About the Danish Language
Today, well over 5 million people around the world speak Danish. It remains an official language in both Denmark and the Faroe Islands. Additionally, communities of speakers exist in many places, including Germany, the United States, Brazil, Canada, Greenland, Argentina and other parts of Scandinavia. Danes use the Latin alphabet. This language remains relatively complex to master, due in part to its 27 distinctive vowel sound variations and numerous irregular verb conjugations.
Today, distinct Danish dialects and sub-dialects still exist, although speakers from one region can understand and communicate effectively with speakers using a different dialect. From South Jutlandic dialects to Bornholmian, to the overseas communities, Danish remains widely understood by native speakers.
