MEET KSENIJA, THE POLYGLOT

In the 60th episode of Humans of SDU, we are joined by Ksenija! She is a student from Latvia who managed to learn Danish in ONE YEAR. Yes, you read that right! Tune in to find out how that is possible. We also talk to Ksenija about languages, having an international family and student jobs in general.

  • What was Ksenija’s language-related summer job?
  • What was the first Danish series Ksenija watched?
  • Where does Ksenija’s brother live?

Today’s hosts: Navina and Franka!

How did we find Ksenija?

We are always pleasantly surprised when we see someone reaching out to us to do an episode, and Ksenija was one of those! She discovered the podcast through one of our previous guests and decided to share her love for languages with us.

Funnily enough, a day before the recording Franka found out they were taking the same course – oh, how small the world is!

New drinking game: chug a beer for every language Ksenija knows…

Portrait of Ksenija

“I try to speak as much Danish as possible, for example like going to the shops, because there is no other way to practice your speaking rather than just speaking. And for example when I hear a Dane speaking so not understandable to me, like mumbling, then I would say “Kan du tale lidt langsommere?”, like can you speak a bit slower, can you please rephrase the question again…!”
