In Danish Classes & Tips

My selection of books to read in Danish



Hope the new year has started well for everyone out there who is learning Danish! Throughout my time at school learning Danish, I gathered a list of books that were recommended by fellow students, teachers but also Danish friends and colleagues.

I want to share this list with you, as it definitely helped me to learn and improve. I didn’t get to read all of these books, but I am sure this will be helpful. This is my own list of “best” books (as well as the one suggested by my network). If you just started to learn Danish, I think these books will definitely be a struggle. Focus on kids books, or alternatively books that you can borrow at school. I would recommend to start reading those from Module 3/4 and up, because you will/should have enough vocabulary and won’t have to take a dictionary to translate every single word.

This is a work in progress list, if you have read other books and think they would be valuable for other Danish learners to read, please feel free to comment below and I will add them to the list 🙂 Alternatively you can send me an e-mail from the contact form.

Happy reading!
