. A few courses on apps like Babbel will be enough to help you make friends much more easily.
Denmark also punches above its weight in the world of cinema. Big names like Von Trier, Dreyer, Refn, and Vinterberg have all won numerous awards around the world, and created masterpieces. You've probably seen some of them, including "Dogville", "Day of Wrath", and "Festen". However, if you can't speak Danish you almost certainly relied upon subtitles. That's a great way to get a feel for the narrative, but subtitles are a distraction for real film fans, and they can miss jokes and subtle lines - sometimes ruining the whole movie. Instead, fans of Danish cinema can brush up on their vocabulary, and head to a local "biograf" to enjoy films on a whole new level.
