Four months in Denmark and I still don't know a single sentence in Danish, what a shame! Well, there's no need, since Danes speak English perfectly and somehow I have picked up the most important words like Udsalg (Sale) and Husk Kort (Remove your Card) very quickly..
However, the article by  Figuri , my fav life blogger, made me think the sooner I start with Danish language, the better.

Read about her experience at Speak-dating during  the European Day of Languages  bellow and see for yourself the tough times I will have to face. Cos yes, from now on, I'm attending school again and studying  Danish language , *fingers crossed*.

Danish table: 
Me: Can you teach me some basic phrases? I want to brag about it to my friend who moved to Denmark... 
Danish Guy: *holds up a primitive phrase*..."hdsfsgdfjsgdfjdfhsbf" 
Me: Ehm... can you repeat that? 
DG: repeats 
Me: confused, not sure if guy actually said something or yawned 
Me: You are not saying half of the letters in those words. How do you know which one to say an which one not to say? 
DG: Depends. We have silent Gs, silent Ds... many silent letters. And E is the trickiest one - you have seven ways to pronounce it! Let´s try some numbers! *shows a strange chart with numbers and a primitive sentence (I am ... years old), pronounces it absolutely unrecognizably*. He is 43. 
Me: What? 43? How do you say REALLY? In Danish? VIRKLICH? So Danish men don´t age? 
DG: Thank you. And you look very beautiful! (Says it in Danish, then trying to teach me some nice Danish phrases.) We can talk more about Danes in a café somewhere... 
Me: I compliment him on speaking the hardest language of the world, slowly trying to leave the table.
DG: Thank you, it is very hard to learn for foreigners, yes. Oh and - add me on Facebook! *writes name on my notes*

Štyri mesiace v Dánsku a ani len jedinú dánsku vetu neviem, hanba mi! I keď, povedzme si úprimne, Dáni vedia tak super po anglicky, že mi to jednak ani netreba a jednak, dôležité slová ako Udsalg (výpredaj) a Husk Kort (vytiahnite kartu) som sa akosi..ehm..naučila veľmi rýchlo.
Článok mojej najsamsuper Life blogerky Figuri ma ale priviedol späť k tomu, čo som tušila už dávno - čím skôr s týmto neartikulovateľným jazykom plným dávivých zvukov začnem, tým lepšie.

Prečítajte si úryvok, čo zažila pri dánskom stole na Speak-datingu v rámci Európskeho dňa jazykov v Prahe. A držte mi palce, pretože za pár dní začínam so štúdiom dánčiny a bude to fakt masaker..
A nezabudnite mrknúť na jej blog! (Teda ak si pod Life blog chcete predstaviť aj niečo iné, ako načančané fotky s ovsenou kašou a tulipánmi, či nezlomnú snahu blogerky inšpirovať vás k žitiu svojich snov, ale hlavne k hlasovaniu v nejakej súťaži..)

Ja: Can you teach me some basic phrases? I want to brag about it to my friend who moved to Denmark... 
Dánsky lektor: (Zdvihne papierik s trojslovnou vetou.) „Hdsfsgdfjsgdfjdfhsbf." 
Ja: Ehm... could you please repeat that? 
Dánsky lektor: (Zopakuje, čo povedal.) 
Ja: (Zmätená som. Bolo to zívnutie? Zakašľal? Nedusí sa?) 
Ja: You are not saying half of the letters in those words. How do you know which one to say and which one not to say? 
Dánsky lektor: Depends. We have silent Gs, silent Ds... many silent letters. And E is the trickiest one - you have seven ways to pronounce it! Let's try some numbers! (Ukazuje tabuľku s číslami a jednoduchou vetou - Mám ... rokov. Uši nastražené, no i tak nerozumiem. Mimochodom, má 43.) 
Ja: Whaaat? 43? How do you say REALLY in Danish? VIRKLICH? So Danish men don't age? Dánsky lektor: Thank you. And you look very beautiful! (Vzápätí to povie po dánsky, potom sa ma snaží naučiť zopár milých dánskych fráz.) We can talk more about Danes in a café somewhere...
Ja: (Zložím mu poklonu za to, že hovorí asi najťažším jazykom sveta a pomaly sa dvíham od stola.V duši sa mi rozlieha pocit beznádeje a sklamania z mojich cudzojazykových buniek.)
