Books for learning Danish

Dictionaries:
 
 Gyldendals røde ordbøger (Gyldendal's red dictionaries)
    Dansk-engelsk,  ISBN 87-00-73972-3 (niende udgave, 10. oplag)
    Engelsk-dansk,  ISBN 87-01-09312-2 (11. udgave, 6. oplag)
These dictionaries are very much the standard dictionaries in use. In the same series Gyldendal publishes Danish-German and Danish-French dictionaries plus a couple of others.

They are, however, rather expensive in the States (over 100 dollars the pair). Persons who are just starting out might buy the yellow pocket-size Berlitz dictionary (ISBN 2-8315-0946-7), available in many bookstores. Unlike the Gyldendals books, it does indicate pronunciation, which can be a help to students. Readers might want to stay away from the Hippocrene Practical Dictionary, which does not indicate the genders of nouns.
