Not English





 

Not English



You'd be surprised how often I'm asked that question. It's usually by people from English speaking countries who can't speak any other language themselves. :XD:

And I google translated all of it from English, even the Danish, just for the hell of it. :XD:

That is odd as the Nordic languages are generally listed as being easier ones for English speakers to learn.

Norwegian and Swedish are supposed to be easier than Danish, according to the Foreign Service Institute.

Don't ask me though as I picked Japanese to learn which is usually ranked as one of the hardest. Probably should look into either German or Swedish.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JstwmqL-Fts PewDiePie apparently can't tell the difference between Danish and Finnish... and he thinks that it's "kinda hard to tell the difference" between Norwegian and Finnish...

I used Google Translate for Not English and it was brutal. It didn't translate perfectly but it's close enough. I'll let you guys make your own corrections.

Google's Translation for Not English:

Sweden: I've been wondering, why do you have a fish on your head?

Norway: In this way I have hands free.

Sweden: It's too silly.

Sweden: Having a fish on his head makes as much sense as having a boat on the head.

Norway: A boat? Why would you have a boat on your head?

Denmark: Hello boys! May I also join?

Sweden: Why do you have a city on its head? It has nothing to do with the sea.

Denmark: Yes, it is so. It is a sunken city.

Finland: You can ... to make fun of my hat?

Sweden: No, Finland. You always think everyone is making fun of you.

Norway: What?

Denmark: What did he say?

Iceland: I also have a nice suit! Look! Demon mittens!

Sweden: Stop! Now it's too silly!

Norway: They are beautiful!

Denmark: They're creepy ...

Finland: You can make fun of me ...

America: What the hell is going on!?!!?

China: I do not know!

America: Shut up!

Iceland should be saying:
Ég hef einnig gaman af fötum! Sjáðu! Djöflalúffur.
:p

The Swedish really looks like it was directly translated from an English sentence.

As a Dane, will I say Danish ;)
But the Nordic languages are some of the hardest languages to learn in the world.

I was able to understand most of that from German and a little Norwegian :) I'm all for this being done more often...

As someone born in America, I take pride in just being able to speak very little French and Dutch. This comic has made me decide to learn a Nordic language. Any suggestions on which? o.o
