The Danish Study
Getting started


Below you will find a quick walkthrough of the tools on this site. Please note that some of the features are only available when you are logged in.

Choose language for translation and for the word lists
After clicking on verbs or vocabulary in the top menu, you choose which language you wish to have for translation of the verbs and for second language in the word lists.


Verbs

Whole sentences or only verbs?
In the top area of the left column (whole sentences) you choose from working with:
  1. Whole sentences
    Here you practice the conjugation of the verb in the context of a whole sentence:
    jeg er sulten
    jeg var hjemme
    jeg har været i biografen
    ...
    In this mode you will practice the pronunciation of the verb in connection with other words. At the same time you will get familiar with a large number of common phrases. You can hear the pronunciation of the verb alone by clicking on nutid, datid etc. next to the sentences.

  2. Only the verb
    Here you practice with the verbs alone
    er
    var
    har været
    ...
Two ways to practice
There are two ways to approach the conjugation of the verbs:
  1. Choose one verb at a time
    Choose conjugations and verb in the columns to the left. You can have the verbs listed alphabetically or by the frequency by which they occur in the language. A translation will be visible when you hover the mouse over the verbs.
  2. My verbs
    Under My study in the right column you will find My verbs. Click on a conjugation and choose the verbs you wish to learn. Your settings will be remembered by the system, and you can use this to practice in a much more systematic and efficient way. You can always change your settings and add/remove verbs.

    Flexlist:
    Use this list to focus on specific verbs while you flex between conjugations. You choose which conjugations to practice in the top area of the left column. You can practice more conjugations simultaneously.


Vocabulary

Use this tool to learn new words. You can work with two kinds of word lists:
  1. Fixed word lists (in the left column)
    Here you can practice the names of the weekdays, the numbers, time expressions, colours and many other things.
    Some of the lists are very long, so please begin by adapting them to your own needs (click on a list, then click adapt).
  2. My word lists (in the right column under My Study)
    Click on new word list to create your own word list(s) where you can practice with words of your own choice.
    You can make lists on themes like food, adjectives, work, or lists with words from your textbook, or...
    You can edit your lists easily and add new words.

    Tips and tricks
    • During the process of practicing with a list you can add the words causing you trouble to a repetition list (press or click +). This will allow you to run through the hard words separately once or twice again and make your work more efficient.
    • Practice both to and from Danish (change direction)
    • You can copy the fixed lists from the left column to My Study and then edit or expand them freely (click on the list, then click on adapt)
    • Use the lists as small dictionaries (show alphabetically)
    • Print a copy and take it with you (show alphabetically, print)
Some good advice:
  • Only practice with a few new verbs/words at a time. By focusing you will learn much faster.
  • Type your answers as long as you are insecure. Later you can practice in a faster way by leaving the fields empty and press Enter, then the system will give you the right answer.
  • Use the attached audio! Repeat the pronunciation to yourself (say it out loud). You will not only learn the pronunciation by doing this but it will also help you a great deal in remembering the words.
  • To practice frequently and continuously is one of the most important things, so try to find ten minutes in your daily routines where you make it a habit to log in and do you exercises.
