'''Danish''' is a [[Scandinavia]]n language spoken in [[Denmark]] and some areas of Greenland. It is closely related to [[Norwegian phrasebook|Norwegian]] and [[Swedish phrasebook|Swedish]], and some speakers of the three languages can understand the others. In writing, the difference between the Danish and Norwegian languages are not bigger than the difference between English and American English, though it will often be harder in oral conversations. These Scandinavian languages are North Germanic, strongly influenced by Low Saxon (German).
