Improve your skills in Danish

Peter Erkmann, a Master’s student in communication at the University of Copenhagen, has created a free-to-use web site to help people improve their language skills. The site, www.Meet2Talk.com , lets participants swap their language skills (in other words, if you as an English speaker were matched up with a Danish speaker, you should both increase your fluency). If you make progress with the site and your efforts in learning Danish, let our members know by adding a comment below.

I’m curious if anyone knows of a Danish bank that has a partnership with any Canadian banks so I don’t have to open a new account there? If not, that’s fine, it just seems like a bit less of a hassle.

Thanks

Sabs
