Today beautiful Nadja Bender and her loyal Great Dane teach us how to speak Danish in the first episode of our latest series, Model Mother Tongue. The 23-year-old supermodel was first scouted by one of her neighbours a couple of years ago; it took a while, because everyone’s well fit in Copenhagen anyway. Now listen as Miss Bender teaches us favourite phrases like “I would like two Danish pastries please” (“jeg vil gerne have to wienerbrød tak”) and “fried pork and parsley sauce” (“stegt flaesk med persillesovs”), then try them out yourself along Copenhagen’s colourful fairytale waterfronts. Vil du gerne I seng med mig?
