norwegian and swedish ppl can understand eachother but danish sounds like mongoloid norwegians no offence to any1
Depends tbh, if we make an effort we can all understand eachother but really if we talk fast paced and with slang you catch like every third word.
as norwegian its easy to understand both, swedish more over danish, however some would need more time to get used to it, also ye some dialects makes it harder to understand.
Personally i understand pretty much everything a norwegian guy says, however swedish is fucked up (no offense). Take in mind, that as the other guy said, speaking fast and with dialect makes it really hard.
- kind regards from pretty much the only non-toxic danish guy. (Atleast in mm)
Been speaking swedish for over 10 years. It's quite easy to understand. anyone who has been in any type of "competative" scene has probably played with swedes numerous times, not only that the language is pretty simular, and we tend to visit each others countries quite often in general. Like in my city there's plenty of Swedish people running restaurants and bars, and they communicate with their native language and we with ours and it goes fluently. Ontop of that alot of channels (Used to atleast) Had swedish shows running daily on TV, including swedish subs. You must be really dumb especially if you're norwegian to not grasp Swedish. Just my opinion
swedish is ez, danish pretty ez but they have potatoes in their throats so kinda hard to hear what they say often
Danish is verbally a lot different from both Norwegian and Swedish, but when written it's almost identical to Norwegian and very similar to Swedish.
Danes usually have no issues understanding Norwegian, but we sometimes face issues understanding fast Swedish.
question to OP, can estonian people communicate ez with finns? i heard the language is really similar
Most of the Estonian people can, but Finns have a trouble to understand Estonians.
We have some common words, but not that many.
I would rather converse with a Norwegian than a Scanian (south Sweden). Danish is as obnoxious as it gets. I don't understand why they don't pronounce the letters in their words. And they use disgusting gutteral sounds and horrible 'R's like Scanian.
Danes understand quite a bit norwegian and some swedish. But i don't think it works the other way around.
Us Danes are born with a potato in our mouth.
i have never had any problem communicating with either swedes or norwegians. you might have to think for a second or two if you dont catch a word, but thats about it
I find danish and swedish really easy, but I know my danish bf has a lot of problems understanding swedish.
Norway and Denmark liked our language very much so they made their own version of it and call it their own language. The fins made up their language while drunk, don't know what happened there. But Sweden is like king in nordics so it's like the universal language, (everone in norway, denmark and finland knows and can speak it).
my favourite is faroese language
I understand both swedish and norwegian -----------------------.o
I was seriously thinking of learning Swedish or Norwegian, since I spend a lot of time in Scandinavia during summer holidays every year. Do you know which one of these is/would be easier to learn (consider grammar, pronunciation etc.)
