The Danish language
Danish is a Scandinavian language and belongs to the North-Germanic languages, just like Swedish and Norwegian. This language is spoken by about 5.5 million people. Danish is not only spoken in Denmark. It also has official status in the Faeroe Islands and Greenland. Danish is even an officially recognised language in the north of Germany. Historically, Danish was greatly influenced by German, whereby the pronunciation differs from Swedish and Norwegian. Danish pronunciation is very difficult for others to learn. Denmark also has many different dialects but everyone is fluent in and speaks the standard national Danish variant.
