Den uhyggelige heks - episode 1 (The Creepy Witch - Episode 1)

September 29, 2017

 

This Halloween (Allehelgensaften) I'm starting a new tradition (en ny tradition). Seasonal periods like Halloween and Christmas are inspiring (inspirerende). I'm writing and re-writing some simple short stories to inspire your creative Danish learning.

 

It´s great training (det er god træning) to read as much as you can and I recommend (jeg anbefaler) you to write your own stories (dine egne historier). Start with simple sentences/main-clauses (hovedsætninger) like:

 

Han var ude i skoven.

He was out in the forest. 

 

Det var mørkt.

It was dark.  

 

Then build on these. 

 

You can write about your personal experiences (personlige oplevelser), keep a diary (en dagbog), write lyrics (tekster) or make up crazy stories (vilde historier). Whatever you choose, you will soon see an improvement in your Danish. 

 

Den uhyggelige heks - episode 1 (The Creepy Witch - Episode 1)

 

Hans øjenlåg lukker i og han begynder at snorke.

His eyelids close and he begins to snore.

 

Han er ude i skoven, sammen med sin gode ven, Isbjørnen Vanilje.

He is out in the forest with his good friend, Vanilla the polar bear.

 

De er ikke ude på en dejlig skovtur, nej, det er de ikke.

They are not out on a lovely forest tour, no they are not.

 

De leder efter den uhyggelige heks, for hun har gemt prinsessen.

They are looking for the creepy witch, because she has hidden the princess.

 

“Se, derovre, Vanilje! Der er et lille hus. Det ser også fuldstændig ødelagt ud.”

“Look, over there, Vanilla! There’s a little house. It looks totally destroyed.”

 

Xander tager sit sværd, og springer op på Vaniljes ryg.

Xander takes his sword and leaps onto Vanille’s back.

 

“Du må ikke flyve i dag, min ven. Vi bliver nødt til at være stille, så heksen ikke lægger mærke til os.”

“You mustn’t fly today, my friend, we need to be quiet so the witch doesn’t notice us.”

 

Isbjørnen begynder at gå på listefødder, mens Xander sidder på skuldrene af ham.

The polar bear begins to walk on his tippy-toes while Xander sits on his shoulders.

 

De når frem til huset.

They reach the house.

 

“OK, må jeg lige stå op på dine skuldre, så jeg kan kigge ind gennem vinduet?”

“Okay, can I just stand on your shoulders and look in through the window?”

 

Vanilje grynter og nikker. “Det må du godt, men pas på du ikke falder ned.”

“Vanilla grunts and nods his head. “You may, but be careful you don’t fall down!”

 

Xander kigger ind gennem vinduet, og han kan næsten ikke tro sine egne øjne.

Xander looks in through the window and almost can't believe his own eyes.  

 

Prinsessen er bundet og sidder i en stor kedel.

The princess is tied-up and is sitting in a cauldron.

 

“Hun dufter dejligt, ligesom kartoffelsuppe,” siger Isbjørnen Vanilje.

“She smells lovely, just like potato soup,” says Vanilla the polar bear.

 

“Hold nu op! Det her er ikke en joke. Og noget siger mig, at heksen har tænkt sig at spise prinsessen,” svarer ridderen.

“Stop it! This is not a joke. And something tells me that the witch intends to eat the princess,” replies the knight.

 

Vanilje lægger mærke til en dejlig blomst.

Vanilla notices a lovely flower.

 

“Sikke en vidunderlig blomst,” siger isbjørnen, mens han tager en dyb indånding og dufter til den.

“What a wonderful flower,” says the polar bear, as he takes a deep breath and smells it.

 

Han nyser kraftigt/voldsomt, og Xander falder på numsen.

He sneezes powerfully and Xander comes tumbling down onto his bum.

 

Den uhyggelige heks vågner op, og hurtig som lynet er hun ved siden af dem, flyvende på sit kosteskaft.

The creepy witch wakes up and appears beside them as fast as lightning, floating on her broomstick.


Fortsættes... (to be continued...)
