Lesson 1 - Introduction to Danish
What is it?

The pronouns are the words we use to refer to people or things like, you, it, they and so on.

The Subject Pronouns are used when they refer to the do'er of an action, i.e. they are eating.

The Rules

The subject is the do'er of an action.

Please note:

In Danish there are two pronouns for it:
den (common noun class)
