Danish Language

Danish is one of five Scandinavian languages and the official language of Denmark. American students seeking a Danish language education program may pursue non-degree language courses, a degree in Danish at a 4-year university or study abroad programs in Denmark.

Inside the Danish Language

Danish is spoken by roughly 5.5 million people living in Denmark, Greenland, the Faroe Islands and in areas of Germany that surround Denmark, according to the UCLA Language Materials Project (www.ucla.edu). Although many Danish natives also speak English, learning Danish is an excellent way to become part of Danish society and take part in the unique culture. More importantly, being able to communicate in Danish is essential for employment in Denmark.

There is limited information available for those interested in the Danish language because overall, very few people speak it, and it is isolated to a small region in the world. Still, Study.com offers information that can help you make your education and career decisions.
