Language Lesson





 

Language Lesson



Denmark wanted America to say this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQkvqJJvR9U because Danes love to make foreigners say it.

All the other Nordic countries joke that Danish sounds like Swedes talking with a potato or porridge in their mouths, while Danes joke that Swedes sound like drunk Danes, and Norwegians sound like drunk Danes singing. :XD:

This one was hilarious. When I flew to Norway I was surrounded by a large group of teenage Danish boy scouts, so I heard Danish for 13 hours (practically non stop) and became acquainted with the language. When I finally got to Norway it seemed to me that Norwegians were singing all the time! A year later I heard a Norwegian and a Swedish chatting in their respective languages, and the Swede sounded like she spoke Norwegian with her mouth full of food XD

@christmassysocks and trust me it never gets old for us, no matter how old we are when we meet people from non scandinavian contries, we at some point try that line with them :)

The reason we say it is because in WW2 the Danish border guards would screen homecoming Danes by making them say: "Rød grød med fløde."
Due to the difficulty in pronunciation, german infiltrators could not pass the test XD
