Grammar

LearningPosted by Louise Sand Fri, October 24, 2014 16:37:44
It’s okay to study grammar. Especially if you enjoy it. If not, then forget about it. As long as you do your flash card repetitions and listen A LOT, you will be fine. If you do love grammar however, then be careful not to overdo it. Remember, the Danish language is spoken by people in flesh and blood, not by computers. Many of the things we Danes say all the time are impossible to explain even to the best grammarian. And furthermore if you become so good at grammar that you only ever spak 100% correct Danish sentences, then… I am sorry to tell you this, but I have to be honest … you will sound like a joke. And you will probably speak very slowly too. With that said, it doesn’t hurt to learn the most basic rules for singular and plural, past and present constructions. It can speed your learning process and help you speak more correctly so people will take you seriously. But if you hate grammer, then just rely on your ear and listen, listen, listen…
