It's not what you're like, it's what you like.
Except of course that's complete nonsense. But in the spirit of contrariness, and testing my dubious half-remembered HTML skills, here is my amazon wish list.

. . . but I am learning. So far I can say:

1. the words for Sister, Brother, Mother, Father and all composites (eg. Moster)

2. kys og knus

3. hej hej!

So if I want to send hugs and kisses to your Aunt as I'm leaving, I'll be OK. Anything else and I'm stuck.

Danish is a fiendishly difficult language to learn. The first page of my coursebook includes a paragraph beginning with the daunting sentence 'Danish has nine vowels'. Oh well it could be worse I suppose. I could have decided to learn Russian.

Note to all Danes: I am not Danish. I do not speak Danish, or at least not yet.
