I am very envious.


Explanation:
The Danish isn't slang. It's just an ordinary phrase, and there are not really any alternative translations unless you know whether the envy in question leans more toward admiration or resentment.

both of the above


Explanation:
The sentence might be basic Danish, but the Danish sounds odd in the first place, on its own at least, and given the context other translations would be possible, for example introducing the object of the envy/jealousy. Leaving the sentence unqualfied by any "softeners" such as quite or rather sounds slightly odd in English too, but again the context decides such.
