Beginner's Danish offers basic language instruction in the national language of Denmark, presenting grammar, vocabulary, and common phrases in clear, concise lessons. Perfect for both classroom and independent students, each of the 13 lessons opens with dialogues on topics such as greetings, family, athletics, dining, illness, holidays and celebrations.
Following the dialogues are vocabulary lists, explanations of grammar, and exercises. Two audio CDs accompany the lessons, providing correct pronunciation of all the vocabulary and a selection of the dialogues, with pauses for repetition by the student. Also included are an exercise key, Danish-English and English-Danish glossaries, as well as an introduction to Danish history and culture.
