The most impressive features of the Danes are in my eyes their trust in each other and their courage to confront each other with different and sometimes critical opinions.
My case is probably unique, because we actually did not choose Denmark - we chose a programme which included a period of study in Denmark.
I think the openness and free spirit of Danish people.
The Danes' general attitude to criticism and different opinions. Their self-confidenceand courage to confront each other with different opinions and views are to me the most impressive feature of the Danish people. I trust that this mentality also helps Denmark correct its mistakes so that the society will always progress.
These are the rare merits you don't always find in other countries in general. I think this derives from the confidence of Danes in your culture and your country. I also like Danes being open-minded and non-aggressive.
I think the kids perhaps drink too much at a young age.
I was invited to a Danish family to celebrate Christmas together. Among the guests were me (Chinese), a Kenyan chap and the South African boyfriend of the family's youngest daughter. We sang Danish songs, had Danish rice pudding, waved Danish flags and danced around the Christmas tree. I did enjoy very much the feeling of "hygge" in the Danish family, with an international flavour.
If Danish students don't take initiative to talk to you, don't take for granted that they are cold. They are just shy. Actually they are very warm-hearted and open-minded.
