Den Can’t Speak Danish

Dear Optimists,

The longer I work on this blog, the more I wish I could speak/write Danish. Since a large percentage of our readers are from Denmark, it just seems like something I wish I could do!

That, and sometimes I worry that my Danish friends on Facebook are saying stuff about me right in front of me and I don’t even know it. Especially since my name is actually a Danish word…


P.S. Why do I have a weird feeling that our Danish readers might respond in Danish just to make me more paranoid? 😉

More often than not, people wonder what I'm up to. I'm a people watcher, and love to tell a stranger's story, as I see it. If you see me reading or writing in a coffee shop, there's a good chance I'm making up a story about you at that moment. I'm a visual person who loves finding inspiration in my surroundings, and believe that sometimes the smallest detail can tell the majority of the story, if you have the sense to recognize it.

  1. Damn! When I read this post, I thought “I’m going to write my comment on danish”, but you read my mind.
    Nadia should give you a quick course.
    But anywho, Vi kan lide Den, lige nøjagtig som han er.

  2. I’m curious, you’re an american citizen but living in Denmark? Can you tell me how you got permission to stay in denmark? Work related? Did you meet Nadja first and then decided to move with her to Denmark?
    I’m in a situation where I’m studying in USA, and found an american boyfriend and I’m going to return to Denmark this summer. So it would actually be great to get some good tips in that situation. 🙂

    Thanks, and Den – People love you. No worries. 😉

    1. Hey Sofie,
      Jeg tænkte, jeg lige ville svare dig på dit spørgsmål. Den og jeg kender ikke hinanden i virkeligheden, og er ikke kærester. Den bor i USA, jeg bor i Danmark – ingen af os har planer om at flytte over til det pågældende land, så vi er nok ikke de rigtige at spørge, desværre. Men jeg fandt et link til dig, så du kan undersøge det nærmere: – håber det hjælper dig.

      Ha’ en dejlig dag 🙂

  3. aww.. 😀 I would like to learn Danish as well! haha! 🙂 learning foreign languages makes me excited… especially with the thought of actually learning it in the country where it is spoken.. isn’t that wonderful? haha! 🙂
