I'm not with much time too.
I started 2 weeks ago, but, like, during 12h or 18h studying only.
You want to see something funny?
Dreng means Boy
Drenge - Boys
Drengen - The boy
Drengene - The boys
It sounds easy, doesn't it?
The girl: Pigen
The girls: Pigerne
The plural of "Drenge" is not "Drenger" due to something related to consonants, but it's not about ONLY finishing with consonants, it's also about stressed syllabes and if it's polisyllabic or monosyllabic, some shit like that.
The saddest is that i search my questions on Google and i can't find shit, i'm almost getting desperate, hahahahahahaha.
I'm not having difficulties, i just want to find a REASON and LOGIC, so i can structure the words properly next time i learn a new one, if you get what i'm saying.
Also, do you remember that "Pigen" and "Drengen" stuff?
To some words you don't add -en, but -et, due to the gender being common/neutral, and, "den/det"(the, it, that) is also applied the same logic SOMETIMES, if you want to say "it is(..)" i guess it is always "den er", some crazy shit like that.
An apple becomes "et aeble", not "en aeble", en is used to 75% of danish nouns and to common genders only.
Guess what again?
I don't know to discern accurately words which are neutral and those which are common, in Portuguese most of the words finishing with A are feminine, we know it by heart, like you, spanish people also know about the genders while growing up, same for French ones.
Despite i don't know a lot of German, i get what you saying, i feel the same.
My aunt is about to take to Denmark, and, you know...
I have to invest hard into this shit, i'm brazilian, 2 years remaining and i want to be good, at least, the good of our marvellous English language is that there are no genders on articles(if there were, let's have some 100% accurate logic behind that, at least, PLEASE!!)
Sorry for the big ass text bro, i'm just giving you some discernment of what i've been through.
