Extra Practice

Listen to this list of numbers in Danish and write them down.  There are no long pauses in the audio so, if you need time to think about what you hear, you should  hit the pause button after each number is spoken.  Try writing the numerals, but also try writing the numbers as words (e.g. 51= enoghalvtreds).

Useful Phrases (although, since Denmark deals almost exclusively with e-pay and credit cards, some of this is  becoming less useful!  For tourists, though, cash can still be good to have.  Most places accept Visa, and some accept other cards, but some places only accept "Dankort," a card you can not get unless you have a regular paying job in Denmark.  So in that case, you must have cash).

Tager I imod kort?
00:00 / 00:15
Kan jeg betale med Visa/American Express
00:00 / 00:15
Jeg har desværre ingen kontanter.
00:00 / 00:19
Hvor kan jeg trække nogle kontanter?
00:00 / 00:18
Kan du give tilbage?
00:00 / 00:12
Kan du give tilbage på to hundrede krone
00:00 / 00:20

Note that nogle is pronounced like nogen. (And the "g" is always silent).
