An Englishman in Copenhagen
Men jeg prov at tale dansk.
One day, I will be fluent in this bloody language. 😉
I’ve decided to give myself six months to really make some strides.
It’s time to get serious.
Haha… I like that you’re trying, and please continue to learn it – it’s a beautiful language when you master it!
Oh, and an assignment then; translate this into English:
“Ensomheden husker det tosomheden glemmer”.
One word will puzzle your mind.
Ok, that’s tricky…remember the loneliness… err, i’ll get back to you on the rest!
You’re right, it’s a beautiful language. Or at least it becomes more so the more you learn.
Ok, I’ve had some help. . . loneliness remembers, togetherness forgets.
Very profound, but not always true in my experience. 🙂
after 10 days in berlin, i could speak as much german as i could danish. of course, i *know* a lot more danish, but my god german is easier to speak (and be understood)
Aaron>> “Togetherness” is probably the best word you could use in that sentence, so well done – even though I’d translate it into something like “Loneliness remembers what togetherness forgets”. Lyrics are written by Mikael Simpson; I could hand over a couple of his albums if you want to hear more from him – it’s my favorite Danish musician!
Russel>> Yes, German is very easy to speak if you just “talk away” and straight from the heart; if you want to make it 100% correct, it’s a whole other story (I’ve been taught German for seven years in school and still can’t speak it!).
Mark, thanks. I’d like to hear more Mikael Simpson. He sounds like my kind of chap!
Russell, that’s a dispiriting story! Danish is about as hard as it gets I reckon. I guess that will make it even more rewarding when I can eventually speak it. How was Berlin? See you soon.
I am curious to find out what blog system you’re using?
I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latfest blog and I’d like to
find something more risk-free. Do you hage any recommendations?
