You will learn some essential telephone vocabulary, at the same time hearing and reading the examples of formal and informal telephone conversations. The majority of the phrases can also be used in face to face conversations. Every phrase is spelled in Danish, translated into English, and pronounced in Danish, giving you time to repeat after the teacher and learn the correct pronunciation of every phrase. You can optionally learn the phrases by heart and record your performance. This will give you the advantage of being able to spontaneously speak Danish on the phone without preparing to every single conversation. The course is very well structured and there is a pleasant and recognizable routine, that will make your learning a habit. Please see the free promotional video to get the idea.

I graduated in 2007 from the University of Copenhagen in Danish and Communication. Then I studied Spanish Language and Culture for a year at the University of Barcelona. I am fluent in Spanish, as I am speaking and writing Spanish every day during the last 10 years. I developed a know-how in language learning that I offer at Udemy. The method consists of repeating simple everyday phrases after the teacher, while you are presented with the written phrase and the translation. Thus, you activate conscious and automatic learning resources, which makes your learning "effort free" and effective. The only requirement is that you are persistent with repeating, while you understand literally what you are saying. I am currently offering courses in Danish and Spanish, in collaboration with a professional and native Spanish teacher.
