Dane here, I have lived in Munich too and i Loved it... Maybe one difference is that i spoke German, as their English mostly where worse then my German... South Germany is also way different then northern Germany so... Oh and Danes (especially younger then 50) do speak English very well and we understand far more then we can talk.

I don't know if you are trying to take me as a fool or you just don't understand statistical odds and probabilities, however, you don't need to survey literally every single 15-year old in a nation to know the overall outcome. Did you know this? All you need is a large enough representative sample and they are almost a 100% accurate reflection of an entire population. For example, a statistician working for a census taking department of a random nation's government wants to know what the political outcome of an election will be. After the national election polls close on election night in this random country, the statistician and his team of survey takers takes a sample of 1,000 demographically representative voters who voted the night of the election. The statistician sees that in this two-party system nation, one party won 56.8% of 1,000 surveyed voters. He calculated that relative to the entire voting population of 100,000,000 voters that voted that election night, the 1,000 demographically representative surveyed voters reflected the voting patterns of those 100,000,000 voters on election night. He predicts the "margin of error" to be +/- (plus or minus) 0.5%. This means that the the voting patterns of the 1,000 demographically representative surveyed voters are predicted to be 99.5% accurate. While it will take days to add up the 100,000,000 votes that were casted on election night, the statistician has already predicted on the same night that there is a 99.5% chance/accuracy that the winning party will win with approximately 56.8% of the national vote. This is announced to the news and the news reports that it is to be predicted that the winning party has won by about 56.8% of the vote. A few days later when all 100,000,000 votes are counted, it is shown that the party actually won by 57.3%, a margin of error of plus 0.5% compared to what was predicted by the survey of demographically representative voters. Why do you think that the leader of a nation or a winning party is predicted just hours or even immediately after polling booths close on the same night on election night, even though counting millions of votes in a national election takes days; yet the predicted winners and percentages are very accurate to the actual outcome? It's because you don't need to count and survey every person in a nation. You just need a large enough representative sample. 100 people is too small because it could have a margin of error of +/- 10% or more. However, if you survey 1,000 or more people, this decreases the margin of error significantly. 10,000 or more is VERY accurate. Just as long as the people being surveyed are demographically representative of the nation. You don't need to survey millions of people or the entire population. It isn't mathematically necessary. Any statistician will tell you this. Actually, your mathematics teacher would know this. Hell, you should know this. "Every country that participates in PISA must adhere to strict sampling rules to ensure the country’s results are nationally representative of ALL 15-year-old students. Indeed, the decision to test secondary students at age 15 was made in part because young people at that age are still subject to compulsory schooling laws in most participating nations, which provides more assurance that PISA will capture the broadest sample." I don't understand how you could not know this? You're suppose to learn probabilities of mathematics starting in 6th grade.

+Christian Gainey Didn't read all of it, but I did know about PISA, I've actually taken the test, and I also know that 510.000 students cannot represent the educational prowess of millions. And in any case primary and secondary education was not what I was refering to, I was refering to university level education.

The test isn't suppose to represent China, they are suppose to represent only students in Shanghai and this is why it says "Shanghai" and not simply "China". Hong Kong, Macau and Taipei students were also tested by PISA and also scored among the highest in the PISA study. PISA tested students in these territories/dependent regions because they are special categories that act like nations, instead of cities, with their own forms of government, economy, society, culture, laws, etc., which exists very different from the country claiming possession over them. Although Shanghai isn't a dependent territory, it is a highly developed free-market capitalist economy which acts very differently from the communist country it is located in. Due to this, there is generally great interest in the education system that exists in Shanghai, a desire to know how well students in these regions/cities/dependencies, such as Hong Kong, Macau, and Taipei, perform and also a desire to know and understand the educational attainment in these areas for international comparison purposes. This is why PISA tests them. I know this, PISA knows this, all the governments and education departments among many nations that have used PISA know this. Did you know this? PISA doesn't have a problem with this, I don't have a problem with this, the governments and education departments among many nations that have used PISA don't have problem with this. You're the only person in the world that seems to have a problem with students in Shanghai being tested and yet, you haven't heard about PISA until I told you yesterday. Is there some pressing reason why you are so desperate to discredit an already credible study and organization like PISA and the OECD (OECD is the non-American organization headquartered in Paris, France which does the PISA study), even though you didn't know about them until I mentioned them? Is it because it goes against your beliefs and what you WANT to be true? Reality, like PISA, is objective, unbiased and exists factual and accurate independent of whether or not you want to agree with them. It doesn't matter if you disagree with them for your convenience. It's there. It exists. There is nothing you can do about it. You can't just disagree with something just because you don't like what you're seeing or hearing and then come up with irrational reasons why it isn't true. "I don't know where you get your info from, but I'm fairly certain your source isn't biased towards American ascendancy at all, not one bit (sarcasm). Oh, but it's not accurate! Oh, Shanghai is not a country, thus, for some stupid reason, you should disregard the entire study. Oh, I don't understand how statistical odds and probability works so you should throw out the study because it's only a demographically adjusted 510,000 students spread among more than 60 participating nations, governments and education departments! Oh, I don't like what I am seeing so I am going to irrationally nit-picket the shit out of that credible study until you believe my bullshit because you should believe some random jackass on the internet rather than a well-known and trusted credible study and organization such as PISA and OECD." What lame-ass excuses. I know ego is blinding and irrational, but the world still doesn't work your way. The scores have been consistent. Test after test, wealthy and developed Asian territories and countries on top, followed by highly developed Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United States and nations in Western Europe, followed then by second and third world nations. For the 2009 test, the U.S. overall score was 496 (82.6%) compared to Denmark's 499 (83.1%). For the 2003 test, the U.S. overall score was 489 (81.5%) compared to Denmark's 493 (82.1%). For the 2000 test, the U.S. overall score was 498 (83%) compared to Denmark's 497 (82.8%). If the PISA results were totally inaccurate, then the results would not have been so consistent over the years considering the 15-year olds in the U.S. and Denmark in the 2000 study are not the same 15-year olds in the most recent 2012 study, as well as every other study. If the study was totally inaccurate, the outcomes of nations would also be haphazard, random and chaotic. For example, wealthy and developed Asian and European nations would be scattered around and be perhaps at the bottom of the list while poor nations in Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America would be scattered towards the top. The outcomes and positions of wealthy and developed nations compared to poor and developing nations would be totally scattered and completely random test year after test year and would not be as consistent as the test scores between Denmark and the U.S., as well as all the other nations, over the years. Also, most importantly, PISA tests are demographically adjusted to represent the population that is specifically being tested; so the tests are adjusted for age, gender, immigrant status, race (for the U.S. test) family income, region, etc. "Every country that participates in PISA must adhere to strict sampling rules to ensure the country’s results are nationally representative of all 15-year-old students. Indeed, the decision to test secondary students at age 15 was made in part because young people at that age are still subject to compulsory schooling laws in most participating nations, which provides more assurance that PISA will capture the broadest sample." There are several other credible education studies and surveys that show that the percentage difference in educational attainment or general knowledge in U.S. is statistically insignificant compared to other wealthy and developed nations. TIMSS is another international test taking survey conducted every 4 years and tests the general math and scientific knowledge of 4th and 8th grade students in many nations and shows that the U.S. performs relatively well compared to other developed nations consistently year after year. The General Social Survey sampled people in the U.S. and people in at least 20 other developed nations and showed that the general basic scientific knowledge among the American adult population was similar to and not statistically significantly different to most other developed nations...obviously because the U.S. itself is a developed nation.

+Christian Gainey Right, first off 510.000 15 year olds is 0.15% of your population. And Shanghai isn't a country, it's a city. The PISA test isn't even remotely accurate, you really believe a country with such a wealth of income inequality as China can boast the best school system in the world?! Also, as it so happens I went to high school with Frederik and Felix, the two boys who made that rap video. Their actual rap names are Top Cat and Klaskefar and they're not famous nor professionals, they just enjoy rap. "Lyt til mig bro"(listen to me bro) is meant as a joke on American rapper stereotypes, they're not actually serious and the video was shot on a night out. Some of this you should be able to figure out by the obviously crap breakdance, their rap names and the 2000 views.

I don't know if it was meant as a compliment or not, but I think it's the lack of an accent tbh. That's what a lot of Danes try to go for as well, cause the Danish accent is generally disliked by Danes. I would never be able to guess where you were from simply from listening to this video. I might be able to rule out a few places, but that's about it. It seems to be very "clean" English. No real accent at all. :)
Michael Woodward (4 года назад)
Ikke rigtigt synes jeg men måske er det fordi jeg prøver at lære og tale dansk når jeg er her i danmark... cultural immersion at its best!
Michael Woodward (4 года назад)
I'm not sure if I should take that as a compliment or an insult? I'll go for a compliment. Not "American way back" - born and raised in Southern Ohio. Put me near my friends and family and I'm sure you'll hear the hillbilly come out.
Michael Woodward (4 года назад)
haha he is really from ohio. blame it on living abroad for the last 7 or so years of my life speaking 3 different languages. ;-)
kriss3d (4 года назад)
English is mandatory from 3rd grade in Denmark. Everyone speaks it. In fact. English is the second language of Denmark as of now. It was made public a few years ago.
Daniel T (4 года назад)
Is he really from Ohio? cause that accent is really really danish.
TheHavoc09 (4 года назад)
This guy must be American way back because he sounds like a Dane speaking good English (we are Brtitish english taught and much more proper than generic American).

Golda Fania (6 лет назад)
He does not really have an American accent. He has a danish/british accent when he speaks English. (I have an American accent) =/
