anonymous asked:

Denmark = Sjælland, The Netherlands = zeeland. Both can be interpreted as zealand. The truth is that it was a Dutch (from the netherlands) "explorer" (Abel Tasman) who "discovered" new zealand, so technically it's named after the dutch zeeland. Tasman, as you can see in the name, also "discovered" Tasmania. (He originally called it van diemen land) None of this information is important or interesting, sorry

actually i find this very interesting. i had no idea, i thought it was britain that “found” australia. i also didnt know thats where “tasmania” comes from. thanks for sharing, anon, really this is very interesting!


Language moodboard: Old Norse

Old Norse was a North Germanic language spoken by inhabitants of Scandinavia and inhabitants of their overseas settlements during about the 9th to 13th centuries after which Old Norse started developing into the modern North Germanic languages. 


Hamlet Act 2 Scene 2 Gifset- I tried to learn my favorite Hamlet soliloquy which is “Oh What a Rogue” in what would be Hamlet’s native language of Denmark which would be Danish. But, it was a lot more difficult than I had originally thought. However, I think Danish is a beautiful European language, and I think it would be fascinating to learn it at some point or another. 


“…Sometimes we like to look the other way, you can easily become unsure in thinking it is me (who is going to be bullied) next time. But we must interfere and the more we do, the easier it will be when we stand together and remember each other. We must be good friends so that there is room for everyone in the class.”

Crown Princess Mary has participated in the introduction part of the Mary Fonden and DR Ultra’s video “Courage”. The video aims to promote the idea that “everyone has the right to belong”, by encouraging classmates to speak up for one another when one sees another being bullied. The video highlights the important message that, “It takes courage to be a good friend. If we are many who are brave, there will not be room for bullying. Show courage.” 

You can view the video Courage here (in Danish) and here (in English).
