Danish Language Resources is an interactive document that collects resources for English speakers who are learning the Danish language. I started learning Danish through Duolingo in December 2014, because DuoLingo did not have an Icelandic course. It still doesn’t! But Danish did a lot to help me read the signs in Iceland.

This document exists to collect resources from around the Internet, principally YouTube, to help students learning Danish and provide a catalog for my own use. Please feel free to suggest additional material.

Swedish Language Resources is an interactive document that collects resources for English speakers who are learning the Swedish language. After I finished the Danish language course on Duolingo, I really wanted to keep my streak up. I’ve since lost the streak, but kept it up at the time by completing the Swedish language course. The similarities and differences are quite interesting between the two languages.
