      scrumptious! Much more imaginative than the German version! If Merkel and her party manage to get an absolute majority, maybe I'll move to Denmark, lol. Big drawback - I don't speak a word of Danish, and I hear it's a very difficult language.

        Danish is somewhere "between" English and German.  Learning the vocabulary ought to be simple for someone who knows both English and German well.  The pronunciation would probably be the biggest stumbling block.

          because all the movies and television from America and other English speaking countries were in English with subtitles.  Everything in Germany is synchronized to German.
