This post is a quick update. Tomorrow, I’ll be on my flight to Copenhagen. I’ve finished packing, so I’m relaxing on my last full day in England. It’s been good to come home for the holidays, but I’m ready to go back now.
My CBS courses don’t start for another two weeks, but I’ll keep myself busy in the meantime. I will attend the crash course week and the introduction week this semester as I did at the beginning of the last one. This is sort of like Freshers’ Week for the international students. There are various social events each night. This is a great way to meet new people and to get involved early on.
I’ll start the next step up of my intensive Danish language lessons this coming week. Last semester, I had one three-hour evening class per week. Now, there will be two of these sessions per week.
The government provides these free Danish lessons to foreigners with a Danish address. This is a great way to integrate into society. Almost everyone in the city speaks English, but you’ll get more out of it if you try to learn the language.
Danish is a difficult language, but it’s fun to learn. It’s similar to English, but the pronunciations are tricky. On top of that, unlike in English, where we enunciate each word separately, a sentence spoken in Danish sounds like a rhythm with no pause in between the words.
That’s all for now, folks. I look forward to catching up with friends, exploring more of the city, and I intend to do more travelling. Part two of my journey in the land of the Vikings begins tomorrow.
