Always the trendsetter, i-D has premiered the first episode from its new series, Model Mother Tongue, where the catwalk's hottest faces teach you essential phrases in their native languages.

In episode one, Fendi campaign star and Scandi stunner Nadja Bender, enunciates key phrases in her native lingo, and takes a shot at debunking Danish cultural myths.

Also featured in episode one: i-D provides a chic must-have video guide on how to eat, drink and party like a true Dane, straight from one of the country's most stylish exports.

The video's chic pastel color palette is a relaxed backdrop to learning phrases such as "Jeg vil gerne have to wienerbrød tak?" (I would like two Danish pastries please) and with a teacher as fun as Nadja, there's no excuse for being less than word-perfect.

The original series is currently available weekly on and on i-D's YouTube channel.

As one of i-D's most international series to date, forthcoming episodes of Model Mother Tongue will feature lessons from model representatives in Asia, Europe, America and Australasia showing you how to get by in their home towns.
