Danish has developed from Old Norse, spoken in Scandanavia. It is a language of culture generating many pioneering major works of literature; think of Kierkegaard, Hans Christian Andersen and Karen Blixen. Historically, the Danish combine an initial reserve with a friendly outlook. Embrace Danish and embrace the culture of ‘hygge’. ‘Hygge’ roughly translates as the notion of a cosy and warm ambience with friends and family, and the concept comes with its own nouns and adjectives!
