How much of the local language do you need for daily living? Are local language classes/tutors available and affordable?

Not much. Most Danes speak English fluently. Some elderly Danes do not speak English, but they do speak German. - Jul 9, 2016
Absoutely none. - May 1, 2014
None. Almost everyone in town speaks English very well. - Feb 8, 2014
It helps to read a little since not much is written in English except in the tourist paths. - Aug 7, 2011
Practically none. Most Danes speak English, and even if you try to speak Danish to them, if they can tell you are a foreigner they will switch to English. - Jul 22, 2011
