1. Some have asked me how we pronounce "Hygge" Hygge - a how to li.st:
  2. Danish is without a doubt a difficult language to learn and understand for foreigners
  3. My dad who was from Venice (Italy) always said it sounds like we have a potato stuck down our throats
    He also refused to learn danish for the first 2 years he lived here - proud Italian also old-fashioned
  4. But I will admit he was kinda right - it is a strange language. If it's s a beautiful language is hard to judge, I can't tell tbh.
  5. I do know that most Danes including myself tend to have this weird way to pronounce English unless there is alcohol involved. The danish is a challenge to get rid of when it's combined with english
    I speak fluent English after a couple of beers
  6. Anyway
  7. Here's an explanation of how to pronounce ANY danish word I've found - might shed some light on this strange language 🤷🏻‍♀️
  8. Static
  9. So forget the H in Hygge, do a drunken Y speed up the GG and swallow your tongue as you say the E, smile and look confident
  10. Piece of cake right?
