Engelsk Dansk Vittighedsbog 1 (The English Danish Joke Book 1) is an excellent way for Danish people to practise their English – and for foreigners who are trying to learn Danish.
Great jokes like:
A primary school teacher was sitting on a bus. She was fairly sure that she recognised the man opposite her. “Excuse me,” she said, “but are you the father of one of my children?”
If you're struggling, there is a translation on the following page.
En folkeskolelærer sad i bussen. Hun var næsten sikker på, at hun genkendte manden, der sad overfor hende. “Undskyld mig”, sagde hun. “Er De far til et af mine børn?”
