NO MORE DANGLISH

Language events for companies, schools, and professional organizations

Kay Xander Mellish's "Drop Dit Danglish" events are a fun and interactive way to improve your English. They cover everything from recent changes in English to how to talk to bosses and cops to how to remove "Jantelov" from your spoken and written English. We also discuss common mistakes Danes make in English, how to avoid bad direct translations, and why it's risky to use English profanity around native English speakers. We'll make you look good in English!

 

What audiences say about Drop Dit Danglish events:

“Your presentation was great fun, very interesting and a source for reflection. I am very happy that you are willing to share so that we can look back and keep in mind the corrections to our old (obsolete) habits. I promise, I’ll never ‘revert to’ anybody ever again!”

— HELLE BRØCHNER, REVISORGRUPPEN.DK

 

“Tak til Kay for et underholdende indlæg til vores konference. Vi blev opdateret på den sproglige udvikling i amerikansk engelsk og ikke mindst forskellene i dansk og amerikansk kultur. Det er så vigtigt, at vi med sproguddannelser stadig følger med i den sproglige udvikling, især nu hvor sproglige uddannelser beskæres/nedlægges. Derfor er det godt, vi har Kay til at holde os ajour. Vi anbefaler hendes forestilling, hvor hun involverer deltagerne med humor og indsigt.”

— LENE LILIAN BRAUER, ENGELSKE SPROGNØRDERS NETVÆRK I HK
