Danish is not an issue at all. We all speak English at work and my free time is spent with people that are happy to speak in English. I have had some rather fun experience at the supermarket though, but that is just funny and a part of living abroad.

People here don’t necessary work less hours they are more flexible in using their time.
Danish students are fluent in English so no problems communicating with them but their academic culture is very different and unique even compared with that of other Anglo-saxon countries.
