When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Denmark, they said...

"Denmark is a great place to live, but there are a few things expats should be aware of before moving. It is important to research the cost of living in Denmark, as it is one of the most expensive countries in Europe. Expats should also be aware of the language barrier, as Danish is the official language of the country. It is also important to research the job market in Denmark, as the unemployment rate is relatively low. Additionally, expats should be aware of the weather in Denmark, as it can be quite cold and wet during the winter months. Finally, expats should be aware of the cultural norms in Denmark, as there are certain expectations of behavior and etiquette that should be followed," explained one expat living in Denmark.

"No matter how much people told us that we didn't need to know Danish, we did. Everyone speaks English, but without knowing the native language, we have felt on the outside of many social occasions," said another expat in Copenhagen, Denmark.
