Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The Danish alphabet is a little different from the English one. What are the last three letters of the Danish alphabet?

Answer: Æ, Ø, Å

The Danish alphabet actually has 29 letters, whereas the English only have 26. That's because the Danish version includes 3 other letters: Æ, Ø and Å. Those letters are also used (probably) in most of the words in the Danish language, which might be why the language is so difficult to learn for other nationalities.
2. What do the words "Mor og far" mean in English?

Answer: Mom and Dad

A Danish family involves a "Mor, far, bror og søster". Meaning "Mom, dad, brother and sister".
3. If you were a Dane, how would you tell your partner "I love you"?

Answer: Jeg elsker dig!

"Jeg kan lide dig!" means "I like you!".
"Jeg er vild med dig!" means "I'm crazy about you!".
"Jeg hader dig!" means "I hate you!".
That's why it would make the most sense to say "Jeg elsker dig!" which means "I love you!".
4. Which of these words is Danish for "dog"?

Answer: Hund

"Hun" means "she".
"Han" means "He".
"Hest" means "Horse".
5. Which of these would you eat when you are feeling hungry?

Answer: Mad

"Fod" means "Foot".
"Mod" means "Bravery".
"Hånd" means "Hand".
So you would of course be eating "Mad" which means "Food".
6. Which of these might you wear when you are cold?

Answer: Jakke

"Kul" means "Coal".
"Bog" means "Books".
"Bamse" means "Teddy".
Which means you might wear a "Jakke" which means "Jacket".
7. Complete the following line in Danish: Sommer Efterår Vinter _______.

Answer: Forår

"Sommer Efterår Vinter Forår" is the right way to write the four seasons in Danish. Translated directly: "Summer, Fall/Autumn, Winter, Spring".
8. What is the opposite of "Dag"?

Answer: Nat

"Dag" means "Day" so then the opposite would be "Nat"-"Night".
"Nej" means "No".
"Ned" means "Down".
"Net" means of course "Net".
9. Which of these English words isn't the same in both Danish and English?

Answer: Television

The Danish word for "Television" is "Fjernsyn". Even though, those words are different, we still use the English abbreviation "TV".
