Not that it matters that much believes the theologican. After all Christ was born several years before we have always believed and not around Christmas and so on. He believes that what is important is what is being celebrated/commemorated and not when.
Whatever, I'll leave further comments on this to FasterB.

And Polyesco, it's my pleasure.
I didn´t watch the news tonight - I slept after two nights with work

Can you remember the name of the theologican?

I guess Mary and our Minister for Development Christian Friis Bach may now know each other very well. They have worked a lot together in the recent past - both for meetings and on official trips abroad. I guess that he maybe too will travel with Mary to Malaysia later this month

(...)

Mary spend the entire forenoon at the new language centre in Aarhus. And here she is learning about tele-education/remote-education (I'm not sure what the English word is.
Some 5.000 students are attached, some in DK but most outside DK, and they will get a course in Danish, either because they have found work in DK or because they intend to study at a Danish university.
The whispering interview was with a woman who is learning Danish because she has a job in DK. (Her Danish was very good BTW).

I'll assume Mary will have lunch with the Regent Couple who are in Aarhus right now for the opening of the annual Culture Week. - And then she'll probably hitch a ride on a helicopter back to Copenhagen for her second event today, in Helsingør at 19.00.

Thanks Dazzling, Maggiedenmark and Muhler

Here is another video where Mary very frankly joking with her first time with the difficult Danish language.

TV 2 | ØSTJYLLAND | Mary åbner sprogskole | Nyheder | Aarhus

And a picture: https://sphotos-a-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/h...88916393_n.jpg

Mary:
When you move to a new country, there are many things to relate to and many things to learn. And the language is one of the most important things. For me it was important to learn Danish the best I could and as quickly as possible.

But in the beginning I could not at all make heads or tails in a sentence ... Nor a word. When did the sentence start? When did it end?

For example hva'sir'du? (what'do'you'say?) When I heard people say that I walked around and wondered.. what sort of word is that??!! (Mary makes matching grimaces and people laughing)

When I became brave enough to ask I got the explanation that it was actually three words: Hvad siger du? (What do you say?)
So no, it's not the easiest language to learn.

Yeah, poor Mary.

I noticed she spoke considerably slower than usual and her pronounciation was much more careful.
Basically she spoke like our Marie, same speed, same pronounciation.

Yes me too, she normally speaks considerably faster. But she holds a speech for others who have just learned Danish so a speech with little slowness is probably a good idea

Pictures (but pretty bad quality)

Many thanks Nordic. I should keep a list of what some of these patronages represent.
