IMO that’s not something we would EVER hear Mary say. IIRC Alexandra or Marie has also said they had to insist Danish was spoken. I seriously doubt Mary would ever do such a thing.. which we can hear.

Didn't Fred once admit that they only spoke English at home?

I’d readily believe it, if they do. If they spoke Danish, I think Mary’s Danish would be better. She might not get rid of her accent but it would probably be less pronounced and I’d imagine she’d have an easier time with the sounds that she’s still not capable of making. In any case, her vocabulary and general understanding of the language would be better.

But again, to be fair, Henrik already spoke 5 languages before he learned Danish (I read that somewhere). Alexandra also spoke more languages and Marie is also quite capable in that department. Was it four languages she spoke before learning Danish?

I can forgive Mary for not being as gifted as the rest of them. I’ll certainly never be great at math. I cannot, however, forgive that she doesn’t care to improve.


Marie speaks French, Danish, English, Spanish. There was a clip when she visited Mexico, when you could hear her speak Spanish while she was shown around a Garden. But unfortunately, I didn't safe the link here, and didn't upload the video to our youtube chanel. I believe it was on a trip with Joachim with Daisy's costume exhibition.

I would have thought that Mary's Danish would have improved as her children got older and that they would have pushed her to perfect the language.

Perhaps this would have been the case if only she'd had more regular and lengthy contact with the children.  Thinking  Of course, they would have to be using Danish as the home language too, and thanks to Fred, we all know that isn't the case.

Remember when Mosh, Fred and kids were at a public event (theater?) and Christian asked his mom: "Did you understand this?" in Danish....Mosh was looking to the side in order to know when to laugh...

I had forgotten all about that.   Star

You are so right-they were sitting in a theatre watching some sort of performance and Mosh looked lost.

that is so wrong.  Mary learned just enough to "get the job" and has never cared about excelling as Alex did.
