In addition to being the official language of Denmark, Danish is also widely spoken in several other European countries including Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Northern Germany, which is home to an estimated 50,000 Danes.
If you have business counterparts in any of these countries you will need to learn at least the basics of the language. Of course the more fluent you are in Danish, the better it will be for you especially when you are engaged in business negotiations with any company located in the countries mentioned above.
Studies have shown that the best way to learn any language is through an immersive experience, which means spending time in that country and conversing with the people in that language. But not everyone can afford to do that.
The next best alternative is to hire a professional who speaks the language. Many people who speak Danish sign up on freelance sites such as Freelancer.com where they offer one-on-one lessons to anyone who wants to master the art of speaking fluently in Danish.
