About this class: This course is intended for students who have already taken Danish I or Danish II. We will continue reading from “En gave til min kone,” a book designed for beginning adult learners of Danish. The focus of the class is on pronunciation, vocabulary development, and having fun reading a story. All students will get the opportunity to read aloud and to translate with help and feedback from the instructor.
Note: We will be starting a few pages into the book. A summary of the first pages (in English) will be sent to new students before the class starts, so everyone will know the story up to the point where we start. Books can be ordered here for $20: https://www.letsdansk.com/product-page/en-gave-til-min-kone
